Fine in a Fine slipcase. Tan cloth boards quarterbound in brown leather. The spine is gilt-stamped. Tan endpapers. 139pps., plus numerous illustrations. Stated First Hardcover Edition.

"As I tried to recreate Sam Houston's retreat from the Guadalupe River toward the San Jacinto Basin, I discovered inconsistencies that made no sense. Houston knew the Alamo had just been destroyed in San Antonio seventy miles away and that Santa Anna, with perhaps six-thousand troops, was marching toward Houston's position. Houston had only a few hundred ill-equipped and poorly disciplined men under his command, and it is only reasonable to think that he should have fled eastward immediately before he was encircled and destroyed, as Bowie, Travis, and Crockett had been at San Antonio. Instead, he delayed his retreat for twenty-four hours. In my reading I became fascinated with the historical players in the story. Revisionists sometimes take a pleasure, it seems, in denigrating the lives or deeds of those who become emblematic of what is best in us. But the story of the Alamo is one of inalterable fact. One-hundred eighty-eight Texans held off six-thousand enemy troops for 13 days. Houston sent a letter to Travis and Bowie telling them that no help would be forthcoming; however, they never faltered, never considered surrender, and instead gave their lives to the last man in order to delay Santa Anna's advance into east Texas. In fact, a group of twenty or so volunteers made their way through Mexican lines to join those inside the Alamo, knowing that their lives were automatically forfeit." -- from the author's Introduction.

A shadowy multinational corporation is attempting to wrest control of the very seas themselves -- no matter what havoc results -- and is killing anyone who attempts to stop them.

As New in a Near Fine Slipcase. Decorative marbled boards quarterbound in brown leatherette. The spine, the front board, and the ffep are lushly stamped in gilt. Large octavo. Tan endpapers. 446pps., plus 16 pages of photos. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Yet to be read. The slipcase, of the same lushly gilt-stamped brown leatherette, has a single flaw: a 1" crack along one seam; it is cosmetic and unobtrusive, not structural. This is copy #18 of 600 SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on a special limitation page. ".For twenty-three years, Clive Cussler's NUMAŽ -- the National Underwater & Marine Agency -- has scoured the rivers and seas in search of lost ships of historic significance. His teams have been inundated by tidal waves, and beset by the vagaries of man and nature, but the results -- and the stories behind them -- have often been dramatic: The 2000 raising of the Confederate submarine Hunley made national headlines. Here, then, are more true tales of sea-and land-going adventures, as Cussler and his crews set out to track down history. The famous ghost ship Mary Celeste, found floating off the Azores in 1872 with no one on board; the Carpathia, the ship that rescued the Titanic survivors and was itself lost to U-boats six years later; L'Oiseau Blanc, the airplane that almost beat The Spirit of St. Louis across the Atlantic before disappearing in the Maine woods -- all these, plus steamboats, ironclads, a seventeenth-century flagship, a certain famous PT boat, and even a dirigible, prove tantalizing targets."

20 Heinlein, Robert A. Stranger in a Strange Land
New York Putnam's 1991 Limited Edition Full-Leather 
[1991]. In Near Fine condition. Bound in full red leather. All panels are lushly and decoratively stamped in gilt. Quarto. Page-edges gilt. Sewn-in red silk bookmark. Salmon colored silk moire endpapers. 491pps., with a Preface by the author's wife regarding this new/old expanded edition (Heinlein's original edition). The gilt on the spine-panel is dulled due to handling and there are touches of rubbing and scratching to the gilt of the page-edges, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The text is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. Printed for the Science Fiction Book Club in a special limited edition. A very nice, collector's-quality copy of this high spot of Science Fiction literature. This classic was the winner of the 1962 Hugo Award.

"Not since the publication of Philip Wylie's 'Generation of Vipers' has there been a book quite so so deliberately designed to make us uncomfortable about nearly everything we take for granted. In this entertaining and often shocking novel, however, Mr. Heinlein uses fictional characters in fictional situations to attack all explanations of the universe offered on faith, to undermine the idea of sexual relations founded on jealousy, and to annoy the materialists and the politicians. Although certain of the techniques of science fiction are used, 'Stranger in a Strange Land' might be classed as a philosophical fantasy, or as an entertainment, or, perhaps, as Cabellesque satire. A completely freewheeling look at contemporary culture from the nonhuman viewpoint of someone from another culture, it is unlike anything that has ever been done before. It is deliberately annoying, and often very funny. It runs down the sacred cows and slaughters them hilariously. Although he knew it was an impossible objective, Mr. Heinlein's purpose in writing this novel was to examine every major axiom of Western culture, to question each axiom, throw doubt on it -- and, if possible -- to make the antithesis of each axiom appear a possible and perhaps desirable thing -- rather than unthinkable."
