        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]
