MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with Black and White Photographs. 320 pages GUY GAUNT’s infiltration of America's leadership changed the course of history. When the Great War began he was the British naval attaché in Washington, beached for recklessness at sea. Taking over a network of disaffected immigrants he thwarted all efforts by the powerful German-American establishment in the United States to stop America from supporting the Allies. Toughened by early life in the turbulent Australian goldfields, Guy built a career by playing outside the rules. He dodged his way up the ranks of the Royal Navy, married for money, snatched up a country estate, won a seat in Parliament and faked his disappearance to run off with the wife of the King's doctor. He was active again in World War II but the Whitehall mandarins took a cruel revenge ID291703

17 Logier, J.B. A System of The Science of Music and Practical Composition incidentally comprising what is usually understood by the term thorough bass
London J. Green 1827 1st Edition Hardback 
Quarto Size. Fair-good condition, Re-backed at some stage. Boards are worn and spine repaired yet again. Front hinge has cloth tape repairs applied. Very Scarce. A handwritten note is pasted to "FFEP". It reads " This is an original English edition of Mr J.B. Logier's famous work. It contains all the matter of importance as taught by the author in his world-wide schools. Many important remarks rules and examples of interest are altogetheromitted from the Modern edition, while errors of notation are too frequently found in the published examples, a fault however fro which the present volume is also not free. The excellent collection of "Themes" for students use, the "Manual" and Appendix thereto are entirely absent from the edition now extant, whicj therefore can scarecely be said to fairly represent the Logerian method, while it is apt to create a wrong impression on those who have been partly prejudiced by false statements, caused by jealousy against Logier's easy and progressive plan " Signed David Cope, Professor of music, Melbourne & Sydney, Australia. ID173868
