        The Book of Myths

      OFFERING: The one-of-a-kind, finely decorated, English language typescript, preserved complete and untouched in the commissioned morocco binding, lettered and decorated with gold leaf. Decorations are original and done in gouache and pen & ink. Several are superb and a few dozen others are of exceptional interest and very fine. Jefferson Wallace's father was a renowned bibliophile with a particular interest in literature and the antiquarian and his mother was notably well-versed in the arts and a practicing poet. Their interest in literature and the antiquarian and their pride in their family's history was passed on to their two surviving children, Jefferson, the elder son, and Charles M., the younger. Jefferson Wallace [1864-1951] pursued careers in journalism, publishing, and politics before achieving success as an executive with State Life Insurance of Indianapolis, Indiana. He continued to pursue his interests in literature and the history of the South and Richmond and the four known, decorated, original typescripts reflect this. He lavished great care on this book of stories for his only child, Miss Ann Clopton Wallace and it appears to be the first of the completed decorated typescripts. (None were published.) Unlike the others, (in the holdings of Special Collections at the University of Virginia), this was bound, and given as a gift, likely for the Christmas of 1913. There are 35 stories, (as listed in the contents), taken from a wide range of sources: Greek Mythology (13), American Indian folklore (7), British folklore including fairy tales (6), Norse Mythology, centering on the story of Baldr (3), apocryphal Bible stories about King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba (2), Persian fables (2), a Japanese story (1), and a Hindu story (1). They are abridged and adapted to fit his perception of what was proper for his child to read. Each has its own decorated title page, these showing off to best advantage Wallace's flair and considerable talent for decoration. Stories are profusely illustrated with crown, foot and margin pieces, some with neatly handwritten captions. Many of the pages are set off with a decorated initial, some pictorial. These are very fine. Three pages are partially illuminated in gold or silver leaf. Text for the typescript is principally done in black ink but use of red or other colored inks to draw the eye is used extensively, with headings and song lyrics highlighted in red ink and single rule borders and some first words in color inks. COMPLETE TITLE: The Book of Myths; Some of the Sweet Myths of Nature arranged for Mistress Anne Clopton Wallace by her Daddy. PAGINATION: 161 pages, 8 plates separate from the pagination tipped on brown cardstock mounts with captions, protected by high quality tissue leaves. [5 leaves], mounted frontispiece photo print, general title page, elegantly decorated and illuminated and with a mounted paper title label; contents page (splendidly decorated), second bookplate (done in watercolor)], and 3 blank pages; 1-138 pages, one page with music notes, with 35 adapted, decorated stories + 7 mounted gouache and pen & ink plate illustrations done on a special handmade watercolor paper, captions neatly handwritten in white pastel; [3 leaves], ending blanks. ILLUSTRATIONS AND DECORATIONS: 41 pages have decorations over the full page with 31 decorated pictorial (one lavishly illuminated in gold leaf) and there are 230 other illustrations and decorations. 93 are crown, foot, and margin pieces in the texts and 111 are decorated initials, with 94 decorated (two are illuminated, one in gold leaf, one in silver), 16 decorated pictorial and one pictorial. Decorated initials are principally, but not always, the first letter on the page and many descend for eight or more lines of text. There are also 26 repeated letter device decorations in red ink, variations of a repeated cursive o. CAPTIONS AND TEXT UNDERSCORES: In addition to the 8 mounted plate leaves, 26 illustrations in the text, primarily animal and plant species have neatly handwritten captions and five words are underscored for additional emphasis. DATE: The typescript is dated 1913 on the title label tipped on the general title page and the book is dated 1913 on the spine. The frontispiece portrait was printed by the studio and tipped on its mount slightly later. It is dated January 1, 1914. DAUGHTER: Ann Clopton Wallace, his only child, was born ca. 1907. PHOTO PRINT PORTRAIT: The frontispiece shows father and daughter, (likely against a studio backdrop, a large framed painting), Jefferson Wallace with his customary handlebar moustache, aged 49, sitting in ¾ pose, Ann Wallace, age about 6, standing close to her father with a determined smile, looking straight at the camera, doll propped up, her left arm and hand resting comfortably on her father's right knee. The caption is:"The man and the girl. Scranton Pennsylvania, January 1, 1914." MARRIAGE: Jefferson Wallace married Anne Wynn Hawthorne of Lunenburg, Virginia on Christmas Day, 1906. He was 42. She was 19. There were significant problems in the early years of the marriage and she left for a time. Jefferson Wallace filed a notice of desertion with the county court in Scranton, Pennsylvania in October 1914 and he filed for divorce with the same court in the spring of 1915. There is evidence of a reconcilement: the nuclear family of three are on the 1918 list of Richmond investors in the Thousand Dollars Club. BINDING: Executed in Philadelphia in 1913, full crimson morocco decorated and lettered with gold leaf, octavo sewn with marbled endpapers; edges marbled, sides highlighted by a one-rule border, five compartment spine set off with one-rule borders, each compartment decorated with an identical leaf device, spine lettered with Wallace and 1913 date, upper side lettered with title in one-rule frame; Ann Clopton Wallace, Her Book in an open frame at the foot.

