        Doctor Mirabilis

      UK: Faber. London, Faber, 1964. Hardback first edition and first impression. A very good copy. The jacket has light edge wear, some toning and rubbing, and a little bumping and wear to the spine tips. A few very small closed tears to the edges. Price-clipped. This copy is somewhat exceptional insofar as Blish has inscribed it thus "To the editor who took all the \ fat our of the MS, and so made \ this whatever book it is, \ my best wishes, Ann - \ James Blish \ Highgate, 1965." It is also inscribed at the top "Ann Corlett \ Highgate \ 1963" Ann Corlett, was Blish's editor to whom he felt quite indebted. The foreward of the present book includes an acknowledgement of this. Given both Blish and Corlett's inscriptions are located in Highgate, it seems likely that Blish inscribed the book for Corlett. A wonderful association. . Very Good. Hardback. 1st Edition. 1964.

        Two Sketchbooks of an American-Israeli Artist

      Two sketchbooks. Both are small oblong quartos. The images are largely watercolors, but with some ink, gouache, and other media.1. Spiral bound cardboard ("Windsor Wire Bound Sketch Book"). Modest stain and some ink notes on front cover, very good or better, internally fine. Spanning the period of 1964-1965. 16 images including several watercolors, many of Niagara Falls. Several are signed and dated.2. Red Cloth. Modest wear and small stains, very good, internally fine. Spanning 1984-1985 (Hand-lettered on spine "Anita Kushner 1984-85"). Each of the 78 pages are used for images, often double-paged, and the vast majority are highly accomplished watercolors. Most are signed. The topics are largely impressionist images of Israeli scenes made after she emigrated, many in the area of Beit Shemesh. Her continued development from the earlier album is obvious.Anita Kushner (1935-2011) was born in Pennsylvania and studied art in Philadelphia, later emigrating to Israel where she lived in the city of Beit Shemesh, west of Jerusalem. She exhibited in over 30 solo shows in museums and galleries in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Israel, including at the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Museum of Israeli Art, Museum of Modern Art in Haifa, and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. She was the sole artist whose work was displayed at the home of Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin during the historic signing of the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt in 1979. As recently as 2012 her art was exhibited at the Westmoreland Museum of American Art to commemorate Women's History Month. The watercolors presented here are especially impressive. .

The aesthetic beauty and simplicity of his work is unparalleled. Among his many inventions was the system of Roman striking,[5] the tic-tac escapement, and probably the anchor escapement.[citation needed] His merits were recognised by his being appointed clockmaker to Charles II and then to James II. Clock cases of Knibb's era were wooden, and therefore were made by specialist clockcase makers who were members of the Worshipful Company of Joiners and Ceilers.[6] The politician Richard Legh (1635?87) wrote to his wife describing Knibb's advice on choosing a case for a longcase clock:

Volume 1: xi + 836pp. Volume 2: viii + 1036pp. Volume 3: xxvi + 830pp. Volume 4: xviii + 770pp. Volume 5: xxii + 696pp. Volume 6: xviii + 766pp. Volume 7: x + 696pp. Volume 8: xiii + 808pp. The glassine dust jackets show just some light edge wear and have varying degrees of age toning. They have protected this set very nicely. Volumes III-VI, and Vol VIII have lightly speckled top edges (as issued). ALL VOLUMES ARE FINE. This is Thorndike?s classic work. It was originally published in separate parts between 1923 and 1958. The original aim of this work was to treat and document the history of magic, alchemy and experimental science (including medical experimentation) during the first thirteen centuries of our era. This is covered within the first two volumes. The remaining volumes cover the 14th through 17th centuries (Vols 3 & 4: fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, Vols 5 & 6: sixteenth century, Vols 7 & 8: seventeenth century). Magic is understood under the broadest sense of the work, as including all occult arts and sciences, superstitions and folklore. The author believes that magic and experimental science have been connected in their development, and within these pages he has attempted to prove the same. The amount of information included is staggering with detailed notes referring to original sources throughout. There is a 169 page index to all volumes at the end of volume 8. A superb and unsurpassed reference work.
