She remains a member of the 'Merry Models' company to support a younger sister in a fashionable boarding school, but when the company is stranded in Sycamore Junction, Kansas, Lucille decides to conceal her former life, settle down there andmake a home for her sister, Claire. She opens the 'Jardin de Danse and Ice Cream Cabaret' and into peaceful Sycamore Junction introduces the tango, d anced a la Broadway. The revolt of the whole town, led by the minister (whom she finally marries), against the Ice Cream Cabaret; Lucille's struggles;the disclosing of her stage life, and her final happiness make an interest ing story, full of delicious humor. In the dramatic production, Rose Stahl scored a decided success as Lucille." - from the dustjacket. With advertisements verso dustjacket.

BOND, Larry. Dangerous Ground. New York: Forge, (2005). First Printing. Pp.(12),[13]-336. Map. 8vo, blue cloth with metallic lettering to spine. "The USS Memphis, a dilapidated submarine that that should have been mothballed decades ago, has been given one last mission by the newly elected presiden t. The task: To sneak illegally into Russia's coastal waters and recon the leaking nuclear fuel containers hidden on the floor of the Arctic Ocean. More than just an environmental nightmare, this radioactive burial ground houses enough nuclear capability to destroy most of America's major cities. The Memphis's commander, Lowell Hardy, had been looking forward to flag rank and pleasant duty upon the sub's decommissioning. Now he is trapped in an inconceivably dangerous and illegal mission which could easily end his career, if not his life and the lives of his crew. But it's the crew who feel Hardy's tension as he tyrannizes everyone on board to ensure they'll be readyfor anything: Jerry Mitchell: a former naval pilot with political connecti ons, he is a novice submariner, unprepared for his demanding job as a weapons officer. Central to the Memphis's mission, Mitchell may be its greatest liability . . . Or its ultimate salvation. Dr. Joanna Patterson: The seniorcivilian scientist, appointed by and reporting to the president, she is a world-class expert on nuclear fuel contamination--and every bit as demanding as Hardy. Patterson and her partner, Dr. Emily Davis, soon find themselves battling flaring tempers, faulty machinery, lethal radioactivity, and theraging arctic seas. The submariners: Seething with rage at their Captain B ligh-like commander and the equally domineering Joanna Patterson, they are also at war with Jerry Mitchell, and one another. Like the captain, they feel they deserve better, not this antiquated relic, not this hostile scientist, not this novice weapons officer, and definitely not this disastrously dangerous mission. Nor is the mission what it seems. Lurking beneath the frigid, black, radioactive waters is a secret far more deadly than anything naval command could imagine--a secret so menacing the Russian Fleet is hell-bent on destroying the Memphis and all who sail in her." front dj flap. Remainder dot on top-edge, else very good in unclipped dustjacket. 20.00

152 BOURINOT, Arthur S. LAMPMAN, Archibald THOMSON, Edward William Archibald Lampman's Letters to Edward William Thomson, 1890-1898. First Edition

BOURINOT, Arthur S. Archibald Lampman's Letters to Edward William Thomson, 1890-1898. Edited with an introduction, annotations, a bibliography with notes, and his "Essay on Happiness" by Arthur S. Bourinot. Ottawa : Publishedby the editor at 158 Carleton Road, Rockcliffe Park, (1956). Limited Editi on of 500 Copies. Pp. (6),1-74. 8vo, stapled printed yellow card covers. Wicken : "Archibald Lampman : An Annotated Bibliography" B164. Edward WilliamThomson (b. February 12, 1849, Toronto township, Peel County, Ontario – d. March 5, 1924 in Boston) was a Canadian journalist and writer. "Thomson an d Lampman had been friends since the publication of 'Among the Millet' (1888). Thomson was then editor of 'The Globe', Toronto, and he wrote a friendly editorial suggesting government recognition and fostering of Canadian genius by the appointment of men like Lampman to better positions in the CivilService. On his part, Lampman tried to place some of Thomson's stories wit h Scribners and Harpers, where Lampman's work frequently appeared. In fact,no Canadian poet living in Canada, (I say, 'living in Canada', because Rob erts, Carman and Stringer , all had appreciative American admirers, but allthree, for a time, at least, livied in the USA), before or since (except p erhaps Service) has had such appreciative public in the States. Early in 1891, Thomson left 'The Globe' to become editor of 'The Youth's Companion'. That is really the beginning of the correspondence. These letters were written during the years 1891 to 1898, starting when Lampman was 31 years of ageand ending in the year before his death. [...] The letters reveal the man and poet as he was in real life from day to day and hour to hour. Sensitiveand retiring, not always sure of himself, yet ambitious and anxious to get himself out of the civil service where he felt he was in a rut." - from th e introduction, p.6.

November 8, 1932, Philadelphia. "To Chet Kinsman, space held the promise of peace and beauty that Earth denied him -- yet it was Kinsman who stained the purity of space with murder. His atonement shaped his life and the destiny of his planet -- and drew him inexorably to use, and finally betray, those closest to him. Preceding the widely acclaimed 'Millennium' in the author's gripping chronicle of the next quarter century, 'Kinsman' shows the eventful, expanding space program from today's space shuttle to the first permanent moon base, through the eyes ofits dedicated -- and driven -- hero. Drawn from today's and tomorrow's headlines, it is a vivid picture of what the future will mean in human terms." - from the introductory preamble. Nick to head of front outer hinge, else very good.

Tall 8vo, printed blue paper wrappers, fre nch flaps, dark blue lettering to front and spine, triangular porthole cut to front cover. "This poem was written from September to December in 1974, & from all appearances seems to bridge a gap between the politics of 'At War with the U.S.' & the cultural narrative of 'A Short Sad Book'. It began with a sentence heard in the author's head: The snowball appears in Hell every morning at seven. It was said in the voice of Jack Spicer. The author knew something was up, & went deliberately to hear some more voices as best he could, & hurried to write down what they were saying. Astute readers willrecognize some of them. Allo means all. Phanes means appearances. The poem tries not to get one without the other. The scientific usage of the term a ttends the shifting colours of mineral formations, such as stalactites, lights in a cave. The word could also be translated as those things which are other than what they at first appear to be, all taken together." - from thefront flap.
