Hardback in Dust Wrapper. GLOWING RED APRIL SALE! 30% OFF! Old man Elverson had built an empire - had clawed it out of the prairie sod with his bare hands in accordance with the unwritten Law of the Rangemen, which came before sheriffs' law and hung on despite it. But no creation of God nor man ever lasted on the Great Plains. Not buffalo nor Indians nor Spanish wild cows nor cattle kingdoms. Each and all of them had their day, and sometimes they sensed their time of passing and sometimes they did not. Jim Elverson came in the second category.Doc McGill was a different kind altogether, a soured-up ex-army medic who'd been at Shiloh, though he, too, was trying to buck retirement for as long as he could. He and Elverson were old friends, but that friendship went up in coal oil and gunsmoke the day they burned Jim's town For more photos or information, use the «Ask Bookseller» button and I'll be pleased to help.

Persia, Turkey and other places, 1930s., 1930
Oblong small folio. 2 albums, the first containing 237 original photographs, the majority snapshots but some larger, mostly captioned by hand, also with a loosely inserted pencil sketch captioned "Our first home Abadan '42. Drawing room with Persian rugs", the second containing 52 original photographs, snapshots or larger, and a further 27 images in paper wallet (some duplicates). Contemp. rexine or papered boards. Fascinating collection of private photos showing the Abadan Oil refinery and life on the site in the 1930s. A series of 120 or so images is devoted to William Catchpole's time on the Abadan oilfields near Basrah and Kuwait. Catchpole became a chemist with the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company in 1933, and presumably was asked to visit the plant in this capacity. The photographs of this period show scenes on the voyages out (aboard the MV British Pride, an Anglo-Iranian tanker), life in Abadan (including the horse races), and the refinery itself. A group of 16 images show elements of the refinery, including the "cracking plant", "distillation units", and other features. Other photographs show the docks, and several show flares in the desert. The second album is undated and uncaptioned, though examination of one loosened photograph reveals a pencilled note to the verso ("Turkey between Harida Pasha and Ankara"). The photographs in the album show recreational and work-related images, including boating events, a pipeline, and three of an unidentified refinery. - William Marcus Catchpole was a grandson of Nathaniel Catchpole, founder of the brewing company Catchpole & Co. of Suffolk. The family and the business were based at Whitton, and some of the images from the first album show scenes and people at home. William Catchpole attended Radley College, and further images show the college and rowers on the river; some 100 images in the first album relate to the family's life in the UK. Artikel-Nr.: 45407.

Hardback. 1st Edition. Modern Boards. [xii], 323 pages ; 18 cm. A very clean copy of Evans-Gordons’ widely influential and highly controversial book. "Major Sir William Eden Evans Gordon (1857 – 1913) , was a British MP who previously served as a military diplomat in India After leaving the Army, Evans Gordon returned to Britain and in 1900 was elected as Conservative Party MP for Stepney on an anti-alien platform. As a result of the pogroms in Eastern Europe, an increasing number of Jews were arriving in Britain either to stay, or en route for America. Evans Gordon, as a 'restrictionist', was heavily and actively involved in the passing of the Aliens Act 1905, which sought to limit the number of people allowed to enter Britain Over a two-month period Evans-Gordon travelled extensively in Eastern Europe, finding out at first hand about the highly restrictive conditions imposed on Jews in the Pale of Settlement and in Rumania. His book (with map) about his fact-finding mission, ‘The Alien Immigrant’ (1903) is an even-handed account of his research The book was used in the evidence that he presented to the Aliens Commission in its inquiries. This eventually resulted in the Aliens Act 1905 which placed restrictions on Eastern European immigration, although discussion of the Bill in Parliament provoked considerable opposition. " (Wikipedia, 2016) Includes map and numerous illustrations from authors photographs of Jewish life in the Pale of Settlement and Eastern Europe including Pinsk, Cracow, Grodno, Dvinsk, Libau, Lodz and St Petersburg.

