I may be half a man, but I swore a whole oath."Prince Yarvi has vowed to regain a throne he never wanted. But first he must survive cruelty, chains, and the bitter waters of the Shattered Sea. And he must do it all with only one good hand.Born a weakling in the eyes of his father, Yarvi is alone in a world where a strong arm and a cold heart rule. He cannot grip a shield or swing an axe, so he must sharpen his mind to a deadly edge.Gathering a strange fellowship of the outcast and the lost, he finds they can do more to help him become the man he needs to be than any court of nobles could.But even with loyal friends at his side, Yarvi finds that his path may end as it began - in twists, and traps, and tragedy.

Mcclelland & Stewart, Toronto, 1977. First edition. Condition: Near fine in very good plus dust jacket. Dust jacket has light edge wear and light bumping at corners, Very light soiling on covers.Signed and inscribed by Purdy, to Bruce Whitman.Al Purdy loved this country and travelled it extensively, by freight train, by airplane, driving a camper and on foot. His paternal line traces back to two brothers who were United Empire Loyalists and left Ulster County in New York in the 1830s to settle in the Belleville, Ontario area. Purdy explored his own heritage and that of Canada in his poetry. Here the same yard-spinning tone is used to explore the country and its people in prose. In other parts of the world, Purdy had felt like a stranger. But wherever he went in Canada, including Frobisher Bay on Baffin Island where the book begins, he always felt at home. No Other Country takes a "long and leisurely gander at Canada and the people who make it what it is..."

Penguin, London, 2003. First trade paperback edition. Condition: Near fine, very light edge amd corner wear.Any Baedeker will tell us where we ought to travel, but only Alain de Botton will tell us how and why. With the same intelligence and insouciant charm he brought to How Proust Can Save Your Life, de Botton considers the pleasures of anticipation; the allure of the exotic, and the value of noticing everything from a seascape in Barbados to the takeoffs at Heathrow.Even as de Botton takes the reader along on his own peregrinations, he also cites such distinguished fellow-travelers as Baudelaire, Wordsworth, Van Gogh, the biologist Alexander von Humboldt, and the 18th-century eccentric Xavier de Maistre, who catalogued the wonders of his bedroom. The Art of Travel is a wise and utterly original book. Don't leave home without it.

Description:
Paragon, New York, 1991. First trade paperback edition. Condition: Very good plus, light edge and corner wear, price sticker on rear cover.From 1935 until his death, Albert Camus kept a series of notebooks to sketch out ideas for future works, record snatches of conversations and excerpts from books he was reading, and jot down his reflections on death and the horror of war, his feelings about women and loneliness and art, and his appreciations for the Algerian sun and sea. These three volumes, now available together for the first time in paperback, include all entries made from the time when Camus was still completely unknown in Europe, until he was killed in an automobile accident in 1960, at the height of his creative powers. In 1957 he had been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. A spiritual and intellectual auto biography, Camus' Notebooks are invariably more concerned with what he felt than with what he did.

Description:
Penguin, London, 1986. 4th paperback printing. Condition: Very good plus, light edge and corner wear, price sticker on rear cover.Meursault will not pretend. After the death of his mother, everyone is shocked when he shows no sadness. And when he commits a random act of violence in Algiers, society is baffled. Why would this seemingly law-abiding bachelor do such a thing? And why does he show no remorse even when it could save his life? His refusal to satisfy the feelings of others only increases his guilt in the eyes of the law. Soon Meursault discovers that he is being tried not simply for his crime, but for his lack of emotion - a reaction that condemns him for being an outsider. For Meursault, this is an insult to his reason and a betrayal of his hopes; for Camus it encapsulates the absurdity of life.

Description:
Vintage V-30, New York, unknown date. Later printing. Condition: Very good minus, light edge and corner wear, price sticker residue on front cover, light sunshadow.By one of the most profoundly influential thinkers of our century, The Rebel is a classic essay on revolution. For Albert Camus, the urge to revolt is one of the "essential dimensions" of human nature, manifested in man's timeless Promethean struggle against the conditions of his existence, as well as the popular uprisings against established orders throughout history. And yet, with an eye toward the French Revolution and its regicides and deicides, he shows how inevitably the course of revolution leads to tyranny, as old regimes throughout the world collapse, The Rebel resonates as an ardent, eloquent, and supremely rational voice of conscience for our tumultuous times.Translated from the French by Anthony Bower and with a foreword by Sir Herbert Read.

Vintage V-75, New York, unknown date. Later printing. Condition: Very good, light edge and corner wear, price sticker residue on front cover, light sunshadow.One of the most influential works of this century, this is a crucial exposition of existentialist thought. Influenced by works such as Don Juan, and the novels of Kafka, these essays begin with a meditation on suicide: the question of living or not living in an absurd universe devoid of order or meaning. With lyric eloquence, Camus posits a way out of despair, reaffirming the value of personal existence, and the possibility of life lived with dignity and authenticity.

Description:
paragon, New York, 1987. First trade paperback edition. Condition: Near fine, very light edge wear, price sticker on rear cover.This text consists of two notebooks that the Nobel laureate kept during a short trip to the U.S. in 1946 and during a longer stay in Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Chile in 1949 during periods of stress and hectic public appearances, when he was tired, nervous, ill and vulnerable. If these journals were not by Camus, they might be regarded as "meaningless bits and pieces" (his own description) that do not merit publication. But as many of these fragments later turned up in his published writings, their major interest stems from the fact that they show how Camus passed from rough notes to a finished work.

Wesleyan University Press, Hanover NH, 1991. Condition: Near fine in near fine dust jacket. Very light edge creases.Essays selected and translated by Alexandre de Gramont, with a forward by Elizabeth Young-Bruehl.From 1943 to 1947, Albert Camus was editor-in-chief of the famous underground and post-Liberation French newspaper Combat. Among his journalist writings during this period were eloquent essays that grappled with questions of revolution, violence, freedom, justice, ethics, and the emerging social order. The 41 pieces collected here - most not previously published in English - tell the story of a sensitive man's odyssey from "hell to reason" at a time of tremendous upheaval while also providing a missing link between Camus' pre-war and post-war works.
