Journals of don Diego de Vargas (6 volumes) plus Remote Beyond Compare. ALL SIGNED!!

by Kessell, John - editors

Condition: Very Fine/None

All six volumes of the "Journals" are very fine, & SIGNED, in like slipcases. "Remote Beyond Compare" is fine & SIGNED but, did not come w/slipcase so we jury-rigged one that looks good on the shelf but, you can see that it is "home made" from the photos. Except for editors' signatures there are NO other marks or writing in any of the books. All books have mylar covers in addition to the slipcases. "Remote Beyond Compare - Letters of don Diego de Vargas to His Family ..." is NOT meant to be part of the Journals but, is complementary to them. It is a limited Collectors Edition and is #3 of 100 issued, and is signed by ALL the contributors. The "Journals" are part of a limited, SIGNED set by the principal contributors (John Kessell, Rick Hendricks, Meredith Dodge and Larry Miller*). This set is #3 of 25 so it numerically matches the #3 of "Remote". But, in addition to the signatures of the main contributors, the books are signed by ALL other contributors save for Ignacio Avellaneda, (Associate Editor) "To the Royal Crown Restored", who died before publication - (SEE PHOTOS). Breakdown: V1. "By Force of Arms - 1691-1693". Signed by the main contributors AND, Alison Frees (Research Assistant) AND Gerald Mandell (Research Consultant); V2. "To the Royal Crown Restored - 1692-1694". Signed by the main contributors AND, Jose Esquibel (Research Consultant); V3 Part 1 & Part 2 (really V4). "Blood on the Boulders - 1694-1697". Both volumes signed by the main contributors AND Richard Flint (Assistant Editor) AND John Colligan* (Research Consultant); V5. "That Disturbances Cease - 1697-1700". Signed by the main contributors - no other contributors listed. V6. "Settling of Accounts 1700-1704". Signed by the main contributors - no other contributors listed. ALL VOLUMTES ARE GIFT QUALITY!


Note: Although the photo shows that the Journals are #3 of a set of 75, only 25 sets were signed (at our bookstore) by the main contributors but, the majority of the 25 were actually broken up and sold individually. John Kessell (Principal Editor) has set #1, Rick Hendricks (Official Historian for the State of New Mexico) has set #2, which were signed ONLY by the main contributors. Set #3 is the one for sale here and is signed by ALL contributors - SEE ABOVE.
