About this Item: Createspace, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Tightly Wound, Loosely Bound: The Memoir Of A Life Bipolar It began without his knowing it, and without his consent. He became a mystery to friends, family, business associates, the world at large, and many times to the police. But never was he a greater mystery to anyone then he was to himself. Tightly Wound, Loosely Bound: The Memoir of a Life Bipolar is the multi-faceted true life memoir of a highly trained professional pharmacist with a mental and psychological disorder that afflicts more than four and a half million men, women and children in America. Add to that their families, friends, employers, caretakers and clinicians, and that number soars to over fifteen million people. It s also one of the least understood, and quickly growing psychiatric dilemmas in our society. With a conversational presentation and compelling content, this book is entertaining and at times quite humorous, yet educational. Its unique format will strike nerves, funny bones, and open - while occasionally moistening - the eyes of anyone who reads it. This book also includes a special Frequently Asked Questions tutorial on bipolar disorder. Seller Inventory # APC9781500923860

Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.3in.- Synopsis - Tightly Wound, Loosely Bound: The Memoir Of A Life Bipolar Occasionally, there comes a life whose journey covers a broad spectrum of the human condition; its a life comedic, tragic, yet compelling. On the playing field, in the classroom and in the business world he appeared to be a success. Internally, however, there churned the inexplicable workings of a mysterious illness.

But never was he a greater mystery to anyone then he was to himself. With a conversational presentation and compelling content, this book is entertaining and at times quite humorous, yet educational.

An album of photographs of British steam: ALEXANDER, P.M. [British

About this Item: A typical caption is '4912 "Berrington Hall" Penzance' but about half of them have added detail, not least the date (all 1935 to 1937). The covers are a little bowed, but essentially the album and its contents are in fine condition. Offered together with a copy of 'The Early Years of Western Region Steam - an Album of P.M. Alexander's Photographs' by P.B. Whitehouse (Wild Swan, 1983). The contents of the album complement nicely the material in the book, which is mainly from 1948 to 1952.

Vie du Capitaine Cook, traduite de l'Anglois: KIPPIS, Andrew.

About this Item: Beddie 37 (other issue); Forbes 169 (other issue); Sabin 37955 4to (issue ambiguous). First French edition of the first biography of James Cook, "which, despite its many disappointing aspects, should be included in any comprehensive collection" (Davidson). The present copy is in the rarer of two simultaneous issues, without the translator's name on the title-page (this issue not recorded in the literature, though in some descriptions the issue remains ambiguous). Kippis first published his biography in London in 1788 as The life of Captain James Cook. Although it contains some significant errors and is primarily concerned with Cook's naval career, it provides a valuable account of his three voyages, remaining the standard biography until Young's Life and voyages of Captain James Cook (1836). IKippis derived his account of Cook's death at Kealakekua Bay from Samwell's Narrative of the death of Captain James Cook (1786). The appendix contains Helen Maria Williams's ode to Tahiti, "the Morai".The present copy is enhanced with two portraits of Cook, engraved soon after the book's publication. With an occasional minor spot and in the second half an unobtrusive small worm hole in the upper outside corner but still in very good condition and with large margins. The binding is rubbed and the corners and spine damaged, with much of the gold tooling on the spine lost. First French edition of the standard early biography of Captain Cook, with 2 portraits extra added. Seller Inventory # GBJCNBRCVLDW

Sketchbooks, and related material.] - Jarrett (Patricia): Batchelor (Roland, Artist)

About this Item: 1982. . The copy of Jarrett's book is Batchelor's own, with his address label at the head of the flyleaf above an affectionate verse inscription from the author. Roland Batchelor is an enduringly popular artist who specialises in a light-hearted and very human portrait of everyday French life. The sketchbooks offer a pleasing insight into the artist's process, with the undated example showing earlier stages of the process as Batchelor explores modes of representing the people he depicts, concentrating most on angle and posture; in the Normandy sketchbook we have examples very close to his finished artwork, albeit with evident traces of his thought and work. The notebook, meanwhile, a post-war issue of the Navy & Air Force Institutes with a note regarding paper shortage to front, contains extensive notes on various techniques as well as on his own work.

