4104 Wheeler, Vivian , Mckinney, Roy The John Wheeler Family of Charles County Maryland, Correction Notes (photocopy only)
1960's PhotoCopy; Various Manila Folder or Binder Very Good with no dust jacket 
These are loose notes of a Vivian Wheeler who discovered an error in the Genealogy of John Wheeler 1630-1693 of Charles Co. Md and Some of his descendents published by Walter V. Ball in 1966. There also seems to be additions made by a Roy McKinney in 1986. The focus is on Ignatius Wheeler a great grandson of John on page 63 (Ball work) and one Ingatius Wheeler also a great grandson of John on page 48. She discovered that the information is incorrect and documents same. This section has 48 pages with index. There is also a section with numbers from 1-63 (less pages 12-43 which are missing) which looks to be copied from the Ball book. The final section is a 17 page section of type written notes on this line of Wheelers. If accurate, this corrective work is a valueable resource for this family line. "The absolute validity is not warranted, but what work of genealogy is? ; Photocopy Only; 8vo 8" - 9" tall;

4118 White, Randy Wayne The Sharks of Lake Nicaragua True Tales of Adventure, Travel, and Fishing

Signed by Author on Title Page. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. Whether he's engaging in mock aerial combat or riding an Ididarod sled, Randy Wayne White is one of America's most adventurous travelers. In this collection he studies anti-terrorist driving techniques, dives for golf balls in an alligator-infested pond at a country club, hunts his fellow man with a paint gun, ice-fishes for walleye with X-ray-stunned night-crawlers, and goes pig-shooting with Dr. Pavlov. With self-effacing optimism, White captures the joys and fears of wandering the earth's surface with an eclectic cast of weirdo fellow-travelers - a frog that won't jump, a group of expatriate Brits who've developed an interesting cure for "road jaundice," and even a mad Australian scientist. Though he rarely finds what he's looking for - like the legendary landlocked bull sharks of Lake Nicaragua, or the secret to successful winter fishing on a Minnesota lake - he develops a Zen-like "passion for the means" and a rare ability to revel in the rib-aching humor of each exotic trip.

Green cover with black print. Detailed chapter notes. Matthew Parker (6 August 1504 – 17 May 1575) was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1559 until his death in 1575.

Parker was one of the primary architects of the Thirty-Nine Articles, the defining statements of Anglican doctrine. The Parker collection of early English manuscripts, including the book of St. Augustine Gospels and Version A of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, was created as part of his efforts to demonstrate that the English Church was historically independent from Rome, creating one of the world's most important collections of ancient manuscripts.

4128 Whitney, George Some account of the early history and present state of the town of Quincy, in the commonwealth of Massachusetts

This is a very worn copy with many chips around outside of pages. Covers have been re-stapled. None of the text on pages are affected by the ragged edges of pages. There is the signature "Horatio Alger, Chelsea" on cover AND on title page at top. It is suspected that this is the signature of the father of Horatio Alger, Jr.. Horatio Sr. was a Univeralist preacher and lived in Chelsea (where he also served part-time as the postmaster, farmer, and grammar school teacher) where Jr. was born in 1832. Sr. had financial troubles and in 1844 he moved from Chelsea to Marlborough, Massachusetts for a higher paying position. In 1845 he was installed as pastor of the Second Congregational Society. Horatio Jr. attended Gates Academy and entered Harvard at the age of 16. He went on to become one of the most prolific 19th century American authors. Horatio Jr. followed in his fathers footsteps and became a Unitarian minister in addition to writer. The publication date of this imprint corresponds to Horatio Jr's birth and childhood and the publisher The Christian Register (1821–1957) was the leading American Unitarian weekly, published by the American Unitarian Association further confirming association of both Horatio Sr. and Jr. to the publisher. A nice provenance to the imprint. Booklet now in archival sleeve to protect condition. Rare if not unique imprint.

