Columbia University Press, New York, 1992, ISBN:0231075367 
ELLENZWEIG, Allen. The Homoerotic Photograph : Male Images From Durieu / Delacroix to Mapplethorpe. New York : Columbia University Press, (1992). First Printing. Pp [i]-xxii,(2),1-230,(2). Illustrated in black-and-white. Double Column. 4to, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. A volume on the Between Men – Between Women: Lesbian and Gay Studies series. "In The Homoerotic Photograph, Allen Ellenzweig reminds us that photography has persistentlycaptured the male gaze upon other men. Gathered here are 127 beautiful and provocative duotone photographs that reflect the wide-ranging history of m ale homoeroticism as revealed by the camera - amply suggesting spiritual, physical, and intellectual exchange between men. To accompany these images, Ellenzweig offers a detailed account of the multiple and complex meanings of the homoerotic, from the 1850s to today. Each artist is placed in historical context, with chapters devoted to specific photographers and eras, beginning with the male nude studies created by nineteenth-century French photographer Eugene Durieu under the direction of painter Eugene Delacroix. Later in the century photographers such as Thomas Eakins, Frank Sutcliffe, and F. Holland Day portrayed classical ideals through images of male beauty andbonding, while the work of early twentieth-century photographers - Brassai , for example - showed the influences of the homosexual subculture and of Freud on photography. Modernists and Surrealists, represented by photographers George Platt Lynes and Herbert List, captured the artistic spirit of thelate twenties and thirties. Later, the kinship created by war and the conf licting standards imposed by the post-World War II era were reflected in Minor White's spiritual artistry. Out of the rebellious sixties came the contemporary camera work of Arthur Tress, Duane Michals, and Robert Mapplethorpe, as well as the ongoing photographic studies of such artists as George Dureau and Chantal Regnault. Their engaging works range from exposes of men experiencing the whole gamut of human emotions -love, fear, sexual arousal, loneliness, hope - to portraits of public and private human relations, to detached explorations of erotic fantasies and primal passions. Against the backdrop of the disputes surrounding Robert Mapplethorpe's controversial retrospective in 1989 and 1990, Allen Ellenzweig demonstrates that the homoerotic in photography is hardly a contemporary invention. Current photographers across the stylistic spectrum share a common heritage of homoeroticism inphotography, which serves to inspire spiritual, physical, and intellectual ideals." - from the dj.

Index. 8vo, red cloth, white lettering to spine. Myron Smith, The Soviet Navy, 1941-1978 : A Guide toSources in English 399. A review of U.S. naval capabilities in the Cold Wa r period, contrasted with an appreciation of the growth of the Soviet fleet, culminating in a plea not to cut naval defence spending. "Most Americans are aware of the Soviet Union's enormous armies and of its ICBMs zeroed in on U.S. cities, strategic airbases, and Minuteman missile sites, but tftey are otten unaware of a greater danger: the Russians' determined drive to become masters of the sea on which America's very life depends. Whether or not we like it, Russian submarine surface fleets cruise the Atlantic, the Caribbean, the Pacific, and the Indian Ocean. In the Mediterranean, where the U.S. 6tn Fleet once reigned supreme, a powerful Russian fleet sails, ready to counter any U.S. move. While the Soviet Union has long had the world's largest submarine fleet, the United States has felt secure in its lead in nuclear powered and armed submarines. Now, even in this latter category Russia is on the verge of surpassing U.S. capabilities. Twenty-five years ago the United States boasted the largest navy and merchant marine fleet. Today, the Russians have taken the lead in both areas. In addition, Moscow holds avital edge in oceanographic and deep-sea fisting fleets, which serve every where as adjuncts of her navy for operations and for intelligence. Such is the background for The Soviet Sea Challenge. In early chapters Admiral Eller traces tne historic influence of the sea on the destinies of America and Russia through World War II and focuses sharply on the role of the Navy in the desperate Battle of the Atlantic and the bitter Pacific struggle, from Pearl Harbor to the Coral Sea, Midway, Guadalcanal, Leyte, and Okinawa. He then covers the key events of the past quarter century, including the impact of sea power in Korea, where the U.S. Navy helped to save the toehold at Pusan and to execute General MacArthur's daring amphibious coup at Inchon, and Vietnam, where the U.S. Navy has demonstrated its versatility in assault, gunfire support, air interdiction, and riverine warfare. Additional chapters cover technological innovations in naval aircraft, missiles, submarines, and high-speed ampnibious attack ships—assault helicopter carriers, for example. What emerges is a serious message. Technological advances can haveno real value, Admiral Eller contends, if the United States continues its current policy of naval cutbacks in face of the phenomenal growth of Sovietsea power, which has aiready brought Russia large gains, from Cuba to Afri ca and the Middle East. The threat to the United States, if she does not regain her naval supremacy, as well as to all non-Communist nations, is far more serious than any that has previously confronted the nation."

