About this Item

Complete set of three volumes, published in 1952, 1953, & 1955. Plates in all three volumes have drawn moisture and were previously stuck along edges. There are some edge tears on plates where they were separated, though not affecting images or text. Volume one is hard bound in cloth covers. 149 pages, plus 34 color plates. Volume two is soft bound in a red leatherette cover. 100 pages, plus 35 color plates. Covers of volume two are very brittle, chipped, and for the most part missing. Volume three is bound in paper wraps. 121 pages, plus fourteen color plates and seven black and white plates. A few plates are lose, but laid in place. Corners are bumped, and covers show a few tears at spine ends. Despite all faults, this set is complete and adequate as a working copy. Due to size and weight of this three volume set, extra charges will be assessed for priority and/or international shipping. Size: Oblong 4to. Bookseller Inventory # 032319

Store Description

With more than 25 years of experience buying and selling out-of-print, collectible, and rare books, maps, and ephemera, I am now doing business from my home at 60 Poplar Heights Rd.; Chanute, KS 66720; U.S.A. by appointment only. I offer a selection of more than 5000 books of all genre, as well as more than 1000 maps ranging from 15th century to early 20th. All inventory is hand selected and believed to be of significance for the collector, the reader, the historian or the general book lover. Historically, I have specialized in Kansas and regional history, but also maintain quality collections of Natural History, Theology, Americana, Railroad, Travel and Exploration, Medicine, Art, and Psychology, Neurology, and Psychiatry. Fine bindings, plate books, signed and inscribed items are also an important part of my collections. Smaller, though intriguing collections of other genre are also a part of my holdings. Appraisal, consultation, and collection development services are available. Please come and browse, talk books, and have a cup of coffee in a relaxed and book friendly environment. But for the convenience of both of us, please email or call first. Trade terms available and dealers are welcome.
