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.

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

Goldsmith, Oliver; Arthur Rackham (illus)  
The Vicar of Wakefield

Publisher: George G. Harrap & Company, London, 1929.
Very Good with no dust jacket. First Edition Thus. 1. Leather Publisher's light brown leather with embossed gilt illustration with leather onlay in pink, white, dark blue and light blue on the front cover, gilt lettering and little leaves on the spine, t.e.g., pictorial endpapers. Illustrated with 12 color plates and 23 line drawings by Arthur Rackham. This is the first appearance of these drawings by Rackham. Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) was an English book illustrator. Rackham is widely regarded as one of the leading illustrators from the 'Golden Age' of British book illustration. "In imagination, draftsmanship and colour-blending, his work stands alone. His deep understanding of the spirit of myth, fable, and folklore affords him a transcendent range of expression." [Sarah Briggs Latimore and Grace Clark Haskell, 1936]. Spine and an inch of the rear cover are sun-darkened, head and heel of spine are lightly rubbed, front endpaper, frontispiece, half-title and title page are heavily foxed, a few other pages have very slight foxing at the edge, but most are spotless and the plates are clean and bright, half-title has a small split at the upper edge, else unmarked, tight, square and clean.

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.

Sharpe, Philip B.  
The Rife in America

Publisher: The National Rifle Association By Odysseus Editions, Inc., Fairfax, VA, 1995.
As New with no dust jacket. Special Edition. First Printing. Leather Bound in publisher's full black leather, spine in six compartments separated by raised bands, gilt lettering in two compartments, gilt tooling in remainder, gilt borders and decoration on covers. 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. Film was prepared from an original 1938 edition. The book was printed and bound by Quebecor Graphics/Sherwood. The text paper was especially made for this edition by P. H. Glatfelter Company. The binding is genuine pigskin Saderra leather, Himalaya grain, furnished by the Cromwell Leather Company. Endleaves are 300-denier silk moiré. Edges are gilded and spines are brass-die stamped in 22-karat gold. Cover stampings and design of the edition by Selma Ordewer. Philip B. Sharpe's Rifle in America, first published in 1938, "is the most competent general coverage on the American rifle." Thanks in part to that definitive nature, along with the fact that the book was a beautifully produced one and a vital reference source, the volume is recognized as an essential acquisition for anyone interested in the crucial role rifles have played in the unfolding panorama of America's manifest destiny. 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.

Sutton, Eric (trans.)  
Cléante and Bélise: Their Loves and Their Letters
 Picture
Publisher: Henry Babou and Jack Kahane, Paris, (1930).
Near Fine with no dust jacket. First Edition Thus. 1. Leather Limited to 300 copies. nd (1930). Contemporary half deep maroon calf over patterned boards with antelope brown pigskin and gilt morocco inlays in Art Deco motif, gilt lettering and embossed gilt and black decoration on spine, t.e.g., fore-edge and bottom edges deckle, marbled copper and gold endpapers, silk bookmark bound in. Illustrated with eleven dry-point etchings in elegantly erotic galante style, including six plates, four headpieces, frontispiece and title page, and woodcut tail-pieces, all by Jean Dulac. “Bélise, the writer of the letters here translated, and heroine of the narrative that procedes them, had a very real existence; she was Anne de Bellinzani, daughter of of François Bellinzani, originally of Ferrara, one of the most trusted agents of Louis XIV’s great Finance Minister, Colbert…In 1671 (as she says) when only fourteen years of age, she met ‘Cléante’ - the Baron de Breteuil…and fell in love with him…How the narrative and the letters came to be given to the world is not wholly clear. The narrative was apparently first published in 1689, the letters not until two years later. It will be observed that the third part of the narrative differs considerably in tone from the preceding two parts. The explanation probably is that Bélise wrote the first two herself, and Breteuil, on hearing of them and their contents, and grasping that he was likely to appear in none too favorable a light, managed to get a third section inserted for publication, in which Bélise is suitably vilified.". Lower edges have very slight shelf-wear, else pristine, unmarked, tight, square and clean. An extremely handsome volume. NEAR FINE. . B&W drawings. 8vo 8" - 9" tall

Whistler, James McNeill, 1834-1903  
Whistler v. Ruskin. Art & Art Critics
 Picture
Publisher: London: Chatto & Windus [1879?]. 'Third edition'.
17 p.; 19 cm. Printed brown paper cover; below Whistler’s name & address is the date "Dec. 24, 1878." With this is bound Mr. Whistler’s 'Ten o'Clock' (a talk delivered by James McNeill Whistler in London, February 1885), published in London by Chatto & Windus in 1888. Publisher’s device on title-page and on last leaf of the first title. "The 1878 libel suit of Whistler v Ruskin, which elucidated the conflict between the newly formed aesthetic movement and the Victorian ideal of art, embodies the struggle between the establishment and a new worldview. It is yet another example of the reluctance with which the old makes way for the new. In this case, the conflict was played out on the stage of aesthetics and morality in late Victorian England. John Ruskin represented all that was essentially Victorian in both theory and virtue, whereas James Abbott McNeill Whistler illustrated what was to be the vanguard of modernity in art practice and theory." Both works are signed twice in Whistler's "butterfly" signature. They are bound together in simple full leather by Zaehnsdorf with the bookplate of George G. T. Treherne and the original wrappers bound in. A prize copy of a notorious icon of modern art theory. Stock#OB681.
