Chicago S. J. Clarke 1911 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good Hardcover 4to - over 9 
Three large hardcover volumes, three-quarter bound in burgundy cloth with Morocco spines and corners, raised bands and gilt titles and decoration to spines, 10 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches, approx 700 pages per volume, numerous photographs and illustrations throughout; boards scuffed and worn with heavy wear at extremities, small white stain to rear of Volume I, vertical ripple to the center of the spine of Volume I, marbled page edges are a little faded, decorative pink end papers with some discoloration at edges, previous owner's bookplates in front end papers (Ernest Boyd Mac Naughton), pages generally clean and crisp, bindings sound but due to size and weight of these books they require careful handling. Handsome and well preserved books. Volume I consists of a descriptive history of Portland, Oregon and the surrounding area from 1506 until publication, including shipping, railroads, industry, schools, churches, peoples and the first Portland Exposition. Volumes II & III contain biographical sketches of the "builders," or the people who founded and built Portland and created the history discussed in Volume I. Joseph Gaston was himself one of the builders, filling the roles of American railroad executive, journalist, and historian based in Oregon. He is the namesake of Gaston, Oregon, the Joseph Gaston House, and the Gaston-Strong House. He was the first president of the Oregon Central Railroad and an outspoken opponent of railroad executive Ben Holladay. Along with the three volume Portland, Oregon, Its History and Builders, Gaston also authored the four-volume The Centennial History of Oregon, 1811 to 1911. Due to size and weight of set, extra shipping charges may apply.

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.

In the late 19th century, Japan was still largely unknown and exotic to Westerners. However, with the introduction of Japanese aesthetics, particularly at the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1900, Japanese styles became fashionable in Western countries. Consequently, Hearn became known to the world by his writings concerning Japan.

231 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 
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.

261 Joyce, James Ulysses
Paris, France Shakespeare and Company 1926 Hardcover Very Good Hardcover 8vo - over 7 
Eighth printing; hardcover, 8 1/4 x 6 1/2 inches, 735 pages, small printed map of James Joyce's grave location laid in; three-quarter bound in blue marbled paper boards backed and tipped in brown Morocco, banded spine with title blocked in gilt, boards rubbed and scuffed at extremities, bits of leather scuffed away at corners, spine sun faded, decorative end papers, pages toned with age, binding sound. Small, folded mimeographed flyer laid in with the title: Wegweiser zum Grab des Schriftstellers James Joyce im Friedhof Zurich-Fluntern (Signpost to the tomb of the writer James Joyce in the cemetery Zurich-Fluntern). Inside is a brief biography of Joyce, and his wife, Nora-Joyce Barnacle, along with a map showing directions to their graves. The flyer is dated 21.12.62. The paper is toned and creased with some brown spots. Capturing a single day in the life of Dubliner Leopold Bloom, his friends Buck Mulligan and Stephen Dedalus, his wife Molly, and a cast of supporting characters, the author pushes Celtic lyricism and vulgarity to splendid extremes. A modernist novel of supreme stylistic innovation, James Joyce's Ulysses is the towering achievement of twentieth century literature. For Joyce, literature 'is the eternal affirmation of the spirit of man'. Written between 1914 and 1921, Ulysses has survived bowdlerization, legal action and bitter controversy. -- Shakespeare and Company

9 1/4 x 7 inches, unnumbered pages, vibrant color illustrations and two-tone throughout; yellow cloth boards with stamped purple cat and devil to front board, very light wear at extremities, previous owner's book plate in front paste-down, occasional light handling wear to pages and brown spots, binding sound, price clipped dust jacket rubbed and edge worn, small chips out at spine ends and one to bottom rear edge, light damp stain to rear panel, now in protective mylar cover. "This charming little fable was written by James Joyce in a letter to his grandson "Stevie." It is an incongruous but delicious mixture of Irish wit and French folklore that explains the magic overnight construction of an actual bridge across the Loire, a very old bridge over which any young reader who might doubt the tale may still walk or ride his bike this very day." The letter was written by Joyce in 1936, and published in the Letters of James Joyce in 1957. James Joyce never wrote children's books per se but the fanciful imagination and playful wit that flash through all of his worlds are perfect ingredients for a child's book. The charming and whimsical mid-century illustrations of Richard Erdoes perfectly compliment the story.

It was written as part satire in support of Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species. The book was extremely popular in England, and was a mainstay of British children's literature for many decades, but eventually fell out of favor in part due to its prejudices (common at the time) against Irish, Jews, Americans, and the poor.
