About this Item: Melcher Media, 2011. Hardcover. Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. First Edition. NEW book. Stated First Edition. Number line: 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1. NO remainder marks or price clippings. Tight spine, bright pages. 334 pages. Nicely illustrated throughout. Over-sized & heavy hardback. NO writing, marks or tears. Beyond Tallulah, the illustrated biography of Sam Wyly, the most versatile big-company entrepreneur in American history, tells one of the most compelling untold business stories of our time. Wyly has built 10 companies in nine different industries with 500 million- or billion-dollar valuations. He¿s the reason that Bonanza Steakhouse, Michaels Arts & Crafts and Green Mountain Energy are household names today. And his achievements serve as a valuable point of reference for today¿s generation of recession-fighting Start-up Whiz Kids. After a mercurial rise through the early computer industry in Texas, Wyly founded a data transmission company (DATRAN) with the dream of building a network of microwave towers that would enable computers to talk to each other wirelessly¿20 years before the World Wide Web existed. What happened next is a case study of high-wire business dealings that speaks to the core values of American enterprise. Wyly¿s dealings with entrenched interests foreshadow the tough questions faced by today¿s readership about the proper roles of government and business in rebuilding the country. As Wyly struggled to recover from disastrous setbacks, he never stopped asking, What's next? With exclusive access to Wyly and original interviews of more than one hundred of his colleagues and family members, biographer Dennis Hamilton draws an energetic and fast-paced portrait of a business career that soared high, courted disaster and carved a memorable path through five decades. In the end, this story of an American titan of industry is made distinctive and memorable through the details readers learn about Wyly¿s deft, sure-handed approach to deal making and a seeming sixth sense for the ebbs and flows of the financial market. In Beyond Tallulah, we watch Wyly journey from small-town high school football in the South to IBM in its Information Age heyday, from the takeover wars of the 1980s to adventures in big-scale national retailing, from the Alaska pipeline to a new generation of clean energy. Wyly¿s life promises to fascinate and inspire readers, while also serving as a blueprint for aspiring entrepreneurs. Illustrated with more than two hundred color and black-and-white photos, Beyond Tallulah preserves Wyly¿s wholly original American journey from his dirt poor Great Depression childhood in rural Louisiana to his triumph as a self-made billionaire . . . six times. Born in 1934, Sam Wyly was raised in rural Louisiana. In 1957, he received his MBA from the University of Michigan's Business School and began his career as a salesman for IBM and then for Honeywell. Six years later, at the age of 28, Wyly was out on his own, creating his first company, University Computing, which offered computer services to local businesses. Over the course of the next 50 years, he founded or grew successful companies in computing, computer software products, oil refining, insurance, steakhouse franchising, arts-and-crafts retailing, hedge fund investing, environmentally friendly electricity, and carbon offsets. In addition to being an entrepreneur, Wyly invests his time in educational institutions and has served as a trustee of Southern Methodist University, as vice chairman of the Princeton Parents Association, and on the board of PBS. One of Wyly¿s proudest endeavors was providing the start-up capital for the Dallas PBS station to create a high-quality news program in 1968. The show was called Newsroom, which evolved into what¿s known today as NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, one of the most trusted news sources for millions nationwide. Over his storied career, Wyly has received many accolades and awards. Forbes named him one of its 10 greenest billionaires in 2010. In 2003, Wyly received the Murphy Award for Lifetime A.

