[London]: Te Daily News, 1910. Large (9 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches) souvenir card that was sold at the famous Bournemouth aviation meet of 1910. It is almost entirely taken up with photographic portraits of aviators at the Meet; Paulhan, Farman, Rolls, Graham-White, Grace and Cockburn. Also there are two portraits of city officials and three scenic views of the town. Unfortunately this meeting was also the place where Charles Rolls (a director and co-founder of Rolls-Royce Ltd.) crashed and died in his Wright brothers airplane (his image is on the right side of the card)., His Wright flyer was built in England rather than by the American Wright company, and his crash was attributed to the inferior construction. In 1910 Bournemouth was celebrating its centenary, and as part of the festivities held an aviation meeting at Southbourne Aerodrome where 19 competitors could compete for cash prizes. Categories included longest flight, speed, altitude and slowest speed. The world speed record at the time was just 47 mph. The ... Read more

Los Angeles: D. A. Hufford & Co., 1902. Second edition (published same year as the first and exactly the same; probably just a second printing or perhaps just a sales ploy). Twelvemo. 43, [1, publisher's ads] pp. plus 17 full page photographic illustrations and one plate. Publisher's stiff green wrappers with black lettering. Nicely bound into green cloth with gilt spine lettering. Gutter margin with placement holes for 3-ring binder. Very clean and attractive. A very early account of a trip to Death Valley. Edwards discounts it as 'apocryphal' but there can be do doubt that the trip was taken. The author and his party entered Death Valley by way of Saugus, Antelope Valley and Randsburg. While perhaps some of Swamper Ike's tales may have been fanciful the details of their route and watering holes are not. We also must commend Hufford for his early early attitudes of conservation: ""There has been a great deal of talk the last few years about turning water upon the desert and cutting it up in 40-acre ranches ...

Oakland: Horwinski Printing Co., 1927. First edition. Octavo. [8] pp. Two page of photographs showing construction; portraits on inside front wrapper; view of bridge on rear wrapper. publisher's printed and illustrated wrappers, stapled. A very good copy. The bridge, of course, is no longer present, having been recently torn down with a modern replacement. The Carquinez Bridge is actually two bridges. The original crossing opened in 1927, and to accommodate the ever-increasing traffic flow on Interstate 80, Caltrans in 1958 constructed a parallel bridge to function as the eastbound span. The original span was replaced in 2003 by a graceful new suspension bridge, which carries westbound vehicular traffic across the Carquinez Strait as well as bicycles and pedestrians on a bicycle and pedestrian pathway. The new bridge is named for the late Bay Area iron worker Al Zampa, who helped construct the original Carquinez Bridge as well as other Bay Area toll bridges. No copies listed in OCLC/WorldCat.
