By Black, C.A.

Madison: American Society of Agronomy, 1965. Book. Good -. Hardcover. Presume 1st. A heavy pair of books, will ship domestic media mail at our customary one book price. Fast and international shipping will require surcharge as these will not fit in flat rate envelope. V. 1, Physical and mineral properties etc. V.2 Chemical etc. These books show no additional printings/prior printings or revisions, am assuming them to be firsts. They are a fully usable decent pair graced with many cosmetic issues. IE bumping, board tip abrasion, Owners name stamps on first sheets of vol. 1. text else unmarked. I missed it at first as the efffect is mild, but the lowest 1" of v.2 text caught some water, trace wave, trace stain darken, quite mild. V. 1 spine top and upper board edges have creasing and notable cloth nicks. Both books have the V. number felt penned on spine exterior. All this said, these will give many years of good service. Foto will follow and be placed with listing. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately.

Mineral Facts and Problems, 1975- A Dictionary Of Mining, Mineral, and Related Terms-2 Books

By Bureau of Mines

Wash. D.C.: US Dept. Of Interior, 1975. Book. Good+. Hardcover. Bicentennial Edition. Decent used hard cover. Edge shows some thumbing, not badly corner bumped, binding solid. Some cover scar and edge abrasion, fairly mild. Text wholly unmarked. Huge 1250+ page book can ship domestic media mail at our usual one book price. Fast/international shipping will need surcharge. JUST RECEIVED and added to the above for sale as a pair at the listed price with one-book priced domestic media mail shipping, this will be quite a bargain as these monsters total over 10 lbs. The Dictionary is frightfully rough and is being combined here as I am reluctant to jettison an item with such worthwhile content, IT IS A READING COPY only. Boards have much sunning and abrasion, binding shot, fully gapped at front and back hinge. 1968 date, unmarked text aged but OK. Could be crudely repaired with binding tape and white glue. Proper restoration would be prohibitively expensive. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. Books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, and graded, using the strict, traditional standards. For this reason, we have virtually zero returns.*.
