Description:
NY: North American Review Publishing Company, 1902. Magazine. Good. Soft cover. First Edition. 8vo. Entire issue, volume 174, No. 6, June, 1902, in original red-orange wraps with black lettering, edges untrimmed, very shallow chipping along edge of front wrap, light soiling, mostly at rear wrap, spine chipped about 1/4-inch at tail, rubbed about 1/2-inch at head, with minor loss, front wrap generally bright and clean. Presentation exceeds description. From the notes on contributors concerning the author, "He was among the first to take up the automobile, and after he became interested in aeronautics, some five years ago, he conceived the idea of using in balloons of cylindrical form compact and light motors such as are employed in automobiles, in the attempt to build a practicable air-ship. The experiments in which he has been engaged since then - in the course of which he has several times narrowly escaped death - have attracted universal attention and have resulted in a marked improvement in… Read More

Description:
Garden City: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1943. Book. Good. Hardcover. Inscribed by Author(s). 8vo. Four-line signed inscription at front fly of book, "For Don DeVoss / from his friend / Margaret Mitchell / August 12th, 1944." Unknown provenance, but we do know the author was very active during WWII, including writing letters, offering humor and encouragement, and sympathy, to enlisted men. We also know from many examples of her signature that she used a more formal, controlled hand -- including the capital E's in both words of her name -- for certain things, such as signing copies of Gone With The Wind, and a less formal, more free-form signature for other things, such as personal letters. We have seem numerous examples of both from various MM archives. We have been unable to determine the identity of the recipient. The book itself is a good copy, with minor general wear, in a somewhat worn and soiled dust jacket, with shallow chipping at the spine ends and ends of folds,… Read More

Description:
Boston: Fields, Osgood, & Co., 1868. Magazine. Good. Hardcover. First American Edition. 4to. Entire Volume VI, binding copy, marbled front board detached but present, rear board missing, spine leather missing, first and final few pages brittle and chipped, NOT affecting the Verne piece, a great candidate for the binder. This is the first appearance in English of parts of the author's first novel, a few pages excerpted from the book of the same title that would be published by D. Appleton, NY, 1869, after having been published multiple times in France beginning in 1863. Verne, who was relatively unknown in the English - speaking literary world, was misidentified by the editors of the present piece as "M. Jules Berne." It is generally believed the editors thought this piece was non-fiction. From the editor's preface, "I must begin by stating that I cannot guarantee the authenticity of the following remarkable adventures. I merely repeat them here, confiding in the good… Read More

Description:
Pittsburgh: The Scholastic Publishing Company, 1931. Magazine. VG. Soft cover. 4to. Entire issue, Volume 18, Number 7, May 2, 1931, in original printed wraps, generally bright and clean with very light wear-only, and a bit of dust soiling at top and fore edge. In 1931, while yet a senior at West Seattle High School, Seattle, Washington, the author -- who would go on to fame, and tragedy, in Hollywood and the theater -- entered and won $100 from The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, a writing contest for high school students sponsored by Scholastic Magazine, with the present, controversial essay. In her autobiography, Will There Really Be A Morning?, Farmer wrote that the essay was influenced by her reading of Friedrich Nietzsche: "He expressed the same doubts, only he said it in German: Gott ist tot. God is dead. This I could understand. I was not to assume that there was no God, but I could find no evidence in my life that He existed or that He had ever shown any particular interest in me.
