Book Description: An unusual collection of American typography as it appears on packaging and labels of classic tools, products, and other vintage and industrial items. Will appeal to anyone with nostalgia for Americana, bringing to life classic vintage American design the like of which is disappearing from popular consumption. Could be a valuable reference for design / typography students and should also appeal to anyone with an eye for vintage interiors / type / signage - so should work as an impulse-buy or gift book too. A unique visual reference of beautiful vintage American design and typography.

Book Description: The Buprestoidae, commonly known as Jewel Beetles, are the eighth largest family of beetles in the world. This Catalogue of the buprestids found in Australia documents four subfamilies, 24 tribes, 37 subtribes, 77 genera and 1205 species. Full taxonomic information is provided, with the original literature as well as museum data on the original type specimens. For all species known to occur in the Australian fauna, broad distributions are indicated, and, where possible, a short summary of known ecological data is given. References are given to key works that can help identify the fauna at all taxonomic levels. A set of four colour plates illustrates a representative of each subtribe in this often colourful group. Features * gives access to names, taxonomic and nomenclatural information, statistics, distributions of species and their ecology contains four pages of high quality colour illustrations * provides information on type data and whereabouts of type species * references the literature for keys and identification tools. * compiled and reviewed by world experts

Book Description: The importance of typed languages for building robust software systems is, by now, an undisputed fact. Years of research have led to languages with richly expressive, yet easy to use, type systems for high-level programming languages. Types provide not only a conceptual framework for language designers, but also a ord positive bene ts to the programmer, principally the ability to express and enforce levels of abstraction within a program. Early compilers for typed languages followed closely the methods used for their untyped counterparts. The role of types was limited to the earliest s- ges of compilation, and they were thereafter ignored during the remainder of the translation process. More recently, however, implementors have come to - cognize the importance of types during compilation and even for object code. Several advantages of types in compilation have been noted to date: { They support self-checking by the compiler. By tracking types during c- pilation it is possible for an internal type checker to detect translation errors at an early stage, greatly facilitating compiler development. { They support certi cation of object code. By extending types to the ge- rated object code, it becomes possible for a code user to ensure the basic integrity of that code by checking its type consistency before execution. { They support optimized data representations and calling conventions, even in the presence of modularity. By passing types at compile-, link-, and even run-time, it is possible to avoid compromises of data representation imposed by untyped compilation techniques.

Book Description: Water transport is a major feature of the traditional Chinese economy because of its magnitude and comparative efficiency. Yet this feature has all too often been ignored by scholars, with the notable exception of Japanese scholars. We cannot hope to gain any real conception of how the Chinese economy worked in the past, or works now, until we have a clearer picture of the circulation of men and commodities. In this circulation, water transport has been and is of crucial importance. Transport in Transition collects and translates notable Japanese articles to throw some light on the evolution of traditional junk shipping during a key transitional phase, 1900-1940, when it was absorbing the influences of various forms of modernization and on the eve of its major organizational transformation under the direction of the Communisty Party. The articles chosen concentrate on two main themes: the institutional organization of the shipping business, and the forms of ownership and operation. They will be of value to business historians and economic sociologists generally as well as to economic historians interested in transport. Several features of the Chinese economy are sharply illuminated. Most striking is the extent of regional variation. North and central Chinese shipping are shown to have differed both in their methods of operaiton and organization. Also noteworthy is the enduring strength of some traditional features of shipping operation and business practice. An unexpected feature of this endurance was the strength of traditional shipping in the face of steady competition from all forms of modern transport and from reputdely more efficient forms of business management.
