Edited By Bell, Steve
In the quest for ever more demanding goals, conquering the highest summit on each of the seven continents has for many become the ultimate feat. This book provides a fascinating insight into the mountains themselves, the nature of the challenge and the extraordinary people who have climbed all seven. Mountain essays reveal the character of each summit and describe routes and historic ascents. The majority of the book comprises a unique collection of personal diaries and accounts, written by seven summiteers themselves, that detail the exhilarating and harrowing experiences of climbers ensnared by the dream and stretched to the limits. Seven Summits captures the drama, the grit and the beauty of a global challenge that has inspired mountaineers and armchair enthusiasts alike. - The only complete and fully illustrated record of this great mountaineering challenge - Stunning, evocative colour photography and fascinating real-life stories convey the endeavour, the pain and the glory of this renowned climbing feat - Contains a unique collection of diaries written by both foremost mountaineers and daring amateurs from around the world. Slight crease to top edge of D/J. 144pp.

Amatangelo, Sue
With a patio, porch, or windowsill, any budding gardener can bring the outdoors in using this guide to growing in containers. Arrangements begin simply, with one type of plant in a decorative container. The projects move on to combinations of two plants, then on to more complex pots involving three or more plants. Design principles including color, texture, height, and depth are considered, and ideas for themed containers are included for holidays and other festive occasions. Species range from the tried-and-true garden varieties, such as impatiens and petunias, to newer plants on the market, such as a striking red ornamental millet. Some of the arrangements are even meant to go from container to garden plot. The planter plans include detailed photographs, diagrams, and instructions on getting the very best results from container gardening, for lasting natural beauty in any space. 275pp. N.B. Bottom corners of boards slightly bumped. Head of spine slightly torn

Hughes, Judith M.
The science of mind has been plagued by intractable philosophical puzzles, chief among them the distortions of memory and the relation between mind and body. Sigmund Freud's clinical practice forced him to grapple with these problems, and out of that struggle psychoanalysis emerged. "From Freud's Consulting Room" charts the development of his ideas through his clinical work, the successes and failures of his most dramatic and significant case histories, and the creation of a discipline recognizably distinct from its neighbours. In Freud's encounters with hysterical patients, the mind-body problem could not be set aside. Through the case of Anna O., Emmy von N., Elisabeth von R., Dora, and Little Hans, he rethought that problem, as Hughes demonstrates, in terms of psychosexuality. When he tried to sort out the value of memories, with Dora and Little Hans as well as with the Rat Man and the Wolf Man, Freud reintroduced psychosexuality and elaborated the Oedipus complex. Hughes also traces the evolution of Freud's conception of the analytic situation and of the centrality of transference, again through the clinical material, including the case of Freud himself, who at one point figured as his own "chief patient". Moving from case to case, Hughes has coaxed them into telling a coherent story. Her text leads the reader to see the origins and development of psychoanalysis from a new perspective.Previous owner's signature on ffep.235pp.
