104 AINSWORTH, G. C. Introduction to the History of Mycology. First Edition in dustjacket
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge / London / New York / Melbourne, 1976, ISBN:0521210135 
AINSWORTH, G. C. Introduction to the History of Mycology. Cambridge / London / New York / Melbourne : Cambridge University Press, (1976). First Edition. Pp (8),vii-xi,(1),1-359,(5). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to red panel to spine. "Dr Ainsworth gives a straightforward account of the main views held about fungi for the past three millennia and thedevelopment of the study of fungi as a branch of science for the last 250 years. The existing literature is widely scattered and much of it suffers from difficulty of access. In this volume there is documented an outline of the development of the main areas of mycology, with emphasis on the solution of the major problems that have confronted students of fungi and novel discoveries which have given new insights. A number of important themes form the basis of the account, each one being traced from early times to the twentieth century. The themes are arranged in the chronology of their appearance in mycological studies. Most chapters are thus self-contained. [...] Whilst an elementary knowledge of mycology is assumed, technicalities have been kept to a minimum so that not only mycologists but other biologists and historians of science can understand the history of the development of knowledge of an important group of organisms." (from the dj). Contents : Preface. 1. Introduction. 2. The origin and status of fungi. 3. Form and structure. 4. Culture and nutrition. 5. Sexuality, cytology and genetics. 6. Pathogenicity. 7. Poisonous, hallucinogenic and allergenic fungi. 8. Uses of fungi. 9. Distribution of fungi. 10. Classification. 11. Organisation for mycology. Epilogue. Penned page numbers to rear pastedown, related photocopied pages stapled to rear flyleaf, else very good in rubbed and nicked dustjacket. 45.00

109 AIRTH, Rennie. Once a Spy. First Edition in dustjacket.
Jonathan Cape, London, 1981, ISBN:0224019023 
AIRTH, Rennie. Once a Spy. London: Jonathan Cape, (1981). First Printing. Pp. (4),5-245,(1). 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "Poor Sophy. She was pushed to her death from an eighth-storey window and they calledit suicide. Blaney remembered her from Berlin all those years ago -- that maniacal laugh of hers with the remorseless rhythm of a police siren. People were always reminding Blaney of something he already knew: he was not cutout to be a spy. That's why he'd left it all behind in the early 1960s and taken to selling people 'security' against a rising tide of armed crime. I t was currently his opinion that there was no such thing as security, just as there was no such thing as an ex-spy. Here he was, seventeen years later, with McIver breathing down his neck to discover why everyone connected with the Berlin operation was suddenly dropping dead. It was an interesting enough question, since Blaney had a fine chance of being next." - from the dustjacket. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. Uncommon. 100.00

(6),vii-viii,1-149,(3). 8vo, illustrated brown, white and green card covers with black and white lettering to front cover and to brown spine. "It's one thing to sign on for the long and lonely apprenticeship that is the life of a writer; most writers have, or eventually develop, a certain talen for that kind of solitude. But when it comes time to publish that first book, the experience of crossing the line from private to public space can be daunting -- even overwhelming. 'First Writes' explores the trepidations and trioumphs of becoming apublished author. In it, Canadian authors describe their 'first writes' by writing openly, sometimes scathingly, and often hilariously, of their expe ctations and insecurities, humiliations and triumphs at every stage of publication. In this collection, novelists, playwrights, poets, filmmakers, andshort story writers offer anecdotes, musings, and reminiscences on the oft en bewildering process of having a first book published." - from the rear cover.

AKUTAGAWA, Ryunosuke. Hell Screen / Cogwheels / A Fool's Life. With a foreword by Jorge Luis Borges. [Introduction by Kayuza Sakai. Introductory note translated by Eliot Weinberger. "Hell Screen" translated by Takashi Kojima."Cogwheels" translated by Cid Corman and Susumu Kamaike. "A Fool's Life" t ranslated by Will Petersen. "A Note to a Certain Friend" translated by Beongcheon Yu.]. (Hygiene, CO): Eridanos Press, (1988). Pp. (10),xi-xx,(2),3-145,(3). 8vo, illustrated grey card covers with black and white lettering to front cover and spine, French flaps. Volume 2 in The Eridanos Library. "Thethree works presented in this volume are among the most signification expe riments in Japanese modern fiction. They combine the technioques of the novella, the diary and the impressionistic prose poem. In 'Hell Screen' we aregiven the Faustian tale of a court artist in feudal Japan who sells his so ul to complete a flawless rendering of Hell -- at the cost of his daughter's life and subsequently his own. 'Cogwheels', apparently completed on the very day Akutagawa committed suicide, is a diary in which the artist struggles with the fear of losing his mind. Fantasy has now become indistringuishable from reality as Akutagawa's magination loses control and the icily transparent figures of obsession spin through his mind like whirling cogwheels.'A Fool's Life' consists of poetic, exquisitely crafted jottings dealing w ith events of daily life: quotidian anxieties emerge in grotesque or distorted forms, mingled with elements of pure fiction, references to beloved authors and books, moral and philosophical reflections, parables and metaphors." - from the front flap.
