        The Civil Code of Lower Canada and the Bills of Exchange Act 1890: With All Statutory Amendments Verified, Collated and Indexed

      C. Theoret Law Book Publisher, Montreal 1903 First Edition Cloth and Leather Bound Hardcover Near Fine/--/No Dust Jacket. 6 3/4H x 5 1/8W x 7/8 inch NON SMOKING STORE. My listing includes PHOTO OF ACTUAL BOOK for sale. Book NEAR FINE/ Covers Very Good Plus. Very gently read, if at all. Sewn binding. In its original boards which have a design in blue, red, black, light brown and white in a kind of "c" shape with the opening of the "c" downwards. The spine, quarter boards and triangular covers of all corners are brown leather. The spine has 4 raised sections done in a rope design, two of them framing a red area where the title is done in gilt. The front cover has the paper worn away on top and bottom board edges, exposing the board but with almost no erosion of the boards. The front cover design area has several areas where it is worn away but only the surface design is gone, the board is whole and strong underneath, there are no holes and no gouges or rips. The front cover leather corners are scuffed on the outer edges but there are no holes in the leather. The front cover section of the leather spine is scuffed a bit on the line where it joins the spine itself, in the areas of the rope design, and also a bit at the top and bottom and the edges. The spine itself is rubbed on the top and bottom and same edges as well as the higher parts of the rope design but the rope design is not worn down and the detail is not worn away, the red colour and gilt title are also bright and clear and have no wear. The back cover is in the same condition as the front. All paper edges have the surface paper worn off and all leather edges have minor scuffing. Page edges are medium brown, possibly from age. The side page edges form a "C" shape but this is not from the spine curving but rather the spine is rounded and bound as such with the leather when published. Inner end papers are white. Inside of book is tight, clean, clear, flat. Book is slightly over-opened at page 142 and the threads have made four small 1/8 inch closed rips on the inner side but the spine is not broken and the pages are not ripped or loose. At page 144 the binding is open on the bottom 5/8 inch from the bottom thread to the bottom edge of the page and the spine can be seen through the gap but again the spine is not broken and the page is not ripped or loose. The book is slightly over-opened at the title page meaning that the ffeps tend to fall towards the front cover away from the title page when let go by the fingers but here the inside edge of the pages is closed, there are no tiny rips from the threads, and the paper and spine are tight. I only mention it because of the value of this book. There is some age darkening inside the covers and on edges of pages and on almost all of the ffep and back end paper. Owner's round ink initial stamp, 3/4 inch diameter, on ffep. There is no writing inside the book, no pages are underlined, torn, no holes, no stains, book smells fine, no moisture or insect damage. It is in quite remarkable condition for its age. Preface by Robert Stanley Weir Montreal March 1898. Volume includes Book First (Of Persons), Book Second (Of Property, Of Ownership And Of Its Different Modifications), Book Third (Of The Acquisition And Exercise Of Rights Of Property), Book Fourth (Commercial Law), The Bills Of Exchange Act 1890, Index To The Civil Code,Index To The Bills Of Exchange Act.

The most modern of the major Victorian poets in outlook, Arnold remains best known for “Dover Beach,” the melancholy poem about the loss of faith he wrote on his honeymoon; other such notable verses as “The Scholar-Gipsy,” “Stanzas from the Grand Chartreuse,” “Thyrsis” and “Empedocles on Etna” all appear here. This edition also contains his critical prose, including Culture and Anarchy, Essays in Criticism and On the Study of Celtic Literature. Three volumes of correspondence complete the set. With engraved frontispiece portrait in Volume I. A fine set.

        La Chanson du Mal-Aimé. Mil-neuf-cent-trois.

      Belle édition originale de Pierre Bettencourt. Couverture ornée d'une étoile dans un carré estampé dont le fond à droite se grise en pointillé. Autour du carré, Marie, Madeleine, Annie, Lou. Au bas, Guillaume. Dans l'ouvrage, typographie alternant l'italique et le romain avec titres en rouge. "Achevé d'imprimer un jour de soleil à la campagne et tiré à petit nombre pour la fleur de nos amis vers la fin du monde". Jeu typographique permettant de retrouver le nom du poète à travers une impression où alternent le rouge et le noir. "La Chanson du Mal Aimé a été écrite pour Anny Playden qu'Apollinaire rencontra lorsqu'il était précepteur en Allemagne en 1903 et qui l'éconduisit. En y associant Marie (Laurencin), Madeleine (Pages) et Lou (de Chatillon Coligny), Pierre Bettencourt généralise le parcours du poète, comme s'il n'y avait pas d'amour heureux, qu'il était de sa nature même d'être mal aimé." Un des 25 ex. avec cahiers de papier bleu.- On joint l'invitation illustrée, imprimée par Thierry Bouchard, à l'exposition des livres de Bettencourt à Paris, librairie Obliques, en janvier 1983.

      1903. ROOSEVELT, Theodore. Works. New York and London: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1903. Fourteen volumes. Small octavo, contemporary three-quarter red morocco, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut. $5000.“Prairie” edition of selected writings by the adventurous 26th president of the United States, each volume with a frontispiece illustration.Includes a selection of Roosevelt's most important histories, essays and hunting stories published up to the year 1903, including The Naval War of 1812 and The Winning of the West. While a student at Harvard, Roosevelt ""published (with a friend) a paper of professional quality on birds of the Adirondacks and wrote a senior thesis that called for limited voting rights for women and their 'most absolute equality' in marriage. He also wrote the first two chapters of The Naval War of 1812 (1882), a work of meticulous scholarship acclaimed in British and American naval circles alikeÂ… By Roosevelt's graduation the qualities that were to attract, repel, or bemuse his countrymen for four decades became pronounced. He abounded in physical and mental energy, acted often on impulse and at times on shrewd calculation, and generally exuded warmth, affection, and charm. He possessed the gift of words, though he limited their flow with difficulty; and even when he was moralizing, his force and imagery made him unfailingly interesting"" (ANB). Wheelock, 5. Scattered light foxing; contemporary morocco handsome. Near-fine condition.
