St. Martin's, 1967 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Book and dust in very good condition. "This is a collection of firsthand records by forty-two New World archeologists and each selection is preceded by an interpretation as long, at least, as the selection itself. Collectively the introductions and narratives form a cohesive study of American archaeology, an archaeology distinct from that of the Old World with its own heroes and its own specific problems. ""Side by side with the digger of trenches and 'plunderer' of graves there loom the airborne surveyor; the aqua-lunged diver; the meticulous analyst of the physical evidence from bones, plants and ceramics, as well as the anthropological field worker and the desk bound scholar who draws novel conclusions from motley data." Kirkus Review. ; Photographs, illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 647 pages

Jeane Dixon  My Life and Prophecies, Dixon, Jeane & Rene Noorbergen
103 Dixon, Jeane & Rene Noorbergen Jeane Dixon My Life and Prophecies
William Morrow 1969 0688021425 / 9780688021429 First Edition; Various Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket Signed by Author
White and blue cover, no dust or slipcase. Signed, "Blessings, Jean Dixon". Book is in Excellent Condition. Jean Dixon was one of the best-known American astrologers and psychics of the 20th century, due to her syndicated newspaper astrology column, and some well-publicized predictions and a best-selling biography. She is best known for allegedly predicting the assassination of President John F. Kennedy four years before he was elected. In the May 13, 1956, issue of Parade Magazine she wrote that the 1960 presidential election would be "dominated by labor and won by a Democrat" who would then go on to "be assassinated or die in office though not necessarily in his first term." Five years later Jeane Dixon was addressing a meeting in the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles when questioned if Robert Kennedy would ever become President. 'No,' she had answered. 'He will never become President of the United States because of a tragedy right here in this hotel.' A week later Robert Kennedy did win the California Democratic primary and he had just finished addressing a victory rally at the Ambassador Hotel's ballroom when he was shot. He died the following day. Also in January 1942 Dixon had warned the Hollywood film actress Carole Lombard (married to Clark Gable at the time) that it would be dangerous for her to travel by plane within the next six weeks. Lombard, scheduled to appear at a War Bond rally did not heed Dixon's warning, she died in an airplane crash within three days of the warning. President Richard Nixon referred to Jean Dixon as "the soothsayer" and ordered preparations for a terrorist attack that Dixon had predicted, of course the prediction did not come true during Nixon's term. She was also one of several astrologers who gave advice to Nancy Reagan during the presidency of Ronald Reagan. She died of cardiac arrest in Washington, D.C. on January 25, 1997, at the age of 93.