4157 Williamson, Gideon Brooks Roy T. Williams Servant of God
Kansas City, MO Nazarene Publishing House, Kansas City, MO 1947 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Signed by Author
Blue cover gold lettering. Dust Jacket has minor chips in bottom edge and now in Mylar Protective Cover. Signed by author. Roy Williams was born in Milam, Texas on February 14, 1883. His family moved to Many, Louisiana when he was five years old. Williams was not exposed to religion during his childhood; however, at the age of 16 he attended a revival at a Methodist church. It was then that he began practicing Methodism, and although he was originally ridiculed by his family for his decision, they eventually converted to Methodism themselves. In 1908, Williams attended a General Assembly of the Church of the Nazarene with his wife Eunice Harvey Williams and was ordained a minister.Among the first graduates at Texas Holiness University, Williams became the president of the university in 1911 at the age of 28. As president, he changed the name to Peniel University, and it was renamed Peniel College by a later president. Williams resigned in 1913 to become an evangelist, which he continued until 1916 when he was named the General Superintendent of the Church of the Nazarene after the deaths of the two current superintendents. At 33 years old, he was the youngest person to hold that position, and a later General Assembly set the age limit to 35. He served from 1916 until the end of his life in 1946, the longest time that anyone had ever served.Williams was to give a speech in Columbus, Georgia on October 21, 1945; however, he woke up that morning feeling ill and unable to talk, so the pastor of the church took him to the hospital. When he was fit to travel again, he was taken to his cabin in Missouri. He died on March 25, 1946, days after his arrival at his cabin.The library on the campus of Southern Nazarene University is named after him. About the Author: Gideon Brooks Williamson (1898-1981) was a minister, president of Eastern Nazarene College (1936-1944), general president of the Nazarene Young People's Society (1932-1940), and general superintendent in the Church of the Nazarene (1946-1968).[edit] BiographyWilliamson was born November 26, 1898 in New Florence, Missouri, converted and called to preach at an early age in the Church of God (Holiness), and joined the Church of the Nazarene in 1919 when he graduated from John Fletcher College at University Park, Iowa.[1] He pursued further studies at McCormick and Northern Baptist Seminary in Chicago, Illinois. He pastored for 16 years, at the Austin Church in Chicago, the Cleveland First Church of the Nazarene in Ohio, and, after he left the presidency at Eastern Nazarene in Massachusetts, the First Church of the Nazarene in Kansas City, Missouri.

Stated first edition. Green cover with yellowish lettering. Dust is grey, green, and Red with very minor chips around edge.. Dust now in protective cover. Harry Leon Wilson (May 1, 1867 – June 28, 1939) was an American novelist and dramatist best known for his novels Ruggles of Red Gap and Merton of the Movies. His novel Bunker Bean helped popularize the term flapper. He began work as a stenographer after leaving home at sixteen. He worked his way west through Topeka, Omaha, Denver, and eventually to California. He was a contributor to the histories of Hubert Howe Bancroft, and became the private secretary to Virgil Bogue. Wilson returned to New York where he met Booth Tarkington in 1904, and Tarkington and Wilson traveled together to Europe in 1905. The two completed the play The Man from Home in 1906 in Paris. The play was a resounding success and was followed by more collaborations with Tarkington, but none repeated the success of the first.[2] Wilson was elected to the National Institute of Arts and Letters in 1922.

Brown cover gold print. Hinges a bit shaken. Yellowing to some pages from age. Former owners name written inside front cover. Also signed in the front is "Helen M. Bailey, American Embassy, Mexico City". Helen Miller Bailey, PhD, taught at East Los Angeles College for more than forty years. She used a series of travel films for instructional purposes in the classroom as well as in travel lectures for the general public. Bailey spent eleven summers in Mexico, Central America, and South America between 1933 and 1954, and wrote several books about Latin American history and society. The term tidewater may be correctly applied to all portions of any area, including Virginia, where the water level is affected by the tides (more specifically, where the water level rises when the tide comes in). In the case of Virginia, the Tidewater region includes the land east of the Fall Line, the natural border with the Piedmont Region. It includes Hampton Roads, the rest of the Virginia Peninsula, the Middle Peninsula, the Northern Neck, and the Eastern Shore. Planters in the early American colonies extended their tobacco productions above the Fall Line, where waterfalls or rapids mark the end of the Tidewater and the beginning of the foothill region known as the Piedmont. About the author: Wrote books about Washington's Mount Vernon, Jefferson's Monticello and the Potomac and Hudson Rivers. Served as a lieutenant commander in the US Navy during World War I. His father, John Augustine Wilstach (1824-1897), received critical acclaim for his translations of works by the Roman author Virgil and Dante's "Divine Comedy". ; Photographs, Black and White; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 326 pages; ; Signed by Notable Personage, Unrelated

