SEASONS IN FLIGHT, Aldiss, Brian
41 Aldiss, Brian SEASONS IN FLIGHT
Ace 1988 0441757049 / 9780441757046 First Edition Softcover Very Good+ 
Very nice condition, other than a small hole punch upper corner of cover, otherwise clean & unmarked, with only light edgewear to cover. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; "....Aldiss offers a short book of enigmatic fables. Many of these describe a conflict or friction between two cultures, classes or towns that ends in fruitless strife or mutual consternation. The moral message of conciliation and understanding is repeatedly undercut by the sad reminder of selfish human nature. Only one entry breaks free from this limited format: "The Girl Who Sang," which is alone here in creating characters and a specific, evocative background (it is set in the world of the Helliconia novels). " " [90-osl]

The idea is exemplified in Thomas Mann's Death in Venice and in the works of over 40 writers examined here, from the German art historian Windelmann to Lord Byron and E. M. Forster, and many artists and photographers....." [503]

Against the backdrop of an exquisite landscape that ranges from desert scrub land to the savanna, the mountains, and rainforests, their extraordinary images feature the hunters, grazers, waterbirds, and strange menagerie of Madagascar’s isolated forgotten Eden. This exciting volume features up-close images of fearsome lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas; the gentle grazers such as wildebeests, zebras, deer, gazelles, and giraffes; the giant “untouchables” such as elephants, rhinos, and cape buffalos; as well as birds from flamingoes to vultures, water animals such as hippos and crocodiles, and of course the chimps and great apes. Animals of Africa brings its wonder to the armchair traveler in dozens of striking images. These powerful photographs will deepen your appreciation of the natural world, of the fragility and balance of life, and also bring to light how imperative it is to preserve these African animals and the wildernesses in which they live.

PROUD SPIRIT Lessons, Insights & Healing from the Voice of the Spirit World, Altea, Rosemary
59 Altea, Rosemary PROUD SPIRIT Lessons, Insights & Healing from the Voice of the Spirit World
William Morrow 1997 0688149987 / 9780688149987 First Edition Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Excellent condition, only very light wear overall, clean and unmarked. ; 8vo; Cover differs somewhat from stock photo. In her follow-up to The Eagle and the Rose, spiritual medium Rosemary Altea takes the reader farther along the path of her personal cosmology. In Proud Spirit a more sophisticated, mature Altea emerges, answering the questions that logically arise after reading her first book. Proud Spirit begins with a chapter entitled "What happens when we die" and explains how the living affect the dead's happiness and well-being. Do we reincarnate? Only if we choose, she assures us. Do souls heal emotionally and spiritually after they die? Some may, some may not, but Altea consoles the reader in dozens of tenderly compassionate stories about the lives and deaths of real people. If you enjoyed The Eagle and the Rose, you'll love traveling around the globe with the undaunted medium in Proud Spirit, mending the broken hearts of people she meets--living and dead--and sharing the insights and processes that helped heal her own grievous wounds.
