Psychosomatic  (Author Signed), Smith, Anthony Neil
161 Smith, Anthony Neil Psychosomatic (Author Signed)
Point Blank 2006 0809550911 / 9780809550913 First Edition; Various Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket Signed by Author
Signed by Author on Title Page. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. "Because Lydia didn't have arms or legs, she shelled out three thousand bucks to a washed up middleweight named Cap to give her ex-husband the beating of his life." But the beating turns to murder, and the murder into lust and desperation between Lydia and an underworld clean-up man. Meanwhile, overgrown frat boy car thieves take up cop killing as a side hobby. When these paths cross, a horror show of violence unfolds as they all slide into a hell of their own design, surrounded by the neon and noise of the casino strip on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Violent, vivid, life at hyper-speed. This debut novel from the editor of Plots with Guns is a noir nightmare that asks how much is too much in a relationship, and what is the cost of leaving? Ken Bruen calls it "the darkest song I've ever read". May have dust spotting on top edge from shelf storage over time.; 1 x 8.6 x 5.6 Inches; 184 pages; Signed by Author

God the Refuge of His People, from the message by Smith to the S.C. General Assembly, December 7, 1850, Smith, Whitefoord, Rev.
163 Smith, Whitefoord, Rev. God the Refuge of His People, from the message by Smith to the S.C. General Assembly, December 7, 1850
South Carolina House of Representives, South Carolina 1850 1st Edition Thus Manila Folder or Binder Good with No dust jacket as issued 
No cover, text complete, a few pages loose from stitching. This imprint is an original extract from the Message of his Excellency, W.B. Seabrook the Governor of South Carolina in the S.C. Senate Journal, 1850. Gov. Seabrook and other Southern States had been considering the affects of the Northern States actions against the South and the southern movement to "disunion". "One such slight by the U.S. Congress happened in 1841. He proposed that South Carolina receive her share of the proceeds from the sale of public lands as provided for by Act of Congress in 1841 and hitherto declined for constitutional reasons. The governor dwelt at considerable length on the differences between North and South, and the evidence for his conclusion that the South could no longer hope for security of life, or liberty, or property within the Union. He concluded: “The time, then, has come to resume the exercise of the powers of self protection, which in the hour of unsuspecting confidence, we surrendered to foreign hands...... While adhering faithfully to the remedy of joint State action for redress of common grievances, I beseech you to remember, that no conjuncture of events ought to induce us to abandon the right of deciding ultimately on our own destiny.” “ By legislative resolution, Friday, December 6, was designated as a day of fasting and humiliation, on which the clergy of South Carolina should call together their congregations to ask divine guidance for the General Assembly in devising measures conducive to the best interests and welfare of the state. On that day the Reverend Whitefoord Smith conducted religious services and delivered a sermon before the members of the Assembly. The sermon was largely a defense of the institution of slavery." (The Secession Movement in South Carolina, 1847-1852) "Born in Charleston in 1812, Smith he took his name from the family name of his father’s mother. His great-great grandfather, Sir Adam Whitefoord, had been a Scottish baronet, and his great-grandfather, Col. Charles Whitefoord, was an officer in the 5th Regiment of Foot. He attended the city schools in Charleston before moving on to South Carolina College. He was a student in Columbia during the presidency of Thomas Cooper. While at college, he found that he could not accept all of the teachings in the “Shorter Catechism” and left the Presbyterian Church of his ancestors for the Methodist Church. Methodism was, at the time, a denomination of the common people" (.wofford.edu/from_the_archives) This imprint is one of 2000 printed after the S.C. General Assembly meeting where Dr. Smith spoke. Rare. In archival sleeve for preservation. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 16 pages

"Nicolaism (also Nicholaism, Nicolaitism, Nicolationism, or Nicolaitanism) is a Christian heresy first mentioned (twice) in the Book of Revelation of the New Testament, whose adherents were called Nicolaitans, Nicolaitanes, or Nicolaites. According to Revelation 2:6 and 15, they were known in the cities of Ephesus and Pergamum. In this chapter, the church at Ephesus is commended for "[hating] the works of the Nicolaites, which I also hate"; and the church in Pergamos is rebuked: "So thou hast also some [worshiping in their midst] who hold the teaching of the Nicolaites". Several of the early church fathers mentioned this group, including Irenaeus, Hippolytus, Epiphanius, and Theodoret, stating that deacon Nicolas was the author of the heresy and the sect.

Book and dust jacket look new. Dust in protective mylar cover. Signed by Ensign Harlan Twible one of the survivors. "On July 30, 1945, the USS Indianapolis was torpedoed in the South Pacific by a Japanese submarine. An estimated 300 men were killed upon impact; close to 900 sailors were cast into the Pacific Ocean, where they remained undetected by the navy for nearly four days and nights. Battered by a savage sea, they struggled to stay alive, fighting off sharks, hypothermia, and dementia." The definitive account of a little-known chapter in World War II history, In Harm's Way is destined to become a classic tale of war, survival, and extraordinary courage.(Review) In July 1945, Ensign Twible served as a gunnery officer on the USS Indianapolis. The ship had just delivered the atomic bomb and was sailing home when it was attacked by a Japanese submarine. Twible recounted "We were under secret orders, so nobody knew we were hit," "The bow was blown off the ship....Here I was, an Ensign, and I had to give the order to abandon ship," Rare work. ; Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 333 pages; Signed by Notable Personage, Related
