Hardback in Dust Wrapper. 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.

London, R. Totell, 1562. 12o, 19th century full leather. Some writing in ink on the title page, a few annotations in the margins. Cut short, with some loss. Exlibris of Daniel de Bruin. (18)+464 (numbered 1-232) + (6) pag. Illustrated with a woodcut title (coat-of-arms partly hand coloured), 2 full page woodcuts in the text and numerous woodcuts of coats-of-arms in the text. This first edition does not have the folding Hercules plate. Gerard Legh (?-1563) produced only one publication, of which this is the first edition (later editions 1568, 1572, 1576, 1591, 1597, and 1612). This indicates the wide popularity of the book, probably the most read heraldic work in the 16th century. It is written in form of a colloquy between ‘Gerarde the Herehaught and Legh the Caligat Knight.’ Richard Argall of the Inner Temple supplied a prefatory address and probably part of the latter passages of the book. In endeavouring to explain the art of heraldry, Legh is purposely obscure from fear of trenching on the official privileges of the College of Arms. The work supplies what appears to be a portrait of Legh himself in the fictitious character of 'Panther Herald'. The author died of the plague on 13 October 1563, and was buried on the 15th at St. Dunstan-in-the-West, where a monument was erected to his memory. H79. Artikel-Nr.: 60933.

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. $2,000. * 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. Prideaux p.331; Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs, vol 3, p. 676. Artikel-Nr.: 77359.

3 volumes, octavo. Original straight-ribbed brown cloth, spines panelled in blind and lettered in gilt, decorative panel-stamps to boards in blind, cream surface-paper endpapers. Vergenoeg bookplate of Alpheus Fuller Williams (1874-1953, noted American-born South African mining engineer) and recent monogram label of travel collector Humphrey Winterton to front pastedowns; numerical ink-stamp and 19th-century ownership inscription of one Elizabeth Crosse to the front free endpapers. Spines rolled, very light wear to headcaps, sides lightly rubbed, corners bumped, plates lightly spotted or offset, front free endpaper vol. 1 slightly damp-stained in gutter, front inner hinge of vol. 2 partially and only superficially cracked, folding map with two closed tears repaired verso with brown paper. A very good, bright copy. Wood-engraved vignettes to title pages, tinted lithographic frontispiece to vols. 1 and 2, hand-coloured lithographic frontispiece to vol. 3, chromolithographic dedication leaf to Queen Victoria, folding map. Second edition, revised, of this "epic of travel and exploration" (Czech); an attractive set in the original cloth. Harris (1807-1848), an engineering officer in the Bombay Army, had already travelled widely in southern Africa in search of big game when in September 1841 he was "sent in charge of a mission to establish relations with the ancient 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 (June 1844)" (ODNB). The kingdom was then almost entirely unknown to outsiders, and Harris describes the settlements and hinterland of the country in great detail. His account is also an example of the pioneering chromolithographic method of Charles Hullmandel, who had introduced the technique to Britain with four illustrations for George Hoskins's Travel in Ethiopia (1835), though by the early 1840s was already concentrating instead on tinted lithography rather than the difficult coloured form (Gascoigne, Milestones in Colour Printing 1457-1859, p. 37). The Highlands of Aethiopia was originally published earlier the same year; the lengthy introduction to this second edition is a spirited, detailed riposte to criticisms levelled at the first edition. Fumagalli, describing it as "a very interesting work", also notes the "very important" appendix of James Macqueen, "Abyssinia constructed from the latest and best authorities, with additions by Major Harris".

3 volumes octavo. Original terracotta finely-diapered cloth, title gilt to spines, blind stamped compartments to the spine and panels to the boards, cream surface-paper endpapers. 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).

Quarto (285 × 208 mm). Contemporary calf, neatly rebacked with original spine laid down, flat spine, title gilt direct. Contemporary armorial bookplate of Abraham Caldecott, former Accountant General to the Bengal Presidency, to front pastedown, together with the slightly later plate of William Woodville Rockhill, American adventurer and diplomat. A little rubbed, with some judicious restoration and refurbishment at the extremities and on the joints, light browning throughout, the occasional spot of foxing, some offsetting from the plates, the large map with professional repairs at the folds and to an old tear, formerly stub-mounted, but now laid in for ease of opening, overall a very good copy. Hand-coloured aquatint frontispiece and 12 other similar plates, one uncoloured aquatint, large folding engraved map (opening 637 × 789 mm) coloured in outline, and one similar full-page map. First edition of this superbly detailed regional study, well illustrated by the series of costume plates – "of excellent quality" (Abbey) – which are closer to individuated portraits than the "types" usually encountered in such works. Elphinstone stands out as one of the most remarkable figures in establishment of British hegemony in India in the early 19th century. The son of the 11th Baron Elphinstone, he went out to India in 1795 at the age of 16 as a writer in the service of the East India Company. In 1801 he was appointed assistant to Sir Barry Close, resident at the court of Baji Rao the Peshwa at Poona. The Peshwa was virtual head of the Mahratta confederacy and is described in the first DNB as "an avowed poltroon". He was overthrown by Holkar at the Battle of Poona. Holkar refused British requests to reinstate the Peshwa which led to the Second Mahratta War. Elphinstone was attached to Wellington's staff in the Deccan and saw action at the Battles of Assaye and Argaum and the Siege of Gawilarh. The general remarked of Elphinstone then that he had "mistaken his profession and ought to have been a soldier." Advanced to the important post of resident at the court in Nagpur in 1804, in 1808 he was favoured further with the position of ambassador to the Afghan court at Kabul where he was to assess the extent of French penetration, who had already established an embassy in the Persian capital, and to persuade Shah Shuja into a defensive alliance. "Elphinstone's mission to Kabul was formally a failure. Suspicious of the British, the Afghan court refused to allow the embassy to proceed beyond the border town of Peshawar. Shah Shuja was only prepared to make an alliance in return for substantial British aid which the envoy was unable to offer. Meanwhile, a revolt in Kashmir had made the shah's tenure of power increasingly precarious. Elphinstone did, however, return to India with a mass of new information about the Punjab and the north-west Elphinstone's subsequent Account of the Kingdom of Caubul continued to inform British policy on the north-western frontier until the 1840s" (ODNB). Elphinstone remained in India for the next 20 years, "First as resident at Poona, then as lieutenant-governor of Bombay. As a civil administrator he served with distinction, and is often regarded as the founder of the system of state education in India. He twice refused the offer of the governor-generalship of India" (Howgego). Abbey Travel 504; Colas 960; Howgego, II, E10; Lipperheide 1483; Tooley 209. Artikel-Nr.: 105235.

