Hardcover Hutchinson & Company: London; 1965; First British Edition 352 pages Very Good in Very Good- dust wrapper 
Spine ends and corners lightly bumped and worn (not to boards). Page edges pale yellow; interior pages clean, no binding problems.

Price clipped dust wrapper edgeworn, a few small chips and short tears, tiny figures in ink on top front flap. ; A retelling of the story of the Three Kings Christmas story.; Recommended by Kristi J. of the AT and DES email discussion groups.

'Melchior had never seen anything like it; the star was so bright, so full of tragedy and glory. He knew at once that it was his task to find the child and warn its parents. But Melchior was old, poor and unwise in the ways of men. Providence took him to the barbarian king, Gaspar, who wanted to know if this great King in the East would be a threat to his empire. It was Balthazar, the escaped slave with a wonderful knowledge of languages, who helped them find their way across hazardous and violent country to Judea.Just as the three men began their journey, a young girl stood bravely before her betrothed husband in Nazareth trying to find the words to tell him that she was pregnant. Not only was the child not his but she had never known a man. How could she make him understand that their destiny was to raise the Christ-child together?

This classic novel weaves together all the characters of the Nativity, from the gentle strength of Mary and the kindness and loyalty of Joseph through the tempestuous journey of the three wisemen and the tragedy of the shepherds to the misery of the the innkeeper and his wife. As the day of the miraculous birth drew closer, all those who were to take part in in the greatest story ever told were given the choice whether to sink beneath their fear or to seek salvation.'

Bid Time Return [Somewhere in Time], MATHESON, Richard
82 7319 MATHESON, Richard Bid Time Return [Somewhere in Time]
Softcover; Mass Market PB Ballentine Books: NY; c1975, 1976; First Paperback Edition 278 pages Good 
Spine and cover creases, edgewear, spine foot reinforced with archival tape. Inside covers and first and last pages faintly dampstained on bottom edge. Front free endpaper removed, pages and inside covers age browned but not brittle. Previous owner initials inside rear cover.; Also published as 'Somewhere in Time', this novel is the basis for the wonderful movie starring Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeve (with a cameo appearance by Richard Matheson). While the movie was filmed on Mackinac Island the novel is set at the lovely Hotel del Coronado in San Diego, California.; 'Bid Time Return is a stunningly romantic novel of love and passion that literally transcends time, by an author far better known for his tales of science fiction and horror. Richard Matheson's premise is captivating: What if you were a dying young man, visiting a turn-of-the-century resort hotel? And what if you fell in love with a painting of a beautiful stage actress--but she had lived and died a century before? But--what if your love was so strong that you could literally will yourself back in time to become part of her world? In the tradition of the classic romantic ghost story "Portrait of Jennie," Matheson makes his two lovers totally believable, and so the undeniably fantastic premise soon becomes completely acceptable.' This book was one of the reasons my husband proposed to me at the 'Hotel del' as he knew that this tale of love and time travel was one of my favourites. Obviously, highly recommended. Image is actual copy on offer.