MOUNTED TITLE LABEL: on the general title page is elegantly handwritten with an expanded, colloquial version of the title and decorated with an original watercolor of the coat of arms of Clan Wallace. PERSONAL MOTTO: At the foot of the woodcut print bookplate is Jefferson Wallace's personal motto, also the motto of the Jefferson Literary and Debating Society at the University of Virginia; "Haec olim meminisse iuvabit", taken from Virgil, The Aeneid (1.203). Aeneas speaks to his shipwrecked company; "Maybe someday you will rejoice to recall even this." (Robert Fagles' translation from the Latin).

        Scrapbook]: Culver Military Academy

      Culver, Indiana 1913 - Oblong folio. Measuring 12" x 16". String-tied maroon cloth over paper boards with "Culver" stamped on the front board. Contains various ephemera, 80 pictorial postcards, and 53 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2.5" and 7.5" x 9.5", some with captions. Front board has detached but is present, slight foxing, and edgewear thus good only with near fine photographs.A scrapbook kept by David Burpee between 1910 and 1913 while he attended Culver Military Academy in Culver, Indiana. Burpee was the son of seedsman, Washington Atlee Burpee who headed W. Atlee Burpee & Co. out of Philadelphia. The company was the first seed company to succeed with a mail order system. After Washington's death in 1915 David took over the company as a seed merchant and horticulturist dedicating his time to the science behind cultivating seeds and creating new ways to assure the seeds would travel well. He was also interested in "plant breeding" and spent his life, according to a 1975 interview with *People Magazine*, "creating new and better kinds of flowers, plants and vegetables." Before he headed the Burpee Company, David attended Culver Military Academy and achieved officer status by the time of his graduation. The school was founded by Henry Culver in 1894 "for the purpose of thoroughly preparing young men for the best colleges, scientific schools and businesses of America."David's scrapbook extensively details his three years at the academy with photos of himself and cadets in uniform, in their barracks, and participating in athletics. A large photo shows the Culver Academy's track team as well as some action shots of Burpee during a race. He also saved programs and dance cards from plays and balls that were held at the school. The album contains an opening section of seven autograph pages with names, cities, and messages or "happy thoughts" from fellow cadets such as Richard M. Armstrong from Grand Rapids who wrote, "all the world loves a lover." Burpee includes pamphlets: "Introduction to New Cadets" and "Regulations for the Government of Cadets." The album also includes numerous photos of the cadets in military formations in full uniforms. They participated in nature hikes, drills, and Calvary practice. Burpee dedicated a large section of the book to pictorial postcards of the campus, Indiana, and various school trips, such as one to Washington, DC. The academy held special programs and dinners for holidays, pamphlets are seen here with dinner menus for Thanksgiving as well as special performances. There is also a large broadside for the Culver Mid-Winter Circus which included a Hindoo Juggler.Burpee left the academy in 1913 and went on to study at Cornell University until his father's death in 1915. He was given the nickname, "the Dean of U.S. horticulturists," and was constantly experimenting with new lines of plants. The seed catalogs were distributed twice a year and boasted over "1,400 different seeds, bulbs, shrubs, flowers, vegetables and trees." As of 1975 his personal goal was to create an all-white marigold which had been something he had been trying to create since 1953. According to the The National Cyclopaedia of American Biography: Permanent series, Volume 16, Burpee "achieved remarkable success in the conduct of the company's affairs displaying unusual executive ability wisdom and business acumen. He is not only a close student of horticulture and agriculture but is also a true devotee of the science."An interesting look at the school days of an American entrepreneur. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Boy's Will

