Item Description: The Bowen-Merrill Co., Indianapolis, 1897. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. R. B. Gruelle (illustrator). Two-tone green cloth with titles stamped in gilt. 90 pages with 6 illustrations. Matching dates (1891) to title and copyright pages, but 1897 to the publisher's catalogue at the rear. With a 30-line handwritten poem entitled "Spring" and the author's initials (JWR) to the verso of the front endpaper and the half-title. The poem is actually an early version of "When the Green Gits Back in the Trees". The poem would be added to later editions of this work, but does not appear in this volume. This version has "In the spring" in the first line, as opposed to "In spring" in the published version. Several words in this version were changed in the published version to reflect Riley's use of dialect. For example, Riley's use of the word "swet" in line 24 of the published version is "sweat" here. This copy does list "The Flying Islands of the Night" in the author's box. The publisher's catalogue has 21 pages, with the final entry for publications of the Indiana Historical Society. Riley's volumes are listed to "Armazindy" (1894). CONDITION: The cloth is lightly worn at the extremities, with a 1/4" scuff at the heel. The paper has mild toning, and the half-title is detached and laid in. It has two small chips which do not affect any of the lettering or writing. This page carries the last third of the handwritten poem and the author's initials. Former owner's name to the front endpaper; two small clippings affixed to the last page of the text. Otherwise a clean, tight copy. The half-title being detached is the probable result of handling the poem. Quite possibly a unique copy. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Signed by Author.

Sixteen pages with two additional unpaginated pages of facsimile documents. Tipped-in photograph (2-1/8" x 3-3/8") of Lincoln as frontispiece. Abraham Lincoln's account of the failed Hampton Roads peace conference of 3 February 1865. This copy signed by Stewart to Clark Prescott Bissett on the front endpaper: "C P Bissett Esq/ Compliments of/Judd Stewart/ Apr 28/11. Bissett's fireplace bookplate is present on the front pastedown. Presented to the State College of Washington by Mrs. A. W. Witherspoon as part of the Witherspoon/Bissett Collection with a tipped-in bookplate to the front pastedown identifying this title as a volume in the Lincoln Collection, and overstamped "Withdrawn". Small letter and number code in ink to front endpaper; six-digit stamp to foreword page; otherwise unmarked. The boards have moderate wear at the corners, lightly rubbed through on the uppers and heavier wear, with a bit of surface chipping, at the lowers. The boards have toned some, although the lettering is still bright. The front board has a small surface chip at the lower edge of the paper/cloth overlay and two faint scuffs near the right edge. The binding has a very slight separation between the second blank and the frontispiece. The scan provided may not show all the edgewear as the book is slightly larger than the scanner bed. A digital photograph failed to show any detail, including the lettering, and so was rejected. A scarce title with an impressive provenance. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Inscribed and Signed By Author. Bookseller Inventory # 54333

Bound in ribbed charcoal cloth with corners and backstrip in brown leather. Spine in five compartments, with titles and decorations stamped in gilt.

Item Description: Privately Published (both volumes), Rydal, Pennsylvania, 1931. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good (yearbook). No Jacket. Photographs (illustrator). Two scarce volumes concerning the Ogontz School for girls, now part of Penn State. 1) The Yearbook for 1931, which consists of 244 pages plus blanks for comments (unmarked) at the rear. 38 copies were produced, one for each of the 35 students and the three administrators. This is copy number 3. The book is octavo, 9-1/4" x 6-1/4", bound in green padded leather with a metal bas-relief of an angel affixed to the front cover (3" x 2-1/4"). Both pastedowns are in moire silk, and the internal hinges have been expertly strengthened (by the printer, not a later addition). The paper is high quality and shows no toning or foxing whatsoever. Each of the 38 recipients is pictured in a beautiful, slightly sepia photograph, all of which are hand-tipped into the book. In all there are 45 photographs, the remainder being group photos of various student activities (sports teams, class play, etc.) The first photograph in the yearbook is that of Abby A. Sutherland, head of the school and the book's dedicatee. She is also the author of the second book in this group. The leather is a bit scuffed at the spine and margins, but this is the only flaw. The signature of the book's owner, Beatrice Reimers, appears on the limitations page. The book is otherwise unmarked. 2) Bound in textured navy flexible cloth. Privately published. 189 pages. A plan of daily devotions for the girls at the Ogontz School. A near fine copy, with only the signature of Beatrice Reimers, Ogontz School, and "Crown" to the front free endpaper. The signatures in both books match, and as we bought these from the family estate, we know these signatures to be genuine. The cloth shows only a hint of wear. Hinges solid; binding square. A near fine copy. These books have been together for 80+ years, and we feel they should remain together. Both are quite scarce. A search of WorldCat turns up only two Ogontz school yearbooks, neither for this year, and no copies of the prayer book or the yearbook are currently in the internet marketplace. Beatrice Reimers married Charles McLaughlin of Omaha; her brother-in-law was the renowned Dr. Paul Burgess, a missionary and later book publisher whose work in Guatemala is still highly regarded.

