881 5972 TROLLOPE, Joanna Passionate Man, A
Paperback; Trade PB Berkley Books: NY; c1990,2000; Reprint Very Good+  
295 pages; No spine or cover creases, very light edgewear. A very nice copy.; 'The Logans were an enchanting and admirable couple. Archie had snatched Liza from her own engagement party to someone else, wooed her, swept her off to his father in Scotland, and finally married her. Now bedded firmly into country life - three children, Archie the village doctor, Liza a teacher, everything comfortable, funny, affectionate - they awaited the arrival of Archie's father, the brilliant Sir Andrew Logan, a widower for over thirty years.

When his city-clean Rover stopped in the drive, Sir Andrew was not alone. Beside him was a golden lady in caramel suede, a warm, witty, desirable widow whom everyone - except Archie - adored at once. Archie saw his father's mistress as the worm in the bud of his perfect life - a life that was to be wrenched apart before he and Liza could re-create their world.'

Hardcover Viking: NY; 2004; First US Edition 333 pages Very Good+ in Near Fine dust wrapper 
A lovely book. Faintly bumped spine ends and corners. Unclipped dust wrapper has faintest edgewear.; 'It was Emily Carr (1871-1945)—not Georgia O'Keeffe or Frida Kahlo—who first blazed a path for modern women artists, according to this novelized biography. Carr's boldly original landscapes are praised today for capturing an untamed British Columbia and its indigenous peoples just before industrialization would change them forever. Susan Vreeland brings to life this fiercely independent and underappreciated figure. From illegal potlatches in tribal communities to the gaiety of prewar Paris, Carr's story is arresting and vibrant, and Vreeland tells it with gusto and suspense.'

' This novel was recently selected by 'Time Magazine' as one of the one hundred best English-language novels written from 1923 to the present.; "This is my favorite novel, second only to The Diary of the Provincial Lady," writes Holly H. of the ATS and AT and DES discussion groups. "I can't help but love the narrator Charles Ryder and the members of theMarchmain family. Charles is the quintessential looker-on who faithfully records a glorious lost past and grace that was England before World War II, as personified by the Marchmain family, in particular. This is the story of his love for two of the wealthy Catholic children, the innocent yet dissolute Lord Sebastian and the ultimately disconsolate Lady Julia. They are surrounded by memorable characters of the first order. One of the greatest literary pleasures of my life is discovering this gem of a novel and re-reading it on an annual basis. I highly recommend it to you."

902 3835 WEINTRAUB, Stanley Edward the Caresser : The Playboy Prince Who Became Edward VII
Hardcover Free Press: NY; 2001; First US Edition Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust wrapper  
429 pages; A new book with a bumped spine foot and bottom corners. Dust wrapper is faintly rubbed and edgeworn.; ' In each of the past three centuries, a Prince of Wales has waited most of his life to become King. Each one disappointed his reigning parent, had an unhappy marriage, and conducted scandalous affairs. But only one gave his name to an age: the future Edward VII, Albert Edward, eldest son of Queen Victoria.

Drawing on previously unavailable, little-used or unknown diaries, letters, memoirs, and reportage from both sides of the Atlantic the author depicts the Prince and his worlds: his frustrating childhood, his introductions to gentlemanly sins at Oxford and Cambridge, his chilly marriage, and his constant escapes to balls, races, spas, and country houses, where he gambled, gourmandized, caroused, and whored. His string of "god-children" included some almost certainly his own. Yet despite, or because of, his flaws, "Bertie" was loved wherever he went. He was a natural diplomat, able to charm strangers and dance all night. When he toured the United States in 1860, he was a media sensation, and there was even talk of a marriage with President Buchanan's niece. His story is a picture of tragedy and farce—qualities that fit Edward perfectly for the role of modern monarch.'; Published @$30.00