      London: David Nutt, 1913 - Octavo. Original wrappers, titles in black to front. Housed in a green morocco backed bookform slipcase and chemise. Fine. True first edition of Frost's first published book, second issue wonderfully inscribed with a poetic quotation: "One had to be versed in country things, Robert Frost, for Crosby Gaige". Crosby Gaige (1882-1949) was a New York based publisher and theatrical impresario, who pioneered in the late 20s the production of fine press collections for living authors (which he described as "flowers for the living" as opposed to "garlands for the dead") such as Woolf (Orlando), Joyce (Anna Livia Plurabella), Sassoon and Hardy. Gaige was also a great epicure and frequenter of New York's finest supper clubs and cocktail lounges, and wrote several books on cookery and cocktails. The poetry collection A Boy's Will was the first published book of Robert Frost - who was then already nearing 40 and, though he had written much, had not found a conducive publisher in America. He had moved to London in 1912, hoping to find the scene more receptive to new poetic voices, and, with the support of F. S. Flint and other sympathetic Imagists such as Ezra Pound, managed to secure a deal with David Nutt, who printed 1,000 copies of A Boy's Will. Only about 350 copies were issued by Nutt, who went bankrupt shortly after the war, and sold the remainder stock to Simpkin & Marshall. Frost in the meantime had returned to America at the outbreak of the war, and, bolstered by his London publication and its rave reviews penned by his Imagist friends, achieved the American beginning of his meteoric poetic career with an edition of A Boy's Will published by Henry Holt in 1915. The c.650 remainder copies of A Boy's Will were later issued in a variety of bindings. This copy is of Crane's second issue, Binding D (the US issue, sold by Dunster House, Cambridge, MA, from 1923), with 4-petalled flowers, and "Printed in Great Britain" stamped to title page verso. Crane notes at length that this US issue came about entirely through Forst's express efforts. He was informed in 1921, by his friend J. W. Haines, that the remaining copies of his two early works (this and North of Boston - then in the possession of Simpkin Marshall, who had sold fewer than 100 copies - those being Crane's second issue, Binding C), were in danger of being pulped - Frost responded by sending "all the money I can raise to buy in those poor old first editions of mine". Haines transported them to Cambridge, MA, and Frost found a bookseller in Maurice Firuski of Dunster House. A little over half of the 1,000 copies printed were thus issued by Dunster House, before the remaining 135 copies, in 1943, were bought by the Chiswick Book Store, New York, and issued as a latterly-signed and numbered limited edition. We are aware of one other copy of this same issue also inscribed for Crosby Gaige, though this copy, with its marvellous invocation of one of Frost's most redolent lines (from "The Need of Being Versed in Country Things", first published in 1920), is certainly superior. A Boy's Will was preceded only by the small collection Twilight, 1894, of which only two copies were printed and only one survives, housed in the University of Virginia. In the same library are to be found two Frost limited editions, New Hampshire and West Running Book, both inscribed to Crosby Gaige. Crane A2. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Former owner's signature on verso of front fly leaf and small bookseller's label at bottom of front pastedown sheet, else a very good, bright copy in the original blue cloth. A Haycraft/Queen Cornerstone title. Haycraft notes in MURDER FOR PLEASURE, (New York, 1941) page 118, that this book ". like every epochal work, must be regarded in its own historical spectrum to be fully appreciated. Its deceptive unremarkableness, in fact is the chief reason for its uniqueness in an era in which flamboyance and overwriting were the hallmarks of the crime novel. TRENT'S LAST CASE stands truly first among modern examples of the genre." John Carter, among the earliest champions of detective fiction, called Bentley "the father of the contemporary detective novel." A society woman is accused of murdering her businessman husband. Called to piece the clues together is Inspector Trent, on the verge of retiring from detection. He learns that the dead man was a louse, providing the wife with plenty of motive. But, did she do it? Laid-in to this copy is an affectionate autographed letter signed from E. C. Bentley to Ethel Oldershaw ("My Dear Ethel") on the passing of her husband, Bentley's old school friend Lucian Oldershaw: 2 handwritten in ink pages, 8vo, London (41 Queen's Gate Gardens), 5 February 1951. "I have known for the past two years what such a bereavement is, and I feel the more on that account for you and yours. So many of the best memories of my life are connected with Lucian, and as I live in the past nowadays he has been very often in my thoughts. For that matter he has never been very long out of them at any time . . . In the days when we were together so much, his companionship and resourcefulness and immense fund of humour made an unforgettable impression on me. I cannot be with you tomorrow because I am confined to my bedroom with bronchitis, but I wanted you to know how I feel, and I am yours sincerely. E. C. Bentley." Lucian Robert Frederic Oldershaw was, with Edmund Clerihew Bentley (died 1956; his wife had died in 1949), one of a trio of friends at St. Paul's School; the third was Gilbert Keith Chesterton (died 1936). Oldershaw introduced Chesterton to Frances Alice Blogg, his future wife (they married in 1896; she died in 1938), and in 1902 Oldershaw married her younger sister Ethel Laura Blogg (died 1953).

