Crile, Jane and Barney  
More Than Booty
 Picture
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Publishing Company, Inc., 1965 New York.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good to Very Good. Hardcover Signed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall SIGNED by Barney Crile on front endpaper! First edition (stated). "'Jane and I always were interested in everything living. Both of us had been brought up in close touch with nature..We had the same strong love for it.' So begins this deeply moving account of a life of love and a love of life which Dr. Crile, his wife Jane, and their four children shared with every living creature they encountered. They enjoyed the celebration of life in all its forms, focusing equal attention on the rabbits, ducks, and geese in their back yard, on the mice in Dr. Crile's laboratory, on moose in Canada, bandits in Corsica, Bedouins in Jordan, and on the wonderful assortment of people they met in their far-ranging travels to Crete, Thailand, Caribbean islands and lonely ocean reefs. Underlying the Criles' adventures was a philosophy of life based on naturalistic observations. They believed that 'the strongest single factor in the creation of love' was imprintation..the young animal's acceptance, as its mother, of whatever creature it happened to be with during a critical period of early life. They thought that, in man too, the acceptance of customs, the love of places, and the development of beliefs were based largely on the same principle and related to experiences encountered early in life. The Criles roamed far and wide, ever curious, always together, living their marriage fully and richly. At the end of their journeys they chose for the title of their book a quotation from the Koran: 'We had traveled far and wide in the lands under the sun until coming home satisfied us more than booty.' Jane Crile died in 1963, leaving Dr. Crile to finish the book alone. More Than Booty is not only a tale of adventure in distant lands, but also an intimate record of how life can be lived to its fullest in the face of impending death." xi + 188 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD to NEAR FINE condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD to VERY GOOD condition; some aging, but otherwise in very good or better condition; no edgewear.

Knox, James:  
Robert Byron

Publisher: London, John Murray (Publishers), 2003. (1st Edition).
xvi + 493pp with map and 61 b/w archive photo illus. Signed by the author to title page "James Knox, Byronic Salutations". James Knox was for 10 years "publisher" of The Spectator ; this biography was completed only after many years painstaking research. "Robert Byron, who died young in the War (WWII), was the foremost travel writer of his age, acclaimed especially for 'The Road to Oxiana'. He was also a pioneer of Byzantine history, fought to save Georgian London, and was one of the first voices raised against fascism. Patrick Leigh Fermor readily admitted to being under his spell, and to Nancy Mitford he was the funniest man alive. This is the first biography of him ; it draws on his unique archive and throws fascinating new light on the gilded circle of which he was part. Byron found his voice at Eton the early 1920's, sparring with Harold Acton and Brian Howard, Anthony Powell and Henry Green, and at Oxford where he was one of the gilded set immortalized by Evelyn Waugh. A life of travel followed ; it took him to the monastic republic of Mount Athos, to Lutyen's New Delhi, to the theocracy of Tibet. It was in Persia and Afghanistan that he forged the style of travel writing that remains dominant today. Clever and sensitive, he adored rows as much as gossip but nonetheless was irresistible to friends and rivals alike - not only the Mitfords but for instance John Betjeman, the Sitwells, and his editor Harold Macmillan. When the ship carrying him to Cairo was torpedoed, days before his 36th birthday in 1941, his friends mourned the loss of one of the brightest stars of their generation." Published at £25.00 ( "The Road to Oxiana" is scheduled for republication in the UK by Little Books in July 2007). Fine cond : fine cond d/w, not price clipped. 9 x 6 inches
