About this Item

first and only edition and printing (not stated); since the edition and printing are not specified, I assume this is a 1st in both categories; from the library of the linguist Glenn Gilbert with Gilbert's inscription on the ffep and some underlining and marginal notes, bookseller's pencilled price notation on front pastedown, small amount of shelfwear, else tight and square, rated VG; unclipped dj (printed price of $10) is enclosed in a transparent plastic cover, some rubbing and discoloration, rated Good; this rare book is a unique testament to the make-up of the people of Kansas and to their history; when the book first appeared, I was astonished at its detailed county-by-county description of the exact location and size of foreign-language groups in Kansas; nothing of the sort existed for the state of Texas where I had worked for years (1962 to 1970) recording the survival of German and other European immigrant languages; Carman's book was our guide in the Kansas German project carried out in 1967 and 1968; several of the students involved became well-known researchers and academicians in their later professional careers; this hard-to-find book would appeal to collectors of books on Kansas, and especially of the cultural heritage and ethnic language survival of the descendents of various immigrant groups in the state; cloth covers are green with gold lettering and the publisher's logo on the spine; dj is white with black lettering; 4to -- 11 3/8 inches tall, 330 numbered pages.

Store Description

Triple G Books is owned and operated by an emeritus professor of linguistics, who was also an ardent book collector over the period 1954 to 2007. Books for sale range from linguistics, pidgin & creole languages, sociolinguistics, anthropology, education, and comparative religion through modern first editions and German and Scandinavian books. A number of the books are valuable and hard to find, as for example a 1/2-leather-bound first edition of Alfred Russell Wallace's The Malay Archipelago (2 vols.), recently sold for presentation to the Mayor of London on his visit to Malaysia, and a first edition of H. G. Wells' The Time Machine, a novel of the 19th century pointing to a scary future, a continuing revelation to me. Triple G Books stands back of its books in every way.