Item Description: Charles Muquardt, Bruxelle, 1871. Full-Leather. Book Condition: Very Good-. Stroobant, Francois (illustrator). Bound in full blindstamped leather with titles in gilt. AEG; gilt dentelles. With thirty color lithographic plates, all present, with tissue guards. Undated, but the dedication is to Marie-Henriette Anne, wife of Leopold II. It is not clear whether they were married at the time this was issued. Christmas 1871 gift inscription, otherwise unmarked. The leather is edgeworn and rubbed with the corners through and rounded, and fraying (1/2") at the head and heel. A square glue stain to the rear pastedown indicates a possible bookplate removal. Beginning with plate 13, a 5" x 1/2" dampstain appears in the outer margin, gradually becoming wider as the plates progress, with plate 30 having the stain just into the image. This is a very light stain, and does not warp the paper. There is no damage to the images or titles. The hinges are solid and the binding is square.

Item Description: John Anderson & Co. / Skandinaven, Chicago, 1888. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Author Engraving (illustrator). Norwegian language. Bound in brick cloth with titles and decorations stamped in gilt and rules stamped in black. Copyright 1887; title page dated 1888. No additional printings. 224 pages. Decorated endpapers. With an engraving of the author as a frontispiece, which has 1.5" tear at the gutter. Inscribed and signed by the author on the second blank, with a later gift inscription from the wife of the original recipient to another party; neither are dated, but Langeland died in February, 1888, just weeks after this book was issued, so a very early authorial inscription. The cloth shows mild edgewear, with no frays or tears. Paper toning, as usual for Anderson's productions from this date, but the paper is not brittle or chipped. The front hinge has a 1" split at the head of the gutter; the rear is intact. The binding is pulled at the title page, but there is no mull exposed and no pages even beginning to come loose. With the bookplate of Norwegian-American collector Herman Gimmestad to the front pastedown. Langeland partnered with John Anderson and Iver Lawson to found the newspaper "Skandinaven" in 1866; he moved to found the paper "Amerika" in 1872. The two were quickly merged and went on to become quite influential in Norwegian-American publishing. The latter portion of this title comprises Langeland's autobiography. An uncommon volume, quite scarce with the author's signature. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Inscribed and Signed By Author. Bookseller Inventory # 124326

Fundinn Noregr Halfs Saga, Fridthjofs Saga Og: Rafn, Carl Christian

Item Description: Trykt Paa Forfatterens Forlag, Kjobenhavn, 1824. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Good. 1824 date on the title page. This is been improperly repaired at some time in the past. The book is bound in gray cloth with what to appear to be the original leather corners showing some scuffing and rubbing. The spine has been replaced with a type of tape which gives a poor imitation of fake leather. The hinges are taped with some old and poorly done binder tape so that the book does not open properly at the hinges, although the rest of the book opens easily and properly. The pages are clean and flexible. On a front blank endpaper is the bookplate of Rasmus Anderson and his signature with a 1878 date. On the inside of the front cover is the bookplate of Scandinavia collector Herman Gimmestad. Bookseller Inventory # 124458

Item Description: Harper & Brothers, New York, 1950. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good+. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good-. Morgan, Elemore (photography); Chase, John (endpapers) (illustrator). 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bound in green cloth with spine titles stamped in silver. Signed by the author, with "Very sincerely yours" (not personalized), and both illustrators (Morgan and Chase), on the half-title. John Chase has also added his signature caricature head with pipe above his signature. No additional printings. What is puzzling here is the lack of any of the standard Harper identifiers. There is no statement of edition, and no letter code, which should show a "Z" as the second letter. The dust jacket, which is price-clipped, carries the numbers 8020 on the front flap; 8021 on the rear flap. The book has no external blindstamping to indicate a book club edition (I can find no evidence that the Book of the Month Club even offered this book). All the titles listed on the author's page were published prior to 1950. So presumably what we have here is an anomaly. The cloth shows only very light edgewear with slight corner bumps and mild shelf slant. There are no marks other than the signatures. The dust wrapper has moderate edgewear, with several short tears (1/2" or less) but only one tiny chip at the lower front corner. It has been placed in mylar. We would enjoy hearing from anyone with a copy of this title with the Harper identifiers present. Uncommon with all three signatures. Signed by Author & Illustrators. Bookseller Inventory # 123771

Item Description: J. L. Read, Pittsburgh, 1848. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Good+. Second American Edition. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Bound in blindstamped brown cloth with spine titles stamped in gilt. Second American edition, stated. 336 pages. With a handwritten gift presentation to Delazon Smith from Henry Clay Dean, dated May 9, 1851, to the front free endpaper; also present is a later note, dated March 27, 1852, stating the book was "Bought at Bro Smith's sale" and signed C. C. Nourse. A scarce example of the signature of Henry Clay Dean, a theologian who was appointed Chaplain of the US Senate in 1855 and wrote a book on the crimes of the Civil War (1868), and whose library was destroyed in a fire at his home in Rebel's Cove, Missouri, sometime after 1871. Dean spent time in Iowa between 1850 and 1855; at some point he and Smith, also a theologian, became friends, and Dean warmly inscribed this book to him. Smith left Iowa in 1852 for Oregon, evidently selling off his library before the move. The cloth shows mild edgewear and rubbing, with some small deterioration at the heel. The upper portions of the covers retain a bit of dampspotting, and the corners are bumped. The upper page corners show a tidemark from page 300 to the end, with no damage to the text. There are spots of foxing throughout, heaviest at the prelims, but never so heavy as to obscure any text. Hinges solid. An uncommon edition that carries the signature of Henry Clay Dean.
