4 Eaton, Charlotte

R.L.S. Robert Louise Stevenson At Manasquan

Ryerson Press

First Thus
Soft Cover
Very Good
Poor




A quarto of 22 pages, limited edition, this being copy 202 of 350, issued at Christmas 1931. First Thus. Original still blue wraps and still has the original wood-grained tissue "jacket" - sadly this jacket is quite worn, but miraculously still present. The book itself is completely fine, the only flaw being that the original publication notice card was taped to one of the endpapers. Nice to have the publishers' notice, unfortunately the tape used has yellowed over time. Otherwise and all in all, a very nice collectable copy

6 Howe, Julia Ward ( Richards, Laura E. )

The Walk with God : Extracts from Mrs Howe's Private Journals, Together with Some Verses Hitherto Unpublished ; and an Essay on Immortality " Beyond the Veil "
New York
E.P. Dutton
1919

First Edition
Hard Cover
Very Good



Illustrated (frontispiece)

Edited by Howe's daughter, in the editors notes she remarks 'My mother left her journals to me, with no suggestion of their being published. Since however the following passages may conceivably help and comfort other seekers of the Way, it seems in accordance with her spirit of love and service to give them to the public..." In additional to the journals, the book also contains extracts previously published under the title "Life and Letters of Julia War Howe", and contains the Essay on Immortality, previously published by Harper. The frontispiece has a wonderful photograph of the author with her signature beneath it. The signature is very well centered and may be an auto-signature, however there is a rough feel to it, denoting possibly an authentic signature. Gift inscription on FFEP. Green cloth boards with gilt lettering on front and spine. Light edge and shelfwear, slight bumping of corners, a touch of sunning on the spine. Very minor rubbing, 4 exceedingly tiny inkspots on front cover, a few more on bottom page edges. Interior very clean and tight

Marvellous original soft cover staple bound book of 32 pages, almost every page containing a photograph of "just a little girl from Georgia". According to Wikipedia: Jane Withers began " a prolific career as a child actress at the age of three, Withers is a Young Artist Award Former Child Star "Lifetime Achievement" Award honoree, best known for being one of the most popular child film stars of the 1930s and early 1940s, as well as for her portrayal of "Josephine the Plumber" in a series of TV commercials for Comet cleanser in the 1960s and early 1970s and probably best known for playing the obnoxious Joy Symthe in the movie she paired with Shirley Temple, Bright Eyes." The book presents some edgewear, chipping and rubbing of covers, some evidence of a long-ago water stain along edges. There are a very pencil marks on the front cover. Interior is surprisingly good, with solid binding and clean fresh pages, albeit a touch age toned.

Sullivan, James Frank

This particular edition was intended for circulation in INDIA and BRITISH COLUMBIA only. Pictorial cover. Sadly the covers are very worn and the backstrip is loose, hinges have mesh exposed at both front and back. Nonetheless, an interesting vintage book with a very interesting piece of cover art. Contains many illustrations by the author (who was a cartoonist, author and illustrator), some "normal" and some macabre. Contains 6 stories - Snit - Blue Eyed Fly - Blue Thing with White Dots - George the Usurper - Nobody the Intruder
