101 Digby, Kenelm Henry Evenings on the Thames; or, Serene Hours and What They Require (Two Volumes)
London Longman, Green, Longman, Roberts, and Green 1864 Hardcover Very Good No Jacket Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall 
Three quarter green leather over marbled boards. Banded spine embossed in gilt. Top edges gilt. Marbled end papers. Boards are rubbed and edge worn. A couple of nicks to edges of boards. Corners wearing through. Bits of loss to leather. Spines faded. Previous owner's bookplates in front end papers. Pages lightly toned from age with very occasional foxing. Bindings sound. Volume I is 554 pages and Volume II is 582. Kenelm Henry Digby (1797 - 1880) was an Anglo-Irish writer, whose reputation rests chiefly on his earliest publication, The Broad-Stone of Honour, or Rules for the Gentlemen of England (1822), which contains an exhaustive survey of medieval customs. The book inculcated readers with ideas of chivalry and staunch Catholicism and stressed the importance of the heart's knowledge over intellectual learning by presenting historical figures as role models. Digby's revival of medieval principles helped young men of his day construct their idea of what being a "gentleman" means.

From the authors' introduction: "From plants and animals that are only knee-high to a grasshopper, from landmarks to literature, from art to scientific discoveries -- a big array of diminutive bests. We Texans love the Big Tex myth, but in this era of limits it's in bad taste to strive for grandiosity. Now is the time to excel at being small even more than we did at being big. And Texas is ready. To prove it we've combed the state for tiny Texana.

Professionally rebound in handsome Morocco with banded, gilt embossed spine, all edges gilt, marbled end papers, a bit of rubbing at extremities, especially along bottom edges of boards, internally clean and bright with sound binding.

Set in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County, based on Lafayette County, Mississippi, where Faulkner spent most of his life. William Faulkner is one of the most celebrated writers in American literature specifically known for writing southern fiction.

Two of his works, A Fable (1954) and his last novel The Reivers (1962), won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Well packaged. Ships insured.

Boards are ever so slightly bowed, printed on very thin yellow paper, clean and sound, silver booksellers label in rear from Lilliput, Tokyo, with old price in Japanese yen. This miniature reproduction of the original, published in 1958. From the original promotion: "Everyone knows that L. Frank Baum wrote one of the great children's books of all time, The Wizard of Oz, and many people are aware that he was the author of a host of other children's tales of a distinctly American genre. But how many of even his most devoted fans have heard about his lively theatrical career? Here, for the first time, is the story of the stage ventures of L. Frank Baum; all these spectacular productions-the sensational successes-the dismal failures-and the shows that never were produced at all. Also, for the first time, here are three all but forgotten scenarios from his own pen (Maid of Athens, King of Gee Whiz, Pipes O' Pan). Furthermore, this book offers a complete checklist of all Baum's works including many hitherto unrecorded items, valuable details and first edition points. All this, and a wealth of rare posters, stagebills, and other Baumiana reproduced herein, will make The Musical Fantasies of L. Frank Baum a welcome, if not indispensible, addition to any library.

141 Harraden, Beatrice The Fowler
New York, NY Dodd, Mead & Company 1899 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good No Jacket Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall 
First edition; hardcover in cloth; 7 1/2 x 5 inches; 345 pages. Coarse brown cloth decorated with an image of a butterfly in blue and gold, boards rubbed and edge worn with mild dust soiling, toned pages with occasional brown spots, binding sound. "A young country lawyer is driven by poverty to accept an assemblyman's salary from the hands of a "boss," and when his conscience forces him to vote against a bad bill he is thrown out of office. ..." -- google books description. Theodore Bevan, the Fowler, the type of evil, the spirit of pessimism; Brian Uppingham, the type of good, the spirit of optimism; and Nora Penhurst, the prey of the Fowler, and the beloved of Brian -these are the three significant characters of the book, and the story is the story of Nora's struggles under these two influences. Beatrice Harraden (1864-1936) was a British writer and suffragette. She traveled extensively in Europe and the United States and in 1893 found fame with her debut novel, Ships That Pass in the Night, a love story set in a tuberculosis sanatorium. It was a best-seller, but she failed to achieve similar success with subsequent books which included novels, short stories and books for children.

143 Heinlein, Robert A. The Moon is a Harsh Mistress
New York, NY G. P. Putnam's Sons 1966 Hardcover Very Good Minus Very Good Minus Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall 
Sixth impression; hardcover with dust jacket, 8 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches, 383 pages, author photo on rear, orig price of $6.95 in front jacket flap. Turquoise cloth with gilt titles to spine and author initials to bottom front corner, boards edge worn with mild damp staining and bleached spots along rear fore edge, tiny split at tail of front internal hinge, pages toned from age, dust jacket rubbed and edge worn, strip of rubbing along center of spine, chipping at extremities with small chip and crease at top front edge, dust jacket now in protective mylar cover. Robert A. Heinlein was the most influential science fiction writer of his era, an influence so large that, as Samuel R. Delany notes, "modern critics attempting to wrestle with that influence find themselves dealing with an object rather like the sky or an ocean." He won the Hugo Award for best novel four times, a record that still stands. The Moon is a Harsh Mistress was the last of these Hugo-winning novels, and it is widely considered his finest work. It is a tale of revolution, of the rebellion of the former Lunar penal colony against the Lunar Authority that controls it from Earth. It is the tale of the disparate people--a computer technician, a vigorous young female agitator, and an elderly academic--who become the rebel movement's leaders. And it is the story of Mike, the supercomputer whose sentience is known only to this inner circle, and who for reasons of his own is committed to the revolution's ultimate success.
