Guber, Rivka  
THE SIGNAL FIRES OF LACHISH
 Picture
Publisher: Herzl Press, NY, 1964.
Good in Poor dust jacket. First Edition. 1. Hard Cover Publisher's full light brown cloth, gilt (brown) lettering on spine. 8vo. 282 pp. Former owner's printed bookplate on fep, gift inscription on ffep, coffee stain on cover and preliminary pages only, else near fine. The price-clipped dust jacket (now in Mylar) is soiled, chipped, and has several closed tears. GOOD/POOR. A pioneer woman's story of the early days of Israel. This second book relates with truth and compassion Israel's struggle in the pioneer days to absorb and integrate the thousands of new immigrants. Written with "extraordinay humanity and vitality".Rivka Guber was born in 1902 to a family of Jewish farmers who for generations had lived in the village of Vilaszashatanovo Witbesc in the Charuson county in the Ukraine. From early childhood she was accustomed to hard work in the fields and the cow shed. Nevertheless, she completed elementary school in the village, and since she showed a promising spark of ability, she was sent to continue her studies at the school in the county's central district of Watrinoslav. There she finished high school and two years of university. She experienced the terror of the Bolshevik revolution when her father, along with all the adults of the village, was recruited into the war and the village was controlled in turn by the various forces which were fighting each other. In 1921 she married Mordechai Guber, a yeshiva graduate and a Hebrew teacher who later became an agricultural instructor in Israel and headed the regional councils of Be'er Tuvia and Lachish. In 1925 they settled in Rehovot where Rivka worked as a teacher. They later left Rehovot in order to help establish Moshav Kfar Bilu. During World War II Rivka left her husband and her small children to join the British Army. In 1939 the Guber family was among the founders of Kfar Warburg a moshav in the south. It was while living there that, in the War of Independence, she lost her two children, Ephraim and Zvi, in whose memory the moshav "Kfar Achim" was named. During those years, Rivka served as an educator and principal at the Achim School in Kiryat Malachi. She dedicated all her energy to immigrant absorption and to the education of olim (new immigrants) living in the Kastina ma'abara or transit camp. During those gray days, the children took refuge in her home. In 1956 the Guber family donated their house and flourishing farm to the Magen Fund, and moved with their daughter, Chaya, to a remote area of the Lachish region where they helped establish a string of moshavim and the city of Qiryat Gat. After the couple retired they lived for two years in Kfar Achim; however due to Mordechai's poor health, they moved to a senior citizen's home in Tel-Aviv. Even towards the end of her life Rivka continued to help those in need. She traveled everywhere, even as far as Dahab near the southern tip of Sinai where a former pupil from the Kastina transit camp had established the settlement of Di Zahav. Riv

THE CONSPIRACY
 Picture
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf, NY, 1972.
As New in Fine dust jacket. Book Club Edition. 1 Hardcover with dust jacket. 8vo (6 x 8.5"). (viii), 274, (6) pp. Publisher's brown cloth, gilt lettering on spine, author's initials, gilt, in gilt frame on cover. Fore-edge deckle. T. E. G. (red). This is a new, unopened copy in pristine condition. AS NEW/FINE. Nero's secret police believe they have come upon the first hints of a plot against the emperor's life. Once promising and gifted, the friend of poets and a pupil of the great Seneca, Nero has now bloodied himself and grown fat on power. He has turned his back on the men of intellect who used to be his chosen circle of friends and confidants. He has driven Seneca into retirement. He has banned the writings of Lucan, Rome's foremost poet. Crass, mediocre men, the military and the secret police, now have his ear and favor. While the emperor and his court give themselves over to the pursuit of pleasure, the secret police close in on, or perhaps foment or imagine, a conspiracy among the men of letters. The text of this book is set in Electra, a typeface designed by W. A. Dwiggins for the Mergenthaler Linotype Company and first made available in 1935. The book was composed, printed and bound by The Haddon Craftsmen, Scranton, PA. Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Hersey is also the author of A Bell for Adano, The Wall, Too Far to Walk and many other novels. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 275 pp

