New York: Funk & Wagnalls Co. 1953. Stated 79th printing. Blue & silver dust jacket on dark blue cloth hardcover with silver gilt title front cover and spine. Book measures 9-1/2" tall x 6-1/2" wide. 658 pp. This book is an interesting look into common 'social' practices updated for the 1950s. It should be a mandatory read for all adolescent / teen girls to show them 'how it was' or how thing have changed. This book was most likely one major reason for the 1960's feminism movements. It is hilarious and sad at the same time - especially the chapters 'Modern Man and Girl', 'Engagements' and 'Preparations for their future home...'. It is 658 pages of women's suppression, suffrage, and should be read as such. Book in good condition with flaws noted: corners bumped and rubbed; head and tail of spine rubbed. Rear 100+ pages or so have staining on fore edges; does not extend inwards more than 1/16". Book overall clean and tight in a complete binding. DUST JACKET: chipped and small tears at top and bottom. 1-1/2" diagonal tear on front cover. 2" tear on back cover. Non-price clipped. Slight wear to silver portions of DJ.

227 Rees, Thomas Egypt and the Holy Land Today
Springfield, Il. State Register Company 1922 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good Book 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾ Signed by Author(s)
Springfield, Illinois: State Register Company. 1st edition, printing 1922. Dark green cloth hardcover, in no DJ. Measures 8" tall x 5-1/2" wide. 404 pp. with one page of advertisements in the back. Signed in pen on the half-title page: "With Cordial Regards of the Author, Thomas Rees". A signed, 1st edition / 1st printing copy of this book - SIGNED BOLDLY IN THE BOOK! Not on a bookplate or sticker. Contains sixteen full page black & white pictures of classical locations in Egypt and the Holy Land. One will remember on November 4, 1922 Howard Carter discovered the undisturbed tomb of Tutankhamun's (subsequently designated KV62), by far the best preserved and most intact pharaonic tomb ever found in the Valley of the Kings. This book was published prior to that wonderful find, and therefore does not cover that discovery, but more general topics: Chapter 1: Voyaging Eastward; Chapter 2: On the Mediterranean; Chapter 3: The Aligerian Pirates; Chapter 4: The Riviera to Egypt; Chapter 5: At Alexandria; Chapter 6: On the Nile; Chapter 7: Land of the Pharaohs; Chapter 8: Fighting Gamines; Chapter 9: Temples and Tombs; Chapter 10: Wonders of Egypt; Chapter 11: The Shifting Sands; Chapter 12: A City of Contrasts; Chapter 13: Shopping in Cairo; Chapter 14: Social Life in Egypt; Chapter 15: Grand Opera; Chapter 16: Sports and Pastimes; Chapter 17: Modern Structures; Chapter 18: The Past and Present; Chapter 19: The Way to Jerusalem; Chapter 20: The Jaffa Gate; Chapter 21: The Holy City; Chapter 22: Dolorosa; Chapter 23: Round About Jerusalem; Chapter 24: Bethlehem of Judea; Chapter 25: The Mount of Olives; Chapter 26: The Road to Jericho; Chapter 27: On Jordan's Banks; Chapter 28: And Now Through Italy; Chapter 29: A Night in a "Vaghen Leetz"; Chapter 30: Old Nuremberg; Chapter 31: Carillons and Chimes; Chapter 32: Four Famous Carillons; Chapter 33: The Art of Bell Music; Chapter 34: A Queen's Holiday; Chapter 35: In Paris Again; Chapter 36: Battlefields of France; Chapter 37: Home Again. Note: It has come to my attention of one other seller has a signed copy available on the web that states the book is an 'Author's Written Autograph Edition' with that note on the half-title page, where the signature is located. This edition of the book - the first edition / first printing, does not mention the 'Author's Written Autograph Edition' note anywhere in the book. Book is in very good condition with flaws noted: Corners bumped and rubbed. Gilt title on cover bright, gilt title on spine worn but still readable. Previous owner's name written in script pen on ffep. Front gutter starting on second blank page, one page before half-title (and signature page).