        A history and description of the Royal Observatory, Cape of Good Hope.

      - London, His Majesty's Stationery Office, 1913. Folio (36.5 x 27.5 cm). cxc, 136 pp. Frontispiece with two photos, 58 [11, 16, 23, 5, 3] plates (line drawings and photos; sometimes several "plates" on one sheet), 19 text figures. Folded two-colour sheet of the plan of the observatory, and large folded diagram (i.e. map) of the geodetic triangulation of South Africa and adjacent countries. Original blue embossed cloth. Spine with gilt title.l A sumptuous volume compiled by the Scottish astronomer Sir David Gill (1843-1914) with detailed descriptions of various telescopes and survey projects. Gill was "Her Majesty's Astronomer" and director of the observatory from 1879 to 1906. "In 1874, Gill joined the expedition to Mauritius to observe the transit of Venus. Three years later he went to Ascension Island to observe a near approach of Mars and to calculate its distance. While carrying out these laborious calculations, he was notified of his appointment to the Cape Observatory, which, over the following 27 years he was to refurbish completely, turning it into a first-rate institution. Gill was a meticulous observer and had a flair for getting the best out of his instruments. His solar parallax observations with a heliometer and his calculations of distances to the nearer stars, are testimony to his outstanding work." (Wikipedia). The two frontispiece photos show the staff at Gill's arrival in 1879, and again more comprehensively in 1906, including women and non-Caucasians, That year, Gill returned to Great Britain. The work was finished and published shortly before his death. Printed errata leaf tipped in. Small old stamp on the title page, skilful repair to the top fore edge of the front board, otherwise a very good, clean copy. Rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Palestine. Founded on the Survey of the Palestine Exploration Fund.

      - [Dated and signed in the cast], M. Parsons, 1913. Cast copper relief map of Palestine and parts of Lebanon and Syria, stretching from Beirut in the north, to Gaza in the south, and Hauran via Bashan to the east. 20 x 37 x 1cm, a key, and place names. Based on a map by the Palestine Exploration Fund (possibly Armstrong's "Relief Map" of 1909), this was made by M. Parsons in 1913 as indicated bottom left (PEF also made a photo relief map in 1907). Two sets of nuts and bolts to the back suggest this was intended to be affixed to a wall as a plaque. The Palestine Exploration Fund was established in 1865 by Arthur Stanley and George Grove under the patronage of Queen Victoria as a secular organisation 'to promote research into the archaeology and history, manners and customs and culture, topography, geology and natural sciences of biblical Palestine and the Levant' (PEF). Its illustrious list of associates includes George Armstrong, Charles Wilson, Charles Warren, Claude Conder, Kitchener, Gottlieb Schumacher, WF Petrie, Leonard Woolley, T.E. Lawrence, Schumacher, John Garstang among many others. Of these, Conder and Kitchener among others conducted the Survey of Western Palestine during 1871-78. 'Senior Fund officials, first and foremost among them George Armstrong, saw in the creation of relief maps and their sale to schools, churches, and other institutions a means of spreading precise geographic knowledge about Jerusalem and the Holy Land and of fulfilling one of the central objectives of the PEF' (Rubin, Relief Maps and Models in the Archives of The Palestine Exploration Fund, in Palestine Exploration Quarterly, 138, 1 (2006), 43-63, not knowing about this map). Although the provenance of this map is not known, we believe it is more likely to have been made for one of the PEF's members or associates. A school or church would be less likely as its size is too small to display effectively to classrooms or congregations, and such institutions might have found the plaster versions (such as the huge plaster relief in the PEF's own collection) much more suitable for viewing. - A unique and intriguing item.

