Stonehenge Decoded - Gerald S Hawkins. Published by Doubleday, Garden City, NY 1965

Doubleday & Company, 1965. First.

"This brilliant and readable study challenges the notion that the 3500-year-old Stonehenge was a Druid temple and concludes that it was actually a sophisticated astronomical observatory -- in fact a Neolithic computer designed to predict eclipses"

Blue covers with brown spine, map endpapers, 202 pp., 23 photos, 15 drawings and charts. Book is in very good to excellent condition with only slightly bumped corners. Interior is bright and clean and intact. Jacket shows some minor wear on the top edge and bumps to the corners. Overall Jacket is very good for the age.

Essays that tell the story of Scandinavian Americans from the
earliest Norse voyages to the date of publication, although
only Norwegians, Danes, and Swedes are included. The social
life, churches and synods, educational institutions and
individual settlements are treated in considerable detail,
with many individuals' names mentioned.

Churches are particularly well represented, and their
histories discussed in detail.

There is an index of biographies included in this book, an
index of portrait photographs, and a thirty-page annotated
bibliography of Scandinavian historical literature in
America. The latter includes biographies, county histories,
histories of educational and other institutions, tours of
Scandinavian settlements in America, ethnic newspapers, and
collections of advertisements for Scandinavian-American
businesses.

Boer and Britisher in South Africa

A History of the Boer-British War and the Wars for United South Africa, Together With Biographies, of the Great Men Who Made the History of South Africa

by John Ormond Neville - Published 1900 by Thompson & Thomas in Chicago

"This book is a valuable account of the historical, political and social developments of South Africa, as they have presented themselves to the world, from the beginning of the differences between the Boer and the Britisher; and further, I have been guided by the firm resolve to make all deductions from absolute facts, thereby assuring a truthful portrayal of the current events, and an unbiased and unprejudiced statement of all the important occurrences from the settlement of the Dutch at the Cape down to the present day. The people of South Africa are often judged wrongly, especially in England, where every one cannot rise to the unprejudiced point of view of the great Gladstone, who could appreciate the worth of these people, who, to preserve their freedom, left their former homes in Cape Colony and strove for an independent existence in the desolate, wild country inhabited only by hostile savages. In the beginning of their struggle for freedom the inhabitants of both the South African Republics, almost without exception, belonged to different Protestant communities. Though not, of course, without faults and prejudices as is always the case with people who live in seclusion they were generally men of severe morality, distinguished for the simplicity of their customs and the purity of their family life."

Cover shows very minor corner wear as does spine. Very good condition but for the Title page which is loose from the book 3/4" way up. Otherwise attached. The rest of the book is tight and intact. This is a very nice book for your collection. Contents clean, binding of pages sturdy. Really nice copy of this exceptional title.
