Triple column. Large square 8vo, blue cloth with white lettering to spine. "Incredible though it mayseem, the Volkswagen bus has been with us for half a century. Is it really possible that the world's best-loved transporter has been around, in one f orm or anotehr, for so long? Developed from an idea crudely sketched in a notebook, the VW van has evolved into an icon, unrivaled by any other similar vehicle. Indeed, in this day and age of mini-vans and Multi-Purpose Vehicles (MPVs), it's easy to forget that Volkswagen came up with precisely the same concept back in 1949. At that time the vehicles were sold as 'Kombis' or 'Microbuses,' but they were, without doubt, the first ever 'People Carriers' and grew to become a symbol of freedom the world over. [...] 'VW Bus -- The First 50 Years' celebrates a half-century love affair with this most versatile of vehicles, bringing together almost 500 photographs -- most never before published -- showing the VW Transporter at work, rest, and play."- from the dustjacket.

"The China Voyage is the extraordinary story of how six men and one woman made maritime history: sailing the Pacific on a bamboo raft where every wave washed right through the structure. Their purpose: to test the theory that Asian raft sailors reached America some 2000 years ago. Their experience provides us with one of the most remarkable sea adventures ever told. On a beach in Vietnam Tim Severin found fishermen still using small bamboo rafts of age-old design. Forming a team of builders and riggers he constructed a 60-foot ocean-going raft from 220 giant bamboos, lashing them together waith rattan. Named Hsu Fu, in honour of a Chinese mariner who was sent to explore the Pacific in the third century BC, the raft set out from Hong Kong on its epic voyage. Basttered by gales and nearly run down by merchant shipping in the Taiwan Strait, the historic craft was swept past the intended first landfall by a powerful current.Very good in dustjacket. 20.00

SEWALL, Ian William. The Folkloral Voice. Edmonton : Qual Institute Press, International Institute for Qualitative Methodology, (1998). First Edition.Pp (10),[1]-321,(1). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, illustrated white card cover s, blue spine. "It is the pleasure and purpose of this studied conversancy to entertain contraries, to listen for a primal and folkloral teaching voice in the midst of a post-typographic conversation. Eight narrators, that is, a teaching elder (now retired), four traditional storytellers, two teachers of international experience, and one child of effervescent joy, are engaged around the kitchen table of this inquiry. Their talk and their tales are situated into the word and paint environment of traditional folklore, into the reflections and philosophies of modern theorists and essayists, and into the barbed wire of the researcher's own life. These narrators and friends become the tricksterish adhesive of a crosscultural conversation. Their espousals reflect upon storytelling as both a metaphoric and pedagogic bridge, storytelling as a meaningful orality in a student soundscape, storytelling as the medicine of coyote laughter, and storytelling as a life-giving intergenerational conversation: four kinds of discourse. The Folkloral Voice, in the Wesakychakian sense, is an attempt to put a body into a name, to infuse a western pedagogy with an ancestral orality. We are the Ancestors. We are the fiction of the story and the fact of its telling. It is our own footprints we most discover on the undiscovered island of our days. Our ordinary and daily tellings are the celebrations of our kind. This study hopes to more than understand how it is that the folkloral informs the crosscultural classroom of a represented world. This study hopes to replace a certainamount of privately constructed silence with the medicine of a darn good s tory!" - from the back cover. Very good.

50333 SEWELL, Kenneth, and Jerome PREISLER All Hands Down : The True Story of the Soviet Attack on the USS Scorpion
Simon & Schuster, New York , 2008, ISBN:9780743297981 
SEWELL, Kenneth, and Jerome PREISLER. All Hands Down : The True Story of the Soviet Attack on the USS Scorpion. New York : Simon & Schuster, (2008). First Printing. Pp (10),1-277,(1),+ 16 pp plates. Index. 8vo, black cloth spine, blue paper covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. "Forty years ago, in May 1968, the submarine USS Scorpion sank in mysterious circumstances with a loss of ninety-nine lives. The tragedy occurred during the height of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union, and it followedby only weeks the sinking of a Soviet sub near Hawaii. Now in All Hands Do wn, drawing on hundreds of hours of interviews, many with exclusive sourcesin the naval and intelligence communities, as well as recently declassifie d United States and Soviet intelligence files, Kenneth Sewell and Jerome Preisler explain what really happened to Scorpion. In January 1968, a U.S. intelligence ship, USS Pueblo, was seized by North Korea. Among other items, the North Koreans confiscated a valuable cryptographic unit that was capable of deciphering the Navy's top-secret codes. Unknown to the Navy, a traitor named John Walker had begun supplying the Navy's codes to the KGB. Once the KGB acquired the crypto unit from the North Koreans, the Russians were able to read highly classified naval communications. In March, a Soviet sub,K-129, mysteriously sank near Hawaii, hundreds of miles from its normal st ation in the Pacific. Soviet naval leaders mistakenly believed that a U.S. submarine was to blame for the loss, and they planned revenge. A trap was set: several Soviet vessels were gathered in the Atlantic, acting suspiciously. It would be only a matter of time before a U.S. sub was sent to investigate. That sub was Scorpion. Using the top-secret codes and the decipheringmachine, the Soviets could intercept and decode communication between the Navy and Scorpion, the final element in carrying out the planned attack. All Hands Down shows how the Soviet plan was executed and explains why the truth of the attack has been officially denied for forty years. Sewell and Preisler debunk various official explanations for the tragedy and bring to life the personal stories of some of the men who were lost when Scorpion wentto the bottom. This true story, finally told after exhaustive research, is more exciting than any novel." - from the dj. Very good in unclipped dustj acket. 18.00

