17 Reiche, Maria Geheimnis der Wuste/ Mystery on the Desert/ Secreto de la Pampa Preliminaries for a Scientific Interpretation of the Pre-Historic Ground-Drawings of Nazca, Peru and Introduction to Their Study
Heinrich Fink GmbH 1976 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with No dust jacket as issued Signed by Author
Rare author signed edition dated 1978. This book reflects the preliminaries for a scientific interpretation of the pre-historic ground drawings of Nazca, Peru and introduction to thier study. Maria Reiche (15 May 1903 – 8 June 1998) was a German-born Peruvian mathematician, archaeologist, and technical translator. She is known for her research into the Nazca Lines, which she discovered together with American historian Paul Kosok in 1940. Known as the "Lady of the Lines", Reiche made the documentation, preservation and public dissemination of the Nazca Lines her life's work. In 1932, she began work as a nanny and governess for the children of the German consul in Cusco, Peru. In 1934, while still in Cusco, she accidentally stabbed herself with a cactus and lost a finger to gangrene. In 1939, she became a teacher in Lima and worked on scientific translations. When World War II broke out that year, Maria stayed in Peru and discovered the lines and figures of Nazca while she was flying over the Nazca desert.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 92 pages; Signed by Author

The Evolution-Creation Struggle, Ruse, Michael
19 Ruse, Michael The Evolution-Creation Struggle
Harvard University Press 2005 0674016874 / 9780674016873 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Looks new. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover.Creation versus evolution: What seems like a cultural crisis of our day, played out in courtrooms and classrooms across the county, is in fact part of a larger story reaching back through the centuries. The views of both evolutionists and creationists originated as inventions of the Enlightenment--two opposed but closely related responses to a loss of religious faith in the Western world.

In his latest book, Michael Ruse, a preeminent authority on Darwinian evolutionary thought and a leading participant in the ongoing debate, uncovers surprising similarities between evolutionist and creationist thinking. Exploring the underlying philosophical commitments of evolutionists, he reveals that those most hostile to religion are just as evangelical as their fundamentalist opponents. But more crucially, and reaching beyond the biblical issues at stake, he demonstrates that these two diametrically opposed ideologies have, since the Enlightenment, engaged in a struggle for the privilege of defining human origins, moral values, and the nature of reality.

Highlighting modern-day partisans as divergent as Richard Dawkins and Left Behind authors Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, Ruse's bracing book takes on the assumptions of controversialists of every stripe and belief and offers to all a new and productive way of understanding this unifying, if often bitter, quest. ; 1.2 x 8.4 x 5.8 Inches; 336 pages
