The 12th Planet
Author: Zecharia Sitchin
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Over the years, startling evidence has been unearthed, challenging established notions of the origins of Earth and life on it, and suggesting the existence of a superior race of beings who once inhabited our world. The product of thirty years of intensive research, The 12th Planet is the first book in Zecharia Sitchin's prophetic Earth Chronicles series--a revolutionary body of work that offers indisputable documentary proof of humanity's extraterrestrial forefathers. Travelers from the stars, they arrived eons ago, and planted the genetic seed that would ultimately blossom into a remarkable species...called Man. The 12th Planet brings to life the Sumerian civilization, presenting millennia-old evidence of the existence of Nibiru, the home planet of the Anunnaki, and of the landings of the Anunnaki on Earth every 3,600 years, and reveals a complete history of the solar system as told by these early visitors from another planet. Zecharia Sitchin's Earth Chronicles series, with millions of copies sold worldwide, deal with the history and prehistory of Earth and humankind. Each book in the series is based upon information written on clay tablets by the ancient civilizations of the Near East. The series is offered here, for the first time, in highly readable, hardbound collector's editions with enhanced maps and diagrams.

The Living Goddesses
Author: Marija Gimbutas, Miriam Robbins Dexter
Publisher: Univ of California Press
"The quintessence of decades of research. . . . It excellently illustrates the various manifestations of the Goddess in the Minoan world and in ancient Greece, among the Etruscans and the Basques, in Celtic, Germanic, and Baltic religion. . . . For sure, the ideas of Marija Gimbutas about the 'Old European' civilization are controversial, but they are built on strong arguments and valid bases, which make it indispensable for her dissident colleagues to take heed of her writings."--Edgar Polomé, Editor of the Journal of Indo-European Studies "The overall view of 'Old Europe' Marija Gimbutas presents is not only readable but spellbinding. . . . Archaeological findings, folklore, and historical texts, including images and texts from ancient Greece and the ancient Near East, are drawn on, and together they produce a coherent, seamless imagery."--Kees Bolle, University of California, Los Angeles

La Contessa Di Karolystria
Author: Antonio Ghislanzoni
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
Antonio Ghislanzoni, nato a Barco di Maggianico (Lecco) il 25 novembre 1824, � meglio noto come autore di numerosissimi libretti per opere liriche tra cui "Aida" e "La forza del destino" di Giuseppe Verdi. Personalit� eclettica: baritono egli stesso fino al 1856, nonch� ex seminarista cacciato per cattiva condotta, stimolato dalle idee di Mazzini, nel 1848 dirige a Milano diversi giornali repubblicani; a causa delle sue idee fu anche arrestato dai francesi e brevemente detenuto in Corsica. Muore a Caprino Bergamasco il 16 luglio 1893."La contessa di Karolystria" � definito dallo stesso autore "il pi� balzano, il pi� strampalato de' miei racconti", e in effetti altro non � che una storia divertente piena di colpi di scena senza pretesa di avere "messaggi" da trasmettere. La trama � presto detta: il visconte d'Aguilar -personaggio in cui potremmo scorgere lo stesso autore- si lascia coinvolgere nel turbine di avventure in cui viene trascinato per soccorrere la contessa di Karolystria e brillantemente, tra mille peripezie, riesce cavarla dai guai e ad aprirle un nuovo futuro. - Riccardo.
