        Golf Is My Game.

      New York: Doubleday & Company, 1960. First edition of this classic golfing technique manual. Octavo, original half cloth, illustrated. Signed by the author in full on the half-title page, "Robert T. Jones." Near fine in a excellent near fine price-clipped dust jacket with light wear to the extremities. Jacket design by Ben Feder. "Jones left an enduring legacy of athletic prowess and exemplary personal characteristics. No one is likely to break his records of 13 U.S. and British national championships, and four in one year (he won the U.S. Open a total of four times, the U.S. Amateur five times, the British Open three times, and the British Amateur one time) The Masters seems to have a secure place in the pantheon of golf; and the name Bobby Jones will continue to represent the highest standards of amateurism, sportsmanship and self-mastery" (ANB).

        HARPER'S WEEKLY. JOURNAL OF CIVILIZATION, for the years 1861-65.

      LIVING HISTORY, Shenandoah, Iowa 1960 - Complete 52 weekly reissues for 5 Volumes of HARPER'S WEEKLY. JOURNAL OF CIVILIZATION, for the years 1861-65. Each volume contains 52 issues, profusely illustrated with engravings and drawings. The weekly issues are housed in the publisher's string-tied burgundy cloth bindings, with the title "HARPER'S WEEKLY" on the front panel. The issues run from December 29, 1860 through December 30th, 1865 (Issues Nos. 209-470), comprising 832 pages per year. There are 16 pages per issue. Only the first two years (1861-62) are actually "tied" in to the bindings. The three later volumes have their issues laid in loose. (See photos). The issues are in Very Good condition or better condition. The last page of December 1863 has a small tear at the rear corner. These re-issues were published by LIVING HISTORY, Shenandoah Iowa, for the Centennial of the Civil War and the 100th anniversary of the original publication of the issues. ****In 1857 a New York printer named Fletcher Harper began publication of a weekly tabloid which "in the first place and above anything else," he declared, would be a "first-class newspaper." Emphasizing pointed editorials, large-scale illustrations, and promising literary works in serial installments, not even its founder visualized the heights of success to which HARPER'S WEEKLY arose. ***From an early circulation of 60,000, subscriptions mushroomed to 120,000 by late 1861 and eventually reached 160,000 before the paper's disbandment in 1916. Probably no periodical in America -- contemporary magazines notwithstanding -- has so dominated a nation's reading habits as did this weekly in the course of its fifty-nine-year history. Therefore, the republication of HARPER'S WEEKLY for the Civil War years does not merely provide a valuable and vivid source of first-hand reports on the struggle; it in essence recaptures every facet of that moment in history when America's destiny lay on the altar of a volcano of sectional eruptions. The first republished issue [December 29, 1860] reflects the mixture of joy and apprehension that was Christmas, 1860. In sharp contrast to the Yuletide scenes on the cover are elaborate, sinister drawings within the Forts Sumter and Moultrie, which had already become the focal point for Southern annoyance and Northern defense. As tensions in the following weeks mounted around Charleston harbor, HARPER'S devoted more and more space to the garrison of Major Robert Anderson and his handful of defendents [sic] -- defiant but virtually helpless. Yet at this point the editor was content to alert his readers to the appearance of the forts and to editorialize happily on the lack of European support given to South Carolina's secession . By late December, 1860, the tragic drama of national chaos was beginning to unfold. While thousands of Americans were enjoying the columns of HARPER'S WEEKLY and finishing up the scraps from the Christmas table, Georgia's Howell Cobb was stating with vehemence: "Equality and safety in the Union are at an end. The issue (of secession) must now be met, or forever abandoned." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Enemy Within.

      New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1960 - Octavo. Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine, untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Slight fading along board edges, tiny stain to top edge, an excellent copy with the jacket slightly rubbed at the ends and corners. 14 pages of monochrome illustrations from photographs. First edition, first printing (copyright page signed "A-K", later printings are signed "D-K"), presentation copy inscribed on the front free endpaper, "To my old antagonist Senator Goldwater from his friend Bob Kennedy". This is a great cross-party association for Bobby Kennedy's first book, which concerned the McLellan Committee's enquiry into union and management corruption, focussing on Jimmy Hoffa's links to organised crime. Barry Morris Goldwater (1909–1998), who is mentioned on 22 pages in the book, was five-term United States Senator from Arizona (1953–65, 1969–87) and the Republican Party's nominee for President in the 1964 election. He is the politician most often credited for sparking the resurgence of the American conservative political movement in the 60s. His landslide defeat to Lyndon B. Johnson opened the door for Johnson and a Congress dominated by Democrats to pass the Great Society programs. Goldwater returned to the Senate in 1969, by which time the leadership of the conservative movement had moved to Reagan. In 1974 Goldwater was the man who successfully urged Richard Nixon (whom he described as "the most dishonest individual I have ever met in my life") to resign at the height of the Watergate scandal. Goldwater retired in 1987, and was succeeded in office by John McCain. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        AMIDA NYORAI HYAKU BUTSUZOU: ONE HUNDRED IMAGES OF AMIDA NYORAI: ONE HUNDRED IMA