      Wien, Selbstverlag, 1913 - 1918. 50 Hefte. Pag. OBrosch. \" ... knapp vor dem Kriegsausbruch [1914], hatte der \"Österreichische Flottenverein\" 44.617 Mitglieder. Er wurde in den vergangenen zehn Jahren von einem kleinen Kreis von Romantikern zu einem ernstzunehmenden wirtschaftlichen Faktor; aus einem elitären Club wurde eine übernationale, unpolitische Massenbewegung, die alle Zweige der Volkswirtschaft erreichte. Der Flottenverein bestand neben der Wiener Zentrale aus vielen Ortsgruppen; eine Ortsgruppe konnte überall dort gebildet werden, wo sich mehr als 20 Mitglieder zusammenfanden. 1914 waren es an die 200 solcher Ortsgruppen, sogar im Ausland: Abbazia, Adelsberg, Alexandrien, Antwerpen, Athen, Baden, Banjaluka, Barcelona, Beirut, Berlin, Berndorf, Bielitz, Bjelina in Bosnien, Bozen, Braila, Brcka, Brioni, Brünn, Brüssel, Brüx, Budweis, Bukarest, Cattaro, Curytiba, Czernowitz, Dresden, Eger, Franzensbad, Galatz, Gmunden, Görz, Gorazda, Gradiska, Graz, ... Nach der Ermordung Franz Ferdinands übernahm das Protektorat der neue Thronfolger Erzherzog Karl. Der Verein steigerte im Weltkrieg seine Propagandatätigkeit: Aus Spenden konnte er der k.u.k. Kriegsmarine ein Unterseeboot und zwei Flugzeuge widmen. Der Flottenverein hatte zuletzt um die 80.000 Mitglieder. Ende 1918 brachte der Zerfall der Monarchie auch das Ende des Flottenvereins; das Hauptziel, die Förderung der heimischen Seefahrt, entfiel. Die letzte Ausgabe der \"Flagge\" ist mit März/April 1919 datiert. Die stark geschwächte Wiener Zentrale und Ortsgruppe in der Schwarzspanierstraße wandelte sich zum \"Österreichischen Schiffahrtsverein\" und kurz darauf zur \"Österreichischen Weltwirtschaftsgesellschaft\" um. Neben dieser Vereinigung von Freunden und Förderen der Schiffahrt bildeten sich schon in den ersten Monaten der kleinen Republik in Linz, Klagenfurt, Salzburg, Tirol, Steiermark und Vorarlberg lose Gruppen ehemaliger Seeleute, die ihr Beruf verloren haben und sich um gegenseitige Unterstützung bemühten...\" (Zitat nach W.

      Various Midwest locations. mostly 1913-1918. Small oblong octavo. Measuring 8" x 6". Alligator patterned cloth over flexible card. 110 mostly sepia-toned gelatin silver prints. The majority are approximately 4.5" x 2.75" with a few larger. About half are captioned. Small stain on one board, images with a little fading, very good or better, images near fine. The images follow a group of cheerful young women, members of the "Oh! Club" (possibly at Ohio University). The women are shown in large groups starting in 1913 at banquets, at initiations which includes a photo of all the women blindfolded, at a slumber party, a farmer's party, a Christmas party, a "Stag" party, etc. Many of the photos are of the girls traveling as a group to several Midwest locations: the Oh! Camp at Cedar Bluffs, (Nebraska?); at another Oh! Camp at Valley Park, (Missouri?); on a "St. Louis-Mazda Boat Excursion"; north of St. Louis at Chain of Rocks; at "Chautauqua" (which could be one of any number of places). In several of the images the women are dressed as men. The photos are dated through 1917 and show the women delighting in each other's company. There are photos of them in bathing costumes at various Oh! camps, hiking, and posing on a ship. A nice collection of photographs depicting an organization for young women in the early part of the 20th Century. .

