Boards chipped at head and tail of spine panel, splits along outer. hinges repaired, else a very good copy of a book with a very fragile. binding. (#78601). First edition. "A mixed collection of twelve stories. 'Seven Devils' explores necromancy, ghosts, devil-worship and madness in the wolds of Essex. 'Ernest' is about a religious fanatic who preaches a kind of Christian heresy, baptizing his followers in blood and carving a cross in their foreheads, while exhibiting (temporarily) the stigmata himself. Is he an impostor? A madman? A true saint? He goes to Japan and is crucified. 'The Secret Valley' concerns premonitions and a woman committed to an asylum who may or may not be mad, and death. 'The Legend of the Green Lady' and 'The Wandering Jew' are permeated with allusions to the legendary. 'Judgment Eve' ends with a brief posthumous fantasy. Throughout these stories one finds hysterical women and tortured men, reeling from the disillusionment of the war, and madness and death and a faint perfume of the fantastic. Literary fiction with a careful, densely layered style." - Robert Eldridge. Reginald 06890. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978)., London: Constable & Co., Ltd., 1924, Hesperides Press. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 148 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.6in. x 0.7in.Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.

PREFATORY NOTE TO SECONDEDITION: THE better to Illustrate how, in Hindoo mythology, the ideas of a beautiful woman, the Moon, and the Seagtdissolve and disappear into one another, I have placedon the fly-leaf of this edition a single stanza, drawnfrom another part of my MS. , which characteristically. exemplifies that dissolving mew: subjoining here, fordie benefit of the uninitiated, a literal translation : O thou lovely Incarnation of the Nectar-droppingMoon come down from Heaven to lighten our Dark-ness : Delight of the Race of Man retaining in thyWomanhood the dancing Play of the Waves of that Seaof Milk out of which thou wert originally churned bythe Gods: we the Three Worlds of Childhood Man-hood) and Age) do worship the Orb of thy Bosom thatpossesses for us a Threefold Mystical Feminine Energy: being a Pitcher of Milk for us when we are Born : The last lines contain recondite philosophical allusions tothe Creation, Preservation, and Destruction of the World, andother matters, in technical terms which defy translation. Lifein Hindoo philosophy, as in that of the Middle Ages, carriesabout with it a perfume of death: there is in its atmospheresomething melancholy, and even a little morbid, like the slowtoiling of a bell. the Middle of the Path of Life: anda Shrine in which we take refuge to die at the last. But we lose, la a literal prose version, the reverbera-tion, and the echo of the Sea, which undertones themeaning of the words like the accompaniment to a song. This sound we might make some attempt to preserve, without doing violence to the sense, as followsLike a New Moons exquisite Incarnation, , In the Ebb and Flow of a Surging SeaWave-breasted Beauty, the whole CreationWanes, and waxes, and rocks on thee IFor we rise and fall on thy Bosoms BillowWhose heavimg Swell is our Home DivineOur Chalice at Dawn and our hot Noons Pillow, Our Evenings Shrine. PREFACE TO FIRST EDITION: A DIGIT OF THE MOON is the sixteenth part of a muchlonger work, entitled The Churning of the Ocean ofTime A well-known Hindoo legend recounts how thegods and antigods assembled to churn the ocean of milk bfor the nectar of immortality. After throwing in herbsofvarious kinds, they churned it with Mount Mandara, andobtained the nectar, with certain other things, one ofwhich was the MOON, who by the way is often called the Lord of Herbs. But in Sanskrit, the Moon, like the Sun, is a male. Hindoo poets get over this difficulty, when they want afemale Moon, by personifying his attributes, or makinga part do duty for the whole. Thus, his disc is dividedinto sixteen parts, called streaks or digits and abeautiful woman is a digit of the moon Sansampra-sdgara-manthanam For milk the author has substituted a technical word whichmeans the world considered as the scene of never-ending transmigrations. (0 world! O life! O time!) By this he impliesthat the nectar of his work is the residuum of much churningof life and experience of the world, and that it is destinedto be immortal.

Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.1in. x 0.9in.In perhaps the most creative and authoritative book on sensory branding ever written, international business legend Martin Lindstrom reveals what the worlds most successful branding companies do differently -- integrating touch, taste, smell, sight, and sound -- with startling and measurable results. Based on the largest study ever conducted on how our five senses affect the creation of brands, BRAND sense explains Martin Lindstroms innovative six-step program for bringing brand building into the twenty-first century. The study, covering over a dozen countries worldwide, was conducted exclusively for this book by Millward Brown, one of the largest business research institutions in the world. Drawing on countless examples of both product creation and retail experience, Lindstrom shows how to establish a marketing approach that appeals to all the senses, not simply the conventional reliance on sight and sound. Research shows that a full 75 percent of our emotions are in fact generated by what we smell, and the author explains how to capitalize on that insight. Included are innovative tools for evaluating a brands place on the sensory scale, analyzing its future sensory potential, and enhancing its appeal to reach the broadest base of consumers. Lindstrom lists the top twenty brands for the future based on their sensory awareness. (The top three Singapore Airlines, Apple, and Disney. ) Among the books many fascinating factual highlights are the following: That gratifying new-car smell that accompanies the purchase of a new car is actually a factory-installed aerosol can containing new-car aroma. Kelloggs trademarked crunchy sound and feel of eating cornflakes was created in sound labs and patented in the same way that the company owns its recipe and logo. Singapore Airlines has patented a scent that is part of every female flight attendants perfume, as well as blended into the hot towels served before takeoff, and which generally permeates their entire fleet of airplanes. Starbucks sensory uniqueness is far less strongly associated with the smell and taste of coffee than with the interior design of its cafs and its green and white logo. Hailed as the Worlds Brand Futurist by the BBC, Martin Lindstrom is one of the worlds top entrepreneurial visionaries, who has changed the face of global marketing with twenty years of hands-on experience as an advertising CEO and adviser to Fortune 500 companies. Firmly steeped in scientific evidence and featuring sensory secrets of the most successful brand names, BRAND sense reveals how to transform marketing strategies into positive business results that no brand builder can afford to ignore.

Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.1in. x 1.5in.Internationally bestselling novelist and American icon Tom Robbins delivers the long awaited tale of his wild life and times, both at home and around the globe. Tom Robbins warm, wise, and wonderfully weird novelsincluding Still Life With Woodpecker, Jitterbug Perfume, and Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climatesprovide an entryway into the frontier of his singular imagination. Madcap but sincere, pulsating with strong social and philosophical undercurrents, his irreverent classics have introduced countless readers to natural born hitchhiking cowgirls, born-again monkeys, a philosophizing can of beans, exiled royalty, and problematic redheads. In Tibetan Peach Pie, Robbins turns that unparalleled literary sensibility inward, stitching together stories of his unconventional life, from his Appalachian childhood to his globetrotting adventures told in his unique voice that combines the sweet and sly, the spiritual and earthy. The grandchild of Baptist preachers, Robbins would become over the course of half a century a poet-interruptus, an air force weatherman, a radio dj, an art-critic-turned-psychedelic-journeyman, a world-famous novelist, and a counter-culture hero, leading a life as unlikely, magical, and bizarre as those of his quixotic characters. Robbins offers intimate snapshots of Appalachia during the Great Depression, the West Coast during the Sixties psychedelic revolution, international roving before homeland security monitored our travels, and New York publishing when it still relied on trees. Written with the big-hearted comedy and mesmerizing linguistic invention for which he is known, Tibetan Peach Pie is an invitation into the private world of a literary legend.
