Truman's account of his experiences after leaving the White House. Copy #881 of 1000 SIGNED by the author on the limitation page. It is likely that less than the stated 1000 were published as we have personally seen close to 200 examples of the unbound limitation sheet that were signed.

None of the dustjackets are price clipped, showing almost no edgewear or tanning, except the noted areas of the Two Towers. These unusual dustjackets are in fabulous condition. The jackets show no tanning whatsoever to the spines or edges. All maps are tipped in at the rear, and in excellent condition. No tears or extra folds, only the slightest of browning mainly at the fold areas. This is the set that features a line drawing by an unnamed artist for Readers Union of 'Sauron's Eye'. The only set to have this particular and very unusual dustjacket. Scarce in this lovely condition. Includes a custom slipcase for display and protection of these beautiful books. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Near Fine / Near Fine.

Fine in an almost near fine jacket with several small tears and a tiny stain at the heel of the spine, in a bright, almost near fine slipcase, with a scratch to the back panel.. First Edition.

        Rabbit, Run

The first of the Rabbit books -- the story of Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom -- a one time high-school basketball star whose life changes with the pop culture and news of the day.

The last two novels in the series (RABBIT IS RICH and RABBIT AT REST) each separately won the Pulitzer Prize. In this first volume, Rabbit decides on a whim to leave his wife. Near Fine/Near Fine -- very little of the dust jacket fading for which this volume is notorious -- a bright and clean copy. Inscribed by Updike on the front free end paper, as follows: "For Vince, John Updike." This book is from the library of the late noted Oklahoma book collector Larry Owens. . Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Zwei Gramm Licht

      Zurich: Interbooks, (1960). Very close to fine in a fine jacket; uncommon thus.. First Edition. Quarto. Afterward by Georg Ramseger. Haunting images of midfifties Europe shot in a dark lush gravure. While the tone of the book is set by the first spread: a Munich shantytown muddied in the aftermath of war, the cinematic swagger of Wicki's work is enough to mitigate what might otherwise be mistaken for a survey of destruction. Little-known book (at least in North America) given its due by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. (Parr / Badger, v1, 215; Auer 400).

        Grand Canyon River Guide Scroll Map

      Western River Guides Association, Heber City, UT 1960 - From Herm Hoop's History of River Guides on the Colorado River System: "Les Jones, of Heber City, Utah, was an engineer and avid river runner. Jones began running rivers at the age of eleven. He built a kayak, running most rivers solo, and taking movies from a camera mounted on a football helmet. By the early 1950's Les began taping USGS maps together and filling in the missing contours. Les began using aerial photos, USGS maps and his own drawings and notes to trace and draw detailed maps on a scroll paper strips 7-10 inches wide. The maps were not waterproof and faded in sunlight, so they had to be protected from water and sunlight. Later his maps were copied onto waterproof mylar. Jones copied a river profile on the map above the river segments, labeling rapids and features on both. The maps contained rapid ratings, drawings of major rapids, Powell and other historic river camps, historic inscriptions and other detailed information. Les' maps were some of the first maps to contain conservation messages." One of Jones's river scroll maps for the Grand Canyon. Dark blue mimeographed text and map. Includes an alert about the proposed Marble Canyon dam within the Grand Canyon. 7" wide paper scroll map is of unknown length when unrolled. In original plastic packaging with attached paper instructions. Some edgewear, few small tears visible. Fascinating piece of river-running history!
