King Solomon´s Ring by Konrad Z. Lorenz

"Solomon, the legend goes, had a magic ring which enabled him to speak to the animals in their own language. Konrad Lorenz was gifted with a similar power of understanding the animal world. He was that rare beast, a brilliant scientist who could write (and indeed draw) beautifully. He did more than any other person to establish and popularize the study of how animals behave, receiving a Nobel Prize for his work. King Solomon's Ring, the book which brought him worldwide recognition, is a delightful treasury of observations and insights into the lives of all sorts of creatures, from jackdaws and water-shrews to dogs, cats and even wolves. Charmingly illustrated by Lorenz himself, this book is a wonderfully written introduction to the world of our furred and feathered friends, a world which often provides an uncanny resemblance to our own."

Visual Explanations: Images and Quantities, Evidence and Narrative by Edward Tufte

From an Amazon review: "Visual Explanations centers on dynamic data--information that changes over time. ... Visual Explanations is both intellectually stimulating and beautiful to behold. Tufte, a self-publisher, takes extraordinary pains with design and production. The book ranges through a variety of topics, including the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger (which could have been prevented, Tufte argues, by better information display on the part of the rocket's engineers), magic tricks, a cholera epidemic in 19th-century London, and the principle of using "the smallest effective difference" to display distinctions in data. Throughout, Tufte presents ideas with crystalline clarity and illustrates them in exquisitely rendered samples."

Alcestis by Euripides (translated and adapted by Ted Hughes)

From Library Journal: “This new verse translation and adaptation of Euripides' earliest surviving classic, Alcestis (438 B.C.E.), was British Poet Laureate Hughes's last translation before his death in 1998. Ironically, the character Death plays a prominent part in the drama. In order to let her husband, King Admetos, live, queen Alcestis gives up her young life in a bargain arranged by Apollo with Death. The tragic outcome is thwarted when Heracles visits the palace without knowing of Alcestis's death. After learning of Admetos's bereavement, Heracles, in gratitude, decides to rescue Alcestis from Death in a wrestling match. His success reunites the royal couple. … Hughes's poetic style is full of beauty and pathos. Highly recommended …”- Ming-ming Shen Kuo, Ball State Univ.

Asimov's Guide to Shakespeare by Isaac Asimov

"Shakespeare's genius is marked by his rare ability to appeal to theatergoers of all types and all levels of education.

Isaac Asimov comes to make obscure issues clear to the layperson, selects key passages from 38 of the great bard's plays plus two of his narrative poems and, with the help of beautifully rendered maps and figures, illuminates us about their historical and mythological background."

Hardback with dust jacket, ex-library, two volumes in one. Volume one covers the Greek, Roman, and Italian plays while Volume two covers the English plays. Over 1400 pages, good condition. New this retailed for $24.99; asking for $10.00ppd (within the US only).
