3 Barrow, John D. Impossibility: The Limits of Science and the Science of Limits.
Oxford: Oxford University Press, (1998). Reprinted with Corrections. 
Octavo, blue cloth (hardcover), silver letters, xiii, 279 pp. Fine ,in a Fine dust jacket. From jacket: This is no ordinary look at the limits of science. Using simple explanations, it shows the reader that impossibility is a deep and powerful notion; that any Universe complex enough to contain consious beings will contain limits on what those beings can know about their Universe; that what we cannot know defines reality as surely as what we can know. Impossibility is a two edged sword: it threatens the completeness of the scientific enterprise yet without it there would be no laws of Nature, no science, no scientists...

4 Beede, J. W. and Hedwig T. Kniker. Species of the Genus Schwagerina and Their Stratigraphic Significance.
Austin: The University of Texas, 1924. [University of Texas Bulletin, No. 2433: September 1, 1924]. 
Octavo, paperbound (printed grey wrappers), 98 pp. Very Good+, with lightly rubbed edges & age darkening. From Introduction: Species of the genus Schwagerina occur in most of the outcropping limestones formed in the open, connected, epicontinental seas existing at the time of the initiation of the Permian fauna and flora. They are highly organized formainifera, of large size, and they occupy a limited thickness of rocks. They thus form valuable horizon markers wherever they occur...It is the purpose of this paper to describe the known specieis of the genus Schwagerina; to discuss their relationships with the other Fusulinae; their distribution throughout the Northern Hemisphere, and the analysis and correlation of the faunas with which they are associated.

5 Berkson, Jacob B. A Canary's Tale: The Final Battle -- Politics, Poisons, and Pollution vs. The Environment and the Public Health. Volume I: The Odyssey, 1988 - 1996. Volume II: Research, References and Resources, 1988 - 1996. Drawings by Jack Garver. Foreword by Norman E. Rosenthal, M.D.
Published by the Author, (1996). Printed with Soy Ink on Recycled Paper. 
Signed & Inscribed by Author. Octavo, hardcover (slick white illus. boards), xviii, 152 pp. Fine (As New). From Preface: The purpose of A Canary's Tale is to pick up the torch lit by Rachel Carson more than thirty years ago in her Silent Spring and to sound a clarion call to every citizen to get involved in the War to preserve and protect the environment and the public health. A Canary's Tale is about a very real, but little understood, danger, to the public health, safety and welfare; indeed, to the very survival of man... The danger comes from man's daily exposure to thousands of toxic chemicals expelled into the air he breathes, the water he drinks, the soil in which he grows his food, and the food he eats. Despite warnings from thousands of reputable scientists and daily accounts in the media and the press, the public has failed to recognize the toxic chemicals to which the are exposed nearly everywhere on a daily basis may be the cause of their medical problems or the aggravating trigger of a preexisting illness...

15 Jachowski, Leo A. and Donald C. Scott. Abbreviations of Authors' Names in Malacology.
No publication info. 
Quarto, paperbound, 38 pp. Near-Fine.
