1. Metallica Club Dayz 1982 - 1984 (Large Print 16pt) - Bill Hale

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Metallica: The Club Dayz is a collection of photographs of the now legendary rock band Metallica, between 1982 and 1984. This book contains rare and exclusive photographs from six of the band's earliest performances including their first shows in San Francisco at The Stone and The Old Waldorf which featured the original lineup with Dave Mustaine (guitar) and Ron McGovney (bass), Cliff Burton's introductory gig with the band at The Stone, the last Metallica show with Dave Mustaine, and Kirk Hammett's Metallica debut. As chief photographer of Metal Rendezvous International, a groundbreaking heavy rock magazine that was published throughout the '80s, Bill Hale was given unlimited access to hang out with and photograph this then - fledgling metal band. His job at the time was to capture the band onstage and offstage and provide the magazine with unique photographs of Metallica, from the band showcasing their brazen live energy in concert, to unveiling some of their crazy and unpredictable backstage antics. Bill Hale was right there from the very beginning, capturing the band before, during and after their performances. He was at every one of their early Bay Area shows, without the safety of a photo pit, crushed among the savage crowd as they head - banged fearlessly to the music of their local heroes. Here, for the first time Bill Hale opens up his photo vault. Witness one of the greatest rock bands of all time during their embryonic stage. Influenced musically by the new breed of British metal yet epitomizing the punk rock attitude, Metallica's loud, snotty and don't five a fuck attitude is very evident in these photographs. Most of the photos in this book have never been published and many of the images have never before been revealed to the public. Metallica: The Club Dayz is a long lost chapter of this band's visual history.

3. Planet of the Apes An Unofficial Companion (Large Print 16pt) - David Hofstede

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The unauthorized history of one of the most popular movies of all time. Released in 1967, Planet of the Apes was a top - ten box - office hit that captivated audiences with its provocative vision of the future. Over the next decade it spawned four sequels, a television series, an animated series, two comic books, and hundreds of merchandise tie - ins. To some, the Apes projects were a campy, sci - fi blast, with colourful characters and delightfully over - the - top performances. But others took the stories more seriously, as allegories on man's struggles with such issues as race, intolerance, and protecting of the environment.
Though there hasn't been a new Apes movie since 1974, the popularity of the original films and TV series has endured and, if anything, expanded in the interim. When director Tim Burton's remake of the original Planet of the Apes is released in the summer of 2001, interest in the phenomenon is certain to be rekindled on a prodigious scale.
Planet of the Apes: An Unofficial Companion is a comprehensive look at all aspects of Planet of the Apes, featuring interviews, reviews, complete cast and credit information, and a behind - the - scenes look at what made this quirky science - fiction series an enduring classic.

5. Lost History The Enduring Legacy of Muslim Scientists, Thinkers, and Artists (Large Print 16pt) - Michael Hamilton Morgan

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Early Muslim culture set the foundation for the Rennaissance of Europe and for nearly every aspect of the modern world. In this age of conflict, ''Lost History'' provides a vital look at the Muslim world and its deep connection to all cultures. Unlike many histories, which address the noted Arab Golden Age of Baghdad, Persia, and Muslim Spain from 632 to 1258 AD and the fall of Baghdad, ''Lost History'' reveals the many 'golden ages' of Muslim thought, from Shiite Iran to Mughal India, to the 18th century. Engaging chapters introduce a contemporary accountant, obstetrician, civil engineer, or astrophysicist, all whose work is linked to early Muslim advancements.Artful flashbacks render page - turning accounts of such luminaries as Al Ma'mun, who founded Baghdad's international House of Wisdom from which came foundations for modern math, astronomy, chemistry, medicine, and literature; Al Khwarizmi, often considered the Father of Algebra, whose invention of algorithms makes possible cell phones today; revered Arab philospher Al Kindi, who wrote, 'nothing should be dearer to the seeker of truth than the truth itself;' Astronomer Al Manon, for whom is named a crater of the moon; the exiled Emir Abdal Rahman, who brought to Cordoba, Spain, irrigation systems and unique architecture; and the Syrian - born Al Nafis, who revealed that the blood flows from the heart, through the lungs, to the body and back again. Finally, readers discover that Omar Khayyam, well - loved poet of the Rubaiyat, was a mathematical wizard who calculated the length of a year to be 365.242 days (later calculated by atomic clocks to within millionths of a second). Writes the author: 'By recovering lost history together, maybe we can really get at the issues of today that will never be solved by force. Because if there is no other lesson to be drawn from ''Lost History'', it is that force rarely ever positively resolves issues of the spirit and the soul - whether in individuals, or in civilizations.'
