        Book of Mormon: An Account Written by the Hand of Mormon, upon plates taken from the plates of Nephi

      Salt Lake City, UT: The Deseret News, Printers and Publishers, 1903. 623 pp. Sextodecimo [17 cm]; full leather with decorative gilt stamping to the boards and backstrip. Gilt dentelles with all edges gilt. Ex-Masonic library with a bookplate on the front pastedown, a small number in white on the front board, and a stamp on the title page. The backstrip is heavily sun faded. The first gathering (index-title) is loose and laid in. Signed by Joseph F. Smith, John Winder and Anthon Lund on the front free endsheet following a short secretarial inscription dated August 22nd 1905. The book is inscribed to "Mr. T.C. Peck." This is likely Thomas C. Peck who was a railroad agent for the Salt Lake Railroad, and later for the Union Pacific. He was based in Los Angeles (this would explain how the book came to be part of the library of the L.A. Masonic Lodge). Books of Mormon signed by Mormon Prophets are uncommon, and scripture signed by an entire First Presidency are unusually scarce.

        A Girl Among the Anarchists

      London: Duckworth & Co., 1903. First edition. Original publisher's maroon cloth with black border, and black lettering and seal on spine. 302pp. Exceedingly scarce work by Olivia and Helen Rossetti, daughters of the celebrated Pre-Raphaelite poet and art critic, William Michael Rossetti. The book is a semi-autobiographical statement on both women's views on anarchy. Indeed, Olivia was to later emigrate to Italy and become involved in the Facist Party. An important book mirroring childhood views on facism that took their fulfillment later in life, by two key family members in the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood circle. No other copies located at time of writing. Very good.

        Dagbok 1775-1817. Öfversatt [från franskan] och utgifven af Carl Carlson Bonde och Cecilia af Klercker. I-IX.

      Norstedts 1903-1942. Totalt nära 5000 s. Illustrerade med 16 porträtt utspridda i de olika delarna + 5 utvikbara brev i faksimil i del 1. Del 1 i andra upplagan (som vanligt), övriga delar i första upplagan. Eleganta, blå halvfranska band med marmorerade pärmpapper och snitt. Ryggarna skavda och olika blekta, pärmarnas kanter skavda. Komplett och uniformt inbunden svit av detta kända verk som är ett av de viktigaste källorna till vår kunskap om den gustavianska epoken. Nio volymer.. Orsaken till att det ofta är olika nyanser och lite olika dekorationer på banden är att om dom är samtida bundna (i detta fall ett spann på 39 år) så är det ibland (som i detta fallet) olika bokbindare och därmed inte samma skinn och förgyllningsstämplar. Hedvig Elisabeth Charlotta, född 22 mars 1759, död 20 juni 1818, svensk drottning 1809-1818, från 1814 även norsk drottning, dotter till hertig Fredrik August av Oldenburg, gift 1774 med sin kusin, hertig Karl av Södermanland, sedermera kung Karl XIII. Originalmanuskriptet tillhör numera Riksarkivet
