John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, was assassinated on Friday, November 22, 1963, at 12:30 p.m. Central Standard Time in Dallas, Texas, while riding in a presidential motorcade through Dealey Plaza. Kennedy was riding with his wife Jacqueline, Texas Governor John Connally, and Connally's wife Nellie when he was fatally shot by former U.S. Marine Lee Harvey Oswald, firing in ambush from a nearby building. Governor Connally was seriously wounded in the attack. The motorcade rushed to Parkland Memorial Hospital where Kennedy was pronounced dead about 30 minutes after the shooting; Connally recovered. Oswald was arrested by the Dallas Police Department 70 minutes after the initial shooting. Oswald was charged under Texas state law with the murder of Kennedy, as well as that of Dallas policeman J. D. Tippit, who had been fatally shot a short time after the assassination. At 11:21 a.m. November 24, 1963, as live television cameras were covering his transfer from the city jail to the county jail, Oswald was fatally shot in the basement of Dallas Police Headquarters by Dallas nightclub operator Jack Ruby. Oswald was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital, where he soon died. Ruby was convicted of Oswald's murder, though it was later overturned on appeal, and Ruby died in prison in 1967 while awaiting a new trial. After a 10-month investigation, the Warren Commission concluded that Oswald assassinated Kennedy, that Oswald had acted entirely alone, and that Ruby had acted alone in killing Oswald. Kennedy was the eighth and most recent US President to die in office, and the fourth (following Lincoln, Garfield, and McKinley) to be assassinated. Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson automatically became president upon Kennedy's death. A later investigation, the United States House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA), agreed with the Warren Commission that the injuries that Kennedy and Connally sustained were caused by Oswald's three rifle shots, but they also concluded that Kennedy was "probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy" as analysis of a dictabelt audio recording pointed to the existence of an additional gunshot and therefore ". a high probability that two gunmen fired at [the] President". The committee was not able to identify any individuals or groups involved with the possible conspiracy. In addition, the HSCA found that the original federal investigations were "seriously flawed" with respect to information-sharing and the possibility of conspiracy. As recommended by the HSCA, the dictabelt evidence suggesting conspiracy was subsequently re-examined and rejected. It was determined that the dictabelt recorded different gunshots which were fired at another location in Dallas and at a different time which was not related to the assassination. In light of the investigative reports determining that "reliable acoustic data do not support a conclusion that there was a second gunman", the U.S. Justice Department concluded active investigations and stated "that no persuasive evidence can be identified to support the theory of a conspiracy" in the assassination. However, Kennedy's assassination is still the subject of widespread debate and has spawned numerous conspiracy theories and alternative scenarios. Polls conducted from 1966 to 2004 found that up to 80 percent of Americans suspected that there was a plot or cover-up. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Signed by Author.

Killing for Company takes Truman Capote's In Cold Blood and Norman Mailer's The Executioner's Song a step further, for here in this remarkable book about the biggest mass killer in British history, Brian Masters, with a nearly year-long, almost daily correspondence with an articulate and intelligent mass murderer, has produced a detailed accounting of each of the more important murders. Step by step he tells how these murders happened with clues as to why they happened. Equally interesting is the trial itself and the testimony of those who ere almost murdered but by some fluke escaped and never went to the police. This harrowing book includes drawings by the murderer with a section of photographs and a postscript by one of the world's most distinguished psychiatrists, Anthony Storr. This is not only a thrilling book to read but an extraordinary study of a master criminal and what goes on inside his mind, more thoroughly documented than in any previous book. Once you've read it, you'll never forget it. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

The Sandman wasn't there to make sure I went straight to a safe place. My chest tightened, fear weighing me down, locking my joints. I couldn't let what the Weaver said to get to me; the Sandman was alive. He was hiding maybe or lost. Healing - he definitely needed it. The last time he was hurt, he had healed enough for his magic to catch me but this time. there could be a million reasons his magic wasn't here to greet me. For the first time in five years. After we ventured into the Nightmare Realm, and he fought whatever horrible thing was outside the cave. I winced. This train of thought wasn't helping. As my eyes adjusted, I found myself amid low swooping vines. Thin, willowy trees dotted the landscape, and my feet sunk into the mossy ground, releasing a whiff of stagnant water with each step. Insects buzzed, and frogs croaked. Dim lights flickered in the distance, floating, swooping. I rubbed the chill from my upper arms. "Sandman?" I whispered. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

