AVERKIEVA, Julia and Mark A. SHERMAN. Kwakiutl String Figures. Seattle and London : University of Washington Press / New York : American Museum of Natural History, (1992). First Edition. Pp (5),[vi]-xxxi,(3),3-199,(1). Partlydouble column. Square 8vo, red cloth, silver lettering to spine. No 71 in Anthropological Papers of the American Museum of Natural History series. With Foreword by Bill Holm. "Of the games people play, string figures afford nearly universal amusement, appearing in more cultures than any other. But although over 2,000 individual patterns have been recorded world-wide since1888, when anthropologist Franz Boas first described a pair of Eskimo "cat 's cradles," very few studies have explored North American Indian string figures. This intriguing volume publishes for the first time 102 string figures and 10 string tricks collected among the Kwakiutl Indians by Julia Averkieva, a young visiting Soviet scholar who accompanied Boas on his 1930 expedition to Vancouver Island. When she returned to Leningrad, Averkieva left her unpublished monograph with Boas, whose heirs eventually sent it to the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Averkieva's study represents the most comprehensive Native American string collection ever assembled from a single tribe. In addition to characterizing the social conditions that prompted string figure making among the Kwakiutl during the time of her field study, Averkieva noted step-by-step instructions for each figure and transcribed traditional accompanying chants. In editing and expanding Averkieva's manuscript, Mark Sherman addresses string figure enthusiasts as well as cultural anthropologists. Sherman includes in his introduction a complete description of basic openings and string figure moves. For each Kwakiutl figure he has prepared clear illustrations based on Averkieva's original photographs and pencil sketches. In addition he has tested each figure for workability, clarifying instructions where necessary and recasting them in Rivers and Haddon's standard terminology" from the dj Very good in dustjacket. 20.00

2156 AYLING, Ronald and Michael J. DURKAN. O'CASEY, Sean Sean O'Casey : A Bibliography.
Macmillan, London, 1978, ISBN:0333113489. 
AYLING, Ronald and Michael J. DURKAN. Sean O'Casey : A Bibliography. (London : The Macmillan Press, Ltd, 1978). First Edition. Pp (8),[ix]-xxiv,411,(1) + frontispiece + 4 leaves of illustrations. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Following the familiar format of the excellent Soho Series ofauthor bibliographies, this book is a detailed and comprehensive checklist of all conceivable aspects of Sean O'Casey's published and unpublished wri tings, making it possible for the first time to survey and assess the wholeliterary range of his work. It lists his books and plays (with copious des criptive notes, drawing upon many unpublished manuscripts and letters, giving the full history of each major work), essays, short stories and poems, his contributions to books by other writers, his more than six hundred and fifty contributions to periodicals (including book reviews and letters), andhis recordings, radio and television broadcasts and ephemera. There is a s ection devoted to the many published translations of his work, a detailed listing of manuscripts and typescripts in the principal collections of his papers, and, finally, a section devoted to stage premières and notable stagerevivals of his plays and details of film versions of them. The descriptiv e commentary will be useful to the collector, as a detailed listing not only of first editions but of subsequent ones (some of them considerably revised but not, in fact, recognised as new editions in some cases even in the printed text). For the scholar, it will be an indispensable guide to the many revisions and rewritings of plays and prose writings: O'Casey, like Yeats, was an inveterate reviser throughout his career, but none of the existingliterary studies has yet given adequate attention to this facet of his wor k. Moreover, scholars and students will also be introduced to many occasional publications (often in obscure journals) not collected by O'Casey nor recorded in any published studies of his work. The compilers have been given generous access to the playwright's private papers and to the files of the publisher who printed all his dramatic writings throughout the major portion of his writing life. The result of more than twelve years' research work,the bibliography will be of great assistance not only to O'Casey scholars but also to the student interested in modern drama and/or Anglo-Irish literature who wants more information than can be at present obtained in any reference work, about a prolific author now properly regarded as one of the major dramatists of the twentieth century." – from the dj.

