[Wyoming]: Richardson, Charles O.
[N.p., but likely Chicago], 1903. Two-color map on thin paper, approximately 18 x 31 3/4 inches. Original folds. Slight separations at a few crossfolds, few short closed marginal tears. Very good. An interesting promotional map produced by Chicago oil and real estate speculator Charles O. Richardson, highlighting the oil- producing areas of Uinta County, Wyoming at the dawn of the 20th century. Uinta County is located at the extreme southwestern corner of Wyoming, on the border with Utah. At the time this map was produced, crude oil was vitally important to both the Standard Oil Company and the Union Pacific Railroad - for the former to refine into gasoline and for the latter to lubricate locomotives. Both entities appear on the present map. The "Index" or key of the map references the first two wells of the Standard Oil Company, other oil & gas wells, the lands of the Standard Reserve Oil Company, the lines for the Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad (red dashed line), the Union Pacific Railroad Main Line (solid red line), and certain county and other roads. On the far right portion of the sheet is a large schematic cross-section showing "the stratifications of oil sand encountered" in drilling the Union Pacific Oil Well. Oil was known to exist in Wyoming long before the present map, since at least the 1830s when Captain Bonneville found an oil spring near Dallas Dome. Uinta County was known to have oil near Hilliard when Fort Bridger was established nearby in 1842 (both appear on the present map). Yet, this map is one of the earliest depictions of the industry on … [Click Below for Full Description]

SIGNED BY ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE: THE BEAUTIFUL TWELVE-VOLUME "AUTHOR'S EDITION", ONE OF 1000 COPIES SIGNED BY DOYLE; IN EXQUISITE BAYNTUN BINDINGS. "The author considered this edition of his works to be of great importance: he revised parts, and added notes and a number of special introductions. He remarks in the preface that it had for some time been his ambition to have such a collection" and he notes that "I have expended all pains in putting these books into their final form..." (Green & Gibson, A Bibliography of Arthur Conan Doyle, A60).This English issue of the Author's Edition was limited to 1000 sets - 510 sets were bound by Smith. Elder and Company. "The remaining 490 sets of sheets were passed to John Murray when the company was sold; they were reissued with new title-pages dated 1903 in and after 1917." This set is one of the John Murray reissues. There was an American issue of the Author's Edition as well, but Doyle refused to sign any of those sets. Although Doyle mentions in his preface that he intended to add new works to the set over the years, this was never done and consequently The Hound of the Baskervilles was not included in this edition. (Green & Gibson).Beautifully illustrated with twenty-four photogravure plates. Note: The signed limitation page precedes the title page in The White Company.London: John Murray, 1903 [but really 1917].

[16], 136, [5], [3 blank]; 131, [4], [1 blank]; 415, [14], [3 blank] pp.True second edition of Scaliger's Manilius, the oldest and most widely cited work on ancient astrology, enlarged with commentaries by Franciscus Junius. "Perhaps no critic has ever effected so great and permanent a change in any author's text as Scaliger in Manilius'. ... The commentary is the one commentary on Manilius, without forerunner and without successor; after the passage of 300 years, it is the only avenue to a study of the poem ..." (Houseman, in the preface to his edition of 1903)."For the average reader, the Astronomica served as a literary introduction to heavens and an advanced primer to astrology. Manilius' masterpiece, a Latin didactic poem in five books, unveils the cosmos in hexameter verse, explaining the celestial sphere and zodiac, 'describing the stars, constellations, and planets,' and above all, providing a Stoic vision of the celestial dance" (Hockey et al.).From the library of Pietro Riccardi, a notable collector of mathematical books. Some browning throughout and one page with its lower right corner torn off, but still a good copy and wholly untrimmed, preserving all deckles.

But then the bulk of the titles concern the advancing American frontier and Western history, military life, and experiences with the Indians – including personal memoirs, travels, and first-hand accounts. Most are classics in their fields.The books are bound in various cloth colors in 25-year increments, green being the earliest and most difficult to find, with red, blue, and brown following. The latest is teal, began a new century with T. R. Roosevelt's ROUGH RIDERS. With the year 2019 the series has come to an end, with Edmonds' NURSE AND SPY IN THE UNION ARMY.There is a wealth of fine American historical reading here, and this highly collectable set makes a handsome-looking addition to any library.

YOU'LL LOVE THESE BOOKS !!! English author JANE AUSTEN (1775-1817) wrote six major novels, one novella, minor works and juvenilia that are available for our enjoyment today. Her first novel to be published during her lifetime was Sense and Sensibility (1811) followed by Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1815). Northanger Abbey and Persuasion were published posthumously after her death in 1817. Sense and Sensibility (1811) Austen's first published novel, Sense and Sensibility is a wonderfully entertaining tale of flirtation and folly that revolves around two starkly different sisters, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood. While Elinor is thoughtful, considerate, and calm, her younger sister is emotional and wildly romantic. Both are looking for a husband, but neither Elinor's reason nor Marianne's passion can lead them to perfect happiness-as Marianne falls for an unscrupulous rascal and Elinor becomes attached to a man who's already engaged. Pride and Prejudice (1813) 'It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.'

James, Henry
Harper & Brothers, New York, 1903. A splendid example of James' best known work. 1 of just 4000 copies of the first edition in scarce original dust jacket! In protective glassine wrapper, previous gift inscription dated within weeks of publication, "Presented to W. O. MacGill by Mrs. Harry A. Price, Christmas - 1903" and accompanied by the owner's neat bookplate on the front paste down. MacGill was the Secretary of the Baltimore Life Insurance Company. Light foxing to the end papers Top gilt is dulled a bit, but still intact. Binding is tight and pages clean and un marked. Well cared for over the years. Henry James got the central idea for The Ambassadors from an anecdote about his friend and fellow-novelist William Dean Howells, who, whilst visiting his son in Paris, was so impressed with the amenities of European culture that he wondered aloud if life hadn't passed him by. From that intriguing suggestion grew Strether's long speech to Little Bilham about living "all you can". The theme of liberation from a cramped, almost starved, emotional life into a more generous and gracious existence plays throughout The Ambassadors, yet it is noteworthy that James does not naively portray Paris as a faultless paradise for culturally stunted Americans. Strether learns about the reverse side of the European coin when he sees how desperately Marie fears losing Chad, after all she has done for him. As one critic proposed, Strether does not shed his American strait jacket only to be fitted with a more elegant European model, but instead learns to evaluate every situation on its merits, w … [Click Below for Full Description]
