Austen, Jane; illustrated by C.E. Brock.  
Pride and Prejudice.

Publisher: London: J.M. Dent , 1907..
First Edition thus Twelvemo, about 7.75 inches (19.5 cm) tall, in the publisher's gilt decorated vellum. 336 pages illustrated by 24 color plates by Charles Brock. A lovely volume that was part of a six volume set. Brock had illustrated Austen some years before with other illustrators including his brother, but only in uncolored drawings. The illustrated endpapers are moderately toned; the text to a lesser extent but still obvious. The vellum, as is often the case in a dry climate, has shrunk causing the covers to bow and leaving the hinges a little tight. It should resolve itself in higher humidity. Otherwise clean and unmarked with the vellum slightly yellowed. Hardcover Hardcover Very Good-

Burke, John., Illustrated by: Engraved Plates  
[Heraldic Illustrations with Explanatory Pedigrees; half-title] Heraldic Illustrations Comprising the Armorial Bearings of the Principal Families of the Empire; with Pedigrees and Annotations (VOL II)

Publisher: Edward Churton London: 1845.
VOL 2 ONLY (of three). 9 ¾ x 7 inches, ¾ dark brown fine leather with five raised bands, gilt spine titles and rulings, fine marbled boards and endpapers, top edge gilt. No page numbers. Fine engraved plates illustrating heraldic crests throughout. There is a "II" stamped on the spine, but no indication in the printed information that this is a second volume. (The plate numbers and Library of Congress listing bear this out, however.) The engraved bookplate of San Francisco socialite and benefactor, Maud Lee Flood, is affixed to the front pastedown. The bookplate depicts Linden Towers, Menlo California. Frontis engraving of the heraldic device of the Most Noble Hugh Perry, Duke of Northumberland, Knight of the Garter. Folding plate and engraved plates of heraldic devices LIV-CIII (54-103) complete and intact. CONDITION: This book is in better then very good condition. The original binding is sound and has some edgewear, with one corner tip rubbed through. There is slight discoloration to thin strips along marbled paper edges from contact with or proximity to leather. Several pages have short underlines or marginal notes in pencil. Very light toning to a few page edges. Very scarce, especially in the original binding in such excellent condition. ABOUT THE BOOKPLATE (association): James Leary Flood was the son of James Clair Flood, a saloon keeper who part-owned the Nevada Comstock Lode with William S. O'Brian. Maud Lee (Fritz) married James Leary Flood after the death of his first wife, Rose, who was also Maud's sister. Maud, whose husband died in the late 1920s, deeded the Flood mansion to the nuns of the Sacred Heart who turned the building into a school, now called the Convent of the Sacred Heart, in 1938. Maud then lived in the penthouse suite at San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel until her death in 1966. The "Linden Towers" of the bookplate represents the Menlo Park estate of James Clair Flood, built and furnished to lavish proportions with his Comstock fortune. It passed down through the family. Following the death of James L. Flood, the estate was apportioned to heirs including one Constance May Gavin, whose suit as a daughter of James L. was recognized by the court. The furnishings were dispersed, and the mansion (known locally as The White Castle) was torn down in 1934.

Publisher: Rogerson & Tuxford, London, 1870.
Fine+ with no dust jacket. First Edition Thus. First Printing. Three-Quarter Leather FIRST EDITION. Hardcover in fine binding. 12mo. (viii), 2, iv, 486, (4) pp. 1st Printing. Engraved Frontispiece and Vignette Title. Elegantly bound in three quarter red Morocco over marbled boards by Zaehnsdorf with spine in six compartments seperated by five raised bands, each compartment with either gilt lettering or decoration, gilt ruling on covers, teg, ribbon marker. Marbled endpapers. Magnificent Zaehnsdorf binding in perfect condition. Former owner's (Kenneth Baker Schley) printed bookplate on fep, otherwise a fine and exceptionally clean copy of this beautiful book. FINE+. "The title of this work should pretty well explain its nature. Sirloin speaks with ponderous emphasis for itself, and Saddle has a triple bearing on horses, sheep and pigs. It is, in fact, simply the record of what I have seen and heard during the last eleven years in the course of my summer rambles from Cumberland to Cornwall." - (from the Preface) Henry Hall Dixon (1822-1870) was an English sporting writer known by his nom de plume, "The Druid. " He was born at Warwick Bridge, Cumberland, in 1822, and was educated at Rugby and at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he graduated in 1846. He took up the profession of the law, but, though called to the bar in 1853, soon returned to sporting journalism, in which he had already made a name for himself, and began to write regularly for the Sporting Magazine, in the pages of which appeared three of his novels, Post and Paddock (1856) Silk and Scarlet (1859) and Scott and Sebright (1862) He also published a legal compendium entitled The Law of the Farm (1858) which ran through several editions. His other more important works were Field and Fern (1865) giving an account of the herds and flocks of Scotland, and Saddle and Sirloin (1870) treating in the same manner those of England. He died at Kensington in 1870. Steel engraving. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. (viii), 2, iv, 486, (4) pp

McConkey, Harriet E. Bishop  
Dakota War Whoop: Indian Massacres and War in Minnesota

Publisher: R. R. Donnelley & Sons / The Lakeside Press, Chicago, 1965.
As New with no dust jacket. First Edition. First Printing. Hard Cover Publisher's full blue cloth, gilt lettering on spine, gilt medallion on cover, t.e.g. Illustrated with Color map of the war area and five captioned B&W illustrations. The 1862 outbreak in Southern Minnesota and the Dakota Territory stands as one of the great divides in American history. It was the last of the woodland wars, in which red men would attack forts and whole towns, fighting pitched battles for them. There had been many wars of this kind along the Atlantic coast and inland, over a period of nearly two hundred years. The like would not be seen again. Now, the Sioux, expelled as a tribe from the Minnesota homeland where so many of the Dakota peoples had once lived, would enter the era of the Plains wars, different in kind, in temper, and in magnitude from anything that had involved the Sioux in the past. What began in 1862 came to a pitiful end in 1890 at the Battle of Wounded Knee, and we are still trying to gain an adequate perspective on what happened during those fateful years. Includes the "Official Report of Brigadier General Henry H. Sibley to Maj. Gen. Pope" and the "Official Report of Brigadier General Alfred Sully." . The volume is in perfect, pristine condition, unmarked, tight, square and clean; still in original shipping box and glassine wrapper, both of which are also in perfect condition. AS NEW.

Silk ribbon marker bound in. a.e.g. Illustrated with hundreds of B&W photographs and drawings. This is a volume in The Firearms Classics Library of The National Rifle Association and its National Firearms Museum, privately printed for members of the Firearms Classics Library.

As historians have long proclaimed and as Sharpe realized, the rifle was a key element in, America's western-oriented expansion which ultimately saw her people embrace and settle the heartland from the Atlantic to the Pacific. In other words, to delve into the pages of The Rifle in America is to be transported to the essence of our country's past. This is a large and heavy book - additional shipping charges may apply. This volume is in perfect, pristine condition, unmarked, unread, tight, square and clean. AS NEW. The Firearms Classics Library Series. B&W Illustrations. 4to 11" - 13" tall. xii, 641, (1) pp

Illustrated by 13 very good engravings. This was distributed in the U.S. by Carey & Lea of Philadelphia. One of several such annuals published during the period with literary and inspirational short pieces. The book is in very good condition with a little edge wear and some light soiling, and the front hinge is soundly held by the binding twine but the endpaper is open. The joints (exterior hinges) have lost some of the paper covering. Still a very attractive period piece. Hardcover Hardcover Very Good
