Description:
New York: Oxford University Press. 1925. Signed First edition by the Editor/Author Martha Hale Shackford, Ph.D.. A collection of poetry by Wellesley women, including one of the first book appearances by Helen Hoover Santmyer, a 1918 graduate, whose first novel Ohio Town didn't appear for another 37 years, and her novel ... And Ladies of the Club didn't become a bestseller for an additional 22 years, thus 59 years after this appearance. 52 Libraries have this book but few that are signed by Shackford. Shackford wrote on the poetry of Elizabeth Barrett Browning in the Atlantic. She published other books but was stingy with her signature. Only one copy located. This is her alma mater work as Professor of English Literature at Wellesley College. Book does not have its dust cover and has a bump at the top with wear to the spine at the head and heel. Also has the bookplate of Lucille Cloman Norris. We have only seen one other copy signed.

Description:
A very nice copy of "When MIT was "Boston Tech" 1861-1916 published in 1954 by Samuel Cate Prescott with dust cover. Light toning to dust jacket, price clipped inside cover otherwise near fine. Signed by Prescott to: "Specially inscribed for my long-time friend, Professor Maynard A. Joslyn with the high regards of Samuel C. Prescott." What makes this inscription so interesting is that Joslyn was the father of revolutionizing the California wine making industry starting in 1933. He helped shape the industry to become what it is today by working on such things as 'juice making'...A rare publication for MIT wine drinkers and collectors!
Maynard Alexander Joslyn (July 7, 1904 - November 28, 1984) was a Russian-born, American food scientist who involved in the rebirth of the American wine industry in California following the repeal of Prohibition in 1933. Joslyn was also involved in the development of analytical chemistry as it applied to food, leading to the advancement of food chemistry as a scientific… Read more

Volume 3, M2 has a marginal repair and boards are loose on Volume 1 and Volume 3 has upper joint split. Cloth Slip-case, a little rubbed at the extremities but the binding is superb and certainly worthy of repair. Gold leaf edges with gold leaf filigree and wonderful Red Moroccan leather.