Eighteenth-Century Manuscript Relating to the Constitutional Law of Hungary [Manuscript]. [Kingdom of Hungary]. Observationes In Tripartitum Opus Juris Consuetudinarii Inclyti Regum Hungariae per Commissionem Systematicam in Arlo 24. 1715 Fundatum hoc 1717 Anno Posony Celebratum, Elaborate. [Arlo, Hungary, 1715-1717, 1726]. [101, 9 blank, 32 pp.] Folio (12" x 8"). Contemporary paneled calf, ties lacking. Moderate rubbing to boards, heavier rubbing to extremities with wear to spine and corners, rear hinge partially cracked, two leaves at rear of text detached, occasional worming to margins with no loss to text, contemporary armorial bookplate to front pastedown. Some toning to interior, text in neat secretarial hand. The second group of notes, 32 pp., are dated 1726. * Two sets of student notes on the Tripartitum. Compiled in 1514 by Istvan Werboczy [c.1465-1541], a Hungarian jurist and statesman, this collection of early customary laws, though never incorporated formally, was regarded as the second pillar of the Hungarian constitution. It was a de facto law-book of Hungary until 1848. According to the doctrine of the Holy Crown, which appeared in the Tripartitum, the king and the legally equal noblemen formulated the "corpse of the Holy Crown," which symbolized the Hungarian state. This manuscript is one such effort, in the early eighteenth century, to coordinate the Tripartitum with Hungary's constitutional statutes. Artikel-Nr.: 61066.

Hand-coloured aquatint, 'drawn on the spot by I. Clark'. Image size (including text): 14 3/4 x 21 1/2 inches. Sheet size: 18 3/4 x 24 3/4 inches. An historically important topographical view of Glasgow in Scotland, from John Clark's 'Views in Scotland'. There is some debate as to who executed this stunning print. There is no reference which identifies the author of this view, but there is some indication that it is the work of the celebrated painter John Heaviside Clark (1770-1863). Born in Scotland, Clark exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy between 1801 and 1832. He was primarily a landscape and marine painter, but he also produced a number of fine aquatints, which exhibit his exceptional talents as an engraver. Known as "Waterloo Clark" for his early sketches of the battle of Waterloo, he was a painter of some repute across the British Isles, and his beautiful views remain some of the most attractive images of the English countryside. A contemporary gazetteer notes that the city was 'the manufacturing and commercial metropolis of Scotland, and the third city of the United Kingdom in point of population, and perhaps of wealth also.' (Fullarton [publisher's] A Gazetteer of the World 1856, III, p.615). According to the same source the population in 1821 was 147,043, the present view taken at about that time shows a city that is increasingly industrialised: factory chimneys are beginning to cast a pall of smoke over the city, but it has not yet come to completely overrun the landscape in which it is set. The population was to more than double in the next 20 years with the census of 1851 recording a population of 346,984. Cf. Abbey Scenery 489; cf.

A little rubbed, corners bumped, spines sunned and with some minor restoration, endpapers slightly discoloured, pale foxing to the plates, light toning, two clean tears to the map professionally repaired, a very good set. Front pastedowns with the ownership inscriptions of the Rev. Thomas Pyne who in 1840 was given responsibility for the guardianship of two princes from the Gold Coast, (John) Ossoo Ansah, son of the reigning king of Ashanti, and his cousin (William) Quanti Massah, the princes had been sent as hostages under a peace treaty of 1831 between the Ashantis and the British government. Pyne's archive at SOAS shows his considerable interest in African affairs. Lithographic frontispiece to each, those in volumes I and II single-tint studies after Bernatz, that in volume III a hand-coloured portrait of Saheela [Sahla] Selassie from a sketch by Harris, chromolithographic dedication leaf and a large folding map to volume I, title-page vignettes. First edition. A soldier of the Bombay Army, Harris has first travelled out to Africa in 1836 for his health. Meeting Richard Williamson, a like-minded Bombay civil servant, on the voyage out, Harris immediately set of on a shooting expedition to the interior. They "started by ox-wagon from Algoa Bay, by way of Somerset and the Orange River, and travelled in a north-easterly direction until they reached the regions of the formidable Matabele chief Mzilikaze. He proved friendly, and permitted the travellers to return to the Cape by a new and previously closed route by summer of 1837" (ODNB). He returned to India becoming field engineer for the Sind army in 1838, and in 1840 he was made superintending engineer to the southern provinces. In 1841 he was sent in charge of the mission to open trade relations with the then virtually unknown Christian kingdom of Shoa in the highlands of Ethiopia. He returned to England with a commercial treaty with that state, and was knighted for his services in 1844, publishing his account in the same year. "The journey through the hinterland of the country is described in great detail, as are the cultures of the various cities that were visited. While this is truly an epic of travel and exploration, there are two sporting incidents of note with a huge buffalo bagged near the Casam River and elephant taken in Galla country" (Czech).

