"As Adam listens to the final bequest of his father's will, he knows he will at last learn the unspoken secret that shadowed the peaceful retirement of Colonel Scott and turned him from a WWI hero into a disgraced and broken man. But inside the yellowed envelope Adam finds a far more important secret. The path Adam has to follow leads him first to the innermost vault of a Swiss bank where his real inheritance lies-a priceless work of Russian art, a 14th-century icon, smuggled out of Russia by the last Czar and subsequently passed into the hands of a Nazi war criminal by a bizarre twist of fate. In following the path to clear his father's name, Adam has stumbled upon a revelation so explosive that it could forever change the balance of power between America and the Soviet Union."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall

Going Around in Academic Circles:  A Low View of Higher Education, Armour, Richard
167 Armour, Richard Going Around in Academic Circles: A Low View of Higher Education
New York McGraw-Hill Book Company 1965 First Edition Cloth Very Good+ in Very Good- dust jacket 
Illustrated by Hershfield, Leo

Blue boards are clean and bright. Very minor wear at bottom corners. DJ price-clipped, with very minor edgewear. Humorous illustrations throughout by Leo Hershfield. A clean, attractive copy.

"In what is, in effect, a parody of a college catalog, Armour gives the Armour treatment to such subjects as admissions, campus, roommates, expenses, employment, scholarships, class attendance, grades, physical education, the honor code, faculty advisors, department heads, the curriculum, and commencement speakers. Nothing escapes the Armour-piercing scrutiny. Though this is mostly a prose book, the chapter on Faculty and Staff presents an academic Spoon River Anthology that has more knife than spoon. This book is for everybody, but especially for presidents, deans, professors, alumni, students, drop-outs, drop-ins, and people with a sense of humor."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall

473 pp., blue boards. Preface by Alice Cromie. Spine somewhat slanted, corners a little bumped, some edgewear, sticker on front board, PO name inside is blacked out, Text is clean and unmarked.

Anthony Boucher described Charlotte Armstrong as "one of the few authentic spell-casting witches of modern times. "The Dream Walker" takes on spells and spooky goings-on. In "The Witch's House" she "not only created one of the most memorable and pitiable 'witchs' in suspense fiction, but took a vivid and unsentimental look at school systems, administrators, professors, and students, in a day when their problems were not quite so much the general concern." "'Mischief' began as a play, aptly titled 'Little Nell,' and became a movie starring Marilyn Monroe, 'Don't Bother to Knock,' must have improved the quality of baby-sitters, if not hotel detection or easy romancers, giving parents pause to think before they selected."; 7" - 9" Tall
