Clementia (Sister Mary Edward Feehan)

 Picture
Publisher: Benziger Brothers NY 1917.
Very Good with no dust jacket Hardcover Second book in the Mary Selwyn series which became so popular that two other, smaller books were later written to explain what led Mary to where she began. "Uncle Frank's Mary" (the first book in the series) is also available. Light soil on boards, top edge "dusty". There is a very faint stain along top edge of a few pages in some signatures, but not all, leading me to believe the stain occurred prior to binding. However, there is a stain on rear board that permeates onto rear endpapers. Fade spots on spine. Nevertheless, a very good clean tight binding which matches binding of the first book in the series, "Uncle Frank's Mary". Mary Selwyn Series; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 245 pages; 26788

Harris, Joel Chandler w/illus. by Oliver Herford  
Aaron in the Wildwoods

Publisher: Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1898 (1897)..
270pp. illus. decorated cloth 8vo: about Good [gilt cover titles are bright; spine strip is darkened; light shelf wear; hinges are cracked but firm; small oval personal library stamp on several pp.; couple of edge tears on pages; spot of foxing here and there; else a complete & tight copy] According to Bruce Bickley, writing in the New Georgia Encyclopedia, Joel Chandler Harris was born in 1845, not 1848 as noted in most biographic sources. His mentor, literary plantation owner Joseph Addison Turner, who published the newspaper The Countryman from his Turnwold Plantation near Eatonton, Georgia, managed to get Harris a deferment from service in the Confederate army, something of an historical question mark/sore point in Harris life. He is most famous for his Uncle Remus stories, which made him second only to his friend Mark Twain in popularity as an American writer at the turn of the 20th century. Harris died in 1908, a couple of years before Twain. This book of children's stories features 24 marvelous llustrations by the Anglo-American artist Oliver Herford (1863-1935).

Alger, Horatio Jr.  
Ragged Dick, or Street Life in New York With the Boot-Blacks.

Publisher: Boston: Loring, 1868..
First Edition, First printing Hardback 12mo, almost 7 inches tall, in green cloth, blind stamped on covers, decorated title and figure on spine in gilt. 296 pages. Alger's illusive first "rags to riches" story. First state with "Fame and Fortune" announced for December and Dick alone on the decorative title page. A nice copy in collectible condition, soundly bound although there is professional repair to a cracked front endpaper. Covers have modest extremity wear with front cover tips showing through and a little fraying to spine ends with a tiny chip at head of spine. The top edge is moderately darkened. The spine title is bright and readable although the figure of Dick is dulled a bit. Previous owner name stamped on front pastedown, and penciled Christmas gift note (1868) on front free endpaper. The front pastedown and the edges of the front free endpaper are significantly toned from glue transfer. There are very occasional light spots of foxing, and a series of twelve pages well into the book show a brown spot from a burn, which lighten as one moves away from the center of those pages, but no burn holes even to the obvious start. Perhaps a long list of faults, but none that significantly diminish the condition of the book. Hardcover Hardcover Very good

First Edition thus 12mo, about 7 inches tall, in red paper covered boards decorated in gray and black with a circular color pastedown. One of the publisher's "Children's Red Books" series, this being the fourth. The "Little Lame Prince" is not noted on the cover or title page. 58 pages plus 3 pages of publisher ads. Illustrated by 16 full page color plates (8 in each story) by John R. Neill, best known for his work on Baum's Oz books. A relatively cheaply made series so it is unusual to find these in good condition. This one is quite nice with a bit of light edge wear and minor fading to the spine ends. The inside is clean, bright and sound. The scarce dustjacket is quite degraded but the cover isn't bad: chips and pieces missing from the front panel amounting to perhaps 2 square inches; the spine is missing about 2 inches from the bottom; the rear panel is missing a large piece - about 20% of the total; the rear flap is missing entirely.
