"In the autumn of 1968, Donald Crowhurst set out from England in an improbable-looking plywood trimaran to participate in the first singlehanded nonstop round-the-world sailboat race. Although his previous sailing experience was limited, his boat unready, and the electronic gadgetry of his own designunfinished and untested, Crowhurst had managed to persuade first an afflue nt backer, then the contest judges, and, finally, England's media to regardhim as a serious contender. Sailing south through the Atlantic, he rewarde d their belief in him with reports of record-breaking sailing performances.In the South Atlantic he announced that low battery power would require hi m to maintain radio silence through the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Eleven weeks later he broke his silence to tell the world he had rounded Cape Horn and was sailing north for England, the elapsed-time leader of the race. Then tragedy struck. Eigh months after his departure, Crowhurst's Teignmouth Electron was discovered adrift in an eerie mid-Atlantic calm, intact but without her skipper." - from the dustjacket.

TOMPSON, Richard. The Charity Commission and the Age of Reform. London and Henley : Routledge & Kegan Paul / Toronto and Buffalo : University of Toronto Press, (91979). First Edition. Pp (6),vii-viii.1-279,(1). Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. In the Studies in Social History Series. "The first major Royal Commission ot Inquiry in the area of social policysat from 1818 to 1837 and inquired into the chaotic organization of charit ies. But because it deviated from expected patterns for a reform commissionin that it neither followed on from a major movement for reform, nor produ ced a bureaucratic offspnng, it has previously attracted little critical attention. This paradox is examined through an analysis of common assumptionsabout reform. The setting for the Commission is outlined in a discussion o f inquiries in general, and the state of charities in particular. The experience of the Commission is then reconstructeced in a thorough analysis, concluding with a review of the cost and the benetit of the Commission. With its examination of almost 29,000 charities completed, the Commission stopped, concluded its business in 1837 and completed the publication of its report in 1843. Ten vears later a permanent Board of Charity Commissioners was established. To those who looked to the permanent Board is the culmination of reform, the Commission had failed. Yet a re-examination of that judgementby the author in the context of the many inquiries made during the first h alf of the nineteenth century suggests just the opposite, that the Commission report and the subsequent Board were substantial successes. From these conclusions, suggested criteria are set out for broadening our understandingof the Age of Reform through the study of commissions of inquiry." (from t he dj).

TONE, John Lawrence. War and Genocide in Cuba, 1895-1898. (Chapel Hill : The University of North Carolina Press, 2006). First Printing. Pp (10),[xi]-xiii,(1),[1]-338. Illustrated. Maps. Index. black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "From 1895 to 1898, Cuban insurgents fought to free their homeland from Spanish rule. Though often overshadowed by the "Splendid Little War" of the Americans in 1898, the longer Spanish-Cuban conflict, according to JohnTone, was in fact more remarkable, foreshadowing the wars of decolonizatio n in the twentieth century. Employing newly released evidence, including hospital records, intercepted Cuban letters, battle diaries from both sides, and Spanish administrative records, Tone offers new answers to old questions concerning the war. He shows that the Cuban insurgency was in nearly terminal condition by 1897 and needed outside help to succeed. Help came not only in the form of American intervention, however. Political events in Spainundermined Spanish strength and helpde to revive the insurrection, finally topping the regime after the Americans invaded. Tone also explores the Spa nish policy of "reconcentration," which forcible relocated thousands of Cubans to concentration camps and resulted in thousands of deaths. The Spanish-Cuban-American war proved pivotal in the histories of all three countries involved. Tone's fresh analysis will provoke new discussions and debates among historians and human rights scholars as they reexamine the war in whichthe concentration camp was invented, Cuba was born, Spain lost its empire, and America gained an overseas empire."

Don Tooker fully appreciates just how dangerous a profession flying is and admits that it is filled with unpredictable factors that affect all pilots, regardless of their skills. A pilot since 1947, he survived nearly 150 combat missions over Korea and countless other adventures.

TOPP, Erich. The Odyssey of a U-Boat Commander : Recollections of Erich Topp. Translated by Eric C. Rust. Westport, CT: Praeger, (1992). First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-x,[1]-242,(2), + 10 p. of plates. Illustrated. 8vo, black cloth with silver lettering to spine. A translation of Fackeln über dem Atlantik. "Admiral Topp's memoirs reflect the faith, hopes, errors, and transformations in a man's life, indeed those of a whole generation whose understanding of history and ideology were held captive by the myth of power. The terrible annihilation in World War II and, even more so, the unimaginable destructive potential of nuclear weapons, have resulted in a change in the use of power. The author's diaries and journals, along with their contemporary interpretation, illustrate the political dimension of this change. Topp wrote this book to illuminate a segment of twentieth-century history, which'can only be portrayed truthfully by those who themselves have lived and s uffered through it'. Topp also describes freely the era of the Third Reich.Even today, after long years of occupying posiutions of leadership, the au thor feels the burden of historical responsibility. In this sense his book is a statement about the ambivalence of human existence. It provides answers to the question of why a whole generation of Germans followed the mesmerizing siren song of a totalitarian regime, an experience that still looms like a shadow over the living." - from the dj.