THE FIRST MAN IN ROME
 Picture
Publisher: William Morrow & Company, NY, 1990.
Near Fine in Fine dust jacket. Stated First Edition. Third Printing. Hard Cover. ISBN: 068809368X Third printing. Quarter bound in publisher's red cloth over beige boards, gilt lettering on spine. Maps on endpapers. 8vo. 896 pp. Includes extensive Glossary and a Pronunciation Guide. Illustrated with maps and B&W drawings by the author. The First Man in Rome is McCullough's first book in her brilliant series on the life of Julius Caesar, The Masters of Rome. This book focuses on the rise of Lucius Cornelius Sulla, who threatened to end the career, and life, of the young Caesar and Gaius Marius, the victorious general who drove back the invading Gauls and Caesar's uncle by marriage. The First Man in Rome sweeps the reader into an irresistibly vivid world of political intrigue, danger, wars, assassinations, devastating upheaval, intricately passionate family alliances and rivalries, and undeniable reality. The richness and accuracy of her historical detail provides a fitting background for the characters, who are themselves historic. McCullough's series of books are perhaps the finest historical novels based on Roman history that have ever been produced, and provide the reader with unequalled absorption into Roman life, suspense, excitement and minutely accurate Roman history. McCullough's books in her Masters of Rome series include The First Man in Rome (1990) ; The Grass Crown (1991) ; Fortune's Favorites (1993) ; Caesar's Women (1996) ; Caesar (1997), The October Horse (2002), and Antony and Cleopatra (2007).

Publisher: William Morrow and Company, Inc, NY, 1997.
As New in As New dust jacket. Stated First Edition. First Printing. Hard Cover. ISBN: 0688093728 Quarter bound in publisher's black cloth over red boards, gilt lettering on spine, maps on endpapers. Illustrated with ten B&W portraits and fourteen maps by the author. Includes extensive Glossary. This is the fifth volume in Colleen McCullough's massive Roman epic, The Masters of Rome, a life of Gaius Julius Caesar, covering not only his career, but also the periods immediately before and after Caesar. McCullough's books in her Masters of Rome series are perhaps the finest historical novels based on Roman history that have ever been produced, and provide the reader with unequalled absorption into Roman life, suspense, excitement and minutely accurate Roman history. It is 54 B. C. Gaius Julius Caesar is sweeping through Gaul, crushing the fierce. Long-haired warrior-kings who stand in his way. His victories in the name of Rome are epic, but the leaders of the Republic are not pleased, they are terrified. They do not know where what they perceive as the boundless ambition of Rome's most brilliant soldier will stop. He must be destroyed before he can overthrow the government and install himself as Dictator. When Cato and the Senate betray him, Caesar, in a momentous decision at the river Rubicon, resolves to turn his genius against the ungrateful Senate and aristocracy. These are tumultuous times - for Caesar, who endures personal tragedy and disappointment even as he wages war; for Pompey, who must wrestle with his fears that his greatness is at an end; for Brutus, who is caught in a hopeless love for his cousin Portia; for Cicero, whose luminous rhetoric is shattered by threats of violence; and for Rome, whose destiny lies in Caesar's hands. The fifth novel in Colleen McCullough's unforgettable Masters of Rome series, Caesar brings to life the passion and genius of an incomparable man. McCullough's seven books in her Masters of Rome series include The First Man in Rome (1990); The Grass Crown (1991); Fortune's Favorites (1993); Caesar's Women (1996); Caesar (1997); The October Horse (2002); and Antony and Cleopatra (2007).