"In the dark hours of March 7, 1968, a lone submarine slowly prowled the surface in open waters of the North Pacific. The slender sub rolled easily in swells raised by a twenty-knot wind. Occasionally, the whitecaps racing ahead of wave crests broke over the low forward deck, sending foaming rivulets of seawater to hide the rust streaks weeping from the boat's aging welds. A coast watcher might have mistaken the submarine for some naval relic with an oddly long fin emerging from the depths tofight a sea battle of the Second World War. Such identification would have been only partly right. This sub, despite its angular U-boat appearance, c arried three atomic-age ballistic missiles snugly housed in tubes in its extended sail... Each carried a one-megaton thermonuclear warhead. The usual elation of the crew at finally being back in man's normal realm on the surface was suddenly cut short when they heard an order barked over the intercom. The order was for battle stations, missile launch. All compartments wereto report ready when sealed. The order was followed by: "This is not a dri ll." - from the back cover.

Square 8vo, illustrated white card covers. “The ICP Library of Photographers is published in collaboration with the International Fund for Concerned Photography Inc., under the general direction of its Executive Director, Cornell Capa. Each monograph in the series contains a generous and representative selection of work by a photographer who uses his camera as a tool of social conscience, and whose aesthetic vision is fused with passion, concern, and reverence for all living things. Each book also contains appreciations and essays on the photographer and his work, with many new and previously unpublished photographs and writings.” - from the back cover. “Chim (pronounced shim, an abbreviation of the surname "Szymin") was the pseudonym of David Seymour (1911-1956), a Polish photographer and photojournalist. Born David Szymin in Warsaw to Polish Jewish parents, he became interested in photography while studying in Paris. He began working as a freelance journalist in 1933. Children placed in a reformatory, the Albergo dei Poveri, by order of the Juvenile Court, Naples, Italy, 1948.Chim's coverage of the Spanish Civil War, Czechoslovakia and other European events established his reputation. He was particularly known for his poignant treatmentof people, especially children. In 1939 he documented the journey of Loyal ist Spanish refugees to Mexico and was in New York when World War II broke out. In 1940 he enlisted in the United States Army, serving in Europe as a photo interpreter during the war. He became a naturalized citizen of the United States in 1942, the same year that his parents were killed by the Nazis. After the war, he returned to Europe to document the plight of refugee children for the recently formed UNICEF (United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund). Sometime after D-Day, Chim met Life (magazine)'s Paris Bureau Head Will Lang Jr. and had lunch with him at a cafe' in the Bois de Boulogne in Paris, France, along with reporter Dida Comacho and photographer Yale Joel. In 1947, Chim co-founded the Magnum Photos photography cooperative, together with Robert Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson, whom he had befriended in 1930s Paris. Chim's reputation for his compelling photos of warorphans was complemented by his later work in photographing Hollywood cele brities such as Sophia Loren, Kirk Douglas, Ingrid Bergman and Joan Collins. After Capa's death in 1954, Chim became president of Magnum Photos. He held the post until November 10, 1956, when he was killed (together with French photographer Jean Roy) by Egyptian machine-gun fire, while covering the armistice of the 1956 Suez War.” - wikipedia.

Pp (10),[xi]-xx,(4),3-482. 8vo, red card covers, with black spine. "Economic theory describes a system of activities, each necessary to, and each dependent on, the system as a whole. It states also that the principles that determine how large each activity is in relation to the others. These are the consequences of a single assumption: that people pursue their interests by applying reason to their circumstances. Economic theoreticians, hwever, have eschewed an essential question: How far, and how, can people know what their circumstances are? It is Shackle's view that human conduct is chosen with a view to its consequences. But theseare in the future, which cannot be directly known. Expectation will confin e itself to what is deemed possible, but this leaves it free to entertain widely diverse and rival hypotheses. How can such skeins of mutually conflicting ideas serve the formation of individual or institutional policy? This is the chief question that Epistemics and Economics examines." - rear cover. Book I.