About this Item: Cf. Landwehr, Coloured plates 140; Nissen BBI 1388; Stafleu, "F.A.W. Miquel, Netherlands botanist", in: Mededelingen v.h. Botanisch Museum en Herbarium . Utrecht, 220 (1966), pp. 1-95, item 11; Stafleu & Cowan 6088; Wittop Koning, p. 270. Manuscript, apparently by the author, of one of the first printed books on Dutch poisonous plants and one of the earliest works of the eminent botanist Friedrich Miquel, giving detailed descriptions and discussing the toxic properties of nearly 200 species: flowering plants, mushrooms, grasses and berries, including belladonna and some species of nightshade. It covers both indigenous species and foreign species grown in Dutch gardens and for most species gives the Latin, Dutch, French, English, German and sometimes other names, the Linnaean class, a physical description, locations and seasons, medicinal properties and a description of the symptoms of its poisoning. Loosely inserted in the bound manuscript is a second manuscript, probably somewhat later but in what appears to be the same hand. It may therefore be an unpublished pharmacological work by Miquel. After a 3-page introduction ("Pharmacie") follow "Toebereiting der enkelvoudige geneesmiddelen" (Preparation of simple medicines, ll. 1-10, [11]-[12]) and "Droogen en bewaren van geneesmiddelen" (The drying and storing of medicines, ll. [13]-[20]). It includes instructions for the preparation of opium (ll. 5-6).Miquel (1811-1871) took a medical degree at Utrecht and briefly worked as a physician in Amsterdam. He taught medicine at the Rotterdam Klinische School and wrote the present book there. He was appointed professor of botany at the Athenaeum Illustre (Amsterdam) in 1846 and at Utrecht University in 1859, also directing the botanical garden at the latter and in 1862 also taking on the direction of the Royal herbarium in Leiden.With a ca. 1900 library stamp. Ad 2 is very slightly browned but both manuscripts are otherwise in very good condition. The binding is slightly rubbed, but still in good condition. Seller Inventory # JC3HJBB8B6ZA

About this Item: Atlas van Stolk 3182; Brunet I, pp. 194-195; Cohen, col. 28; KVK & WorldCat (3 copies); Muller, Historieplaten 3038-3071. Extremely rare complete emblematic print series (plus alternative versions of several prints) mercilessly satirizing and ridiculing King Louis XIV of France, his grandson King Philip V of Spain, the Marquise de Maintenon (whom Louis XIV had secretly married after she had been his mistress for years), many others in Louis XIV's court and his allies in the War of the Spanish Succession (1700/01-1714). Most prints, like the title-page, have texts in both Dutch and French. The title and many of the prints gleefully note the total eclipse of the sun that occurred on 12 May 1706, supposedly the day Philip V abandoned his siege of Barcelona (which had been taken by the British six months earlier), presenting it as the total eclipse of the Sun King.In 1877 Muller noted the "great rarity" of all these prints, surviving in far fewer numbers than satirical prints of poorer quality and less importance. "Their value as expressions of the spirit and life of the common people is inestimable: indeed, there is almost no period in our history for which we possess such a rich treasure of prints." They also influenced the better known series on the 1720 South Sea Bubble, two of the present prints serving as direct models for prints in that series. The title-page attributes the emblems to "the leading masters of our century" and some of the plates have been attributed to Romeyn de Hooghe and/or someone from his school, Laurens Scherm and the publisher Carel Allard himself.Although no two copies of the print series have the same makeup, and many of the emblems exist in variant forms, the present set of prints includes the engraved title-page, at least one of each of the 19 emblems noted by Muller, and two versions of some, so it may be called "complete". The present copy includes a major variant not recorded by Muller (or elsewhere).With 6 prints loosely inserted, 3 of them with a slightly tattered fore-edge, 1 also with a marginal tear along an old fold repaired with tape, and 1 bound print slightly browned, but still generally in very good condition. The spine of the marbled wrapper is mostly lost and the sides rubbed, with a few small and minor tears and stains, but the binding structure remains sound. One of the best and most extensive copies of an extremely rare and important popular satirical print series from the War of the Spanish Succession. Seller Inventory # I4PCEMH0QKZP
