Andy Buckram's Tin Men
 Picture
Publisher: New York 1966.
Good+ in Good dust jacket; Pockets and date slips removed, with resulting paper stuck to endpapers, both front and rear. Dust jacket is in mylar sleeve which is taped to book with the usual tape damage to pages. Part of back jacket flap was cut away to make room for pocket. Stamp on back paste-down has been inked over, as has the one on the title page, and the ink on title page has leaked to the next page a bit. There is also a library stamp on the fore edge, which, fortunately, they forgot to ink over. Wish they had also forgotten to ink over the stamp on the top edge. As far as I can tell without untaping the mylar sleeve, the outside dust jacket is very good except for what might be a small closed tear on the bottom edge and some library labels taped to the mylar sleeve. The library binding is very strong and the pages are all secure and clean except as noted above. Viking Second Printing Hardcover Ex-Library; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 192 pages; Andy Buckram built four tin robots from tin cans, bits of metal and other odds and ends. He gave each a name and special personality. One was a girl -- the rest were male. They were his only mechanical toys and he loved to play with them. One night a terrible storm flooded the countryside, destroying Andy's home and electrifying his robots. Before Andy knew it, he found himself in a leaky boat headed for a deserted island with his four robots, his young friend Sparrow, and his baby cousin as fellow passengers. A remarkable series of adventures follow.

Publisher: New York: Century, 1915..
First Edition Hardback 12 mo (about six inches tall) in pictorial yellowish cloth decorated in red and green. 290 pages with 48 illustrations on glossy paper by Harrison Cady. Not in the Dowhan bibliography which notes only the 1921 Little Brown edition. Nice copy with a sound binding, unmarked inside but for a previous owner name in pencil on the front endpaper and a bit of light soiling here and there. The covers have some light edge wear, but the bottom edge of the back cover is more seriously worn to the boards for about an inch and a half, and may have been nibbled. The spine is moderately darkened making it difficult to read the spine title. Still an attractive copy with all of these problems together having little impact on the overall look. A scarce and early item in this author's large and popular list of titles. Hardcover Hardcover Very good-

Harris, Joel Chandler.  
The Chronicles of Aunt Minervy Ann.

Publisher: New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1899..
First edition Very nice copy. Light brown cloth decorated in black and red. Light extremity wear; very light spine darkening with barely discernible remains of a white number. This was not a lending library copy, but rather a private owner had placed a catalog number on the spine. Owner name stamped on both pastedowns, and gift inscription dated 1899 on both free endpapers (strangely, two owners double marked the book, and the later stamp is also on an interior page). Interior clean and soundly bound with just the slightest toning to text. Thirty-two illustrations on glossy paper by A.B. Frost. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed; therefore BAL 7143, state B. Very good

James, Will; edited by Alice Dalgliesh.  
The Will James Cowboy Book.

Publisher: New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1938..
First Edition Octavo, about 8.25 inches (21 cm) tall, in orange cloth stamped in black. 158 pages plus a page of brands and another page of the author's books. Color frontis and many black and white illustrations, endpapers showing illustrated letters. Frazier, 115. Certainly James' scarcest book, this collects stories and pieces from previously published material. Laid in is a photocopy of a letter dated Sept. 7, 1955, from noted Texas bookman, Jeff Dykes, offering a copy of this book to a friend, noting that he believed that it had been offered to the Texas Department of Education to be used in schools, but was turned down. Also laid in is an auction listing for, apparently, this copy, quoting the Dykes letter extensively and terming the book "very rare". A reasonably nice copy: modest soiling to the boards, sunning to the spine; spotting to the textblock edges. Inside is clean and sound but for a pen notation on the front endpaper referencing a "camp library". Issued without a jacket. Hardcover Hardcover Very Good-
