A collectable is any object regarded as being of interest to a collector (not necessarily monetarily valuable or antique). Another important field of collecting that is also big business is memorabilia, which includes collectables related to a person, organization, event or media, including T-shirts, posters, and numerous other collectables marketed to fans; but also includes ephemera from historical, media, or entertainment events, items that were meant to be thrown away but were saved by fans and accumulated by collectors. There are numerous types of collectables and terms to denote those types. An antique is a collectable that is old. A curio is a small, usually fascinating or unusual item sought after by collectors. The urge to collect unusual and fascinating objects is primeval and not limited to humans. The Renaissance Cabinet of Curiosities… Read more

Guilford, CH: Lyons Press [An Imprint of Globe Pequot Press]. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. [8], 183, [1] pages. Endnotes. Glossary. Index. About the Author. Inscribed by the author to an Ambassador[Huntsman?] on FEP side facing the title page. Charles S. Feddis is a retired CIA officer and author. He spent twenty years undercover in the Near East, South Asia and Southern Europe. He took the first CIA team into Iraq in advance of the 2003 invasion. He retired as head of CIA's WMD terrorism unit. He is the author of six books, three works of non-fiction and three novels. In Beyond Repair, one of the Central Intelligence Agency's most respected former operatives mounts a scathing critique of the preparedness of today's CIA-and, spe­cifically, the Directorate of Operations at its core-to defend America against the dizzying dangers of the twenty-first century. In a compelling blend of analysis and fascinating true-life stories, Charles S. Faddis argues that the CIA has… Read more

Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 2013. Advance Reader's Edition [uncorrected page proofs]. Trade paperback. Good.. xxix, [1], 238 p. Illustrations. Notes. Bibliography. Index. Stephen Fagin begins "Assassination and Commemoration" by retracing the events that culminated in Lee Harvey Oswald's shots at the presidential motorcade. He vividly describes the volatile political climate of midcentury Dallas as well as the shame that haunted the city for decades after the assassination.