        Woodrow Wilson Signed Portrait.

      - Limited edition engraving by artist Frederick Reynolds, signed by both the artist and Woodrow Wilson, one of 300 numbered. Matted and framed. The entire piece measures 19.5 inches by 24 inches. In near fine condition. Rare and desirable. Woodrow Wilson was an American politician and academic who served as the 28th President of the United States from 1913 to 1921. Born in Staunton, Virginia, he spent his early years in Augusta, Georgia and Columbia, South Carolina. Wilson earned a PhD in political science at Johns Hopkins University, and served as a professor at various institutions before being selected as President of Princeton University, a position he held from 1902 to 1910. In 1910, he was the New Jersey Democratic Party's gubernatorial candidate and was elected the 34th Governor of New Jersey, serving from 1911 to 1913. In the 1912 presidential election, Wilson benefited from a split in the Republican Party to win the presidency, gaining a large majority in the Electoral College and a 42% plurality of the popular vote in a four-candidate field. He was the first Southerner elected as president since Zachary Taylor in 1848, and Wilson was a leading force in the Progressive Movement, bolstered by his Democratic Party's winning control of both the White House and Congress in 1912. While in office, Wilson reintroduced the spoken State of the Union, which had been out of use since 1801. Leading the Congress that was now in Democratic hands, he oversaw the passage of progressive legislative policies unparalleled until the New Deal in 1933. The Federal Reserve Act, Federal Trade Commission Act, the Clayton Antitrust Act, and the Federal Farm Loan Act were some of these new policies. Having taken office one month after ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment, Wilson called a special session of Congress, whose work culminated in the Revenue Act of 1913, introducing an income tax and lowering tariffs. Through passage of the Adamson Act that imposed an 8-hour workday for railroads, he averted a railroad strike and an ensuing economic crisis.[3] Upon the outbreak of World War I in 1914, Wilson maintained a policy of neutrality, while pursuing a more aggressive policy in dealing with Mexico's civil war. Wilson faced former New York Governor Charles Evans Hughes in the presidential election of 1916. By a narrow margin, he became the first Democrat since Andrew Jackson elected to two consecutive terms. Wilson's second term was dominated by American entry into World War I. In April 1917, when Germany had resumed unrestricted submarine warfare and sent the Zimmermann Telegram, Wilson asked Congress to declare war in order to make "the world safe for democracy." The United States conducted military operations alongside the Allies, although without a formal alliance. During the war, Wilson focused on diplomacy and financial considerations, leaving military strategy to the generals, especially General John J. Pershing. Loaning billions of dollars to Britain, France, and other Allies, the United States aided their finance of the war effort. Through the Selective Service Act, conscription sent 10,000 freshly trained soldiers to France per day by the summer of 1918. On the home front, he raised income taxes, borrowing billions of dollars through the public's purchase of Liberty Bonds. He set up the War Industries Board, promoted labor union cooperation, regulating agriculture and food production through the Lever Act, and granting to the Secretary of the Treasury, William McAdoo, direct control of the nation's railroad system. In his 1915 State of the Union Address, Wilson asked Congress for what became the Espionage Act of 1917 and the Sedition Act of 1918, suppressing anti-draft activists. The crackdown was intensified by his Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer to include expulsion of non-citizen radicals during the First Red Scare of 1919-1920. Following years of advocacy for suffrage on the state level, in 1918 he endorsed the Nineteenth Ame [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Taylor's report "The Western Journeys", occupies pp 124-98 of Volume II, which also includes his "A Résumé of the Physiography and Glacial Geology of Victoria Land, Antarctica" (pp 285-94). Thomas Griffith Taylor (1880-1963) grew up in Australia, entered Sydney University in 1899, and studied at Cambridge 1907-10, doing work in geology. Upon his return to Australia, he was offered a position with the Commonwealth Weather Service and was invited to represent the Service on Scott's Terra Nova Expedition (1910-12). Eventually running afoul of the Australian government for his views on immigration to Australia, he took a post as a full professor at the University of Chicago in 1929, moving on to the University of Toronto in 1936. He founded the Department of Geography at that university, having already founded the University of Sydney's department. An interesting copy, signed by an important member of the expedition and an eminent geographer. Note: 4 kg parcel, extra shipping will be required. Binding: Hardcover. .
