Beautiful brown cover with gold engraved inset and print. Bordered in black. Published circa 1862. Mark Guy Pearse (1842 – 1 January 1930) was a Cornish Methodist preacher, lecturer and author who, during the last quarter of the 19th century and the first of the 20th, was a household name throughout Britain and beyond. Born at Camborne, Cornwall, from childhood he "drank in the traditions of Methodism", as his daughter put it. fter a false start in medicine, he studied theology, and in 1863 entered the Wesleyan ministry. His first post on leaving Didsbury College was in Leeds and over the next twenty or so years, he was appointed by the Methodist Conference to ministries in Brixton Hill, Ipswich, Bedford, Highbury, Westminster, Launceston, and Bristol.Very nice copy with gilt illustration on cover and print. It's a novel about a shoemaker, who was also a Methodist "class leader" and his experiences in caring for his "class" of neighbors. Here's a quote from the opening page:"My old friend Daniel Quorm—Brother Dan'el as he was always called—was the village shoemaker, the Methodist "Classleader," and the "Society-steward." As hard-headed as the rounded lapstone on which he hammered all day long, as sharp and quick as his shining awl, as obstinate in holding his own as his seasoned shoe-leather; yet, withal, Brother Dan'el had a heart so kind, so wise, so true, that like the hammer it only beat to do good, and like his awl and thread it was always trying to strengthen some pour soul that had got worn in the rough ways" We provide delivery tracking on US orders.

Endpaper signed by author. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. Sun Valley sheriff Walt Fleming returns in this high-intensity thriller from New York Times- bestselling author Ridley Pearson.

Sun Valley, Idaho-playground of the wealthy and politically connected-is home to an annual wine auction that attracts high rollers from across the country, and Blaine County Sheriff Walt Fleming is the one who must ensure it goes off without a hitch. The world's most elite wine connoisseurs have descended on Sun Valley to taste and bid on the world's best wines, including three bottles claimed to have been a gift from Thomas Jefferson to John Adams. With sky-high prices all but guaranteed for these historic items, it's no wonder a group of thieves is out to steal them. Walt is responsible for all aspects of the glitzy event, from security of the dignitaries to the physical safety of the auction site to the transportation and safeguard of the wines themselves.

Walt is enjoying a rare afternoon of freedom, fly-fishing with his nephew, Kevin, when a passing truck catches his eye- his suspicions throwing him headlong into the discovery of a complicated plan to steal the rare wine. When a bomb detonates just as the auction revs up, the investigation explodes as well, pulling Walt in a dozen different directions. It seems Walt is caught in the middle of a heist of epic proportions-and not the heist he had prepared for-all orchestrated by the ingenious mind of Christopher Cantell, a man who appears to have covered everything, including the way Walt's own sheriff's office will react. Scarce. May have dust spotting on top edge from shelf storage over time.; Walt Fleming; 1.4 x 8.9 x 6.3 Inches; 384 pages; Signed by Author

After graduating in 1968, I became a member of the Calififornia Bar (with pro hoc vice admissions in numerous other states) and have continuously practiced for the past almost one-third of a century. I have devoted my efforts almost exclusively to the defense of the American aerospace industry — airlines, manufacturers of engines, avionics, pilots, airframes, etc. They say that I have tried more 747 cases than anyone else; I know that I have lost the biggest one of all — In Re Air Disaster at Lockerbie, Scotland, where I represented Pan American World Airways and all of the other defendants. Bud was a Pearl Harbor survivor. His father, L. Clinton Coddington, who was a Captain in the Army Air Corps stationed at Hickam Field at the time of the attack, later became a general in the Air Force. His late mother was Patricia Richer Coddington. As a young man Bud loved the Boy Scouts and became an Eagle Scout.Bud graduated from the United States Military Academy West Point, and was proud to be a member of the Long Gray Line. At West Point, Bud was a member of the Debate Team and traveled across the country participating in collegiate debate tournaments. After service in the United States Army, Bud attended the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law (Boalt Hall), and graduated in 1969. ; Engravings, charts;

3050 Perryman, Michael Strange Defeat - The Fall of France NM
Avalanche Press N.D. First Edition; Various Boxed As New with no dust jacket 
Boxed war game. In the spring of 1940, the French Army, generally believed to be the best in the world, again faced her mortal enemy, the German Army. With the last war scarcely 20 years past, this one seemed destined to develop along similar lines. British forces came ashore in strength and both nations made a show of cooperating. Few believed that Belgium could stay out of the conflict, but her leaders continued to act as if it was possible.When the attack finally came, the speed and ferocity of modern warfare overwhelmed the Dutch and Belgian armies in the first few days and the French and British not long after. Air power, paratroopers and massed armor caught the Allies flat-footed and unable to effectively respond. In six short weeks two more countries fell under Nazi control, the French Army was defeated and the British ejected from the continent. None could have foreseen this strange defeat just a few short weeks before.Strange Defeat is a sequel to Defiant Russia and Red Vengeance. Like those games, it’s designed as an easy to learn, fun game. The map portrays the Netherlands, Belgium, western Germany and northern France. ; Video Game; 9.25 X 6.25 X 1.25 inches

3051 Persico, Joseph E. My Enemy, My Brother Men and Days of Gettysburg
Viking Adult 1977 0670498610 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket Signed by Author
Author signed bookplate. Also has former owners bookplate neatly placed. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. In July 1863 the invading Army of Northern Virginia, confident from its victory at Chancellorsville, unexpectedly encountered the Army of the Potomac, still without a general Lincoln could trust, at a small town in Pennsylvania. And there, among the verdant hills, rich fields, and sparkling brooks around Gettysburg, the two armies slaughtered each other in fearful numbers. My Enemy, My Brother is a remarkable re-creation of that battle, told not as military strategists have told it, but the way soldiers, doctors, shopkeepers, farmers, and wives lived it. Drawn from the letters, diaries, and memoirs of the people at Gettysburg, Persico's powerful work chronicles the passions and beliefs, the day-to-day routines, the pain and the terror of those caught up in the epic conflict that, for thousands, became their last role on earth. ; 1.2 x 9.5 x 6.5 Inches; 252 pages; Signed by Author