University of Texas, Austin, 1972, 
TOPSELL, Edward. The Fowles of Heauen or History of Birdes. Edited by Thomas P. Harrison and F. David Hoeniger. Austin : The University of Texas Press, (1972). Pp (6),vii-xxxvi,[1]-332. Illustrated in colour. 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering and black panel to spine. "Edward Topsell (1572-1625), a London parson, had compiled two large volumes on quadrupeds and on serpents,both issued by William Jaggard, printer of Shakespeare's First Folio. A fe w years later he had` only well begun The Fowles of Heauen when he decided to present these "first fruicts" to the great Lord Ellesmere with formal Dedication and Prolegomena -248 leaves with 124 colored drawings, yet still comprising only the birds whose names commenced with A, B, and C. This fragment, never printed until now, belongs to the huge Ellesmere collection of the Henry Huntington Library in California; with discriminating omissions the present first edition realizes at last the hopes of the author. As both churchman and naturalist, Edward Topsell joins the British tradition shared by such distinguished men as William Tuener before, and Gilbert White after, him. The Fowles is a compendium of infoormation, ancient and modern, factual` and fanciful, about each bird. The religious tone is pervasive, yet with apparent incongruity one finds, for example, description of the structural adaptation of birds to their habits and habitats, a theme derived from Topsell's basic authority, the great Italian naturalist, Ulysse Aldrovandi, whose dissections had supported this significant fact. In short, Topsell's history embraces the whole field of bird lore which was soon to yield to true scientific study. Shakespeare and his fellows clung to tradition; Topsell's treatise, incomplete and unpublished, is a storehouse of old and new." (from the dj). Contents : Preface; Introduction.

"Farb has always hated Fnlays, and this Friday does nothing to change his mind. Waiting in his law office are the "Sinister Sisters", his lucrative but least tavounte clients, with a proposed real-estate sale that w.ill propel Farb intothe most complex, sensitive, and potentially unethical deal oi his career. As the bidding war develops, Farb learns that both the would-be buyers are also clients; Patrick Shahani, a shrewd, dictatorial businessman who tests his children's loyalty bv repeatedly disinheriting them, and Rose Shahani, his frustrated daughter who is resolved to crush her manipulative father. As if that isn't enough, Farh also has to contend with corrupt real-estate agents, a double dealing wheeler-dealer, and a handful of legal sharks. "But more than business goes wrong for Farb on this Friday of all Fridays. Hisex-wiife is settling dlown with a new man and demands her property settlem ent; his father, in failing health at a nursing home, announces his intention to remarrv and help Farb out with his law practice; and to top it all, Farb is involved in a robbery in which a shop owner is critically wounded. "In St. Farb's Day Morley Torgov paints a wonderfully humorous picture of a world he knows a great deal about - the power and greed of Bay Street. In so doing, he gives us a secular saint for our times: Farb, an ordinary, honest man trying to cope with the worst of all possible Fridays."- from the dj.

Pp (6),[1]-186. 8vo, black cloth, red lettering to spine. “In The Outside Chance of Maximi lian Glick, Morley Torgov returns in a contemporary vein to the setting of his bestselling A Good Place to Come From, that small, northern Ontario city where the social climate falls into the same category as the seasonal climate — an ongoing act of God best endured with a maximum of resignation anda minimum of talk. Onto this city of some 50,000 descends one day a Lubavi tcher rabbi, a member of an extremely Orthodox group who clothe themselves in the fashion of their Eastern European forefathers and wear their beards long and sideburns untrimmed. The Lubavitcher, through a clerical error, has just been appointed rabbi of the small Jewish community. Naturally, he captures the attention of the entire city as a seller of elixirs might have done in horse-and-buggy times. And to Maximilian Glick, about to become bar mitzvah, the rabbi personifies all the strictures of small-town provincialism he is longing to escape from. However, things aren't quite what they seem — for the young Lubavitcher would rather shed his rabbinical garb to become a stand-up comedian....” - from the dj.

55695 TOUGIAS, Michael J. Fatal Forecast : An Incredible True Tale of Disaster and Survival at Sea. 1st US in dj

TOUGIAS, Michael J. Fatal Forecast : An Incredible True Tale of Disaster and Survival at Sea. New York : Scribner, (2007). First Printing. Pp [i]-xiii,(1),[1]-222,(4),+ 8 pp photos. 8vo, blue cloth spine, gilt lettering to spine, grey paper covered boards. "A true story of catastrophe and survival at sea, Fatal Forecast is a spellbinding moment-by-moment account of seventy-two hours in the lives of eight young fishermen, some of whom would neverset foot on dry land again. On the morning of November 21, 1980, two small Massachusetts lobster boats set out for Georges Bank, a bountiful but peri lous fishing ground 130 miles off the coast of Cape Cod. The National Weather Service had forecast typical fall weather, and the young, rugged crewmenaboard the Sea Fever and the Fair Wind had made dozens of similar trips th at season. They had no reason to expect that this trip would be any different. But the only weather buoy on Georges Bank was malfunctioning, and the National Weather Service had failed to share this fact with the fishermen who depended on its forecasts. As the two small boats headed out to sea, a colossal storm was brewing to the southeast, a furious maelstrom the NationalWeather Service did not accurately locate until the boats were already cau ght in the storm's grip, trapped in the treacherous waters of Georges Bank.Battered by sixty-foot waves and hurricane-force winds, the crews of the F air Wind and the Sea Fever (captained by Peter Brown, whose father owned the Andrea Gail of Perfect Storm fame) struggled heroically to keep their vessels afloat. But the storm soon severely crippled one boat and overturned the other, trapping its crew inside. Meticulously researched and vividly told, Fatal Forecast is first and foremost a tale of miraculous survival. Mostamazing is the story of Ernie Hazzard, who managed to crawl inside a tiny inflatable life raft and then spent more than fifty terrifying hours adrifton the stormy open sea. By turns tragic, thrilling, and inspiring, Ernie's story deserves a place among the greatest survival tales ever told. Equall y riveting are the stories of the brave men and women from the Coast Guard and the crew of a nearby fishing boat who imperiled their own lives that day in order to save the lives of others. As gripping and harrowing as The Perfect Storm - but with a miracle ending - Fatal Forecast is an unforgettable true story about the collision of two spectacular forces: the brutality of nature and the human will to survive." - from the dj. Remainder mark, else very good in dustjacket. 15.00
