3 Areco, Victor Das Liebesleben der Zigeuner
Leipzig Leipziger Verlag G.m.b.H. 1912 First Edition Hardcover Very Good- 8vo 
xv, 367 pp. pages; Publisher's pattern printed paper-covered boards backed with brown cloth lettered in gilt. OCLC: 248446076 A sound copy internally, the spine is clean and presents a nice appearance on the shelf, but there is rubbing and wear to the edges of the boards. An interesting anthropological study of the gypsy, published as part of the series: "Das Liebesleben aller Zeiten und Voelker" (Band III). Published without a date specified in the years just before the first World War. [Booksellers who date this 1905 have merely pulled that date from the stern inscription which appears on the first leaf after the title page, from the Statistisches Landesbureau fuer Ungarn. Victor Areco claims in his preface that his study resulted from extensive fieldwork, vast personal experience and wide reading by the author in all the available gypsy literature. He writes of the sex lives, habits, practices and appearance of the Romani. Areco is almost rhapsodic in describing the magical allure of gypsy women (but he does state that there is a certain age at which these powers diminish starkly. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item.

Binding rubbed and worn; gilt dulled; small ink spot at spine. Illustrated with a frontispiece depicting the Bennett's house in New Haven, Illustrated titlepage, portraits of Dr. George Bennett and of his late wife Mary, an illustration of two men at Little Lillian's grave, five woodcut illustrations with quotes from the Book of Proverbs. Title as printed on the spine: Dr. Bennett's Married Life: caution to Husbands and Wives. OCLC: 40267176 This is the history of a very famous and very nasty divorce case in 19th century New Haven, CT. Mrs. Bennett accused her husband of all sorts of cruelties and wrong-doings, knitting a complex web of stories throughout the fabric of their social network which undermined his relationships with their friends, acquaintances and relatives. A neighbor Mr. Edson Sanford, though once under the sway of Mrs. Bennett's complaints, was eventually convinced that Mrs. Bennett was plotting and conniving to win suit against her husband. Sanford began to seek out the actual facts of the case and eventually testified on behalf of Dr. Bennett. Contrary to the picture Mrs. Bennett painted of her husband, evidence revealed a number of improprities on the part of Mrs. Bennett who received offers of marriage from her admirers should she succeed in divorcing the Doctor. She did succeed in winning the case, but was pilloried in later publications. A very sad tale indeed. This account proffering the defense of Dr. Bennett was published by him with an eye to earning money to pay the decreed alimony and additional financial support to his wife and children and to attempt to rehabilitate his reputation. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item.

17 Davenport, Donald H. ; Gerhard Alden Gesell FAMILIES AND THEIR LIFE INSURANCE A Study of 2132 Massachusetts Families and their Life Insurance Policies
Washington U.S. Government Printing Office 1940 First Edition Paperback Very Good 
Investigation of Concentration of Economic Power; 168 pages; Clean and tight in original orange printed wrappers, mildly faded at spine. A fascinating study which revealed that some lower income families were spending as much as 25% of their income on insurance premiums. A Study based on Data obtained in a Field Survey of Life Insurance Policyholders conducted in Greater Boston in 1939 as a Work Projects Administration Project Sponsored by the Securities and Exchange Commission and Made for the TNEC, Seventy-Sixth Congress, Third Session, Pursuant to Public Resolution No. 113 (Seventy-fifth Congress) Authorizing and Directing a Select Committee to Make a Full and Complete Study and Investigation with Respect to the Concentration of Economic Power In, and Financial Control Over, Production and Distribution of Goods and Services. Judge Gerhard Alden Gesell (1910 – 1993) began his career as a staff trial lawyer and later as adviser to Chairman William O. Douglas at the new Securities and Exchange Commission from 1935 to 1941. Gesell then entered private practice with Covington & Burling in Washington, where he specialized in antitrust and other corporate cases. While engaged in private practice, Gesell continued to serve the public sector. In 1945 and 1946, he served as Chief Assistant Counsel for the Democrats during the Pearl Harbor hearings. In 1962 he was a appointed Chairman of the President Kennedy's Committee on Equal Opportunity in the Armed Forces from 1962 to 1964. In 1967 Gesell was appointed to the United States District Court for DC by President Lyndon B. Johnson. He presided over several memorable cases. For example, in 1969 Judge Gesell declared that the District of Columbia's abortion statute was unconstitutional. In 1971, Judge Gesell was involved in the litigation surrounding the publication of The Pentagon Papers. He ruled that The Washington Post could continue to publish the series of articles about the Vietnam War based on the leaked secret study despite the Government's attempts to halt publication. During the Watergate investigations and litigation, Judge Gesell ruled that the dismissal of Archibald Cox as special prosecutor in the "Saturday night massacre" in October 1973 had been illegal. In the 1974 trial of John D. Ehrlichman, Judge Gesell sentenced him to 20 months to five years in prison for his role in the Watergate break-in. In 1989, a jury found Colonel North guilty of three of the 12 crimes he was charged with: obstructing Congress, destroying documents and receiving an illegal gratuity. Believing North had been carrying out orders from authorities above him, Gesell did not to send him to prison, but fined North $150,000, placed him on probation for two years, and assigned him community service.
