Seller ID: 27577


The 1862 map of the territories of Washington and Oregon is a lovely thing with its hand coloring and handsome double face font for lettering. If you look in the lower corner you see the number 57 which indicates it was the 57th plate in Alvin J. Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas published originally by Johnson and Browning in 1862. The question is when was this particular one printed? It states on the map that the publisher was Johnston and Ward which means it's ar... View more info

Red-Hot Holsters; A Skinny Jeebles Story

Price: $25.00

Publisher: Akron, Ohio, Saalfield: 1938

Seller ID: 27846


The chunky Little Big books were the fad back in the 30's. They were cheaply made and cheap to buy, so it's amazing you can still find them in good condition. Here's one that beat the odds with all 396 pages intact and binding not cracked or broken. The only fault is toning to the cheap acidic paper. Illustrations are plentiful -- drawings by Henry Muheim. Book is designed with paper over boards. Minor wear to edges and small crease to corners. The boy who once owned it ... View more info

All that it shows is one light stamp to bottom edge of text block and a stamped number on the bottom of the preface page. Otherwise VERY nice. Book also has a smattering of very small penciled notes beside some listings. These are easily erased, but in this instance may provide additional information of use to the reader. Ha...
