3 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."

4 Angeles Arrien

The Tarot Handbook: Practical Applications of Ancient Visual Symbols
USA
Arcus Publishing Company
1994
0916955028 / 9780916955021

Soft Cover
Very Good





Some edgewear and creasing of spine and covers, a couple spots on front cover, interior fine. From the publisher:"shows us how this time-honored application is both a visual and symbolic map of consciousness, and a source of ancient wisdom. An exciting handbook for either a beginning or an ardent student of the tarot, it contains a multitude of charts, spreads, illustrations of the Thoth Deck, and other methodology tools for anyone looking for insights into personal and spiritual development. An anthropologist who specializes in cross-cultural myths, Arrien demonstrates how the seventy-eight figures of the tarot are portraitures and archetypes that are prevalent in the collective human experience. The author teaches us to use this realization to look beyond our cultural viewpoint or bias when we approach the tarot, and to rely instead on these more important universal principles, thereby deepening the quality and accuracy of our interpretations and expanding our awareness of the human psyche. A significant and classic piece of tarot literature, The Tarot Handbook is both a required manual for teachers and students of the subject, and an accessible and fascinating exploration of cultural anthropology."

7 Antonette Matteson

The Occult Family Physician and Botanic Guide to Health

1993

Soft Cover
As New





Appears NEW AND UNREAD! Just a hint of edgewear otherwise pristine. From the publisher :"Despite its title, this is not a book about occult practices. Spiritualism was in its heyday when this book first appeared. The author, trusting intuitive methods in healing, and "convinced of the existence of intelligent spirit," was guided by her common sense. Health concerns were not so different in her time than in our own: pollution, incompetent medical treatment and dangerous chemical drugs. Mrs. Matteson's book is valuable for many simple and formulated recipes using herbs, fruits and spices. This edition makes available an important American herbal which deserves a modern-day audience."

Vaastu: The Indian Art of Placement
U.S.A.
Destiny Books
2000
0892818859 / 9780892818853

Soft Cover
As New





Appears NEW AND UNREAD! From the back cover:"The subtle art of energy management for prosperity, good health, and calm mind has been introduced to the West through feng shui. Until now the ancient practice of vaastu, the Hindu art of environmental design, has been relatively unknown. Born of the same Hindu understanding of universal forces that informs yoga, vaastu is the human expression of life?s impulse to harmonize itself with the cosmos. The great culture at Harrapa, in 3000 B.C., applied vaastu to create cities at a level of sophistication that would only be reached again in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Housed in a library in north India, the codified tenets of vaastu were destroyed in medieval times by successive invaders into the country; however, the art of vaastu remained alive, through oral tradition and buried deep within other treatises. The rediscovery of these texts in the 1930s has led to a modern revival of this art in India--brought to Western readers for the first time in V aastu:The Indian Art of Placement. Vaastu elucidates principles that orient and plan each element of a structure, both the big picture and the small details. A building?s site, ground plan, shape, and orientation are all-important considerations, as are soil quality, window placement, and construction materials. The affinities of household items--the telephone, computer, bath--with the five elements of nature, and thus their ideal placement within the structure, are also described. Guidelines for modifying existing buildings help the reader apply the vaastu principles in a practical manner. Vaastu: The Indian Art of Placement will assist in creating personal environments that promote peace, harmony, and health. "