2157 AYLMER, Lady Narrative of the Passage of the Pique across the Atlantic
J. Hatchard and Son, London , 1837, 
AYLMER, Lady. Narrative of the Passage of the Pique across the Atlantic. London : J. Hatchard and Son, 187, Piccadilly, 1837. First Edition. Pp (2),[3]-82,(2). Sm 8vo, original maroon boards, gilt lettering to front board, repaired maroon spine, all edges gilt. Not in O'Dea. "After receiving every demonstration of kind regret at our departure from Canada, which kind heartscould bestow, we embai'ked on the 17th of September, 1835, on board the Pi que frigate, commanded by the Hon. Captain Kous, and sailed for England, from Quebec, which for five years had been our home. There is a feeling in leaving those whom you look on, probably, for the last time, which admits of more than seriousness, and which, not all the gratifying proofs of respect (however the heart may answer to them) can lessen. The only thanks I could give were tears : and they were with difficulty restrained and concealed. Of Lord Aylmer I say nothing ; with a conscience free from offence, he endedhis government of Canada; and left, of course, some friends behind, who wi ll not forget him. Wind and weather befriended us on our passage down the beautiful St. Lawrence, and across its often-to-be-dreaded gulf. It was decided about three o'clock on the fourth day of our voyage, (the 21st,) that we should pass through the Straits of Belleisle : Captain Rous had very goodreasons for this decision, and I only mention my feelings on seeing a clou d coming after us, (as I may term it,) because they were very remarkable atthe time: an officer, who was then walking on the deck, said, "Yes, that c loud is one which will envelope us in a thick fog very soon." We went belowto dine, and not long after, the fog enclosed us as in a veil ; it brought with it a fearful destiny — for, owing to the darkness which it spread aro und, was our striking on the rocks that night, off the coast of Labrador. Captain Rous had on every previous evening played whist, with the other gentlemen of our party, but, on this eventful evening, he had remained on deck,and till ten o'clock I had taken his place at the card-table. I had been s eriously unwell before our leaving Canada, and as the usual noises on boardthe best-regulated ship are always sufficient to disturb an indifferent sl eeper, I had not enjoyed one good night's rest since embarking ; and excusing myself from remaining longer up, was determined to take advantage of some arrangements which had been kindly made to ensure me a calm and quiet night, and was just composing myself to sleep, when the tremendous crash occasioned by the ship striking forcibly against the rocks instantly roused me :as the ship was going her smooth and even course, eight knots an hour, wit h scarcely any motion, the shock was the more alarming." - pp.12-14. Boardslightly edge-sunned, inking to front board, two names inked to flyleaf, so me foxing to initial leaves (with only a couple of small spots throughout),else very good. A tidy copy.

For that reason the Industrial Research Council, on being appointed in 1934, undertook a programme of research designed to find alternative uses for seaweeds in a study oftheir chemical and botanical characteristics. The programme was continued by this Institute which was established by the Government in 1946 to replace the Industrial Research Council. The work which is described in this report was executed in the years 1947 to 1949, but for various reasons publication of the results has been delayed.” - from the Foreword by Donal T. Flood.

We see the fascinating development of this great art as the men of the key, the'brass-pounders', have practised it. The marvelous utility of wireless is brought home ot us by the stories of mighty events in which it has played amajor part. The collision between the Republic and the Florida; the sinkin g of the huge Titanic; the rapid foundering of the Empress of Ireland; the heroic rescue of the crew of the storm-swept Antinoë by the President Roosevelt; the dreadful capsizing of the Vestris; the fatal burst of flame on board the Morro Castle on the hour before making port; these and many more sea disasters are part of the story of SOS." - from the dust jacket.

Babir (b. October 21, 1948, Beiru t, Lebanon). "On the basis of new evidence from the Ottoman archives in Istanbul, Karl Barbir challenges the current interpretation of Ottoman rule inDamascus during the eighteenth century. He argues that the prevailing them es of decline and stagnation - usually applied to the entire century - in fact apply only to the latter half of the century. This discovery, he contends, affords a more balanced and realistic view of the Near East's Ottoman past than previous studies have suggested.