Publisher: Pantheon Books, NY, 1966.
Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. Book Club Edition. Hard Cover Hardcover in dust jacket. 8vo (6 x 8.5"). (x), 371, (3) pp. Bound in publisher's full burgundy cloth, gilt (silver) lettering and red embossed decoration on spine. T.E.G. (yellow). Fore-edge deckle. Orange endpapers. This is an excellent, seemingly unread, copy. There is a former owner's name neatly written on the ffep, corners very lightly bumped, else fine. The dust jacket is lightly shelf-worn at the edges, else fine. NEAR FINE/NEAR FINE. Mary Renault is the acknowledged master of the Greek historical novel. In this masterful novel, set in Greece in the fourth century B. C. Mary Renault tells the story of the actor Nikeratos. Through the eyes of this warm, sympathetic and living character we experience the war-weary, self-searching world of his time. Always on his travels Niko, the tragedian, takes with him an antique mask of Apollo, a relic of the theatre's golden age, which from being his mascot becomes by degrees his artistic conscience. He refers to it his gravest decisions, when he finds himself at the center of political crises and dangerous intrigues. Much of the action of the novel is set in despotic Syracuse, in an era of decadence and strife. Dion, philosopher and soldier, with the help of his friend Plato, whom he has summoned from Athens, is trying to persuade the young tyrant, Dionysios the Younger, to accept the rule of law. Niko, immersed in his own on-stage tragedies, yet intimately involved with public figures and affairs, narrates the action of the greater human tragedy when Plato's fearless integrity sets off the clash between Dion and Dionysios, and looses the pent-up violence which culminates in the burning and sack of the city. This is a superb story, based on a remarkable knowledge of ancient Greece and told with a compelling, dramatic sweep. But shining through the web of history is always the vivid humanity of Niko, his loves, his devotion to his art. With this beautifully presented character, Mary Renault commands our attention and sympathy as never before. Deep human perception and understanding pervade The Mask of Apollo, and it is these that finally achieve its splendid evocation of the past. Mary Renault, perhaps the greatest historical novelist of our time, is the author of many histories and historical novels, including The Middle Mist (1945) Return to Night (1947) North Face (1949) The Charioteer (1953) The Last of the Wine (1956) The King Must Die (1958) The Bull from the Sea (1962) The Lion in the Gateway (1964) The Mask of Apollo (1966) Fire from Heaven (1969) The Persian Boy (1972) The Nature of Alexander (1975) The Praise Singer (1978) and Funeral Games (1981). 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall

THE MASK OF APOLLO
 Picture
Publisher: Pantheon Books, NY, 1966.
Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. Book Club (BCE/BOMC). Hard Cover Publisher's full burgundy cloth, silver lettering and red embossed decoration on spine. TEG (yellow). fore-edge deckle, orange endpapers. Reprint from the Book-of-the-Month Club News laid in. 8vo. (viii), 371 pp. This is an unmarked, unread copy, tight and square. The dust jacket is very lightly shelf-worn, with slight chipping at the heel of the spine only. FINE/NEAR FINE. Mary Renault is the acknowledged master of the Greek historical novel. In this masterful novel, set in Greece in the fourth century B. C. Mary Renault tells the story of the actor Nikeratos. Through the eyes of this warm, sympathetic and living character we experience the war-weary, self-searching world of his time. Always on his travels Niko, the tragedian, takes with him an antique mask of Apollo, a relic of the theatre's golden age, which from being his mascot becomes by degrees his artistic conscience. He refers to it his gravest decisions, when he finds himself at the center of political crises and dangerous intrigues. Much of the action of the novel is set in despotic Syracuse, in an era of decadence and strife. Dion, philosopher and soldier, with the help of his friend Plato, whom he has summoned from Athens, is trying to persuade the young tyrant, Dionysios the Younger, to accept the rule of law. Niko, immersed in his own on-stage tragedies, yet intimately involved with public figures and affairs, narrates the action of the greater human tragedy when Plato's fearless integrity sets off the clash between Dion and Dionysios, and looses the pent-up violence which culminates in the burning and sack of the city. This is a superb story, based on a remarkable knowledge of ancient Greece and told with a compelling, dramatic sweep. But shining through the web of history is always the vivid humanity of Niko, his loves, his devotion to his art. With this beautifully presented character, Mary Renault commands our attention and sympathy as never before. Deep human perception and understanding pervade The Mask of Apollo, and it is these that finally achieve its splendid evocation of the past. Mary Renault, perhaps the greatest historical novelist of our time, is the author of many histories and historical novels, including The Middle Mist (1945) Return to Night (1947) North Face (1949) The Charioteer (1953) The Last of the Wine (1956) The King Must Die (1958) The Bull from the Sea (1962) The Lion in the Gateway (1964) The Mask of Apollo (1966) Fire from Heaven (1969) The Persian Boy (1972) The Nature of Alexander (1975) The Praise Singer (1978) and Funeral Games (1981).
