The Jazz Bird  (Author Signed), Holden, Craig
29 Holden, Craig The Jazz Bird (Author Signed)
Simon & Schuster 2001 0743212967 / 9780743212960 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket Signed by Author
Author signed. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. An exquisitely written novel of love and betrayal, of money and power, set at the apex of that time of glitz and innocence known as the Jazz Age. CINCINNATI, 1927... Lawyer George Remus became the country's biggest bootlegger, grossing over $80 million until his arrest. Upon his release from prison, he learns that his beautiful wife, Imogene, has left him and that his bank accounts are empty. On the morning of their divorce, he runs her car off the road in the middle of rush hour in Eden Park and shoots her to death. Shocked and fascinated by this horrible crime, the country gears up for a sensational trial pitting the man known as "the king of the bootleggers" against Chief Prosecutor Charlie Taft, the youngest son of the former president. The trial is a national spectacle, a lens focused on the fabulous rise and fall of the Remus empire and the tragic love story within it, and an attempt to answer some tantalizing questions: What actually happened to the fortune? What are the motives of the federal agent who brought Remus down? What complex emotions and desires, leading ultimately to the ruin of three men, really lie within the heart of the woman known as the Jazz Bird? Based on a true story, The Jazz Bird is at once a love story, a crime novel, and the tale of the courtroom battle between two powerful men whose respective futures hang in the balance.; 0.99 x 9.5 x 6.44 Inches; 320 pages; Signed by Author

Spiritual Reconstruction "By the Author of Christ In You", No Author Listed
33 No Author Listed Spiritual Reconstruction "By the Author of Christ In You"
London, England John M. Watkins 1918 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Rare original 1918 edition not a reprint, Blue cloth cover has minor rubs to corners. Contents very clean. Fully indexed. About the publisher "Over a century ago, Watkins, the "University of Rejected Sciences", was born. In April 1897, John M. Watkins issued the first second-hand and remaindered book catalogue in his own name, giving 26 Charing Cross in the centre of London as his business address. Since 1895, perhaps earlier, he had published similar lists on behalf of "The Theosophical Publishing Society', initially from 7/8 Duke Street,' Adelphi, later from Charing Cross and then from "... a shop near the Friends' Meeting House in St. Martin's Lane." These lists had been preceded by Book-notes, which he had edited from March 1893. The premises of this profitable business would shift location from nautical Whitehall to thespian St.Martin’s Lane.John Watkins eventually moved the business to its present famous site in No.21 in Cecil Court in 1901. Two frequent visitors in those very early days were the Irish poet W. B. Yeats, himself a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and G. R. S. Mead, author of numerous works on gnosticism and a prominent figure in the Theosophical Society. J. Watkins himself introduced our famous Egyptian logo that depicts the Great God Thoth, ancient deity of learning, writing, science and magic. He has been affectionately called the "scribe of the gods" by the bookshop' s staff of every epoch, and can be seen today adorning the creaking sign outside – but way back in 1901 the shop had only begun its tradition as a London nexus, a Mecca for occultists and mystics from all over the world - people from all walks of life.The Early Intellectual EnvironmentThe Watkins story starts in the innovative intellectual ferment of Victorian London. For many people the 'Victorian Age' evokes images of steaming industrial and smoky commercial power, iron & funerals, reminiscent of Blake's 'Satanic Mills', moral evangelical conservatism and starch-collared high mindedness although as history begins to peel off the onion layers it seems that it may not all have been as 'moral' and 'high' as some of us were taught at school. The hustle & bustle of the West End in this heyday was that of packed-out multicoloured omnibuses and tipped hats, the ringing cries of the newspaper boys echoing and the scuffling barrow boys of the busy Covent Garden markets rumbling forward the quality market centre of the huge British Empire. The rich mixing scents of soot, horse manure, perfumed blooms of flowers downwind, open bakeries and the gas lamps filled the air.The late 19th century was a time of vigorous questioning of long-held beliefs about the nature of man, his origins and his destiny as well as of the universe, which he inhabited. All these developments were to have a considerable impact on the thinking of many intellectuals preoccupied with spiritual and metaphysical questions.Amidst this intellectual upheaval there arose several organisations putting forward alternative views of man and his spiritual nature. There was an upsurge of interest in the hermetic and kabbalistic traditions, an impulse that lay behind the formation of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Additionally the new interest in the spiritual and metaphysical culture of Asia was to find an outlet in the founding of H.P.Blavatsky's Theosophical Society in America, Britain and India. Thirdly, there was the phenomenon of the appearance of mediumship, and the possibility of establishing the fact of personal survival after death. This last resulted in the establishment of the Society for Psychical Research as well as the growth of the Spiritualist movement.John WatkinsIt is into this concentrated context that we may view the establishment of Watkins Bookshop in the mid 1890's. John Maurice Watkins, the founder of this bookshop, was a friend and disciple of H P. Blavatsky and was himself personally involved in seeing the first edition of The Secret Doctrine, her great metaphysical classic, through the press.The ideal of founding the bookshop is said to have occurred to Mr Watkins in a conversation with Madame Blavatsky in which she lamented the fact that there was nowhere in London one could buy books on mysticism, occultism and metaphysics.This book is protected by an archival quality sleeve to maintain present condition.
