Item Description: 1867. [FINLEY, Martha]. Elsie Dinsmore. By Martha Farquharson. Original embossed purple cloth, gilt spine, housed in custom purple morocco-backed cloth drop case. New York: M.W. Dodd, 1867. First edition of the first Elsie Dinsmore book. "But two copies of this volume have come to the compiler's attention"-Blanck, Peter Parley to Penrod, p.26. Extremely rare in the trade. We can trace only one copy, this copy, to sell at auction. This copy sold at the Katherine de B. Parsons Sale in 1976 for $2,500. It sold again in 1992 for $7,150. Martha Finley is best known for her Elsie Dinsmore series, melodramatic and sentimental fiction focusing on Elsie's trials and the solace offered her by her religious beliefs. Originally written under the pseudonym "Martha Farquharson" (Gaelic for "Finley"), the series grew to 28 titles, published over a period of 38 years. Much has been written about the series, discussing everything from its tear- soaked heroine and her relationship with her father to its enduring popularity during the 19th century. In the early 1900s, Edward Stratemeyer, inspired by the remarkable lifespan of the Elsie series, hit upon the idea of books written by ghostwriters, which allowed him to churn out story upon story to the delight of his readership. It was under his stewardship that Nancy Drew, the Bobbsey Twins, and the Hardy Boys appeared. A fine copy of a rare book. Bookseller Inventory # 72198

Item Description: Random House, Inc., New York, NY, 1989. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Printing. eBay. Signed on title page in blue ink. Autograph obtained in person at the Reagan Presidental Library in Simi Valley, California. "My life really began when I married my husband," says Nancy Reagan, who in the 1950's happily gave up an acting career for a permanent role as the wife of Ronald Reagan and mother to their children. Her story actually begins in New York City, her birthplace. She was born on July 6, 1921. When the future First Lady was six, her mother, Edith--a stage actress--married Dr. Loyal Davis, a neurosurgeon. Dr. Davis adopted Nancy, and she grew up in Chicago. It was a happy time: summer camp, tennis, swimming, dancing. She received her formal education at Girls' Latin School and at Smith College in Massachusetts, where she majored in theater. Soon after graduation she became a professional actress. She toured with a road company, then landed a role on Broadway in the hit musical Lute Song. More parts followed. One performance drew an offer from Hollywood. Billed as Nancy Davis, she performed in 11 films from 1949 to 1956. Her first screen role was in Shadow on the Wall. Other releases included The Next Voice Your Hear and East Side, West Side. In her last movie, Hellcats of the Navy, she played opposite her husband. She had met Ronald Reagan in 1951, when he was president of the Screen Actors Guild. The following year they were married in a simple ceremony in Los Angeles in the Little Brown Church in the Valley. Mrs. Reagan soon retired from making movies so she "could be the wife I wanted to be.A woman's real happiness and real fulfillment come from within the home with her husband and children," she says. President and Mrs. Reagan have a daughter, Patricia Ann, and a son, Ronald Prescott. While her husband was Governor of California from 1967 to 1975, she worked with numerous charitable groups. She spent many hours visiting veterans, the elderly, and the emotionally and physically handicapped. These people continued to interest her as First Lady. She gave her support to the Foster Grandparent Program, the subject of her 1982 book, To Love A Child. Increasingly, she has concentrated on the fight against drug and alcohol abuse among young people. She visited prevention and rehabilitation centers, and in 1985 she held a conference at the White House for First Ladies of 17 countries to focus international attention on this problem. Mrs. Reagan shared her lifelong interest in the arts with the nation by using the Executive Mansion as a showcase for talented young performers in the PBS television series "In Performance at the White House." In her first year in the mansion she directed a major renovation of the second- and third-floor quarters. Now living in retirement in California, she continues to work on her campaign to teach children to "just say no" to drugs. In her book My Turn, published in 1989, she gives her own account of her life in the White House. Through the joys and sorrows of those days, including the assassination attempt on her husband, Nancy Reagan held fast to her belief in love, honesty, and selflessness. "The ideals have endured because they are right and are no less right today than yesterday." The biographies of the First Ladies on WhiteHouse.gov are from ¿The First Ladies of the United States of America,¿ by Allida Black. Copyright 2009 by the White House Historical Association.
