Crankshaw, Edward  
Maria Theresa
 Picture
Publisher: Viking Press, New York, 1970, Copyright date: 1969.
ISBN: 9780670456314 Second Printing Hardcover. Condition: Very Good/Good- Merlot-colored cloth boards with gilt titling on spine. Binding is tight. Interior is unmarked. Full-color pictorial DJ is edgeworn with tiny tears at head of spine. 8vo. "BOOK INFO: When Edward Crankshaw's Maria Theresa was published in 1969, it was the first full length study of Maria Theresa to be written in English for sixty years. Called to the throne in 1740, at the age of twenty-three, Maria Theresa was wholly unprepared. The young queen found herself with a virtually nonexistent army at the head of a bankrupt and disaffected empire - an empire shortly to be set upon by half Europe..her only weapons were her charm, her unbreakable will, and her almost reckless courage. With these, and by her own immense exertions, she first held her powerful enemies at bay; then, choosing new advisers with astonishing skill, and discovering in herself a fund of commonsense amounting almost to genius, she instituted wide-reaching reforms which were to unify the Empire's bewildering mixture of lands and peoples, and bring it to the threshold of the revolutionary age. With all this she remained a wife and a mother - most touchingly so in her vast correspondence with her many children. Her intimate correspondence with her daughter, Marie Antoinette on the eve of the French Revolution is one of history's most touching and revealing sidelights. (--abridged from the endflap and online summary) Illustrated throughout with glossy B&W portrait pages.". Language: English. Pages: 366

Edmonds, David & John Eidinow. [Wittgenstein, Ludwig] [Popper, Karl]  
Wittgenstein's Poker. The Story of a Ten-Minute Argument Between Two Great Philosophers.

Publisher: HarperCollins [c2001]. "First Edition" [5th printing].
x, [2], 340 p., index, photos; 19 cm. "On October 25, 1946, in a crowded room in Cambridge, England, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Karl Popper came face-to-face for the first and only time. The encounter lasted just ten minutes, and did not go well. ...Almost immediately, rumors spread around the world that the two great philosophers had come to blows, armed with red-hot pokers. Twenty years later, when Popper wrote an account of the incident, he portrayed himself as the victor, provoking intense disagreement. Everyone present seems to have remembered events differently. ..."Wittgenstein's Poker" is an engaging mix of philosophy, history, biography, and literary detection. David Edmonds and John Eidinow evoke with dazzling clarity the tumult of fin-de-siècle Vienna, Wittgenstein's and Popper's birthplace; the tragedy of the Nazi takeover of Austria; and Cambridge University, with its eccentric set of philosophy dons, including Bertrand Russell, who acted as umpire at the meeting. At the center of the story stand the two philosophers themselves-- proud, irascible, larger-than-life-- and spoiling for a fight." Pictorial dj; VG+. 38616.
