Appleman, Darwin's Ark. Appleman, Philip. Darwin’s Ark. Illustrated by Rudy Pozzatti. Indianapolis, Indiana University Press, 2009. 25.3cm x 17.5cm. XVII, 85 pages. With beautiful illustrations. Original Softcover. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear.

In celebration of Charles Darwin’s bicentennial and the 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin of Species, Indiana University Press is publishing a new paperback edition of Darwin’s Ark, a collection of Philip Appleman’s poems on Darwinian themes, stunningly illustrated by internationally known printmaker Rudy Pozzatti.

Philosophical, witty, poignant, deeply intellectual, and lyrical, Appleman’s poetry is always clear and powerful. All of the poems reflect Appleman’s perception of the “overwhelming sanity” of Darwin’s thought—together with a visceral sensation of wholeness—of the connectedness of humans and nature, of the present with the past, of joy and sorrow, life and death. Pozzatti’s varied illustrations represent his responses to the poems, providing a mini Darwin bestiary and much more. (Google Books).

Arensberg- Family and Community in Ireland Arensberg, Conrad M./ Kimball, Solon T. Family and Community in Ireland. Second Edition. Massachusetts, Harvard University Press, 1968. 24cm x 16cm. xxxiii, 417 (5) pages. 14 figures, 13 tables. Maps of Clare and Ennis. Original Hardcover with original dustjacket. Good condition with some stronger signs of external wear. Waterstain on edge. Endpaper signed by preowner. Interesting newspaper-clipping about Ballybough Jewish Cemetery included. Very rare publication.

Includes for Example: The Small Farmers/ Small Farm Economy/ Family Labor/ The Relations of Kindred/ The Kinship System/ Demography and Familism/ Family Transition at Marriage/ Dispersal and Emigration/ The Problem of the Aged/ The Old in the Community/ Familism and Sex/ Occupation and Status/ Markets and Community/ The Framework of Relationship/ The Town: Setting and People/ Shopkeepers and Shop Assistants/ Induction and Transformation/ Marriage and Family/ Mobility and Continuity/ Reciprocals of Family and Credit etc.

The authors gathered their material during the early 1930s, when they lived for two years among the people of County Clare, and managed to establish relations of mutual friendliness and confidence with their various hosts. Their study focuses on the distinctive culture of the small farmers of Eire. After a brief statistical review to establish the small farmer class and characterize the nature and scope of its economic activities, the treatment centers on the family groups dwelling on the land and following the rhythmic cycles of an ancient mode of life. The rural familial economy with its division of labor between the sexes and between age groupings, traditional patterns that govern the status and control the relations between family members, the system of kinship, the interplay of demographic and familial factors, the institution of match-making as it affects family continuity and the dispersal of members, the sex mores, the position and problems of the aged, and the social and economic bonds that weld families into the community: all are described and discerningly analyzed.

The present edition includes six new chapters on the behavior of Irish townsmen and the distinctions between rural and urban life, even as the two remain intimately linked. Once more, the clear, sympathetic presentation of material makes this volume decidedly important, not only to the social scientist and anthropologist, but also to the general reader who is interested in Ireland, in things Irish, or simply the nature of human relationships.

Aston, Monasteries in the Landscape. Aston, Mick. Monasteries in the Landscape. Stroud, Tempus Publishing, 2000. 17 cm x 25 cm. 223 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition with minor signs of external wear. Slightly worn corners. Clean inside with solid binding.

Includes the following chapters: The Illustrations / Preface / Acknowledgements / Introduction / Monasteries in the landscape / The earliest monasteries / Anglo-Saxon monasteries before the Vikings / Saxon and Norman monasteries / The new orders / Monastic precincts / Monastic estates, lands and buildings / The later Middle Ages and the Dissolution / From the Dissolution to the present day.

″In the Middle Ages monasteries were among the greatest owners of land in Britain; today their influence on the landscape can be seen not only in the magnificent monastic ruins, but also in earthworks, patterns of landholding and even industrial remains. Mick Aston examines the place of monasteries in the landscape – how they affected and were affected by the countryside in which they were built. He explains how monasticism arrived in Britain – growing from austere beginnings to rich and powerful estates. He looks at why abbeys and priories were sited where they were and at all aspects of their activities – estate management, farming policy, industrial and commercial operations in the countryside and in towns. The story does not end with the Dissolution: the book also discusses how many of their estates and buildings were bought by private owners and adapted for secular use. Whether you are an amateur archaeologist/historian or student, this magnificently illustrated book will direct you to the signs in the landscape that reveal the past glory of Britain’s monasteries.” (Publisher)

Tommy Atkins (often just Tommy) is slang for a common soldier in the British Army. It was certainly well established during the nineteenth century, but is particularly associated with World War I. It can be used as a term of reference, or as a form of address. German soldiers would call out to “Tommy” across no man’s land if they wished to speak to a British soldier. French and Commonwealth troops would also call British soldiers “Tommies”. In more recent times, the term Tommy Atkins has been used less frequently, although the name “Tom” is occasionally still heard, especially with regard to paratroopers. (Wikipedia)
