In this influential book Mumford explored the development of urban civilizations. Harshly critical of urban sprawl, Mumford argues that the structure of modern cities is partially responsible for many social problems seen in western society. While pessimistic in tone, Mumford argues that urban planning should emphasize an 'organic' relationship between people and their living spaces. Mumford uses the example of the medieval city as the basis for the "ideal city," and claims that the modern city is too close to the Roman city (the sprawling megalopolis) which ended in collapse; if the modern city carries on in the same vein, Mumford argues, then it will meet the same fate as the Roman city. Mumford wrote critically of urban culture believing the city is "a product of earth ... a fact of nature ... man's method of expression." Further, Mumford recognized the crises facing urban culture, distrustful of the growing finance industry, political structures, fearful that a local community culture was not being fostered by these institutions. Mumford feared urbanization, politics, and alienation. Mumford wrote: "The physical design of cities and their economic functions are secondary to their relationship to the natural environment and to the spiritual values of human community." Lewis Mumford (October 19, 1895 – January 26, 1990) was a historian, sociologist, philosopher of technology, and critic. Particularly noted for his study of cities and urban architecture, he had a broad career as a writer.

Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2023. First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. xxvi, 558,  pages. Figures. Formulas, Notation. Tables. Bibliography. Index. The format is approximately 7.25 inches by 10.25 inches. Inscribed by the author on the title page. Inscription reads To Carlos with best wishes John H. Cochrane. John Howland Cochrane (born 26 November 1957) is an American economist specializing in financial economics and macroeconomics. Formerly a professor of economics and finance at the University of Chicago, Cochrane serves full-time as the Rose-Marie and Jack Anderson Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. Cochrane has served as head of the National Bureau of Economic Research asset pricing group, and was the editor of the Journal of Political Economy from 1998 to 2003. He was elected Fellow of the Econometric Society in 2001, served as vice-president of the American Finance Association in 2008, and was elected president of this learned society for the 2010 term. Cochrane is the author of Asset Pricing, a widely used textbook in graduate courses on asset pricing.

Cochrane received the TIAA-CREF Institute Paul A. Samuelson Award for this book. Cochrane has worked on the fiscal theory of the price level, on the debate between permanent and temporary shocks in macroeconomic fluctuations, and the cost of near-rational behavior.

The LIRR's history stretches back to the Brooklyn and Jamaica Rail Road, incorporated on April 25, 1832 to build a ten-mile line from the East River in Brooklyn through the communities of Brooklyn, Bedford, and East New York to Jamaica. B&J engineer Major D. B. Douglass soon began planning for a continuation, forming part of an 11-hour combination rail and steamship route between New York City and Boston in cooperation with the New York, Providence and Boston Railroad and Boston and Providence Rail Road. Douglass attracted wealthy New Yorkers and Bostonians, who received a charter for the Long-Island Rail-Road Company on April 24, 1834, with the right "to construct, and during its existence to maintain and continue a rail-road or rail-roads, with a single or double track..., It was also authorized to unite with the Brooklyn and Jamaica with the consent of that company. Since its plan was not to serve local traffic, the LIRR chose not to serve existing communities along the shores of the island, but built straight down the middle of the island, which was largely uninhabited at the time and relatively free of grade crossings. This straight route was the quickest and the easiest to build, compared to the options of building along the northern coast of Long Island, or in a north-central route following the Middle Country Road. The LIRR was organized on June 17, 1835, and Knowles Taylor was elected president.

New York: Parachute Press, 1992. First Printing [Stated]. Mass market paperback. 94,  pages. Decorative front cover. Illustrations. Cover has some wear and soiling. Some page discoloration noted. Jean Waricha is a renown and widely published author. Terry Kovalcik was a 2022 Lis-el Crowley Vision Award Honoree. Terry Kovalcik brings more than 4 decades of experience as an artist and maker to his work in metal clay, which he was introduced to in 1999. His years as an illustrator and designer inform his approach to working in the medium and have led him to develop techniques for which he is well known within the metal clay community. Terry developed the viscosity painting technique using his fine brush skills to apply metal clay paste to create beautiful bas-relief designs and sculptural forms. His carving techniques rely on his steady hand to create unique three-dimensional forms. Both surface techniques can be seen inside and outside of his exquisitely made lockets, which require an eye for precision and complexity. As an internationally sought-after metal clay instructor, Terry is a master at breaking down the construction of these complex pieces and inspiring his students to create their own versions one small step at a time. Many in the metal clay community consider him to be a mentor and a builder of communities. Terry Kovalcik's work has been featured in more then a dozen books authored by Jean Waricha, Tim McCreight, Cece Wire, Barbara Becker Simon, Jeanette Landenwitch, and Linda Kaye-Moses.

Cover has slight wear and soiling. This is a snap-shot, during the opening period of the twenty-first century, not only of gun values, but of hunting and other sports, collecting, repairing, and attitudes toward gun rights. Steven Peter “S.P.” Fjestad was introduced to firearms and hunting at a young age. Steve attended the University of Minnesota and North Dakota State University and he began working for Burgess Construction Company, who were building the interstate at that time. His love of firearms would become his life’s work after he began attending shows on the gun show circuit.

In 1980, Steve moved to Minneapolis and began working as a gun broker with Investment Rarities. A year later, he took over the manuscript of the annual Blue Book of Gun Values. In 1988, Steve and three others founded Blue Book Publications, which over the years expanded into a robust publishing company with more than 100 titles in print and a full online offering. The 40th Anniversary Edition Blue Book of Gun Values was published in early 2019. Steve was into collectibles, specifically fine firearms.

Anthony Pelzer Wagener was a Professor of ancient Languages at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. The Malden High School is one of the oldest high schools in the US; it opened in 1857. A. P. Wagener was professor of ancient languages and head of the department of ancient languages at the College of William and Mary in Virginia for nearly 30 years. During this time he made a remarkable contribution to the advancement of Latin pedagogy and the study of Latin in the secondary schools of the state and nation. In 1936, he established a summer institute for the refreshment and enrichment of Latin teachers. This institute-perhaps the first of its kind to be conducted in the United States—continued for some 20 years and eventually drew participants from all parts of the country. Wagener also was consultant and editor for the Virginia State Board of Education of the first printed description of a Latin curriculum for the high schools. With T. Jenkins he wrote two widely used Latin textbooks, Latin and the Romans, Books I and II. He bore always the stamp of the civility and culture associated with his native Charleston, SC. One result of his dissertation was the publication of a description of the Roman remains at and around the town of Velletri. He was active in numerous organizations, both classical and non-classical.
