ATHENAEUS
The Learned Banqueters, 8 Volumes.
. Edited and translated by S. Douglas Olson, 2007-2012, ( Loeb Classical Library volumes 204, 208, 224,235, 274, 327, 345, 519 ) In The Learned Banqueters, Athenaeus describes a series of dinner parties at which the guests quote extensively from Greek literature. The work (which dates to the very end of the second century CE) is amusing reading and of extraordinary value as a treasury of quotations from works now lost. Athenaeus also preserves a wide range of information about different cuisines and foodstuffs; the music and entertainments that ornamented banquets; and the intellectual talk that was the heart of Greek conviviality. S. Douglas Olson has undertaken to produce a complete new edition of the work, replacing the previous seven-volume Loeb Athenaeus (published under the title Deipnosophists). Volume I: Books 1-3.106e, 624pp. Volume II: Books 3.106e-5,, 592pp. Volume III: Books 6-7, 592pp. Volume IV: Books 8-10.420e , 512pp. Volume V: Books 10.420e-11, 528pp. Volume VI,Books 12-13.594b, 464pp. Volume VII, Books 13.594b-14,416pp. Volume VIII, Book 15. General Indexes, 400pp. new set.

BICHEVSKAYA, JEANNE,
Poet Pesni Bulata Okudzhavy / Sings Bulat Okujava's Songs
. 33 Phono record/stereo record, Melodiya, 1985, the titles of the songs are on the back of the sleeve in Russian and English.
¶ Zhanna Vladimirovna Bichevskaya (or Jeanne Bichevskaya, born 1944), is a prominent Soviet and Russian singer and folk musician. She was born in Moscow and in 1971 she graduated from the Moscow Circus and Performing Arts School. She was teacher of music in Zagorsk (Sergiev Posad). In the 1970s, Zhanna started to perform Russian folk songs and romances. At that time she was deeply influenced by Bulat Okudzhava, and she quickly gained popularity in Russia and abroad with some critics dubbing her the Russian Joan Baez. Her unique style of music is often described as Russian country-folk. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Zhanna Bichevskaya's songs started to have more political, nationalist and spiritual themes. She performed a series of White Guard officer's songs, as well as a series of religious songs. The lyrics to the latter were composed by Father Roman, a priest of the Pskovo-Pechorsky Monastery. In 1999, Zhanna also became the host of her own show on Voice of Russia radio station.

KIPLING, RUDYARD,
The Absent-Minded Beggar
. A poem ( famously set to music by Sir Arthur Sullivan) . The song was written as part of an appeal by the Daily Mail to raise money for soldiers fighting in the South African War (sometimes known as the Boer War) and their families. The fund was the first such charitable effort for a war. The chorus of the song exhorted its audience to "pass the hat for your credit's sake, and pay- pay- pay!" The patriotic poem and song caused a sensation and was constantly performed throughout the war and beyond. Kipling was offered a knighthood shortly after publication of the poem but declined the honour. Vast numbers of copies of the poem and sheet music were published, and large quantities of merchandise were sold to aid the charity. The "Absent Minded Beggar Fund" raised a total of about GBP 250,000. 1899, 318 x 230 mm. The text is printed in green, portrait of Kipling in sepia on the the front cover = Caton Woodville"s illustrations of "A Gentleman in Khaki",FIRST EDITION. WITH Kipling's speech: Indictment of the government, the famous speech at Tunbridge Wells on May 16th, 1913 also published by the Daily Express, 4 A-4 pages.

MONTUCLA, J.F., [JEAN ETIENNE, 1725 - 1799)
Histoire Des Mathématiques Dans Laquelle on Rend Compte de Leurs Progrès Depuis Leur Origine Jusqu'à Nos Jours ; Où L'on Expose le Tableau Et le Développement Des Principales Découvertes Dans Toutes Les Parties Des Mathématiques, 4 Volumes , Complete Set
. les contestations qui se sont élevées entre les mathématiciens et les principaux traits de la vie des plus célèbres. Nouvelle édition considérablement augmentée et prolongée jusque vers l'époque actuelle? P. Agasse, An VII/An X; [1799 - 1802 ] 4 volumes in 4, Volume I [2], 8pp. 739pp. 12 folding plates, Volume II (2), 718pp. 14 folding plates Volume III 1 portrait (Montucla), [2], VIII, 832pp. 17 folding plates, volume IV Portrait La Lande[2], 688pp. 2 folding plates, ` Montucla's friends persuaded him to work on a new edition of his famous Histoire des mathématiques.(2 volumes, 1758 ) In August 1799 Montucla published new editions through Agasse in Paris of the two volumes originally published in 1758. Montucla extensively revised and enlarged the two volumes. He had intended to extend his cover of history to the end of the 18th century and part of the third volume on this topic was printed by the time he died, four months after the publication of the new editions of 1799. Lalande, with the help of some other scientists, completed volumes three and four to give the coverage that Montucla had intended. Volume three covered 18th century pure mathematics, optics and mechanics in 832 pages, while the fourth volume covered 18th century astronomy, mathematical geography and navigation. - "Montucla's major work, the first classical history of mathematics, was a comprehensive and, relative to the state of contemporary scholarship, accurate description of the development of the subject in various countries. The account also included mechanics, astronomy, optics and music which were then considered subdivisions of mathematics. The first volume covers the beginnings, the Greeks (including the Byzantines) and the West until the start of the seventeenth century ; the second volume is devoted entirely to the latter century. Montucla originally planned to take his work up to the middle of the eighteenth century in a third volume but could not do so, principally because of the abundance of material. In the second edition, extended to cover the whole eighteenth century, he was able to reach this goal. Much remained unfinished, however, since Montucla died during the printing of the third volume. Lalande, his friend from childhood, assisted by others, completed volumes III (pure mathematics, optics, mechanics) and IV (astronomy, mathematical geography, navigation) and published them in 1802". (DSB IX p. 501) Cajori p. 250 - Honeyman N 3284. In a later half calf binding with shagreen covered boards, green and red leather author/title labels on the spines. calf leather corners. Inside hinges re-enforced with linen strips. Copy with large margins, Volume I: Staining in top margins between page 1 and page 133, smaller at first then getting larger and then becoming less again; leaf 425/426 has a small tear, leaf 423/424 browned and has small hole in margin; small hole in 425/426 due to trimming error by printer/binder. Volume II: some wormholes in outer margins pages up to page 60 , leaf 73/74 stained; Volume III has holes in inner margins of pp. 595-622, this volume has an exceptionally clear text. Volume IV: Staining on pp. 221 - 312, all very small in right hand top margins and also on pp. 526 - 659, but again gradually from small stains to larger and then getting smaller again. We can send some images.
