The Wassail-Bowl.

SMITH, Albert

  • Quantity available: 1
London: Richard Bentley, 1843. First edition. Two small octavo volumes. Each volume with frontispiece engraving by John Leech (and with numerous textual additions by same). Both half-titles present. Publisher's ads at rear of second volume. Quarter morocco over marbled boards, spine titles in blind. A very clean set in an attractive binding. This is an interesting series of essays, chief among them being that of the Laudanum Patient. Wassailing is an ancient English tradition that is said to go back as far as Saxon and Viking times. The word ÔwassailÕ comes from the Old English ÒWaes haelÓ meaning ÒGood HealthÓ, to which the response would be ÒDrinc hael, and drinking was at the heart of wassailing. The tradition has always varied from manor to manor, from monastery to guild and street to street where wassailing latter became part of house to house carolling during Christmas tide.

Camp Stoneman, CA: Information and Education Branch, 2945. First edition. 4 1/2 x 5 2/4 inches. 32 pp. Illustrated. Publisher's stapled self wrapper with a depiction of a returning soldier in blue on the front. Very good. OCLC only locate three copies. Camp Stome was located near the town of Pittsbutgh, CA, in Conta Costa County, about 40 miles northeast of San Francisco. The idea for Camp Stoneman was born soon after Pearl Harbor in response for the urgent need for a large cantonment area at which port processing of troops in transit could be housed, fed and transported. The plans for such a camp were, of course, in the works of War Plans before the Japanese attack. The main requirement was that such areas have available three types of transportation--water, rail and highway. There were two rail lines in the Pittsburg area, Southern Pacific and Santa Fe.

Buffalo, NY: George Werner, 1901. First edition, Oblong quarto. [12] pp. Printed on rectos only. Illustrated. Publisher's string-tied blue wrappers lettered in silver. Very good; no real issues. This pamphlet is composed of two illustrations of Werner's Speed Wagons (one in color) and the remaining pages tout the excellence of his vehicles. The first wagon shown is labeled No. 2: Regular Speed Wagon and the second is labeled No. 3; Speed Wagon on Wheels. Presumably George had already retired No. 1 (in all three copies located by OCLC there are six leaves present, as here). Werner's speed wagons could probably outrun any vehicle on a 1901 road. They had tubular steel running gear, wire wheels, and pneumatic tires. George Werner founded the family carriage business soon after the Civil War, and produced vehicles for wealthy Buffalonians until 1904.
