1 Agee, James

Death in the Family
New York, N.Y.
Quartet Books Lim
1980
0704333260 / 9780704333260

Soft Cover
Good to Fair





Some edgewear and creasing of spine and covers,as well age toning, otherwise still a fair reading copy - from the OCLC :"On a sultry summer night in 1915, Jay Follet leaves his house in Knoxville, Tennessee, to tend to his father, whom he believes is dying. The summons turns out to be a false alarm, but on his way back to his family, Jay has a car accident and is killed instantly. Dancing back and forth in time and braiding the viewpoints of Jay's wife, brother, and young son, Rufus, Agee creates an overwhelmingly powerful novel of innocence, tenderness and loss that should be read aloud for the sheer music of its prose."

Very slight edgewear and faint creasing of spine and covers, otherwise a fine clean tight and bright copy - from the publisher:"Some things just can't be undone. For Scott and Gail, Scott's five-minute indiscretion was the end of their 15-year marriage. Told from the individual perspectives of each member of the family, every chapter is a new voice and the family takes it in turns to tell us its story. Scott is the husband and father, who feels rather a failure at both, and wonders how he will survive with the binliner of belongings his wife tossed out onto the front lawn; Gail, the wife and mother, is sick of being the responsible parent, and questions whether Scott's affair was just the excuse she was looking for to get out of her marriage; Nat, or Natty, is the 13-year-old son who resents his father for leaving, but likes to distract himself by winding up his little sister; and Rosie is a precocious nine-year-old, who loves her Daddy, the colour mauve, lollies and glittery nail polish."

Hardcover - minor shelfwear otherwise a fine clean sturdy copy. Dust jacket is slightly chipped and rubbed, but also quite good. From the dust jacket "Mudras in Japan by Lokesh Chandra and his late wife Sharada Rani is a collection of symbolic hand postures used in the rituals of Japanese Esoteric Buddhism of the Shingon denomination. The mudras have been an integral part of Buddhist iconography as well as of ritual. In Tantric rituals, the recitation of a mantra was accompanied by a mudra, and a ritual action. In the Mahavairocana sutra mudras are vital constituents of worship and meditation. Japan has the earliest manuscript of the mudras. The most ancient scroll is from the pen of Subhakarasimha of Nalanda, who lived from 637 to 735. The copy at the Onjoji monastery is dated 855. Another manuscript dated 864 has mudras of the susiddhi-tantra"

The Vaastu Workbook: Using the Subtle Energies of the Indian Art of Placement
U.S.A.
Destiny Books
2001
0892819405 / 9780892819409

Soft Cover
Fine





Just a touch of edgewear otherwise a truly lovely copy. From the back cover:"What makes a house a home, a place of renewal and refuge, a place of balance and peace? It is vaastu, the Indian art of environmental design, a practice that helps you create a home that is in harmony with the natural and spiritual energies surrounding it. Vaastu, like holistic medicine, focuses on addressing underlying issues for the health of the entire system--the people as well as the physical structures and property on which they live. The Vaastu Workbook not only provides the blueprint for a perfect vaastu home but also fully explains the tradition within its Indian context. It presents vaastu as it was meant to be understood--as an interconnected part of the great Indian tradition of sacred knowledge, along with ayurveda, yoga, and vedic astrology. Using more than 140 line illustrations, along with charts for scoring the vaastu of a particular site, The Vaastu Workbook allows you to apply this knowledge to quickly assess the pros and cons of any building situation. The author, who is the director of the foremost vaastu center in India, takes you through every conceivable vaastu situation, exploring the dos and don?ts of window and door placement, interior design, street focus, directional facing, landscaping, and much more, in order to maximize the potential of a given property. He shares his own personal experiences and the circumstances of others to illustrate the power of vaastu in action. Introductory chapters provide a thorough grounding in the basics of Indian astrology, the five elements, and the healing tradition of ayurveda, all of which are necessary to truly understand the importance of angles and quadrants in vaastu. He also discusses the difference between vaastu and feng shui and reviews frequently asked questions about vaastu principles. With this knowledge in hand, even a beginner can quickly learn how to design a new home--or renovate an existing one--in order to bring peace, prosperity, and happiness to those who live there. DR. TALAVANE KRISHNA practiced medicine in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom for twenty years before returning to India. He now directs the Indus Valley Ayurvedic Center (IVAC) in Mysore. The center is situated on fifteen acres, with an accompanying eight acres of gardens containing over eight hundred species of medicinal plants. In April 2001, the center was recognized as the Best Global Model in Alternative Medicine--Ayurveda, and the center is now certified for a Ph.D. program in Yoga Ayurveda. Dr. Krishna spends part of each year in the San Diego area with his wife and family. In addition to his work at the IVAC, he gives vaastu consultations and lectures around the world."

Giacometti: A Biography
U.S.A.
Farrar Straus & Giroux
1986
0374520062 / 9780374520069

Soft Cover
Good





Some edgewear and creasing of covers and spine, otherwise still a good reading copy. From the publisher:"The work of one of the towering creative spirits of the century, Alberto Giacometti's visionary sculptures and paintings from a testament to the artist's intriguing life story. From modest beginnings in a Swiss village, Giacometti went on to flourish in the picturesque milieu of prewar Paris and then to achieve international acclaim in the fifties and sixties. Picasso, Balthus, Samuel Beckett, Stravinsky and Sartre have parts in his story, along with flamboyant art dealers, whores, shady drifters, unscrupulous collectors, poets and thieves. Women were a complex yet important element of his life--particularly his wife, Annette, and his last mistress and model, Caroline--as was the intimate relationship he shared with his brother Diego, who was both Alberto's confidant and collaborator. James Lord was personally acquainted with Giacometti and his entourage, and combines firsthand experience with a unique knowledge gathered during many years of observation and research. In this exceptional biography Lord unfolds the personal history of a man who managed to achieve a heroic destiny by remaining utterly true to himself and to his calling.Giacometti: A Biography was nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award. James Lord has subsequently published three volumes of memoirs. In recognition of his contribution to French culture he has been made an officer of the Legion of Honour."
