188 BALLARD, Robert D., with Malcolm McCONNELL Adventures in Ocean Exploration : From the Discovery of the Titanic to the Search for Noah's Flood
National Geographic, Washington, D.C., 2001, ISBN:0792279921 
BALLARD, Robert D., with Malcolm McCONNELL. Adventures in Ocean Exploration: From the Discovery of the Titanic to the Search for Noah's Flood. Washin gton, D.C.: National Geographic, (2001). First Trade Edition. Pp [1]-288. Illustrated. Index. 4to, blue cloth, silver lettering to front board and spine. Contents : 1. The Ancient Depths. 2. The Mysterious Sea. 3. Linking theShores. 4. The New World. 5. Ocean Highways. 6. War at Sea. 7. Science Ben eath the Sea. 8. The Living Ocean. 9. The Museum of the Deep. "One of our leading oceanographers and a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, Ballard describes plunging 12-000 feet to the floor of the Atlantic, finding new life in the superheated water around hydrothermal vents on the Pacific seabed, and locating scores of wrecks, from Phoenician galleys to the Nazi battleship Bismarck. We peer from the cramped cabin of a research submarine at bioluminescent fish glowing in the sunless depths, gasp for air as the bathyscaphe Archimede fills with acrid smoke a mile beneath the surface of the sea, and join a crack team of technicians on the bridge of a research ship as they “fly" a state-of-the-art unmanned submersible over the Titanic's ghostly hull. But this lavishly illustrated book does much more than chronicle Ballard's own unique experiences: Intertwined with his vivid first person narrative is a concise history of humankind's age-old relationship with the oceans. Along with the giants of modern undersea exploration – Cousteau, Beebe, Piccard - he introduces the fabled seamen of the past, from ancient Phoenician, Polynesian, and Chinese sailors to such great names as Magellan, Columbus, Drake, and Cook. He explains how ships evolved from simple coastal craft to the most complex machines known to man, and shows how the search for new trade routes and the sheer love of adventure led captains everfarther over the horizon. He traces the development of navigation, naval w arfare, marine science, and much more. Capturing all the irresistible lure of the sea in nearly 200 vivid illustrations and a lively text that spans thousands of years of seafaring and oceanography, this is a book as expansive as its subject and filled with fascinating information, stirring history,and a full measure of the infectious excitement of discovery Robert Ballar d knows so well." - from the dj.

191 BALTHUS) FAYE, Jean Pierre Balthus : The Drawings : Balthus: Reflections on Drawing. First Edition in dustjacket
Adam Biro / Archambaud, Paris, 1998, ISBN:9782876602441 
(BALTHUS). Balthus : The Drawings. Balthus: Reflections on Drawing. Jean-Pierre Faye: Balthus and the colour of lines. (Paris) : Adam Biro / Archambaud, (1998). First Edition. Pp (5),6-143,(1). Square 4to, white cloth, blue lettering to spine. "The esteem in which Balthus' paintings are held has long overshadowed the importance of the art of drawing in his work. There has been no prior publication on the subject of his drawings alone, despite thefact that they have played a major role throughout Balthus' artistic caree r. He was only thirteen when he illustrated "Mitsou", for which Rilke wrotea preface in 1921, and has never stopped drawing since. As with all works by master draughtsmen, Balthus' drawings are more than preliminary sketchesserving to work out the formal composition of a future painting. They poss ess their own radically independent quality, whatever the medium used (pencil, charcoal, pen and ink, pastel, or watercolour). Each drawing should be considered as a separate work, produced in and for itself, regardless of its apparent degree of spontaneity or completion. Balthus Drawings include sketches, portraits, still lifes, landscapes, and nude studies, which stand out as an essential if little-known facet of the works of a major twentieth-century artist." (from the dj). Contents : When you draw you are at the heart of the world...: Balthus in his own words; A line of drapery; A gentle fold; Flesh of the universe; Standing nudes; Sleeping girls; Bared breasts; Silent life; A faraway look; Black lines; Balthus and the colour of lines (by Jean-Pierre Faye).

BANNISTER, Jerry. The Rule of the Admirals : Law, Custom and Naval Government in Newfoundland, 1699-1832. Toronto : "Published for The Osgoode Societyfor Canadian Legal History by University of Toronto Press", (2003). First Edition. Pp (8),[ix]-xix,(7),[3]-423,(9). With tables, diagrams and a few illustrations in the text. 8vo, art-illustrated cardcovers with black spine."The Rule of the Admirals examines governance in Newfoundland from the rul e of the fishing admirals in 1699 to the establishment of representative government in 1832. It offers the first in-depth account of the rise and fallof the system of naval government that dominated the island for more than a century. In this provocative look at legal culture in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Newfoundland, Jerry Bannister explores three topics in detail: naval government in St. John's, surrogate courts in the outports, and patterns in the administration of law. He challenges the conventional view that early Newfoundland was a lawless frontier isolated from the rest of theAtlantic world, and argues that an effective system of naval government em erged to meet the needs of those in power. The Rule of the Admirals sheds light on one of the most misunderstood chapters in Canadian and British colonial history. Drawing on extensive archival research as well as a broad range of secondary sources, Bannister provides a groundbreaking reinterpretation of a critical period in the island's colonial development." - p.[i]. "The Rule of the Admirals opens exciting new vistas on the early socio-economic history of Canada's most recent province" -from the cover. Chapters : 1. Introduction; 2. The Fishing Admirals System; 3. An Unruly Set of People: The Struggle for Judicial Authority; 4. The Establishment of Naval Government; 5. A Fief of the Admiralty: Newfoundland under Naval Rule; 6.

196 BANVILLE, John Prague Pictures : Portraits of a City. First Edition in dustjacket..
Bloomsbury, London, 2003, 
BANVILLE, John. Prague Pictures : Portraits of a City. (London) : Bloomsbury, (2003). First UK Edition. Pp. 244. Small 8vo, illustrated paper-covered boards. "Since the days of Emperor Rudolf II, 'devotee of the stars and cultivator of the spagyric art', who in the late 1500s summoned alchemists andmagicians from all over the world to his castle on Hradcany hill, it has b een a place of mystery and intrigue. Wars, revolutions, floods, the imposition of Soviet communism, or even the depredations of the tourist boom afterthe 'Velvet Revolution' of 1989, could not destroy the unique atmosphere o f this beautiful, proud and melancholy city on the Vltava. John Banville traces Prague's often tragic history and portrays the people who made it, theemperors and princes, geniuses and charlatans, heroes and scoundrels, and paints a portrait of the Prague of today, revelling in its newfound freedoms, eager to join the European Community and at the same time suspicious of what many Praguers see as yet another totalitarian takeover. He writes of his first visit to the city, in the depths of the Cold War, when he engaged in a spot of art smuggling, and of subsequent trips there, of the people hemet, the friends he made, the places he came to know."