Image in very good condition with flaws noted: crisp and clean, with a bright contrasting black and white image. The paper is high quality, showing no yellowing or foxing. An excerp from that story: "Tradition says that it was first broken by Dr. Franklin, who remarked, 'Gentlemen, we must now all hang together, or we shall surely hang separately.' Thousands of anxious citizens had gathered in the streets of Philadelphia, for it was known that the final vote would be taken on that day. From the hour when Congress convened in the morning, the old bell-man had been in the steeple. He had placed a boy at the door below, to give him notice when the announcement should be made. As hour succeeded hour, the graybeard shook his head, and said, 'They will never do it! they will never do it!' Suddenly a loud shout came up from below, and there stood the little blue-eyed boy clapping his hands, and shouting, 'Ring! Ring!' Grasping the iron tongue of the old bell, backward and forward he hurled it a hundred times, its loud voice proclaiming 'Liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.' The excited multitude in the streets responded with loud acclamations, and with cannon peals, bonfires, and illuminations, the patriots held a glorious carnival that night in the quiet city of Penn."

250 Sander, Jacob [Sander Wood Engraving Co.] Kuppenheimer engraved prints
Chicago Sander Wood Engraving Co. 1975 No Binding Very Good Print Folio - over 12 - 15 Leyendecker, J. C. 
These three original prints were engraved by Jacob Sander in the mid-1920's, based on the then popular Kuppenheimer ad campaign by J.C. Leyendecker. Sander based the wood engravings on current ads made by Leyendecker. He engraved around forty fashion subjects for newspaper advertising by the Sander Engraving Company of Chicago, Ill. No signature or date is present, and they are not a limited edition set (although the Sander Engraving Co. is gone, and original blocks most likely sold off or destroyed, therefore no others may be produced). These are prints from the original blocks, but most likely "struck" (or printed) in the mid-1970s. As they are not titled prints, so I will title them by description. MEASUREMENTS: "Kuppenheimer w/ seated man on right" - 7-3/4" x 6-1/4" image, 13" x 9" overall size. "Kuppenheimer w/ trophy" - 7-1/4" x 6-1/4" image, 13" x 9" overall size. "Untitled baseball throw" - 6-1/4" x 6" image, 13" x 9" overall size. CONDITION: All images in fair to good condition, with no flaws, creases, etc. I am not a paper expert, so I don't know what type they are printed on; seems to be a higher quality paper, almost vellum like in appearance. Not previously framed, no tape marks or hinges present.

263 Sterne, Laurence A Sentimental Journey through France & Italy [numbered, limited edition]
New York Alfred A. Knopf 1925 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good Book 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾ Wilfred Jones 
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1925. #628/2000 numbered by Pynson Printers of New York - Typography by Elmer Adler. Hardcover - measures just 6" x 9-1/2" tall. Ochre cloth spine with illustrated pattern paper boards. 140 pp. With 12 beautiful wood engraving illustrations printed in a brownish-sepia ink by Wilfred Jones. Spine slightly worn, gilt title still readable. Bottom corner has slight staining. Corners slightly bumped and rubbed. Binding tight and complete. No writing, tears, foxing, etc. Previous owner's gift inscription on front endpaper. The novel was extremely popular and influential and helped establish travel writing as the dominant genre of the second half of the 18th century. Unlike prior travel accounts which stressed classical learning and objective non-personal points of view, A Sentimental Journey emphasized the subjective discussions of personal taste and sentiments, of manners and morals over classical learning. Throughout the 1770's women travel writers began publishing significant numbers of sentimental travel accounts. Sentiment also became a favorite style among those expressing non-mainstream views including political radicalism. The narrator is the Reverend Mr. Yorick, who is slyly represented to guileless readers as Sterne's barely disguised alter ego. The book recounts his various adventures, usually of the amorous type, in a series of self-contained episodes. The book is less eccentric and more elegant in style than Tristram Shandy and was better received by contemporary critics. It was published on February 27, and on March 18 Sterne died.