The Vernal Utah Temple is the fifty-first temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Located in Vernal it is the tenth LDS temple built in the state of Utah. Upon its dedication November 2, 1997, the Vernal Temple was unique as the only LDS temple built from a previously existing structure. Since 1997, the Copenhagen Denmark, Manhattan New York, and Provo City Center temples have been similarly adapted from existing structures. Originally, the building served as the Uintah Stake Tabernacle for Latter-day Saints in eastern Utah. The Tabernacle's foundation was constructed of nearby sandstone with walls built of four layers of fired brick from local clay. The building was built with considerable donated labor from the fall of 1899 until it was dedicated on August 24, 1907, by LDS Church president Joseph F. Smith. Smith reportedly said he would not be surprised if a temple was built there some day. Relative to other LDS Tabernacles, Roger Jackson characterized the Uintah Stake Tabernacle as relatively modest, without the decorative details found on Tabernacles in central and northern Utah. Nonetheless, he wrote, "the building is the most prominent structure in Vernal and considered the finest building in all of eastern Utah." The tabernacle was superseded by an adjacent, more modern LDS stake center in 1948. Only used irregularly thereafter, the LDS Church announced the Tabernacle's closing in 1984 for public safety reasons. Among other things, the Tabernacle lacked indoor bathrooms and access for the disabled. A local "Save the Tabernacle" committee formed, and in 1989 a preservation study was prepared. The LDS Church opted to turn the building into one of its new smaller temples, and plans were announced in 1994. In addition to preserving the exterior, bringing the building up to code, and altering the floor plan, the eastern spire of the temple was elongated to make it taller than the spire of the neighboring stake center. A golden statue of angel Moroni was placed on top of the spire facing east, a common element of almost all LDS Temples. Over 120,000 visited the temple during its two-week open house in October 1997. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

It takes an understanding of the process, and having an expert on your side of the table certainly helps. There is more to trying lawsuit than direct - and cross-examination. Win or lose, each trial has several "take-away" lessons that allow you to continue to hone your skills as a lawyer. Of course, the biggest lesson is that, striped of its glamour and legal theories, trying cases is about understanding and communicating with people. Frank Jones is a courtroom expert with over 40 years of experience and dozens of jury trials under his belt. In Lessons from the Courtroom, he gives lawyers young and old the benefit of his decades of experience in handling courtroom stresses and gives solid pointers on how to win cases and do the very best for your clients.

When Mama and Papa Love learn that they are to have a child, they are astonished to hear that their baby will not be an ordinary child. Instead, she will be a princess, who will one day bring freedom to her parents and to all the slaves on the plantation where they live. But Mama and Papa Love fear that their master, the mean plantation owner. They pray that by some miracle she will be kept from such a terrible fate. Indeed, at the moment of their daughter's birth, a miracle does occur: the Power of Nature make her invisible, and the Prince of Night whisks her from her mother's arms to safety. Years later it is Patience, Captain Pepper's blind daughter, who discovers the Invisible Princess. When she tells her father about her vision of a beautiful black girl in the cotton fields, he recalls rumors of the slave child who vanished many years before. He vows that if the Invisible Princess exists, he will find her; should any of his slaves try to hide the girl, Mama and Papa Love. Together, with the Powers of Nature, they collaborate to foil Captain Pepper's plan. This original fairy tale by one of America's most talented artists is a remarkable interweaving of myth and history, emotion and grace. Vividly illustrated, it will capture attention of all who read it and all who, along with the Invisible Princess, yearn for a world ruled by peace and love. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