About this Item: Murietta Valley Chamber of Commerce, Murrieta, 1985. Paperback. First Impression. Demy table, [27.75cm/11in], paperbound with pictorial covers, unpaginated. Fully illustrated with b-w halftones. Please feel free to inquire as to particulars and/or additional photographs. . On July 17, 1873, Domingo Pujol, Francisco Sanjurjo, and Juan and Ezequiel Murrieta purchased the Rancho Pauba and Rancho Temecula Mexican land grants, comprising 52,000 acres in the area. Ezequiel returned to Spain and turned the land over to his younger brother, Juan Murrieta (1844–1936), who brought 7,000 sheep to the valley in 1873, using the meadows to feed his sheep. The partnership dissolved in 1876 and Ezequiel and Juan Murrieta retained 15,000 acres of the northern half of the Temecula Rancho. Ezequiel and Juan Murrieta granted a right-of-way, one-hundred-feet wide to the California Southern Railroad through the Temecula Rancho on April 28, 1882 so that the railroad could be constructed through the valley. In 1884, the Temecula Land and Water Company purchased about 14,500 acres from Juan Murrieta and mapped a town site along the California Southern Railroad. Others discovered the valley after the construction of a depot in 1887 that connected Murrieta to the Southern California Railroad's transcontinental route. By 1890 some 800 people lived in Murrieta. Today much of the site (about 50 acres) is home to a Bible college and conference center, owned by Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, which has invested millions of dollars into restoring and rebuilding the old resort rooms. When the trains stopped in 1935, tourists – the lifeblood of the town – were much harder to come by. The boom that Murrieta had experienced due to the train and the hot springs gradually died, leaving Murrieta as a small country town. In exceptionally good condition. Paperback. (5387) $20.00 In exceptionally good condition. Seller Inventory # 27272

About this Item: National Gallery of Art; Wadsworth Atheneum, Washington D.C. and Hartford, CT, 2000. Paperback. Condition: Fine. 1st. 179 pp., illus. (some col.), maps, bib. notes, index; 31 cm. Catalogue of an exhibition held at the National Gallery of Art, May 28 to August 20, 2000 and at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, September 6 to December 3, 2000. Firm binding, clean inside copy. First paperback edition. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. Richly illustrated with colour plates. "A small, unspoiled town on the outskirts of Paris, Argenteuil became a hub of artistic activity during one of the most exciting periods in art history--the decade of the 1870s, when true impressionism was born. Drawn to Argenteuil in search of new inspiration, Claude Monet settled there in 1871. The beauty of the town and its proximity to Paris, along with the amiable presence of Monet himself, soon attracted other artists who found there the inspiration to create some of the most lyrical, dazzling, and progressive paintings of the day. This richly illustrated book explores the responses to Argenteuil of six influential painters in more than fifty of their works. With scenic vistas still unmarred by urban industrialization, Argenteuil in the 1870s was ideally suited to the experiments in plein-air effects that became the hallmark of classic impressionist works. Paul Hayes Tucker describes the lively artistic exchange that developed among Monet, Eugène Boudin, Gustave Caillebotte, Édouard Manet, Auguste Renoir, and Alfred Sisley as they worked, often side by side, in and around the town. At Argenteuil, Tucker shows, the artists’ fascination with atmospheric effects, depictions of modern life, and dialogue with one another coalesced to produce a unique and revolutionary body of work. / Paul Hayes Tucker is professor of art at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. He is the author of Claude Monet: Life and Art, Monet at Argenteuil, Monet in the 90s, and Monet in the Twentieth Century." - Publisher. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Exhibition Catalogue.

About this Item: [München] : List Verlag, 2003. Taschenbuch. Kartoniert. Condition: Wie neu. Deutsche Erstausgabe.. 351 (1) Seiten. 19 cm. Umschlag: Stefan Hilden. Sehr guter Zustand. Frisches Exemplar. Wie ungelesen. Michael und Miriam, Polly und Adrian entdecken entzückt das andere und das eigene Geschlecht ? und dies alles mit einem katholisch-schlechten Gewissen! - David John Lodge CBE, (born 28 January 1935 at Brockley, London, England) is an English author. In his novels, Lodge often satirises academia in general and the humanities in particular. He was brought up Catholic and has described himself as an "agnostic Catholic". Many of his characters are Catholic and their Catholicism is a major theme. . BiographyLodge's first published novel The Picturegoers (1960) draws on his early experiences in 'Brickley' (based on Brockley in S E London) , which are also described in his novel Therapy. World War II forced Lodge and his mother to evacuate to Surrey and Cornwall.[1] Lodge studied at University College London, obtaining a BA (with honours) in 1955. In 1959 he married Mary Frances Jacob and received an MA from UCL. He went on to obtain a PhD at the University of Birmingham, and taught English literature there from 1960 until 1987, being particularly noted for his lectures on Victorian fiction. From 1964-5 he was Harkness Fellow in the United States[1]. He retired from his post at Birmingham in 1987 to become a full-time writer, but retains the title of Honorary Professor of Modern English Literature at the University and continues to live in Birmingham. His papers are housed in the University of Birmingham Library's Special Collections. Apart from his frequent themes of academia and Roman Catholicism, Lodge's works tend to feature the same fictional locales. The town of "Rummidge", modelled after Birmingham (UK), and the equally imaginary US state of "Euphoria", situated between the states of "North California" and "South California" feature prominently. Euphoria's State University is located in the city of "Plotinus", a thinly disguised version of Berkeley, California. Several of his novels, including Small World (1984), and Nice Work (1989), have been adapted as television series, the latter by Lodge himself. Nice Work was filmed at the University of Birmingham. In 1994 Lodge adapted Dickens' Martin Chuzzlewit for the BBC. In 1997 David Lodge was made a Chevalier dans l'Ordre des Arts et Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture, and in the 1998 New Years Honours list, he was appointed CBE for his services to literature. Two of Lodge's novels have been shortlisted for the Booker Prize and in 1989 Lodge was himself chairman of the Booker Prize judges. .