      - [Nara ca. 1100 A.D., Joruri-ji Tempe]. A Single sheet 33.3 x 46.8 cm. [backing size], rebacked on hand-made Washi paper, print sheet size: 32.8 . x 45.6 cm., hand-printed woodblocks on thin mulberry Washi paper, stunning work! S C A R C E THIS AN EXCEPTIONALLY RARE AND EARLY WOODBLOCK PRINT * "Although printing had been practiced in Japan as early as the eighth century, the stamping or block printing of large numbers of Buddhist images did not gain prominence until the last half of the Heian period. The reception of images was believed to be an effective method of accumulating religious merit, and this stimulated the production of Buddhist prints-often rather crudely made-in vast numbers. The blocks or stamps most commonly used contained anywhere from a single image up to a dozen identical units; large full-sheet blocks, such as this one, seemed to have been used less frequently." [quoted from Rosenfield, see below] *** DETAILS OF OUR ITEM: Our item is printed on high fiber Washi paper, quite bright and still retaining its natural fiber color. There is some loss to the lower margin but very little loss to the printing. The upper left corner is gone and with it five images are gone. There is a minor bit of left margin loss but very little printing loss. The right margin is excellent. The print was acquired from the late Richard C. Rudolph of U.C.L.A., who had cut the print in half horizontally. The two parts are now back together and has been professionally rebacked on Washi paper, there is no loss where they are rejoined. The hand-made Washi paper on the right and left edges are a bit thicker than the rest of the paper, perhaps there was an effort on the part of the paper-maker to give strength to these edges. Our example is exceptional when compared to other known copies. * ILLUSTRATED IN ISHIDA: This excellent example illustrated in Ishida is owned by Joruri-ji Temple and has only 81 of 100 images, there was loss to the margins. [see reference below] *** PRINTING AS A DAILY DEVOTION: Ishida points out on p.30-31, discussing the Heian practice of worshipers printing a number of Buddhist images each day or month to fulfill a religious vow. Printing these images gave merit and virtue to the printer, thereby increasing their position in the Buddhist Sangha [community]. Temples encouraged the Sangha to print images as that aided in soliciting donations. "Donors were allowed to pay for the printing of Buddhist images to be placed inside of statues. This served the purpose of temple finance in much the same way as printed appeals for contributions. The images were never distributed to the people but were instead stored away in sculpted images." It seems little has changed in a thousand years, as Buddhist priests still seem to offer prints to donors even today. It is believed that the prints were discovered in the 1960's and given to donors who gave substantial sums of money for temple restoration. . Every morning as part of a daily regimen, women of the Imperial court would print Buddhist images using woodblocks on sheets of thin mulberry Washi paper as religious observance, much like saying prayers every morning. After an appropriate number of pages were printed, the sheets were rolled and tied in bundles and then inserted into the hollow interior of sculptures. * WOODBLOCK PRINTING TECHNIQUE: This print was printed from a single woodblock containing ten images in a row, with ten rows in all yielding some 100 images on a single sheet. See Baskett p.30 for additional details. Rosenfield supports the idea of a single block with 100 images carved on it. There is ample evidence to support both Ishida and Baskett's idea that the print was done by use of a single block containing 100 images stamped on a single sheet of Mulberry paper. * RARITY: The print is exceptionally RARE ! Only a few examples have been cited, published or illustrated. Apparently this image only came to light in the 1960's and very few came to public view, those few

        Collection of 400 Photographs from a Camden, New Jersey Family

      Camden, New Jersey 1960 - A collection of more than 400 photos from a Camden, New Jersey family including 40 Civil War-era tintypes, 30 cabinet cards, and the rest various different format photographs taken between 1900 and the early 1960s, various sizes and with a few back marks from Virginia, but most from the Philadelphia, Camden, and Trenton areas. The photos are generally very good or better with some photos clipped at the corners from mounting, wear to some of the edges, and a few of the tintypes darkening or with their finish peeling. The photos feature matron Mary A. Fleming and the extended families of her daughters Elizabeth Nardin, Bessie W. Steelman, and Emma Gordon, including their husbands, children, and relations in various formal and candid shots: posing with pets, laughing with friends, kids playing, a flood, a house being built (likely due to the flood), and others. Of note are about a dozen military-related photographs featuring: six Civil War soldiers each posing in uniform; four of World War I soldiers in formation and training; a group shot of World War II sailors posing on the deck of a ship; and four of USO entertainers performing at an army hospital. The photos are accompanied by a few handwritten notes referencing various family members, as well as what was once a red velvet photo album, now only a tattered remnant of its former self, with a handful of additional scattered photos still intact. A nice collection of photos documenting 100 years of a New Jersey family's history.

      Bloomfield, New Jersey, Queens, New York 1960 - Oblong quarto. String-tied brown flexible leather with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front cover measuring 10.5" x 12". Very good minus with tears, loose pages, and lacking some photos. A collection of 159 photographs taken by New Jersey photographer H.J. Rosenkranz of his family,and friends, among other things, from the turn of the century until around 1960, mostly uncaptioned. The assembled photos range from landscape shots of rural New Jersey and the surrounding area, people posing on benches, in their house, and outside in various locations. Pictured are photos of a biplane in flight, an elaborate double-decker bus with a spiral staircase, and horse drawn carts full of straw baled by farmers. The album also contains beautiful large shots of train yards and locomotives. There are also some professional family portraits, weddings photos, and new baby. Laid in is a Rosenkranz business card as well as a prayer card for Frieda Rosenkranz, though it is unclear whether she was a wife or daughter. Some of the later images are in color including a trip to Washington DC, complete with cherry blossoms, and one of a man posing on his land and a older woman by a gravesite. A nice assortment of vernacular images from a minor professional photographer from New Jersey capturing 60 years of his history.
