63 Algeo, John; Editor. Thomas Pyles: Selected Essays on English Usage.
Gainesville: University Presses of Florida, 1979. First Edition. 
Octavo, blue cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, xiv + 223 pp. Fine (As New) in a Very Good dust jacket with light edgewear. From dust jacket: The twenty-one essays by Thomas Pyles in this collection bear witness to the vitality of the English language and to its integrity in the midst of great variety in use. Published over a 34-year period by this distinguished scholar of English language study and usage, many of these writings are otherwise not readily available. The selections are presented here for the benefit of laymen as well as students of the language in honor of their author, a master of English prose style, who, by his example, has set and continues to set a standard in matter and manner to which all linguistics should aspire. The essays are grouped under five topical headings: the pronunciation of Latin in England and America; currently fashionable forms of expression; unwitting indecorum in the use of taboo words; curiosities in the bestowal of names and titles; and popular versus scholarly views of language usage and change. Although diverse in subject matter, the essays present a consistent view of English usage and of the attitudes that English language set forth with the precision, craft, and style that Thomas Pyles's students and colleagues look forward to in all his work.

72 Allen, Wing Commander H. R., D.F.C. The Legacy of Lord Trenchard.
London: Cassell, (1972). 
Octavo, blue boards (hardcover), gilt letters, xi + 228 pp. Near-Fine, with former-owner bookplate and light speckling to edges; in a Fine dust jacket. From dust jacket: In 1956 the 83-year-old Marshal of the Royal Air Force the Viscount Trenchard, GCB, OM, GCVO, DSO, DCL, LLD, was buried in Westminster Abbey with full military honours. The Father of the Royal Air Force had lived to see the policies he had propounded at the birth of the RAF during the First World War carried on by his successors while he, by dint of his awesome personality and great prestige, continued from the eminence of the House of Lords to dominate Britain's air policy through the expansion of the RAF prior to the SEcond World War, Wing Commander Allen, a well-known defence commentator and military economist, shows that Trenchard lacked the mental stature to imbue the RAF with the correct military philosophy and the myths that grew up around him were to the detriment of British bombing policy. This is the first book to attempt a cost-effective evaluation of our strategic airoffensive which broadly failed in its war aims. The failure of the RAF to pinpoint comparatively small targets in the early years of the Second World War forced the top brass to the fallacious conclusion that the burning of seventy of the largest cities in Germany would win the war for the Allies. This all-out assault on civilian morale was contrary to the beliefs of Churchill and Roosevelt, who were in favour of destryoing the Luftwaffe and its supporting factories, but the RAF defiantly made the cities their target. The Battle of Berlin in March 1944 proved how wrong they were. It cost the RAF 600 Lancaster bombers aloe and did not, as was hoped, bring the war to an end. Nevertheless Harmburg and Dresden were razed, because of a refusal to believe that the bombing of specific installations would have been more effective than saturation bombing of cities with their largely civilian populations. Post-war policies and Air Staff plans for the future the author feels are disastrous and he has some intriguing ideas for the possible future use of defunct airfields. Altogether, a book that will undoubtedly provoke opposition as well as approval, but one that cannot be ignored in the face of the present discussions on the cutback of government spending on the armed forces.

79 Altshuler, David; Editor. The Precious Legacy: Judaic Treasures from the Czechoslovak State Collections.
New York: Summit Books[1983]. 
Quarto, softbound, 288 pp. Photo. illus. Tiny rip to top of spine; otherwise, Fine. ŇThe collection of the Czechoslovak State Jewish Museum in Prague is a unique resposity of historic artifacts, artistic rarities, and cultural memories. These objects document the vitality and significance of Czech Jewry, which has flourished for a millennium at the crossroads of East and West and is the oldest continuous Jewish community in Europe. One hundred fifty-three local Jewish communities in Bohemia and Moravia were devastated during the Holocaust, and thus the Prague Museum bears eloquent testimony to a world virtually snuffed out just one generation ago. This book brings to American audiences their first glimpse of this extraordinary collection of Judaica in conjuction with an exhibition that is touring our nation's major museums under the auspices of the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service."