Hardcover, with dustjacket, 211pp., 26.5x23cm., oblong, ills. in col. and b/w., new. ISBN 9076537011. Today, over twenty five years since manufacturing ceased there, the story of Citro'n's factory at Slough ( in its hey-day one of the largest car assembly plants in the United Kingdom ) is little appreciated by Citro'n enthusiasts in both Britain, France and the Netherlands alike - and virtually unknown by the wider motorbook readership around the world. This carefully researched and lavishly illustrated book, the first officially approved and sponsored account of Citro'n's right-hand-drive vehicles, should set the record straight! In examining the first seventy five years of Automobiles Citro'n's presence in Great Britain, Citro'n from A to X reviews the history of Citro'n Cars Ltd and Citro'n UK Ltd at Slough, recalling the vehicles built at the Slough Works between 1926 and 1966 and all those subsequently imported from France from 1966 onwards until the present day. For the benefit of readers unfamiliar with the marque, it begins with a short account of the founding of the Citro'n firm in France and discusses the earliest imports of Citro'n vehicles into the UK by the first concessionaires, Gaston Ltd. It then goes on to examine the complete span of activities that took place at the Slough factory between its opening in February 1926 and its closure in February 1966 - exactly forty years to the day - during which time it assembled vehicles to supply Citro'n's export markets throughout the entire British Commonwealth as well as the home market in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Finally, it records the Citro'n models imported into the UK from Citro'n's contintental factories between 1966 and 1998, and gives a full account of the activities of Citro'n UK Ltd up to the present day. Pre-war, post-war and even wartime vehicle production is fully illustrated by over 200 archive pictures ( many previously unpublished ) together with contemporary advertising and publicity material, and also by a new series of full-colour pictures showing some of the very best surviving historic cars photographed by the leading motoring photographer Neill Bruce. The complete span of right-hand-drive vehicles featured and illustrated includes, amongst others, the conventional pre-war rear-wheel-drive models, the Light Fifteen and Six Cylinder Traction Avant, the 2CV and the Bijou, the DS and ID models and the Citro'n Maserati SM, the GS & GSA and the CX, together with the full range of Citro'n's recent and contemporary products. 0 g.

