        Weapons Systems and Political Stability - A History

      University Press of America, Inc. / The Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, USA, 1983, Hardcover, Book Condition: Good, First EditionSize: 8vo - over 7?" - 9?" tall, 1043 pages. Bibliography. List of books and articles by the author. "Carroll Quigley, historian and teacher at Georgetown University, died January 5, 1977, leaving unfinished this manuscript upon which he had been working for the preceding twelve years. His colleagues and friends, upon reviewing the manuscript, decided to press forward with its publication. Although the manuscript is frustratingly incomplete in time sequence - it ends its narrative in the fifteenth century - it carries further toward completion the uniquely anthropological holistic analysis of history which is the theme of his earlier works... Quigley is incredibly successful in abstracting essence from reality - in analyzing mankind's experience in socializing. He describes weaponry as not an end in itself. It is part of a whole in which by far the greater part of persuasion and cooperation is accomplished by institutionalization of ideologies. This book is one of those human efforts which shapes the mind." - from Foreword by Harry J. Hogan. Moderate external wear. Some rubbing to large silver lettering upon front board. Light pencil underlining and marginal lines. Binding tight.

"Concerned entirely with the Haidas of the Queen Charlotte Islands of the last century, the intricacies of the kinship patterns of the great families, and how they saw themselves as part of a fantastic, but in its own terms, logical, cosmos, and most of all how this was all expressed in their remarkable architecture with its perfectly integrated massive carved and painted embellishments, the great totem poles of the Haidas." - from Foreward. "The documentary photographs that survive are among the few remaining records which illustrate the richness and variety of Haida monumental art. Of the more than five hundred carved poles which appear in the plates, only about fifty were removed to museums for safekeeping. The remainder have perished entirely or survive at the village sites as decayed fragments overgrown with the lush vegetation of the islands." - from Preface.

        Flight Path

      Clonemel, Tipperary, Ireland:: Coracle,, 2011.. Edition of 6. 5.25 x 6.75 x .75"; 6 pages. Accordion. Letterpress. Blue cloth covered boards. Erica Van Horn: "Flight Path came about as a continuation of my love of the concertina. The book can be seen both page-by-page and as a long panorama of activity. Since 1983, I have worked with both folded paper and casebound concertinas. In the case of Flight Path, the hand-painted pages of sky are the ground for the embossed letter-pressed airplane. The piece is a continuation from Antwerp Airport (1993, edition 35), where I used photo copy on hand-painted pages."Erica Van Horn, additionally: "My painted pages were cut to size and a block was made from my drawing. He [Simon Cutts] then had the tricky job of placing the planes as close as possible to my plans, using our little Adana press. Once they were dry, the pages were then glued down in order. I am quite thrilled with the results as I like the ephemeral nature of the paint with the solidity of the printed plane and the rigid boards."Nancy Kuhl, "Narrative and Pattern" from The Book Remembers Everything: The Work of Erica Van Horn: "In her books, Erica Van Horn often explores the elements of visual narrative and the ways those elements of visual narrative might be exploited and subverted within the linear structure of the book. In an entirely modern reinterpretation of the heavy use of patterns found in the borders and backgrounds of much Medieval art, the recurrence of visual patterns frame and shape scenes and figures, underscoring what might be thought of as plot in visual narratives. ... Van Horn's frequent use of the accordion format, which looks and functions like a book but can also be unfolded to reveal a many-paneled panorama, provides her narratives with a page-by-page pace while also calling to mind the scope and grandeur of panoramic images.
