The Discovery of Noahs Ark, Fasold, David
18 Fasold, David The Discovery of Noahs Ark
London Sidgwick & Jackson 1990 0283060069 / 9780283060069 First Edition Fine Fine Book 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
First edition. Unclipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. No marks or inscriptions. Gilt lettering to spine. The discovery of Noah's Ark is one of the greatest archaeological finds of the 20th century, solving a mystery that has puzzled scientists for many centuries. The story of the clues which led to its detection - not on Mount Ararat, as had been thought, but on Mount Mahser Dagi (the Doomsday Mountain) some 17 miles to the south - is astonishing, and the material uncovered reveals much about life in the Middle East thousands of years BC. David Fasold headed one of the last teams to be allowed excavation rights in Turkey, and he dedicated years of his life and considerable sums of his own money to searching for the Ark. This book recounts the story of his quest and the eventual realization that he had succeeded when the dimensions of his find matched up exactly to those given in the Book of Genesis. Drilling samples subsequently revealed that the boat had not been made of wood, as was commonly supposed, but of reed and a kind of cement. Fasold's site has now been sealed off and officially declared the landing place of Noah's Ark by the Turkish Government. Nice and clean internally and externally. First edition means first edition, first printing, unless otherwise clearly stated.

The Gypsies, Fraser, Angus
19 Fraser, Angus The Gypsies
London Blackwell 1993 0631159673 / 9780631159674 Reprint Hardcover Near Fine Near Fine Book 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Reprint edition. Unclipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. No marks or inscriptions. Gilt lettering to spine. Since their unexplained appearance in Europe over nine centuries ago, the Gypsies have doggedly refused to fall in with conventional settled life. From the Balkans they gradually spread over the entire continent. When, in the 15th century, they knocked at the gates of Western Europe in the guise of pilgrims, they aroused intense curiosity as well as suspicion, and theories proliferated about their provenance. They remain the people whose culture and customs are beset with misunderstanding, and to cling to their distinct identity in the teeth of persistent rejection and pressure to conform. This book describes their history. Nice and clean internally and externally. First edition means first edition, first printing, unless otherwise clearly stated.