154x233x25 mm. Taschenbuch. Neuware - Sie ist die Frau des wohl berühmtesten Bloggers der Welt: Ensaf Haidar liebt den Mann, der den Wunsch nach einem freien Leben mit Folter und Gefängnis bezahlt. Raif Badawi wurde in Saudi-Arabien verhaftet und zu 1000 Stockschlägen und zehn Jahren Haft verurteilt - de facto ein Todesurteil. Dass die ganze Welt um ihn bangt, ist seiner Frau zu verdanken. Mit einem selbstgemalten Plakat startete Ensaf Haidar eine Solidaritäts-Kampagne, die die Welt bewegt. Sie sorgt für enormes Interesse an Raifs Schicksal und bringt so das gnadenlose Regime ihres Heimatlandes in Bedrängnis.Die Geschichte von Ensaf und Raif ist eine berührende Liebesgeschichte. Sie erzählt von der Kraft zweier Herzen im Kampf gegen das Unrecht und davon, wofür es sich zu leben lohnt. The whole world knows the face of the young man with the bright black eyes. He is in the process of becoming an icon, a symbol, similar to the famous photo of Che Guevara. The face is that of Raif Badawi, who was nominated for the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize. Arrested in Saudi Arabia, he was sentenced to ten years' imprisonment and 1000 lashes - a de facto death sentence. The woman who succeeded in getting such people as Barack Obama and Prince Charles to appeal personally to the Saudi King for Badawi's release is his wife, Ensaf Haidar, who began the campaign to free her husband with a self-painted poster in front of a small church in Sherbrooke, Canada. When Raif Badawi and Ensaf Haidar fell in love with each other as adolescents, they did so in violation of every moral precept in the strictly Islamic Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. During their clandestine love affair, the young couple had no idea that, more than a decade later, Ensaf's love for Raif would attract the attention of politicians from around the world as the blogger's wife now mobilises global public opinion in an effort to save her husband from murder at the hands of the Saudi judiciary. With a courage born of desperation, she is fighting from exile in Canada to secure the release of the father of her three children, and is bringing great pressure to bear on the murderous regime in her native country. Ensaf Haidar tells Raif's and her own story: the story of their shared liberal ideas and her fight for her husband's release. 256 pp. Englisch. Neu. Artikel-Nr.: 9781408707937.

Holy Roman Empire, Vienna d.d. 8 March 1871. Full purple velvet, front cover decorated with gold embossed imperial coat-of-arms. Good condition. 37x28 cm. Silk endpapers, 8 pages on vellum. Printed decorative margins, text handwritten, with a hand painted coat-of-arms in colour and the original signature of Franz Joseph I. The imperial wax seal is attached by the gold cloth rope of the binding, in a disc shaped wooden case. The seal is cracked. This patent of nobility confirms the "handwritten letter of 10 June 1850", which conferred the status of Knight ("Ritter") to the recipient. Wasa Stoikovics served the Austrian Empire as soldier and became 'oberstleutenant". He deserved his nobility in the year 1849 at the defense of the "Festung Ofen" and was decorated with the Order of the Iron Crown third class, which also meant that he recieved the noble title of Ritter. 21 years after recieving this order, the nobility and his coat of arms are confirmed with this patent of nobility. The siege of Ofen took place from 4-21 May 1849. 5000 soldiers in Austrian service fought against 30.000 rebellious Hungarians who tried to take over the Festung during the War of Independence which followed the Hungarian revolution of 1848. The couragious but small army withstood the vigorous attacks for 17 days. Ofen is the German word for Buda, the western part of Budapest. Wasa Stoikovics is also mentioned to command the Theiszer Kron- und Gross-Kikindaer-Districts-Freiwilligen-Battalion in Italy in 1859. The order of the Iron Crown originally was a Napoleonic order, but was reestablished as an Austrian Order of the same name after the fall of the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy in 1815. H191.

Original cloth, xviii, 393 pp., 181 b/w ills., 3 col. plates, 3 beautiful coloured maps, very good condition. Wonderfully illustrated book on the travels of a rich American, mostly undertaken with his wife and mostly made in Tibet. Cutting was one of the very few Americans with official invitation to visit Lhasa, but also Kathmandu (where he stayed with the ambassador Eric Bailey), at that time perhaps even more difficult. But he even could visit Russian Turkestan, the Nagas in Assam (still difficult today) or the Nakhi in Southeastern Tibet, as well as the Tibetan Kingdom Muli - amazing and a very good read. Heavy book. First edition. Presendation copy "To Roy from Suydam" in other hand noted that it is actually Roy Chapman Andrews copy. Also with the bookplate and ownership inscription of noted collector Richard Tevier Daniel. Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 1300. Sehr gut. Artikel-Nr.: 16649.
