Doctors in Blue : The Medical History of the Union Army in the Civil War, Adams, George Worthington
1 Adams, George Worthington Doctors in Blue : The Medical History of the Union Army in the Civil War
New York Schuman 1952 First Edition Cloth SIGNED by the Author
(1952). Near Fine in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Bound in full blue cloth. The spine is stamped in dark blue and gilt. Octavo. [xii] + 253pps. + 16 pages of photos. There is mild bumping to the tips and a previous owner's name is neatly penned in the upper corner of the ffep. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. No apparent reading wear. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has light rubbing wear at the extremities and along the folds and a couple of closed tears at the head of the spine; the original price is intact. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on a special tipped-in page. ".Based on extensive study of surgeons' reports, inspectors observations, soldier narratives and other first-hand materials, 'Doctors in Blue' fills a long glaring gap in the story of American medicine and the history of the American Civil War. Dr. Adams, already distinguished for research in Confederate experience, develops the subject of health and medical practice on the Union side with remarkable skill and balance. Disease, on the Northern side as on the Southern, was far more deadly to the fighting men than were the bullets of their opponents. Behind the sickness and mortality statistics of the Civil War lay ignorance, stupidity, inefficiency, and jealousy. But behind them also, are to be seen earnestness, cooperative spirit, and great strides of scientific knowledge. Many aspects of the Civil War have been written about profusely but the important theme of medicine has never before had its general historian. In this book the reader will find a warm and human story of the contributions made by the great military medical men of the period and a compelling picture of the roles played by the hospital attendants, ambulance men and the army's first women nurses."

2 Albom, Mitch For One More Day

The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is very mildly rubbed; the original price is intact. SIGNED and inscribed by the author to the original owner on the half-title page.

"...The story of a mother and a son, and a relationship that covers a lifetime and beyond. It explores the question: What would you do if you could spend one more day with a lost loved one? As a child, Charley 'Chick' Benetto was told by his father, 'You can be a mama's boy or a daddy's boy, but you can't be both.' So he chooses his father, only to see the man disappear when Charley is on the verge of adolescence. Decades later, Charley is a broken man. His life has been crumbled by alcohol and regret. He loses his job. He leaves his family. He hits bottom after discovering his only daughter has shut him out of her wedding. And he decides to take his own life. He makes a midnight ride to his small hometown, with plans to do himself in. But upon failing even to do that, he staggers back to his old house, only to make an astonishing discovery. His mother -- who died eight years earlier -- is still living there, and welcomes him home as if nothing ever happened. What follows is the one 'ordinary' day so many of us yearn for, a chance to make good with a lost parent, to explain the family secrets, and to seek forgiveness. Somewhere between this life and the next, Charley learns the astonishing things he never knew about his mother and her sacrifices. And he tries, with her tender guidance, to put the crumbled pieces of his life back together."

"John Fielding was famous not only as cofounder of London's first police force, the Bow Street Runners, but also as a magistrate of keen intellect, fairness and uncommon detective ability. When a crime was committed, he often took it upon himself to solve it. What made this all the more remarkable was that he was blind.
Now the blind magistrate and his young assistant and ward, Jeremy Proctor, face a series of crimes that hit shockingly close to home. Prostitutes are being murdered around Covent Garden, and there are troubling implications about the identity of the killer..."

"A profound and enriching experience for all young readers, this stirring fourth book of the Prydain cycle is in keeping with the distinguished literary standards of the previous three books. Here Taran goes questing for his parentage, hoping that it will prove nobel for the sake of a certain princess with red-gold hair. Accompanied by the faithful Gurgi, he goes first to the three wily enchantresses of the Marshes of Morva who send him to consult the Mirror of Llunet to learn who he is with the cryptic promise that 'the finding takes no more than the looking.' Joined by some of his old friends, Taran, sidetracked time and time again by exciting adventures, eventually comes to the rugged wasteland where the shepherd Craddoc lives and for a time gains a father -- and comes to know shame.
In a deeply moving climax at the Mirror of Llunet which is not an ending but a beginning, Taran Wanderer learns who he is and the secret of the Mirror -- which the wily Enchantresses had known all along..."

In this beautifully illustrated volume, Dr. Atwood, President of Clark University and the foremost authority on the Rocky Mountains, tells the story of our most magnificent mountain area with its many-hued gorges, its snow-capped peaks, its glaciers, and its awe-inspiring scenery. 'The Rocky Mountains' takes the reader on an exhilarating camping trip -- one which he will not soon forget. During the day, he climbs on horseback through the high mountains, breathing champagne air and learning the incredible story of the origin and growth of the Rockies. In the evening, around the campfire with cowhands and members of the exploring party, he hears tales of the first white settlers, of the free and easy mining days, of the ranchmen who form the backbone of our western people today. As he turns in to warm blankets he will sense the grandeur of the towering rock peaks stabbing the sky around him, reaching toward the stars."

[1995]. Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Black boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. Sage-green endpapers. 233pps. First Printing. The pages are lightly tanned due to the acid content of the stock, otherwise clean and tight with a square binding. All tips are sharp. No apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings.

An excellent, collector's-quality copy.

"He is a man with a hidden, complicated past -- some of it perhaps unspeakably violent, much of it spent in thrall to an almost slavish fascination with seventeenth-century Flemish art. Now he is lured, unknowing, into a scheme to authenticate a set of suspect paintings, and -- as if in payment for his work, as if from out of the paintings themselves -- a mysterious woman emerges into his life and merges with it. She seems to him to come alive only under his gaze. The mix of detachment and passion that fuels her reminds him of, and then gradually taps into, his own darkest impulses. And as their affair grows more dangerous and compulsive, he begins to sense that it is being mirrored, perhaps even prefigured, in the paintings themselves. Yet nothing forewarns him of the moment when the forgery scheme will be brought to light and its unexpected, crushing ramifications abruptly revealed."

Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. No previous ownership markings. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the ffep.

"...In 'Ill Wind', Barr's powerful new novel, Park Ranger Anna Pigeon confronts death among the ruins. Colorado's Mesa Verde National Park is noted for its well-preserved cliff dwellings, the sole legacy of the Anasazi civilization, which vanished without any other trace in the twelfth century. Separated from friends and family and haunted by personal demons, Anna finds solace in these quiet ruins, their pinon-scented turrets and towers backlit by the fading blue of distant mountain ranges. But the rugged beauty of the park and the mystery of the Anasazi are cruelly overshadowed by danger and death. An unusually high number of medical rescues and the unexpected death of an asthmatic child are followed by the sudden demise of a fellow ranger who is found neatly curled up in one of the ancient kivas, his hat and shoes at his side. Anna had thought she'd found a friend in this man, had seen him as a kindred spirit, but his death transforms him into an enigma. Puzzled and more deeply wounded than she'd ever dare admit, Anna immerses herself in the ensuing investigation. As she sifts through shifting loyalties and struggles to honor the past, she must face forces both seen and unseen which threaten her career -- and her very life..."
