Item Description: London: Printed by John Nichols, at Cicero's Head, Red Lion Passage, Fleet-Street: And sold by Eliz. Newbery, the Corner of St. Paul's Church Yard, Ludgate-Street, 1793., 1793. Book Condition: Very good. - Octavo, 8-3/4 inches high by 5-1/4 inches wide. Two volumes bound in contemporary brown calf with gilt-titled red leather labels between raised bands on the spines. The covers are rubbed and scuffed and the corners and head and tail of the spines are bumped and worn. The leather is splitting along the joints of both volumes. The head and tail of the second volume's spine are chipped. The pagination of the first volume is as follows, pp. [i]-iv, [1]-584 plus a 13 page index and 1 page containing Dr. Johnson's 1777 anti-slavery argument in support of Joseph Knight. The second volume's pagination is as follows: pp. i-ii, [585]-1,220 plus a 16 page index. The set is illustrated with a total of 41 plates, including one folding, and a few woodcuts including title vignettes and the mastheads depicting St. John's Gate adorning the title page of each issue. The pages are lightly toned. There are occasional minor stains and the top corners of a few pages are bumped. Very good. Founded in 1731, "The Gentleman's Magazine" was the first periodical to use the word "magazine", from the French word for storehouse, in its title.The 41 plates illustrating these volumes include a portrait of the English astronomer Thomas Wright (1711-1786) with an engraving of a cylinder sundial; an illustration of Kedleston Church; the Chapel at Honiton; an engraving of Madagascar Ladies; Firefighting on board a ship; a View near Caplow Wood; a View at Matlock; Knaresborough from the Banks of the Nydde; a View of Tettsworth Church; West-Ham Abbey Gate; a Singular Group of Rocks near Matlock Bath; All Saints Church in Chesterfield; a Portrait of Bernard Gilpin; and the Gateway of King John's Palace.The content of this iconic periodical includes the will of King Louis XVI of France "The Last Will and Testament of His Late Most Christian Majesty" (page 173 of the February issue), signed "Louis, Baudrais" in type on December 21, 1792 from the Tower of the Temple in Paris where the King and his family had been confined. Under the heading "America" a column from Philadelphia on page 177 of that same February issue reports on the re-election of President George Washington. An article on page 201 of the March issue describes the guillotine by which King Louis XVI was executed "The instrument, by which the unfotunate king of France lately suffered, has been called La Guillotine, as is said, from the inventor of it : but it appears to have been the same which was formerly used in Scotland for the punishment of traitors, and there called a Maiden." The article is accompanied by an early woodcut of a guillotine. The person in the illustration is kneeling rather than lying prone as was the position used for "Lord Lovat's Maiden". Indeed, though attributed to Dr. Joseph-Ignace Guillotin who was to opposed the death penalty, instruments resembling the guillotine were in use as early as 1307. On page 267 of that same March issue is the report of the French National Convention's vote for the death of Louis XVI. An "Extract of a Letter from a Gentleman to his Friend at Calcutta" on page 671 of the July issue reports on how the son of Sir Hector Munro was "savaged" by a tiger. As reported by the gentleman who accompanied Mr. Downey, Lieut. Pyefinch and Munro onto the island to shoot deer, the company had sat down to have lunch when "Mr. Pyefinch and a black servant told us there was a fine deer within six yards of us. Mr. Downey and myself immediately jumped up to take our guns; mine was the nearest, and I had just laid hold of it when I heard a roar, like thunder, and saw an immense royal tiger spring on the unfortunate Munro, who was sitting down. In a moment his head was in the beast's mouth, and he rushed into the jungle with him, with as much ease as I could lift a kitten." Munro perished from his wounds. General Munro was highly regarded and the death of his son was commemorated by Staffordshire figurines and subsequent representations of the event. On page 697 of the Aug.

Marty Links is replying to Fridolf Johnson of American Artist magazine, thanking him for his help concerning pen points she was searching for in vain: "Perhaps I will have to learn to use a new pen point -- Oh, dear -- another adjustment." Johnson had remembered meeting her husband and she goes on to give him various family news. She concludes: "I would be proud to be written up in your fine magazine. But prouder still as a water colorist instead of just a cartoonist."Marty Links was born in Oakland, California and later moved to San Francisco with her family. Her only art training was a six-month attendance at San Francisco's Fashion Art Institute. After her drawings for a major fashion advertising campaign were rejected by an executive who told her 'This isn't what we want. These Kids look more like bobby-soxers", she came up with an idea for a cartoon character. In 1944, she launched her comic strip "Bobby Sox" about a teenager named Mimi, who later morphed into "Emmy Lou". Links was married to Alexander Arguello. Bookseller Inventory # 32486

Item Description: Zimapan, Hidalgo, Mexico, August 7, 1935., 1935. Book Condition: Very good. - sc - Six pages consisting of over 1,000 words penned on both sides of 3 sheets of 10-1/2 inch high by 8-1/8 inch wide buff-colored paper. In a lengthy letter James W. Armstrong, the author of this account, responds after reading a book which Mrs. McDougall has sent him. The book, Rosa E. King's "Tempest Over Mexico" which had just been published that year, has stirred up Armstrong's memories and feelings. He doesn't view the "rebels" (The Liberation Army of the South, known as the Zapatistas) with as much fondness "She rather idealizes Zapata, though strangely she makes no mention of his brother who accompanied him all the time, and glosses over the terrible cruelty of the Zapatists." He goes on to describe, at length, an attack by the Zapatistas "When the town was attacked by the rebels for the first time, I had advance information from one of the rebel sympathizers who worked for us, so was not surprised when a group surrounded the town and demanded that the small garrison surrender or else the place would be taken by 'sangre y fuego' - 'blood and fire!' The town authorities decided to resist and the women and children of the principal families were gathered into the big house." He goes on to describe that night and the "all-day attack" which followed until "through their scouts the rebels received word that a relief column was coming, so they retired and that unpleasant spell was over." Describing a subsequent attack, he writes of joining the "Jefe Politico, a very good friend" who'd organized a little band of volunteers to escort the women as they would all try to reach the next town. The group was overtaken and, to protect the women, surrendered to the Zapatistas. "As a foreigner, I was deputed to approach with a white flag and arrange terms. One of the women gave me her white petticoat to flaunt and up the hill I went." Signed "Jas. H. Armstrong". The pages are folded once horizontally and twice vertically for mailing. There is some minor soiling with creasing to the right edge. Very good. A very entertaining first hand account of an event during the Mexican Revolution.The writer, James H. Armstrong was an American superintendent of the Hidalgo Copper Mining & Smelting Company in Zimapan, Hildago. Bookseller Inventory # 32474
