Looking for an old textbook.

My seventh grade French textbook had particularly charming illustrations. I don't remember the title of the book or what the cover looked like, but I'd know the illustrations if I saw them. They were mostly, if not entirely, in black-and-white and featured young people doing ordinary things like going to the beach. This textbook was used in about 1989 in a public school in southern New Hampshire. Is there any way of finding out more about it or perhaps buying a copy online? I suppose I could ask the school but I'd rather not.

help a textbook taught me something relevant and amusing once

I'm looking for an essay I read in a textbook. This would've been in the late 90s and it was a middle school Literature textbook. The essay was about writing. I remember that it included a bit about how you can't ask writers about writing for the same reason you can't ask the sea about itself (it will just gurgle at you). It also had a bit about breaking the rules when writing, talking about how writing guides tell you never to open a story with dialogue but then gave an example of a classic novel that opened with dialogue in French.

Does anybody have any experiences using Ebooks for graduate level study? In particular Kindle books or books from Coursemart? Making citations?

I'm going to be taking a few graduate courses online while traveling abroad. I need three textbooks. All three are available for the Kindle through Amazon. Only two are available through Coursemart.

How important is it that a book is copyright registered in my name?

I write textbooks but my publisher wants to switch from copyright being registered in my name, to it being in their name. All over aspects of the contract have stayed the same, and I still grant them exclusive license over the content. Rights to the book still revert to me should the book go out of print. But how important is it that the copyright registration be in my name, in reality?

"Say nothing that is not entirely true"

I have a dim memory of a comment by the authors of a science textbook, stating that they had attempted to avoid making any statements that were not entirely true, and describing how difficult this had been. My attempts to find the quotation with Google, the Oxford Dictionary of Scientific Quotations, and Gaither’s Dictionary of Scientific Quotations have all failed. It was probably an undergraduate textbook in physics, chemistry or biology.

Name this Mathematics Textbook series

Recently, someone described a 10-volume mathematics textbook series to me. The books were written by a single author, an engineer with a name that sounded Greek, and came with full worked solutions to every single problem, making them ideal for self study. Unfortunately, they could not remember its title, and my attempts to find it with Google and Amazon have failed. Has anyone come across this series?

Courting Ellen West

“The Case of Ellen West” was published by the Swiss psychiatrist, Ludwig Binswanger, in 1944–1945 and (as far as I can tell) appeared in English translation in 1958. Anyone know where I can get a copy? Usual search suspects are turning up only the Carl Rogers article, "Ellen West and Loneliness", in the Review of Existential Psychology and Psychiatry (which I've requested via interlibrary loan) and some other scholarly pubs on Rogers (behind the usual pay walls).