About this Item: Jackson, California: M-F Sales, 1949., 1949. First edition - First printing. A small booklet listing in alphabetical order all of the heads of households and businesses in Jackson, California in 1949. Inside the front cover is the information that the data in this directory was taken from the official map of the streets and numbers recently adopted by the City of Jackson. While Jackson is the county seat of Amador and the largest city in the region, it was still very much a small town then (and now). In 1949 all of the gold mines had been shut down, and the tourism boom had not yet begun. However, looking just at the last page it is interesting to see the variety of names from the English Winterbottom to the Basque Ybarra, the Chinese Yow and Yep and the Italian Zuccone. 28 pp in stiff tan stapled wrappers. Includes a double page street map, a list of local organizations with meeting places and dates, the US mail arrival and departure schedule and the location of all the fire alarm boxes. Advertisements of local businesses. Fine condition. Seller Inventory # 33372

This clean and bright copy appears unread. ; Texas Heritage Series; 0.71 x 7.09 x 5.28 Inches; 128 pages; The thirty-three stories in this collection touch on changes that affected not only residents of small towns, but virtually all Americans, in the '50s and '60s--changes in race relations, family mobility, music, cars, sports, religion, politics, technology, even food. Set in a small town in Southeast Texas Sour Lake (population 1,600)--the essays engage memories of simpler times and explore what may be of lasting value from that era. Stories deal with such varied topics as blue jeans, pizza, communism, the first Volkswagen in town, visiting the Queen of England, the Kennedy assassination, growing up in a segregated world, wet-dry elections, the influence of a one-armed coach, and why so many people in small towns are called by their first and middle names, like Linda Sue, Bobby Joe, and Carl Wayne.

About this Item: Harper & Brothers Publishers- for Council on Foreign Relations, New York and London, 1946. Hard Back. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Edition Stated. 140 Pages. Black boards with gold spine lettering and gold cover decoration. Very light bump to front bottom corner and two very small dents to back cover edges. Dust jacket has light chipping to edges, 3/8 inch piece missing at bottom, and small light black stain at bottom. Jacket price 1.50 is present. On Sunday, May 13, 1943, as Pastor de Pury, dressed in his pastor's robe, prepared to lead mass for the large congregation, two men in civilian attire burst in. They seized Pury, forced him into a car, and sped away. His wife Jacqueline, Cardinal Gerlier, and the chairman of the Protestant Federation, Pastor Marc Boegner, attempted vainly to persuade the Gestapo to release him. On October 28, 1943, in the town of Bregenz, Austria, Pastor de Pury was turned over to local authorities and exchanged for German spies who had been arrested in Switzerland. After the liberation, he returned to Lyons. This book is the journal of Pastor DePury while he was in prison. Paul Geren in his introduction, recalling the ordeal of Pastor DePury, thrown into Fort Montluc prison by the Nazis writes this. He helps us find ourselves. He writes with more poetry and prophecy than we can muster. And so this book speaks for that dead and voiceless multitude - resistance leaders, prisoners of war, political and religious exiles who suffered similarly. And more--his discoveries in prison are relevant to us free men, for every sensitive person is in the struggle between hope and despair, continues the Introduction. Size: 5 1/4" x 7 3/4".
