16 Robinson, Robert H. The Illustrious Oyster Illustrated: A Gallery of Art & Photographs of the Roystering Oyster.
Georgetown, DE: Sussex Prints, Inc., (1983). [Shellfish heritage Cookbook, Part II and number Five in The Shellfish Series]. 
Oblong octavo, spiral bound (blue plastic spiral wit stiff, color illus. boards), 80 pp. Near-Fine. From Introduction: Oysters are the illustrious of foods. “Pshaw!” you may respond. And your cynical snort may seem justified, for few foods first appear as unattractive and unappetizing as oysters. Indeed, they are not even attractive rocks. They are brought by back-breaking labor from the sea, dripping, engulfed by mud and often sprouting un recognizable organisms in which only a marine biologist would be interestred. Even clean, these jagged and gnarled mollusks appear in need of a good sanding down. And what meager mucous innards they contain they obstinately refust to relinquish. The process of opening an oyster has probably caused more cursing and injured hands than the preparation of any other food....A lot can be said against the oyster. But now to list the unique attributes of this bivalve. What other food has been used as ammunition?...

18 Spencer, Colin. The Heretic's Feast: A History of Vegetarianism.
Hanover: University Press of New England, (1995). 
Octavo, black cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, xiii + 402 pp. Fine (As New) in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. Frokm dust jacket: In this fascinating and informative story of vegetarianism since prehistoric times, Colin Spencer describes the religious, philosophical, and social aspects of vegetarianism, introducing such prominent and often colorful practicioners as Pythagoras, Ovid, Leonardo da Vinci, Sir Thomas More, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine, Leo Tolstoy, George Bernard Shaw, Gandhi, and Hitler. Though the word “vegetarian” was not coined until the mid-nineteenth century, the meatless diet has been around for as long as people have. Spencer describes the major movements that have shared the doctrine as well as the surprisingly diverse moralities, perspectives, and philosophies that motivated them. He shows that vegetarianism, when not forced on humans by poverty, was often just one element in a radical ideology that repeatedly led to the marginalization of vegetarians in our society. This gracefully written and meticulously researched book presents not only a surprising slice through world history but also an unusual story of dissidence and revolt.
