Blood and Wine

By Hawkes, Ellen

NY: Simon and Schuster, 1993. Book. Very Good+. Hardcover. 1st Edition. A full number line, hard cover in jacket that, if not flawless, is presentable, no tears, largely white, unsoiled. I rarely comment on the books finding the commentary on some rather lengthy and unhelpful, if invariably enthusiastic.--- I will make an exception here. In any case, I read this one years ago and was impressed with the authors grasp of the troubled corporate and family history. A long look at Prohibition lore and Gallo's marketing of it's line, as well as the shabby treatment accorded Joseph the forgotten brother. I always surmised that the book was suppressed for it's "warts and all' look at it's subject. A solid book and jacket, clean, unmarked, heavily indexed and footnoted. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately.

By Cassady, Neal

NY: Blast books, 1993. Book. Good+. Hardcover. 1st Edition. Sub-title, "letters from prison 1958-1960". Sound, indeed attractive, hardcover with a pair of flaws to note. The book (pale gray cloth w/ gilt lettering) has a name/brief inscription penned neath the front dj flap, also here is a tea-like stain thumb nail size, which has transferred to the adjacent endsheet. Jacket has several short tears, some associated creasing, yet, should add nicely to the book in it's mylar wrapper. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately.

This listing is for 3 hardcovers re the noted Danish author, they are sold as a group at the listed price with one book priced domestic media mail shipping. Details above for the Migel.

The others are Langbaums critical work " The Gayety Of Vision" and "Johannessons "The World Of Isak Dinesen" both with some neat penned underline, both unjacketed, the Johannesson quite cocked.

Jefferson Davis In Blue

By Hughes, Nathaniel Cheairs

Baton Rouge: LSU Press, 2002. Book. Fine. Hardcover. 1st Edition. This newish hardcover has unpriced jacket, but given the lack of other BCE indications (no debossing, no small square BCE code on jkt.) we assume it is LSU product, full number line/year line/first printing statement. Unpriced is customary for many University presses, glad to be corrected re LSU if we are mistaken. Sub-title, "The life of Sherman's relentless warrior." Crisp bright copy, jacket similar. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately.

Louis XIV

By Bluche, Francois

Ny: Watts, 1990. Book. Good+. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 1st US it would seem, translation by Greenglass. Unmarked, jacketed hardcover made good 1st impression. However, the top edge of the text has a bit of smudginess, quite mild, but there. Also there is a bit of overall warp, indicating problem in storage. this said and while not collectible beauty-wise it would make splendid, sound reading copy. 702 pages, too thick for standard fast/international, USPS media mail at our usual price. A very well thought of biography. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately.

Kronburg

By V. Andrian-Werburg, Klaus

Allgau: Verlag fur Heimatpflege Kempten, 1969. Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. Text/inscription/ publication data all in German and since I have none I may be botching the recording of it. Inscription to US senator Frank Church, dated 1970 seems to be from "Franzum Luise von Vequal-Westernach," is on 1st endsheet. Lavishly done many gatefolds, the last of which appear to be genealogies/family trees? of German nobility, perhaps the forebears of the signer? A handsome job of book making, slick pictorial boards, heavy stock, tipped in plates. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately.