4186 Witt, Linda & Judith Bellafaire & Britta Granrud & Mary Jo Binker "A Defense Weapon Known to Be of Value" Servicewomen of the Korean War Era
Hanover, N. H. UPNE 2005 1584654716 First Edition; Various Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Dark green cover, no dust. Book is new, just no dust jacket. Extensively researched, this book provides compelling insight from a feminist viewpoint that addresses discriminatory legislation and regulations that prevented women from realizing their fullest potential and integration into the military. The individual stories woven into the text add interest and complement the historical content. The chapter on the nurses is particularly powerful. Their service of caring, courage and dedication under the most hazardous and austere conditions are the hallmarks of the noble profession of military nurse." (Brig. Gen. Connie L. Slewitzke, U.S. Army, Retired ) ; 1.1 x 9 x 6.2 Inches; 336 pages; Fewer than five years after World War II, the United States found itself once again confronted by a war for which it was unprepared. Once again a downsized military establishment rushed to call up, draft, and recruit the needed manpower. And once again when it came up short, the services asked American women to leave their homes, jobs, and families to serve their country.

This book chronicles the crucial work of servicewomen in the Korean War, and other uniformed women who helped support that war and the burgeoning Cold War in places as far flung as the Pacific atoll of Kwajalein, bases in still-occupied post-war Germany and Japan, and lonely, isolated outposts such as Great Falls, Montana. The few short years between 1945 and 1953 saw pivotal changes in women's status in the U.S. Armed Forces. In a series of controversial and sometimes bitter legislative contests, women went from being almost a historical footnote in the immediate postwar period--a source of labor and skills the nation's military took for granted--to winning a permanent place in each branch of the armed services.

Largely based on the rich archives housed at the Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation, this volume records the actions of women who served in the armed forces, as well as those in the Red Cross, the USO, and other nongovernmental organizations that sent women overseas in support of U.S. military personnel. Topics include the efforts of the Department of Defense to increase the number of female recruits for the Korean War and the difficulty of retaining them in an era that valued homemakers and devalued career women; the cost to the military of the female talent drain just when the military needed them most; and a close look at Army, Navy and Air Force nurses, as well as those in the innovative M.A.S.H. units, who all performed magnificently under dangerous and harsh conditions.

The book's conclusion assesses the failure of the military to fully incorporate women during these years as a result of its own paternalistic mindset (shared by society at large) coupled with the failure of wartime recruiting efforts and the low retention rate for servicewomen. The authors argue that the number of servicewomen remained far below authorized levels throughout this period, and the continued small size of the women's components resulted in their inability to accomplish their mission. According to the authors, this hurt the credibility of the women's services and haunted them for years, reinforcing the rock-solid belief of many that the military was for men, and women did not belong there.

4194 Wollaston, William The Religion of Nature Delineated
London B. Lintot, W.and J. Innys, J.Osborn, T Longman, J.Batley 1726 Second Edition; Third Printing Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
Original leather on board binding is very worn and hinges cracking, but not seperated. Pages are clean and bright with very little browning due to age. Palmer was the printer and book sold by B. Lintott, W. and J. Innys, J. Osborn, J Batley, and T. Longman. There is a book plate inside front cover that says Chappel Woodhouse and there is an inscription in front from former owner. Woodhouse was Rev. John-Chappel Woodhouse, educated at Christ Church and he wrote and published Annotations on the Apocalypse in 1805. Wollaston (1660-1724) devoted his life to writing treatises on religious questions. The Religion of Nature Delineated upholds the intellectual theory of morality of which Samuel Clarke, Newtons disciple was the chief proponent. It has been documented that Benjamin Franklin set this work up for printing. It is the third edition of Wollaston's work. The first edition of 1722 was small, filled with uncorrected errors and sold without the authors knowledge or consent. In 1724 the printer Palmer reprinted the work with Wollastons corrections. It is said in his Auto-biography Franklin reports that he composed the second edition Lowndes has this from Franklin ? Franklin disagreed with Wollaston and wrote in response to Wollaston A Dissertation on Liberty and Necessity, Pleasure and Pain, which appeared in London in 1725, Scarce if not rare with this ownership history. ; 0 pages; Signed by Notable Personage, Unrelated