Satisfaction Guaranteed. Pearland is a city in the U.S. state of Texas, within Brazoria County, with portions extending into Fort Bend and Harris counties. The city of Pearland is a principal city within the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land metropolitan statistical area. Pearland had its beginnings near a siding switch on the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway in 1882. When a post office was established in 1893, the community was named "Mark Belt". On September 24, 1894, the plat of "Pear-Land" was filed with the Brazoria County courthouse by Witold von Zychlinski, a man of Polish nobility. At the time Pearland had many fruits harvested by residents. Zychlinski saw the pear trees and decided that "Pearland" would make a good name for the community. In the 1800s, Pearland consisted of prairie. Residents harvested fruit and vegetables such as cantaloupes, corn, figs, pears and watermelons. Pearland was promoted by developers Allison & Richey Land Company as an "agricultural Eden". The first subdivision was called "Suburban Gardens". The Galveston hurricane of 1900 and the Galveston hurricane of 1915 destroyed most of the city's fruit trees and slowed growth for a considerable period of time, and caused a period of desertification in the area. In 1914, with agriculture rebounding and the end of desertification, Pearland had a population of 400, but a devastating freeze in 1918 was another setback to the local farming enterprises. Oil was discovered nearby in 1934, which led to the development of the Hastings Oilfield, though it did not spur much growth, as the population fluctuated between 150 and 350. In the 1930s and 1940s, Pearland had many dance halls and beer joints that entertained people from the Hastings and Manvel oil fields. From the 1970s, the town has grown to its present-day population. By 1990, the city limits had extended into Harris County. In the 1990s, home developers began buying large tracts of land, changing the geography of the city. Former rice fields filled with houses. The historic town center of Pearland is at the intersection of Texas State Highway 35/Main and Broadway. West Pearland has a lot of suburban development, while East Pearland has older houses and, according to Maggie Galehouse of the Houston Chronicle, Pearland's "rural roots still show" in the east side. Pearland's main east-west corridor is Farm to Market Road 518/Broadway. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

Satisfaction Guaranteed. Edward Thomas's letters to Eleanor Farjeon, here printed in full, form a running record of his last four years. This letter sequence, in the words of the Foreword: 'has much more than a reference value; to lovers of his work it will help to reveal something more of one of the least self-revealing of men: a man whose "central evil" was self-consciousness, "carried as far beyond selfishness as selfishness is beyond self-denial". He could write this of himself in 1913, only two years before the torturing self-consciousness was transformed into the poet's self-expression. Edward Thomas dictates the shape of this book, which opens at his first meeting with Elanor Farjeon in the late autumn of 1912 and ends with his last letter from France in April 1917. But it is a double memoir, for the continuity of the letters enables Eleanor Farjeon to follow closely the course of those years in her life, to describe the things done and friends made, Robert Frost, D.H. Lawrence, Herbert Farjeon, Clifford Bax, Lascelles Abercrombie and many others taking their parts in this first volume of her memoirs. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Philip Snow's departure from his beloved Fijian Service on appointment as Bursar of Rugby School was heart-rending. A major factor in the decision was the chance of seeing more of his elder brother, CP Snow, who was always a keenly-felt influence, even when separated by thousands of miles of wide oceans. Philip Snow was himself a character in three of CP Snow's novels and this book contributes to the understanding of the novels and their characters. And the decision was increasingly justified as his elder brother's reputation grew, as a writer, as a minister in Harold Wilson's government and, in the House of Lords, as Lord Snow of Leicester. All this, and Rugby School, brought Philip Snow into the slipstream of acquaintance and friendship with figures of eminence in a variety of fields. Consequently, the book reads like a mini-Who's Who of the great, the good and the outstanding at home and abroad - in cricket, arts and letters, politics, the armed services, the law, academe, royalty the variety is endless - over two or three generations. His judgement is sharp, shrewd, sometimes robust, but always fair and objective and the result is a series of finely-etched vignettes making up a fascinating social history of England from the 1950s. his friendships in Fiji endured as did his love of cricket, and these came together in his role as Fiji's representative on the International Cricket Council for over 30 years. The main theme, however, is his relationship with CP Snow and also with his brother's novelist wife, Pamela Hansford Johnson. He writes with insight and originality, and reveals important new material. The story is told with verve, sympathy and style. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