16434 ELLERMAN, J.R. and T.C.S. MORRISON-SCOTT. Checklist of Palaearctic and Indian Mammals 1758 to 1946. Second Edition.
Trustees of the British Museum (Natural History, London, 1966, 1966 
ELLERMAN, J.R. and T.C.S. MORRISON-SCOTT. Checklist of Palaearctic and Indian Mammals 1758 to 1946. Second Edition. London : Trustees of the British Museum (Natural History), July 1966. Pp (6),1-810,+ folding map frontispiece. Index. Thick 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering on maroon panel to spine.

"It is a commonplace that novelty exercises such an attraction that it frequently diverts to itself a measure of attention out of all proportion to the true value of the subject or object. In science the field of every new discovery forthwith becomes the focal point round which attention centres, to the detriment of other fields more important but less glamorous. The tide of geographical exploration in the nineteenth century with its accompanying flood of zoological novelties exercised precisely this effect with the result that, whereas the vertebrate faunas of the Ethiopian, Oriental, Nearctic, and even the Australian and Neotropical regions, have been more or less comprehensively listed in recent years, there have been few comparable works relating to the Palaearctic region where taxonomic zoology was born and cradled. The present work, whose geographical limits have been selected to link up with Chasen's (1940) list of Malayan mammals and Allen's (1939) similar list for the Ethiopian region, is an attempt to remedy this lack of balance in the field of systematic mammalogy.

The authors have succeeded in producing a list which is not merely one of the working tools that every systematist must make for his own use. It is, in fact, a critical revision, shorn of all detailed argument, based on the unrivalled collections of the Museum." - the Preface.

"The area covered by this work is the Palaearctic region and the Indian' and Indo-Chinese subdivisions of the Oriental region. Zoologists will be well aware of the difficulty in delimiting these zoogeographical areas. However, for the purposes of a list such as this, some arbitrary limit must be set. In Africa we have drawn the boundary along the parallel of 20° N. which, owing to the barrier of the Sahara, does correspond reasonably well with the facts. The boundary in Malaya has, however, been drawn in a purely arbitrary manner along the parallel of 10° N. This line has been chosen because it is the northern limit of the area covered by Chasen, 1940, Handlist of Malaysian Mammals.

The limits in point of time are from 1758 to 1946. That is to say, we have endeavoured to include all forms of recent mammals named from the tenth edition of Linnaeus up till the end of 1946, except that domestic animals, and wild mammals which have become extinct, have as a rule been omitted.

No one man can, of course, be a connoisseur of more than a small part of the class Mammalia. Nevertheless, in writing this work we have thought it worth while attempting a revision rather than making a mere nominal compilation. We have therefore re-examined all relevant monographs and revisions, in so far as they are known to us, together with the extensive study collections of the British Museum, and this checklist represents the results. Whether readers agree with our views or not, we hope that the presentation of such a survey within the covers of one book will prove useful.

There has been a considerable reduction in the number of named forms regarded as valid, though we have only proceeded with this "lumping" to the extent that the evidence before us justified it; there is probably much more to be done, and sub-species have been arranged in order of priority for the convenience of subsequent revisers.

'The term 'India' has been used throughout in its zoogeographical sense to include the modern India and Pakistan.

We have recognized 809 species of rmanmials in the Palaearctic and Indian regions as defined above." pp.1-2. With bibliography and a lengthy index.

"The Northwest Passage is so far north that only a p olar projection map presents an accurate picture of its expanse. It has been both an integral part of Canada's national identity and a source of contention between the United States and Canada. Canadian claims that the Passage is internal Canadian waters have been challenged by United States insistence that it is an international strait. Continental partners and allies, the two countries have charted a unique course in continental cooperation, while concurrently working to resolve contentious bilateral issues. This study places the Northwest Passage in the context of U.S. - Canadian relations and argues that its resolution lies in the spirit and history of bilateral cooperation found in the second half of the twentieth century." - from rearboard.
