Now her life is a wating game. Waiting for time to heal her wounds, waiting for justice. In short, waiting for a miracle to happen.

Book Description [Philadelphia:, 1913. 8" x 105". Two horizontal folds, else Very Good. Rudolph Blankenburg, the Mayor of Philadelphia, wrote an article for the Scientific American entitled, "The Municipal Need of Technically Trained Men" which was published in Vol. 108, April 12, 1913, pp. 341-343. This letter evidently pertains to that article. The recipient of Blankenburg's letter, John Ritchie, Jr., was one of the organizers of the Boston Scientific Society. He and Seth Carlo Chandler, Jr., devised a telegraphic code that substantially improved the transmission of numerical scientific data. We do not warrant the genuineness of the signature.

Book Description 2 pp. 12 x 7 inches, in very good clean condition, integral blank leaf, remains of guard. Namur in the Downs, 19 April 1734. Sir John Norris (1660-1749) writes in the year that he was promoted to Admiral and Commander in Chief. In the summer of 1734 Norris commanded the large fleet mustered in the Downs or at Spithead. Norris, whose nickname was "foul-weather Jack", saw a good deal of service during the War of the Spanish Succession under William III and Anne. Under George I he was sent several times with a fleet into the Baltic Sea to forward the king's policy by giving the northern nations some idea of the strength of Great Britain. Norris had been promoted admiral on 20 February, promoted to be admiral and commander-in-chief, and that summer commanded the large fleet which was mustered in the Downs, or at Spithead, with the union flag at the main. This letter could well belong to a series by Norris to Wager, most of which are in the Library of Congress (see Worthington Chauncey Ford, List of the Vernon-Wager Manuscripts, 1904), with at least one from the series in the National Archives at Kew (a letter of 4 April 1734, SP 36/31/127, folio 127). Among the Washington MSS is a letter dated 11 April 1734 reporting on movements of French ships, a subject which is taken up in this letter (see extract quoted above). Bookseller Inventory # 16475

[4], XLIII, [1], 383, [1]pp. 19th-century full calf, with gold lettering to spine. Raised bands. Decorative head-, tailpieces and initial. Signed and dated 1750 at top of title page.Thomas Church's "A vindication of the miraculous powers" is one of the two written answers to Conyers Middleton's "A Free Inquiry into the Miraculous Powers," published in 1748, in which the author denied the credibility of the stories of miracles in periods subsequent to the first age of the church, attacked the character of the narrators, and explained the origin of the narratives by the general credulity of the times in which they arose. The other published refutation of Middleton's book was William Dodwell's "Free Answer to Dr. Middleton's Free Inquiry into the Miraculous Powers of the Primitive Church," (London, 1749). British priest and controversialist, Thomas Church's vindication against Conyers Middleton, earned him the degree of Doctor of Divinity (DD) from the University of Oxford. Binding rubbed along edges, with some abrasion to leather on spine. Head of spine chipped. Stamp of the University of California Riverside on inside of front cover, and at top and bottom edge. Binding in overall fair to good-, interior in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 42024
