3 George L Hersey The Evolution of Allure: Sexual Selection from the Medici Venus to the Incred.

Bright hardcover in dust jacket. A clean copy, with no marks or flaws; no sign of wear. 236 pages. The beauty of the human body has found a daring beholder in art historian George Hersey, who for the first time brings modern Darwinian theories of sexual selection (mate competition, attractor manipulation, and the like) into the history of art. "The Evolution of Allure" shows how Western art has channeled mate choice, exploiting the cosmetics, clothes, muscles, organs, and ornaments that showcase the body.

5 Himmelfarb, Gertrude Poverty And Compassion: The Moral Imagination of the Late Victorians
Knopf 1991 0679401199 / 9780679401193 Hardcover As new As new 
First Printing. Hardcover in glossy dust jacket. No marks or flaws; no sign of wear. 475 pages.

On the book's publication, Library Journal said the author "is the reigning authority on Victorian social thought... She examines Charles Booth and Beatrice Webb, the Salvation Army and the Fabians, the development of concepts such as unemployment and the poverty line. But she also considers both historians' attitudes toward Victorian thought and its relevance to our present dilemmas. A masterful and incisive study and highly readable; essential for Victorian specialists, those interested in the history of social thought, and collections serving either."
