Description:
Perfect condition! Shrink Wrap 5 volumes! Long discontinued from Easton Press. Note the progressively decaying Roman columns on the spines. -- This edition published by Easton Press was groundbreaking with his own text and even his footnotes where Gibbon offers some wry observations. Alternately scholarly and witty, this is more than a history of Rome; these events and issues shaped Western Civilization. It has often been called the greatest work of history every written in any language This work has been a foundation of great personal libraries for over 200 years. Rome didn't fall in a day, but why did it fall? Why did languages like Etruscan die out? How did Latin give way to the various modern languages we speak today? Why did Christianity supplant paganism? How did Roman rulers use religion to hold power, or keep peace? What were the splits in the early Christian church? How did Islam begin and why did it spread like wildfire? How did the Crusades get started? How did the great… Read more

"IF THESE DESCRIPTIONS SOMETIMES SEEM UNCOMFORTABLY LIKE RACIAL LABELS, THIS IS BECAUSE THE GROUP AREAS ACT ENSURED THAT FOR OVER FORTY YEARS PEOPLE WERE GEOGRAPHICALLY SEGREGATED ALONG RACIAL LINES; SEPARATE DEVELOPMENT ENSURED THAT VARIETIES OF ENGLISH DEVELOPED SEPARATELY, THE VOCABULARY OR ENGLISH USAGE OF EACH GROUP BEING ONLY PARTIALLY UNDERSTANDABLE TO OTHERS." Signed Limited edition of the first dictionary of South African English, a project that took 25 years to complete. One of only 100 copies signed by Nelson Mandela.

Description:
The last edition to be edited by Johnson himself, presented is Sixth Edition of Samuel Johnson's "most amazing, enduring and endearing one-man feat in the field of lexicography… The preface ranks among Johnson's finest writings… It is the dictionary itself which justifies Noah Webster's statement that 'Johnson's writings had, in philology, the effect which Newton's discoveries had in mathematics" (PMM 201). Published shortly after Johnson's death (Dec 13, 1784), this edition contains many revisions Johnson had planned after the Fourth Edition (1773). Too, it is the first edition to carry Dr. Johnson's portrait. No missing pages, text generally fresh, usual foxing and a neat previous owner's signature. Handsomely bound in calf and printed cloth. $1000. We specialize in rare Ayn Rand, history, and science.

Description:
Scarce First Edition in rare dust jacket, one of only 1,000 copies of Rose Wilder Lane's The Discovery of Freedom Long out of print, the few copies in existence circulated for years, read and reread as an underground cult classic in the literature of freedom and capitalism. Along with Isabel Paterson's The God of the Machine and Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead, all originally published in 1943, Lane's masterpiece solidifies her as one of the three "Mothers of Liberty." A second printing, issued in 1971, confirmed Lane's thesis that "YES, INDIVIDUALISM HAS THE STRENGTH TO RESIST ALL ATTACKS" A very good or slightly better copy in a dust jacket with some edgwear. A highly desirable copy of an important work, rare in jacket. Book #C3001. $1900. We specialize in rare Ayn Rand, history, and science.
