3 Bell, Peggy Kirk; with Jerry Claussen. A Woman's Way to Better Golf. [Signed]. Foreword by Patty Berg.
Peggy Kirk Bell, (1972). Third Printing. 
Signed, dated, and inscribed: Fore Gertrude, Here's to better golf. Octavo, green cloth(hardcover), 128 pp. Neat former-owner stamps; otherwise, Near-Fine in a Good+ dust jacket with edgewear that includes light chipping. From dust jacket: An entertainingly written and careful, step-by-step instructional golf book for women by a top woman golf professional and teacher. A Woman's Way to Better Golf is divided into fifteen chapters, all copiously illustrated to show in pictures what Mrs. Bell is describing in words. Here is everything the beginning woman golfer needs to know: the general principles of golf; ethics and rules; the vocabularly of golf. Mrs. Bell tells how to select the proper clubs, and what clubs are necessary for a beginning set. She also covers the equipment other than clubs which will be needed -- bag, shoes, tasteful and stylish clothing for hot and cold, wet and dry weather, including accessories. With equipment covered, Mrs. Bell gets into the game itself. She covers the three most important ingredients of good golf: grip, stance and swing. And then she goes on to apply them to the various shots: woods from the tree and fairway; long irons and chipping; putting. Next come the problem shots, such as bad lies in the rough, sand bunkers, thick wooded areas. And then the errors: the slice, hook, shank, top, scuff -- and how to correct them. Finally, Mrs. Bell takes up the matter of practice -- and the proper way to do it -- and the value of lessons. She even suggests various kinds of exercises of exceptional value for the woman golfer. the result is a book which combines the light touch with plenty of solid information for the beginning golfer.

4 Bernstein, Jeremy. Ascent: Of the Invention of Mountain Climbing and Its Practice.
New York: Random House, [1965]. First Edition, First Printing, As Stated. 
Octavo, blue cloth & board (hardcover), gilt letters, uncut, illus. endpapers, xv, 124 pp. Near-Fine, with former-owner inscription, in a Very Good dust jacket with rubbing and light edgewear. Ò...This book is a superb account of mountaineering in the Alps -- its history ad its continuing fascination. Mr. Bernstien begins by describing the birth of Alpinism...with de Saussure's dream of climbing Mount Blanc and the first successful assault on it by the French climber Dr. Paccard and his guide Balmat. The book then tells of the golden age of mountaineering in the Alps -- the time of the great English climbers: Whymper, who won the race for the summit of the Matterhorn in 1865, and Mummery, who conquered the Grepon fifteen years latter. Finally, Mr. Bernstein turns to modern climbing and its methods and tells his own experiences in the Alps with the extraordinary guides of Chamonix. Ascent is a vivid presentation of the world of Alpinism. For the non-mountaineer it will serve as a concise introduction to the history and special appeal of this sport; and it will delight those who already know the excitements of mountainerring...Ó

18 Physiology Group, Panel on Underwater Swimmers, Committee on Undersea Warfare. Status of Research in Underwater Physiology, March 1956. Prepared for the Office of Naval Research, Washington, D.C., by the Physiology Group, Panel on Underwater Swimmers, Committee on Undersea Warfare.
Washington, D.C.: National Academy of Sciences-National Research Council, 1956. 
Octavo, paperbound (stiff, stapled green wrappers), 24 pp. Very Good, with sunning to edges, former-owner stamp and sticker to upper cover. Abstract: This report has been prepared by the Physiology Group of the Panel on Underwater Swimmers as a general review of the current status of underwater physiology. In this discussion of existing information, emphasis is placed upon the interrelationship of various factors and upon a number of important questions which appear at present to be unanswered. Large new areas of underwater physiology have been opened by recent studies and should be susceptible to further investigation. The possibility now exists of a breakthrough in one or more of these areas. There is reason to expect that it will not always be necessary to base predictions of potential diving depth and duration upon the physiological barriers which now restrict underwater activity.
