Moscow: Raduga Publishers, 1985. English Translation. Glossy Pictorial Boards. Very Good. Victor Kirillov. Translated from the Russian by Miriam Katz. Narration of the true story about Alyosha Kuznetsov, a 15 yr old boy from Moscow who fell in battle in 1917 at the time of the October Revolution in Russia. Illustrated by Victor Kirillov. Author's Foreword: “Until quite recently very little was known about Alyosha Kuznetsov, a 15-year-old Moscow boy who fell in battle in 1917 at the time of the October Revolution in Russia. Alyosha and his sister Lena were members of a mobile first- aid group—a “alying squad”. The boy was never in one spot for long, he always hastened to the most dangerous places—the barricades manned by volunteers fighting the counter-revolu¬tionary White Guard. Not everyone on the barricades even knew Alyosha’s proper name. They just called him “Kuznechik”—Grasshopper—a pun on his surname, Kuznetsov. The boy actully did appear to make flying leaps from one barricade to another, so quickly did he get around. The brother and sister gave first aid to many wounded fighters. On October 28 they were both hit by enemy bullets on Osto- zhenka (now Metrostroyevskaya Street), one of the streets where the heaviest battles were fought. For a long time it was thought that the Kuznetsovs had both been killed—their death was mentioned in the memoirs of parti¬cipants in those battles. However, although Alyosha did die of his wounds, his sister Yelena (Lena) recovered, and after the Revolution went back to the Givartovsky Testile Mill, where she had worked before. Today this enterprise is the Thaelmann Lace Curtain Factory. Yelena Kuznetsova worked there for many years, the head of a work team in a leading section. When our country was exposed to grim trials, when the Nazis were straining to capture Moscow, Yelena was a roof guard, one of those who watched out for incendiary bombs dropped by the Nazis: she dug anti-tank ditches and spent many sleepless nights in a hospital caring for wounded soldiers. She was awarded the medals For the Defence of Moscow and For Labour Valour in the Great Patriotic War. Yelena Kuznetsova worked at the factory until 1950 and then retired on pension. She passed away at the beginning of the 1970s. A group of Young Pathfinders from Moscow School No. 588 found Yelena Kuznetsova a short time before her death. If not for them we might have known nothing else about Alyosha but that he “fell in battle together with his sister.” The following historical narrative is based, to a great extent, on the information imparted by Yelena Kuznetsova. The name of the young first-aid orderly Alyosha Kuznetsov has been entered for all time into the Book of Honour of the All-Union Young Pioneer Organisation (the Soviet Children’s Organisation).” [see image], Raduga Publishers, 1985, London a.o: BCA.

Despite making few forays beyond the arts, his versatility in the disciplines he took up was of such a high order that he is often considered a contender for the title of the archetypal Renaissance man, along with fellow Italian Leonardo da Vinci. Michelangelo was considered the greatest living artist in his lifetime, and ever since then he has been held to be one of the greatest artists of all time. A number of his works in painting, sculpture, and architecture rank among the most famous in existence. His output in every field during his long life was prodigious; when the sheer volume of correspondence, sketches, and reminiscences that survive is also taken into account, he is the best-documented artist of the 16th century. Two of his best-known works, the Pietà and David, were sculpted before he turned thirty. Despite his low opinion of painting, Michelangelo also created two of the most influential works in fresco in the history of Western art: the scenes from Genesis on the ceiling and The Last Judgment on the altar wall of the Sistine Chapel in Rome. As an architect, Michelangelo pioneered the Mannerist style at the Laurentian Library. At 74 he succeeded Antonio da Sangallo the Younger as the architect of St. Peter's Basilica. Michelangelo transformed the plan, the western end being finished to Michelangelo's design, the dome being completed after his death with some modification. In a demonstration of Michelangelo's unique standing, he was the first Western artist whose biography was published while he was alive. Two biographies were published of him during his lifetime; one of them, by Giorgio Vasari, proposed that he was the pinnacle of all artistic achievement since the beginning of the Renaissance, a viewpoint that continued to have currency in art history for centuries. In his lifetime he was also often called Il Divino ("the divine one"). One of the qualities most admired by his contemporaries was his terribilità, a sense of awe-inspiring grandeur, and it was the attempts of subsequent artists to imitate Michelangelo's impassioned and highly personal style that resulted in Mannerism, the next major movement in Western art after the High Renaissance.

Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.6in. x 0.9in.The last Indian raid in Iowa The winter of 1856-7 was a particularly severe one in Iowa, with prolonged heavy snowfall across the region. In March 1857 a chronic shortage of game and other food persuaded the renegade Santee Sioux leader, Scarlet Point, to lead a band of fourteen warriors into the widely separated settlements near the Okoboji and Spirit Lakes, in north western part of the state close to the Minnesota border. Whether or not the violence that followed could have been avoided is unclear, but certainly the Indians had enough experience to know that they could expect little charity from the settlers who had treated them harshly in the recent past. The raid resulted in the deaths of some 35-40 pioneer settlers as the Indians plundered their properties for provisions. The war party also took prisoners-three married women and a girl-whom they dragged northwards into the wilderness. A relief party from Fort Dodge, hampered by the extreme weather failed to defend the settlements and another from Fort Ridgely was unable to catch up to the fugitives. The youngest of the captives was fourteen year old Abie Gardner. She was held prisoner until the summer months of 1857 before being freed on payment of ransom. Two of the adult women were murdered but Margaret Ann Marble, the last of them, was also ransomed. This was the last Indian raid on settlers in Iowa though dissatisfaction among the Sioux was to lead to the Sioux Uprising and far greater bloodshed. Abie Gardner eventually married and, after a period away from her family home, returned to live in the cabin from which she was abducted and from there sold her book about the raid, her capture and ordeal to interested visitors.

Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.1in. x 0.8in.World War I has passed from living memory into the history books, receding far enough into the distance to provide a genealogical challenge. In order to reconstruct the lives and locate the records of those who served, fought, volunteered, or were conscripted, we must rely on a vast but relatively unknown body of resources. Counting all combatants, the number of men who served in the Great War runs into the millions; needless to say, finding records on them in the two dozen countries that participated in the war is a daunting and laborious task--now made infinitely simpler with the publication of this magnificent guide to WWI service records. The only book of its kind, this ambitious effort to catalogue service records and related sources is international in scope, covering the soldiers of all countries participating in the war, from Britain, Germany, and France, to Russia, Canada, and the U. S. ; and from India, Australia, and Japan, to South Africa and Brazil! This is a key to a motherlode of genealogical data and should grow in value as our need for WWI-era information increases. Right now it represents a whole new path in genealogical research, with fresh possibilities and discoveries at every turn. The first part of the book is designed to provide background on the organization of the military in 1914, the order of battle, how to use the records, and a general time-line of events, focusing on 1914 to 1918. The second part concentrates on the combatants, describing each countrys armed forces, conscription history, and its military and naval records, and, to the greatest extent possible, their location. (Records that have been microfilmed and are available worldwide through the Family History Library System of the LDS Church are identified by roll number. ) The third part of the book describes casualty lists and POW records, and provides a table showing changes in place names, while the final section of the book, an appendix, contains a glossary of abbreviations, Internet addresses, and a select bibliography of books in English. The disposition of personnel files varies from country to country, depending on privacy laws and archival practices. In some cases documents are held by a military archive, in others by a national repository. In a few cases, such as Great Britain, service files are in the process of being transferred from one agency to another. Whatever their disposition--and it is an important aim of this book to identify their disposition--the records covered here fall under the following headings: draft records, personnel papers, unit records, embarkation lists, death records and casualty reports, military parish registers, regimental returns, medal lists, entitlement lists, hospital registers, pension records, and diaries. A particularly useful section of the book, Research Tips, describes the general organization of military records, the organization of those records in specific countries, and the condition and comprehensiveness of the records. With help from dozens of individuals and institutions throughout the world, in particular from libraries such as the Army Pentagon Library, the Navy Department Library, the Library of Congress, the Family History Library, the Hoover Institute (Stanford University), the Public Record Office (England), and the national archives of at least a dozen countries, the author has managed to compile a guide to WWI service records that is not only unique but totally comprehensive. She has taken a mountain of material and cut it down to size, transforming an unwieldy body of sources into a streamlined archive. Her pioneering efforts will save researchers untold hours of toil, adding limbs to family trees and providing opportunities for further research. This item ships from multiple locations.

Living at home with her mother, aunt, and grandmother, Evelyn is still haunted by the death of her younger brother James in the First World War. Therefore, when the doorbell rings late one night and a woman appears claiming to have mothered Jamess child, Evelyns world is turned upside down. Evelyn distrusts Meredith at first, but she also finds that this new arrival challenges her work-obsessed lifestyle. So far her legal career has not set the world alight. But then two cases arise that make Evelyn realize that perhaps she can make a difference. The first concerns a woman called Leah Marchant, whose children have been taken away from her simply because she is poor. In the second case, Stephen Wheelera former acquaintance of Daniel Breen, her bosshas been charged with murdering his own wife. It is clear to Breen and Evelyn that Wheeler is innocent but he wont talk. After being humiliated in court, Evelyn is approached by the dashing lawyer Nicholas Thorne. She is needled by his privileged background and old-fashioned attitudes, but, despite being engaged, he cannot seem to resist sparring with this feisty young female. In the meantime, Meredith makes an earth-shattering accusation about James. With the Wheeler case coming to a head and her heart in limbo, Evelyn takes matters into her own hands.

His letters to his father, which are preserved at Melbourne, are full of interest, and couched in terms of the highest regard. His descriptions of the times are novel and interesting, for there was scarcely a particle of news, either political or military, which he did not transmit to Melbourne, and scarcely any man of rank or standing in Parliament who, in some way or other, did not come within reach of his pen. His letters on business are simple, plain, and easy of construction, becoming a man of business, and yet he must have been a polished scholar, as his frequent quotations from the best Greek and Latin authors, and allusions to them, abundantly testify. In a letter of April 17th, 1641, he writes of Lord Straffords trial: --The King is every day present at the trial, but looks pale and dejected. --The Earl of btraffords chief hope it in the lords; but if the bill pass that house, there will be danger of his Majesties assent. --The Earl of Strafford looks well and chearfully. --Mr. Lane declared this day, that he had never advised with his council concerning any matter of fact, and that the law he had offered was wholly his own--doubtless he hath made a very able defence of himself, and his personal worth is very hardlye to be equalled.
