fragments of an attempted writing.

books for sale, part two.

Ill today so I won't get as many books up as I had hoped.  I'll get back to it seriously next week.

Gertrude Himmelfarb titles.  It seems I still have some conservative readers here, and others interested in conservative thought if only to "know thy enemy" so I thought perhaps someone might take some interest in the work of Irving Kristol's wife.  Here are the Himmelfarbs:

Victorian Minds: A Study of Intellectuals in Crisis and Ideologies in Transition.  Elephant Paperbacks, Chicago, 1995.  Paperback, 392 pages.  Clean and tight.  Small slight dents to paper cover.  Very good condition.  Price $5.00 plus $4.00 S&H.

Darwin and the Darwinian Revolution.  Elephant Paperbacks, Chicago, 1996.  Paperback, 510 pages.  Clean and tight.  Very slight wear to cover.  Very good condition.  Price $5.00 plus $4.00 S&H.

Lord Acton: A Study in Conscience and Politics.Phoenix Books. University of Chicago Press, 1962.  Paperback 258 pages.  Front hinge cracked, first two in papers in tact but half loosened from spine -- all other pages tight and secure.  Slight wear to cover.  Pages clean, with very slight oxidation.  This book is rare enough that it usually goes for over $30 on the used market but because my copy is in fair condition I'll sell it for less.  This is a perfectly sound reading copy however.  Price $17.50 plus $5.00 S&H.

Marriage and Morals Among the Victorians and other Essays by Gertrude Himmelfarb.  Vintage Books, New York, 1987.  Paperback, 253 pages.  Very slight wear to cover, very slight oxidation, minor pencil underlining in initial pages, otherwise clean and tight, very good condition.  Signature of Donald R. Mitchell inside front cover.  Donald Mitchell is the man who set up the C.S. Lewis collection at Wheaton.  I bought this book from him.  Price $3.00 plus $4.00 S&H.

Poverty and Compassion: The Moral Imagination of the Late Victorians.  Vintage, New York, 1992.  Paperback, 475 pages.  Clean and tight, very good to excellent condition.  Price $2.00 plus $4.00 S&H.

On Looking into the Abyss: Untimely Thoughts on Culture and Society.  Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1994. Hardback with dust jacket, 192 pages.  Clean and tight, my bookplate, excellent condition (essentially like new).  Price $4.00 plus $4.00 S&H.

The De-Moralization of Society: From Victorian Virtues to Modern Values.  Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1995.  Hardback with dust jacket, 306 pages.  Clean and tight, my bookplate, excellent condition (essentially like new).  Price $4.00 plus $4.00 S&H.

The New History and the Old: Critical Essays and Reappraisals.  The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, Cambridge Mass., 1987.  Hardback with dust jacket, 209 pages.  Clean and tight, my bookplate, excellent condition (essentially like new).  Price $4.00 plus $4.00 S&H.

All three of the hardbacks have clear protective removable sleeves over the dust jackets.

If someone expresses an interest before I sell any of these titles, I will sell all of the above as a lot for $33.50 plus $8.00 S&H.
