Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 2010, ISBN:9780521119542 
BURNS, Bryan E. Mycenaean Greece, Mediterranean Commerce, and the Formationof Identity. Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, (2010). First Printin g. Pp. (6),vii-xii,1-246,(6). Illustrated in black and white. 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "The impact of long-distance exhange on the developing cultures of Bronze Age Greece has been a suibject of debate since Schliemann's discovery of the Shaft Graves at Mycenae. In 'Mycenaean Greece, Mediterranean Commerce, and the Formation of Identity', Bryan E. Burns offers a new understanding of the effects of Mediterranean trade on Mycenaen Greece by considering the possibilities represented by the traded objects themselves in their Mycenaean contexts. A range of imported artifacts were distinguished by their precious material, uncommon style, and foreign writing, signalling their status as tangible evidence of connections beyond the Aegean. The consuption of these exotic symbols spread beyond the highest levels of society and functioned as symbols of external power sources. Burns argues that the consumption of exotic items thus enabled the formation of alternate identities and the resistance of palatial power." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1. Aegean Agency in Mediterranean Exchange; 2. Becoming Mycenaean: Definitions of Civilization, Style, and Art; 3. Imports in theEarly Mycenaean Period; 4. Crafting Power Through Import Consumption; 5.

Oxford University Presss, Oxford, 2010, ISBN:9780195365504 
CLINE, Eric H., (ed.). The Oxford Handbook of the Bronze Age Aegean (ca. 3000 - 1000 BC). Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2010. Second Printing. Pp (6),[vii]-xxxiii,(5),[3]-930,(10). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. ADDITIONAL SHIPPING CHARGES WILL BE REQUIREDFOR ORDERS OUTSIDE CANADA DUE TO ITS WEIGHT. Very good in dustjacket. 140. 00 "The Greek Bronze Age, roughly 3000 to 1000 BC, witnessed the flourishing of the Minoan and Mycenean civilizations, the earliest expansion of tradein the Aegean and wider Mediterranean Sea, the development of artistic tec hniques in a variety of media, and the evolution of early Greek religious practices and mythology. The period also witnessed a violent conflict in Asia Minor between warring peoples in the region, a conflict commonly believedto be the historical basis for Homer's Trojan War. The Oxford Handbook of the Bronze Age Aegean provides a detailed survey of these fascinating aspects of the period, and many others, in sixty-six newly commissioned articles. Divided into four parts, the handbook begins with Background and Definitions, which contains articles establishing the discipline in its historical,geographical, and chronological settings and in its relation to other disc iplines. The second section, Chronology and Geography, contains articles examining the Bronze Age Aegean by chronological period (Early Bronze Age, Middle Bronze Age, Late Bronze Age). Each of the periods are further subdivided geographically, so that individual articles are concerned with Mainland Greece during the Early Bronze Age, Crete during the Early Bronze Age, the Cycladic Islands during the Early Bronze Age, and the same for the Middle Bronze Age, followed by the Late Bronze Age. The third section, Thematic andSpecific Topics, includes articles examining thematic topics that cannot b e done justice in a strictly chronological/geographical treatment, including religion, state and society, trade, warfare, pottery, writing, and burialcustoms, as well as specific events, such as the eruption of Santorini and the Trojan War. The fourth section, Specific Sites and Areas, contains art icles examining the most important regions and sites in the Bronze Age Aegean, including Mycenae, Tiryns, Pylos, Knossos, Kommos, Rhodes, the northernAegean, and the Uluburun shipwreck, as well as adjacent areas such as the Levant, Egypt, and the western Mediterranean. Containing new work by an international team of experts, The Oxford Handbook of the Bronze Age Aegean represents the most comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date single-volume survey of the field. It will be indispensable for scholars and advanced students alike." (from the dj). Contents : Part I: Background and Definitions. 1. History of Research, James D. Muhly. 2.

80 COLLENETTE, Eric J. Gemini Plot. First Edition in dustjacket.
William Kimber, London, 1985, ISBN:0718305485 
COLLENETTE, Eric J. The Gemini Plot : A Sea Novel of World War II. London :William Kimber, (1985). First Edition. Pp (6),[7]-189,(3). 8vo, blue cloth , gilt lettering to spine. A naval thriller concerning the operations of a covert British submarine in Mediterranean waters. "Submarine coxswain Ben Grant has a medal for his exploits in Norwegian waters earlier in the war, but this does not help him face operations in a far different theatre - the Mediterranean - or endear him to his colleagues. Strained and nerve-racked,he joins the submarine Avon en route to Torbruk in the summer of 1942. But at Malta events come to a head and he is asked to volunteer for Special Su bmarine Operations, a secret subversive unit. The target is occupied Greece, the mission dangerous - and the only flaw in the plan is his former skipper, Half-Shackle. In this new Ben Grant saga, Eric Collenette gives us another story from the war at sea and in his taut, straightforward prose, he vividly recreates those tense days of submarine warfare." - from the jacket. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 40.00