(SHACKLETON, Ernest). RIFFENBURGH, Beau. Shackleton's Forgotten Expedition : The Voyage of the Nimrod. (New York) : Bloomsbury, (2004). Book Club Edition.Pp (6), [vii]-xxiv,[1]-358,(2)+ 16-page central section of b&w photos. Maps in the text. 8vo, dark grey paper-covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. Beau Riffenburgh, (b. 1955, California). “Yet, remarkably little has been recorded about what most polar historians agree were actually Shackleton's most significant geographical accomplishments, greatest deeds and most momentous decisions. These were all attained on the first expedition that he led, the grandly named British Antarctic Expedition of 1907-1909. One should not be confused by Shackleton's title for the expedition, however. It was very much a private affair – under-funded, not backed by major geographical and scientific organisations, and sailing on a tiny former whaler called Nimrod. Never the less, its members not only achieved remarkable scientific results, but became the first to climb Mount Erebus, the first to attainthe South Magnetic Pole, and the pioneers of the original route to the cen tre of the Antarctic continent, where a high plateau is home to the South Pole.” - from the Preface. "On New Year's Day 1908, Ernest Shackleton, a little-known explorer determined to find fame and fortune by becoming the first man to reach the South Pole, took his tiny, overladen ship, Nimrod, southto the mysterious regions of the Antarctic. In the coming year, Shackleton would record the greatest achievements of his career and engage in his mos t daring adventures, returning home a hero. Lacking funds and plagued by hunger, cruel weather, and unpredictable terrain, Shackleton and his party accomplished some of the most remarkable feats in the history of exploration.Not only were they the first to climb the active volcano of Mount Erebus, but they trudged hundreds of miles across uncharted wastelands to be the first ever to plant the Union Jack at the South Pole. Shackleton's Forgotten Expedition is the definitive account of the British Antarctic Expedition. Using extensive research and firsthand accounts - some previously unpublished - Beau Riffenburgh has written a vivid and gripping adventure that provides fascinating insight into the age of British exploration and empire." - from the dj.

Kevin R. Shackleton was living in Newmarket, Ontario at the time of publication.

"One of only fifty infantry battalions to see action with the Canadian Expeditionary Force during World War I, the 58th nevertheless had no official history. Second to None tells the story of this important, yet forgotten, battalion. The soldiers who formed the 58th exemplified the ideal citizen soldiers and later evolved into the tough, battle-savvy veterans who destroyed the cream of the German Imperial Army and won battle honours. The author uses the men's letters and diaries and family oral histories to amplify the terse account of the 58th's war diary, bringing to life once more the men who paid the price for freedom." - from rear.

"Jack Shadbolt is a major Canadian art ist whose paintings have appeared in many international exhibitions, as well as in major retrospectives at the National Gallery, the Vancouver Art Gallery and the University of British Columbia Museum of Anthropology. In thisfirst full study of the renowned painter, author Scott Watson explores Sha dbolt's personal struggles to be an artist and to resolve conflicting drives -- between spontaneity and restraint, order and chaos -- in the context of shifting trends in art as well as social change. Shadbolt also struggled to be understood in a culture that, when he began, was not ready for modernart. From Shadbolt's early love of nature and awakening artistic sensibili ties to his coming of age while studying in New York, London and Paris, Watson explores the evolution of an artist who has an international perspective but who is alsoa unique regional painter with a profound sense of place."- from the dustjacket.

Ben Shahn, Phoootographer is the the first book devoted exclusively to Shahn's photographs. It contains a careful selection of some of Shahn's finest efforts in the medium slong with an introductory essay that outlines the development of Shahn's interest in photography and discusses his photographicoutput by itself and in relation to his paintings. All or me pnotographs s elected for this volume were taken during the 1930s for Rod Stryker's greatFarm Security Administration project, aimed at establishing a visual recor d of life and culture in rural America. Whether of people, places, or things, of poor sharecroppers or middle-class farmers and townfolk, they represent Shahn's striving to portray the only three subjects he once said he had:"aloneness; the impossibility to communicate with each other, which accoun ts for the aioneness; and thirdly, the sort of indestructible spirit of manto keep on going beyond the time when he thinks it would be impossible to arrive anywhere."

They were unsuspecting Japanese fishermen thousands of miles from home aboard their small ship, the Lucky Dragon. On March 1, 1954, a cloud of strange whitish-gray flakes drifted down on their craft -- and from that time on their lives were never the same. For one of them, Aikichi Kuboyama, the ship's beloved radio operator, the event was the beginning of a drama that became known around the world, and that ended almost seven months later in his death. The flakes were radioactive fallout from an American hydrogen bomb test at Bikini Atoll, about 85 miles away from the Lucky Dragon.They fell on the ship and the men and sank into crevices, causing the ship to be radioactive long after the decks had been washed. After their return to Japan, all 23 crew members were hospitalized with radiation poisoning." - from the dustjacket.