9 Asaro, Catherine

Old Tappan, New Jersey, U.S.A.
Luna
2004
037380203X / 9780373802036

Soft Cover
Very Good





Very slight edgewear and faint creasing of spine and covers otherwise a fine clean tight and bright copy. From the Barnes & Noble Review:"Nebula Award winning author Catherine Asaro, renowned for her epic science fiction saga of the Skolian Empire (The Quantum Rose, Spherical Harmonic, et al.), has penned her first full-length fantasy novel with The Charmed Sphere -- a story about insatiable greed, wild magic, and untamed love.Originally a novella entitled "Moonglow" in 2003's Charmed Destinies anthology, The Charmed Sphere is the much-expanded story about a reluctant mage and an equally reluctant heir. Chime is living an idyllic life with her family in the rural hamlet of Jacob's Vale. But her life is turned upside down when one of the King of Aronsdale's most trusted advisers, searching the kingdom for shape-mages, identifies her as a promising mage with powerful undeveloped ability. Chime reluctantly agrees to travel to Castle Suncroft, where she is to be trained in the art of magecraft -- and also groomed for her marriage to Prince Muller, the heir to the throne of Aronsdale! Muller is the nephew to the king, and the last thing he wants to do is get married and rule a kingdom. He's more concerned with fashion than affairs of state. When the King of Aronsdale dies and Muller continues to postpone his royal ascension, the leader of a neighboring kingdom -- along with an insane mage bent on destroying Aronsdale -- sees the transition as the perfect time to strike. Simply put, The Charmed Sphere is a novel of superlatives. If a reader were to choose only one new romantic fantasy to read, it should be Catherine Asaro's unforgettable gem. Paul Goat Allen

First Edition
Soft Cover
Very Good





First edition, stated. Minor edgewear and several neatly underlined passages of text, otherwise a very nice copy. From the publisher:" On a January day in the depths of mid-western winter Dorothy Atalla expected more of the same: snow , ice and gray skies. But when she lay down on her living room carpet to relax with music, she had an experience which changed her life. Inexplicably, a vision of a radiant and beneficent female presence appeared to her. This astonishing event was only the beginning of a journey she could never have imagined in her wildest dreams. That vision foreshadowed the dialogue with a deity which is the essence of this book. Conversations with the Goddess swiftly evolves from a personal story into a universal story in which a feminine Presence speaks about the role of the sacred Feminine in the future. She also speaks of the past, revealing a panoramic view of a time in which the Goddess was revered not only at Petra but also throughout the ancient world. Her story is a multiplicity of strands which she deftly weaves together, creating a tapestry that spans immense time frames in earth s evolution. As her tale progresses, people from the deep past step forward to tell about their lives and their relationship with the Goddess. And a fascinating group of characters they are from Zillah, slave woman, to Hayyan al-Shubri, high priest who serves the chief goddess of Petra. Woven into the dialogues are lively commentaries about Petra as a cosmic power point, women as agents for planetary evolution, and restoration of ancient Goddess knowledge and women s mysteries. Other threads in this weaving are also relevant to modern women: woman s innate spiritual power, earth s powers and the powers of woman, symbolism in female artifacts and the consciousness which created them, what the dark Feminine really is, correction of misperceptions about the nature of the Great Goddess, and a path toward balance of the divine Feminine and the divine Masculine."

Hardcover 1st edition Some shelf and edgewear, otherwise a good clean solid copy. Dust jacket is in great condition - There is no more profound, enduring or fascinating question in all of science than that of how time, space, and matter began. Now John Barrow, who has been at the cutting edge of research in this area and has written extensively about it, guides us on a journey to the beginning of time, into a world of temperatures and densities so high that we cannot recreate them in a laboratory. With new insights, Barrow draws us into the latest speculative theories about the nature of time and the “inflationary universe,” explains “wormholes,” showing how they bear upon the fact of our own existence, and considers whether there was a “singularity” at the inception of the universe. Here is a treatment so up-to-date and intellectually rich, deaing with ideas and speculation at the farthest frontier of science, that neither novice nor expert will want to miss what Barrow has to say. The Origin of the Universe is ”In the Beginning” for beginners—the latest information from a first-rate scientist and science writer

Hashimoto, Alan (Jacket Art)

Some slight shelfwear, slight spine crease with lean, slight bumping, slight rubbing on dust jacket; otherwise a clean and tight copy. Smaller hardcover book club edition. From the publisher:"the story of the Star Streak Hypersonic airliner, which is the successor to the supersonic Concorde. During a routine flight, an unexplainable engine malfunction hurls Consolidated Flight 14 far too high and into a low-earth orbit. With only limited oxygen onboard, Captain Donald Collins is about to try a desperate and unproven maneuver to save the ship and its 100 passengers. On the ground, one of the designers of the aircraft has discovered evidence that the airliner might have been sabotaged. It becomes a race against time and the inescapable laws of physics to save the airliner and those onboard who are still alive."
