At the height of his prodigious powers, in 1893, Anton Dvorak was persuaded to leave his native Bohemia to come to New York to be Director of the National Conservatory of Music. Out of this brief biographical footnote, Skvorecky has fashioned a brilliant tale: the story of the composer's lifelong love for hissister-in-law Josephine; his passion for America; and his championship of black musicians." -from the rear cover.

6 WILSON, Paul C. ISELIN, Alan Modern Rowing. First American Edition in dustjacket
Stackpole Books, Harrisburg, PA, 1969,

Index. 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to spine.Toy 4269. "Few innovations in rowing have caused such widespread debate as the modern style developed by the Ratzeburger Ruderclub in Germany. On the International level this style has almost complete dominance, but in club and college competition it has had mixed fortunes because coaches do not understand its basic principles. This book contains a complete analysis of this style - the principles behind it, its appearance when done properly, andits performance characteristics — as well as chapters on faults in rowing, fitness training, psychology, and rig and equipment. It is an indispensabl e guide for any active oarsman. Paul Wilson did the formative coaching of the brilliant 1967 First and Third Trinity crew, which, was Head of the River in the Cambridge Lents and Mays, won the Ladies Plate at Henley, and beatthe Cambridge University crew in the Cambridge Regatta." - from the dj. Co ntents : 1. Introduction; 2. The International Modern Style; 3. Faults; 4. Training for technique; 5. Training for strength; 6. Psychology of rowing; 7. Rig and equipment.

9 SKVORECKY, Josef. WILSON, Paul, trans. Return of Lieutenant Boruvka : A Reactionary Tale of Crime and Detection. First Edition in dustjacket
W.W. Norton & Co., New York, 1991, 
SKVORECKY, Josef. The Return of Lieutenant Boruvka : A Reactionary Tale of Crime and Detection. Translated and adapted by Paul Wilson. New York / London: W.W. Norton & Company, (1991). First US Printing. Pp. (8),[9]-159,(1). 8vo, black cloth spine with purple paper covered boards, purple lettering to spine. "Things looked very black fro Lieutenant Boruvka in 'The End of Lieutenant Boruvka'. Butin this, the fourth and (perhaps) final volume in theseries, the sad-eyed detective turns up again, this time in Canada. Boruvk a is working as a parking-lot attendant in downtown Toronto, after a spectacular escape from a Czech prison which provoked an international scandal, when a young woman is murdered, perhaps in a spy coverup. Boruvka lends his years of experience and hard-won pessimism to the neophyte Canadians on thecase (including his daughter, who works for a feminist detective agency). By having this story -- his most riveting and funniest yet -- narrated by the murdered woman's brother, an amiable WASP, Josef Skvorecky sets the Old World against the New, and pokes fun at the absurdities on both sides of our cultural divide. In the end, as an old war crime is avenged, the narratordiscovers the source of Lieutenant Boruvka's mournful demeanour." -from th e dustjacket. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 20.00