278 Twain, Mark [Mark Swain] "Forty-three Days in an Open Boat" Harper's Monthly Magazine Dec. 1866 Vol 34
New York Harper's Monthly Magazine 1866 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good Magazine 4to - over 9¾ - 12 
Forty-three Days in an Open Boat, by Mark Swain (pp. 104-113) (Mark Twain's first appearance in print in a national magazine): New York: Harper & Brothers, 1866. Volume #34, Issues #199 - 204. 6-month bound magazine with December, 1866 - May, 1867, with added title and contents pages in front, and original wraps & ads removed. Quarter brown leather spine with four raised bands and gilt decoration, with dark hardcover boards. Measures 6-1/2" x 9-3/4" tall. 816 pp. Illustrated with 211named black/white illustrations, with titles in front contents section. Front index includes all titles and authors. Notable for containing Mark Twain's first appearance in print in a national magazine, predating his first book. Published anonymously in the individual issues, the story is attributed in the table of contents in the bound volumes to "Mark Swain," as Twain had yet to gain national recognition, though his "jumping frog" story was just beginning to spread in newspapers throughout America. A description of the events by Twain himself, taken from 'My Debut as a Literary Person': "This was in 1866. I prepared my contribution, and then looked around for the best magazine to go up to glory in. I selected the most important one in New York. The contribution was accepted. I signed it 'MARK TWAIN;' for that name had some currency on the Pacific coast, and it was my idea to spread it all over the world, now, at this one jump. The article appeared in the December number, and I sat up a month waiting for the January number; for that one would contain the year's list of contributors, my name would be in it, and I should be famous and could give the banquet I was meditating. I did not give the banquet. I had not written the 'MARK TWAIN' distinctly; it was a fresh name to Eastern printers, and they put it 'Mike Swain' or 'MacSwain,' I do not remember which. At any rate, I was not celebrated and I did not give the banquet. I was a Literary Person, but that was all--a buried one; buried alive." This volume also contains the original (and first story) about 'Wild Bill Hickok', written by Colonel George Ward Nichols, after a 'quick draw' duel between Hickok and Davis Tutt, Jr. in Springfield, Missouri on July 21, 1865.

Outer spine edges cracked on head of spine, 2-1/2" and 1-3/4" respectively; lower spine cracked at outer edge 2" length. Front inner gutter starting, responding to above mentioned cracks. Corners and edges bumped and rubbed; fore edge shows a few bump indentations. Outer cloth covers show light wear; rear top corner shows a corner of moisture damage, 'wrinkling' the cloth (although entire covers feel firm and tight). Marbled endpapers have light age wear to their glossy appearance. Internally, foxed endpapers and random locations within text. Notable 'spots' around Wild Bill article (see picture). Title page torn and creased, almost 3/4 way thru (blank back side could easily be repaired with japan paper method. Otherwise internally clean and tight binding. Not ex-library.

Forty-three Days in an Open Boat, by Mark Swain (pp. 104-113) (Mark Twain's first appearance in print in a national magazine): Book Description: Harper & Brothers December 1866, New York, 1866. Volume 34, Issue #199. General soiling. Good or better and scarce in wraps. Notable for containing Mark Twain's first appearance in print in a national magazine, predating his first book. Published anonymously in the individual issues, the story is attributed in the table of contents in the bound volumes to "Mark Swain," as Twain had yet to gain national recognition, though his "jumping frog" story was just beginning to spread in newspapers throughout America. Condition: Overall, good condition, with flaws noted: Leather spine binding worn at edges & head and tail. Outer spine edges cracked on head of spine, 2-1/2" and 1-3/4" respectively; lower spine cracked at outer edge 2" length. Front inner gutter starting, responding to above mentioned cracks. Corners and edges bumped and rubbed; fore edge shows a few bump indentations. Outer cloth covers show light wear; rear top corner shows a corner of moisture damage, 'wrinkling' the cloth (although entire covers feel firm and tight). Marbled endpapers have light age wear to their glossy appearance. Internally, foxed endpapers and random locations within text. Notable 'spots' around Wild Bill article (see picture).

No other interior marks, writing, highlighting, or major things to note. Bright pages and crisp/clean illustrations throughout. A description of the events by Twain himself, taken from 'My Debut as a Literary Person': "This was in 1866. I prepared my contribution, and then looked around for the best magazine to go up to glory in. I selected the most important one in New York. The contribution was accepted. I signed it 'MARK TWAIN;' for that name had some currency on the Pacific coast, and it was my idea to spread it all over the world, now, at this one jump. The article appeared in the December number, and I sat up a month waiting for the January number; for that one would contain the year's list of contributors, my name would be in it, and I should be famous and could give the banquet I was meditating. I did not give the banquet. I had not written the 'MARK TWAIN' distinctly; it was a fresh name to Eastern printers, and they put it 'Mike Swain' or 'MacSwain,' I do not remember which. At any rate, I was not celebrated and I did not give the banquet. I was a Literary Person, but that was all--a buried one; buried alive." This volume also contains the original (and first story) about 'Wild Bill Hickok', written by Colonel George Ward Nichols, after a 'quick draw' duel between Hickok and Davis Tutt, Jr. in Springfield, Missouri on July 21, 1865.
