181 ALVORD, Douglas On The Water : The Romance and Lore of America's Small Boats.. First Edition in dustjacket
Yankee Books, Dublin, New Hampshire , 1988, ISBN:0899091571 
ALVORD, Douglas. On The Water : The Romance and Lore of America's Small Boats. Text and illustrations by Douglas Alvord. Dublin, New Hampshire : Yankee Books, (1988). First Edition. Pp (6),[7]-160. Oblong 8vo, brown cloth spine, brown paper-covered boards, with dark blue lettering to spine. Brice Douglas Alvord, (b. December 11, 1946, Portland Maine). "Small boats have always been an essential part of American life, but their social, historical, and cultural significance all too often has been overlooked. On the Water pays tribute to these boats and to their designers and builders. The book focuses on some of the watercraft that were introduced or are indigenous to America's eastern coast and waterways, and explores their history and evolution. Such traditional craft as the Grand Banks dory, the Adirondack guide boat, and the New Haven sharpie, as well as various styles of canoes, dinghies, and sloops, are described and depicted in finely detailed black-and-white drawings and beautiful full-color paintings. Beginning with an illustrated explanation of the basics of small boat design and construction, On the Water takes the reader inside the boat shops where history is built every day. Master boatbuilders share their thoughts and feelings about their trade, showing work in progress on re-creations of classic styles, or new designs inspired by traditional craft. "Necessity has been the commissioner of boat desgns, and specific local conditions and available materials the developer," writes Alvord. "Consequently, the seawortny Maine lobster boat has spawned many small power boats; the Chesapeake skipjack has inspired more than one fast pleasure boat; and both the eighteenth-century peapod and the canoe have influenced contemporary rowing oats. Most of these boats were developed hundreds of miles from each other, and the skills and designs were passed on largely by word of mouth, yet there is a common theme that seems tohave influenced boat design for centuries. Common sense and experience are the best teachers. Workbpats might be expected to be purely utilitarian, a nd their construction for the most part is straightorward and practical. But out of that simplicity often comes a sweet sense of beauty." The beauty that is a boat comes acoss to mariners and landspeople aiike in On the Water. Those interested in Americana also will appreciate the introduction to anart form that is as mucn a part of our country as are barns, folk crafts, and white-steepled churches." (rom the dj. Chapters : 1. Boat Basics; 2. The Native American Boat; 3. Gone Fishing; 4. The Lobsterman and the Boatbuilder; 5. Bugeyes, Tongers, and Watermen; 6. Sport and the Marshmen; 7. Flat-Water Sailing; 8.

Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1972, ISBN:0870703843 
AMBASZ, Emilio (ed.). Italy : The New Domestic Landscape : Achievements andProblems of Italian Design. New York : The Museum of Modern Art, in collab oration with Centro Di, Florence, (April 1972).

With 520 illustrations (124 in color). 4to, white paper covered boards, black lettering to spine, in a printed glassine dustjacket with fivepieces of cut-out objects illustrative of Italian design inserted into jac ket as issued. "During the last decade, the emergence of Italy as the dominant force in design has had a profound influence in Europe and the Americas. This phenomenon is important not only becasue of the high quality and diversity of the forms produced, but also because it has generated a lively debate on the sociocultural implications of product design, raising questionsof vital concern to designers throughout the world. For many designers, th e aesthetic quality of individual objects intended for private consumption has become irrelevant in the face of such pressing problems as poverty, urban decay, and the pollution of the environment now encountered in all industrialized countries. Consequently, they are increasingly shifting the focusof their attention from the well-designed object to man's total environmen t, seeing the designer's function as one that can mold patterns of behaviorby creating new settings for freeer, mor adaptable life styles. [...] This publication, issued in conjunction with a major exhibition at The Museum o f Modern Art, is the first to deal comprehensively with these challenging developments. Over 150 objects of Italian design of the past ten years have been selceted for the show and all are reproduced in color or black-and-white, as are the dozen environments by well-known Italian designers speciallycommissioned for the occasion."

Pp [i ]-xxiii,(1),1-231,(1). 8vo, grey cloth, black lettering to spine. “This book is a case-study. In the laboratory of modern history, Carl Amery tests the hypothesis of collusion and corruption in the relations between the RomanCatholic Church and the government of post-Nazi Germany. The principals in the affair are scrutinized closely, their words are cited at length, their acts are weighed in the balance of Christian ethics, and in the end Church and Churchmen are found wanting. The initial assumption of the experiment is proved valid: the institutional Church cravenly subjected itself to the powers of this world.” (from the dj). Contents : Foreword by Professor J. M. Cameron. 1. Power and powerlessness: The paradox of German Catholicism. 2. German Catholicism and its milieu. 3. The milieu's system of values and virtue. 4.