Buch. Neuware - The Dolomites, a range of mountains in the Southern Alps, are widely celebrated for their bizarre rock formations, light colour hues, and pristine nature. It is no coincidence that UNESCO declared the Pale Mountains a World Heritage Site and that, every single year, they attract tourists and nature enthusiasts from all around the globe. This enchanting mountain landscape, which is oftentimes cool and forbidding, has left an indelible mark on its inhabitants. Their veritable treasure trove of myths, legends and mystery stories is an integral part of the rich cultural heritage of the Dolomites: the older generation has always passed down this heritage to a wide-eyed audience comprised of both the young and the young-at-heart. This compilation by Karl Felix Wolff (1879-1966), probably the most prominent regional writer-explorer of legends, contains well-known tales like 'King Laurin and the Alp-Glow' and 'The Kingdom of the Fanes' in addition to lesser known stories such as 'The Nightingale of the Sasslong', 'Iron Hand' and 'Merisana's Wedding'. This book is a unique collection of legends that will shed a new and mystic light on your perspective of the Dolomites. 160 pp. Englisch. Neu. Artikel-Nr.: 9788872834367.

Taschenbuch. Neuware - King Shrewd is dead at the hands of his son Regal. As is Fitz-or so his enemies and friends believe. But with the help of his allies and his beast magic, he emerges from the grave, deeply scarred in body and soul. The kingdom also teeters toward ruin: Regal has plundered and abandoned the capital, while the rightful heir, Prince Verity, is lost to his mad quest-perhaps to death. Only Verity's return-or the heir his princess carries-can save the Six Duchies. But Fitz will not wait. Driven by loss and bitter memories, he undertakes a quest: to kill Regal. The journey casts him into deep waters, as he discovers wild currents of magic within him-currents that will either drown him or make him something more than he was.

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.

Buch. Neuware - Lone parenthood is an increasing reality in the 21st century, reinforced by the diffusion of divorce and separation. This volume provides a comprehensive portrait of lone parenthood at the beginning of the XXI century from a life course perspective. The contributions included in this volume examine the dynamics of lone parenthood in the life course and explore the trajectories of lone parents in terms of income, poverty, labour, market behaviour, wellbeing, and health. Throughout, comparative analyses of data from countries as France, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Switzerland, Hungary, and Australia help portray how lone parenthood varies between regions, cultures, generations, and institutional settings. The findings show that one-parent households are inhabited by a rather heterogeneous world of mothers and fathers facing different challenges. Readers will not only discover the demographics and diversity of lone parents, but also the variety of social representations and discourses about the changing phenomenon of lone parenthood. The book provides a mixture of qualitative and quantitative studies on lone parenthood. Using large scale and longitudinal panel and register data, the reader will gain insight in complex processes across time. More qualitative case studies on the other hand discuss the definition of lone parenthood, the public debate around it, and the social and subjective representations of lone parents themselves. This book aims at sociologists, demographers, psychologists, political scientists, family therapists, and policy makers who want to gain new insights into one of the most striking changes in family forms over the last 50 years.

Buch. Neuware - The Kingdom of David has been the focus of disagreement among biblical interpreters practically since the ascension of Christ. Since Christ was enthroned at the right hand of God the Father when he ascended, many believe he began ruling from that throne at that time. But is this kingdom over which he rules the Davidic Kingdom Reformed scholars say yes; dispensational scholars say no. A new breed of dispensational scholars says yes and no. These «Progressive Dispensationalists» say Jesus has inaugurated the Kingdom of David but will return to the earth to consummate this kingdom with a millennial reign from Jerusalem. Are they right This book uses Psalm 110 in the Old and New Testaments to find an answer. 342 pp. Englisch. Neu. Artikel-Nr.: 9780820445748.
