Point of Honor (Author Signed)  The Continuing Exploits of Lt. Peter Wake United States Navy, Macomber, Robert N
13 Macomber, Robert N Point of Honor (Author Signed) The Continuing Exploits of Lt. Peter Wake United States Navy
Pineapple Press 2003 1561642703 / 9781561642700 First Edition; 1st Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket Signed by Author
Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Author signed front title page. Looks never read! In At the Edge of Honor, the first of a series of novels on the life and times of Peter Wake U.S.N., the former merchant marine officer arrived at the East Gulf Blockading Squadron at Key West in 1863 as a new volunteer officer commanding the tiny armed sloop Rosalie. With her he chased blockade runners on the coasts of Florida and delved into the murky world of Confederate sympathizers in Spanish Havana and the British Bahamas.

Now the year is 1864, and Wake, assisted by his indomitable Irish bosun, Sean Rork, commands a larger ship, the naval schooner St. James. Wake’s remarkable ability to make things happen continues as he searches for army deserters in the Dry Tortugas, discovers an old nemesis during a standoff with the French Navy on the coast of Mexico, starts a drunken tavern riot in Key West, and confronts incompetent Federal army officers during an invasion of upper Florida. It all adds to his growing reputation in the fleet as a man who engenders loyalty among the sailors of the lower deck and grudging respect from his superiors.

Along the way, Wake’s personal life takes a new tack when he risks reputation for love by returning to the arms of his forbidden sweetheart, the daughter of a Confederate zealot. Key West provides a unique setting for them to prove that their love is strong enough to overcome the insanity of the war. And through it all, even when surrounded by the swirling confusion of danger and political intrigue, Peter Wake maintains his dedication to balance on the point of honor.; The Honor Series; 1.23 x 9.74 x 6.32 Inches; 327 pages; Signed by Author

Harrisburg, PA The Old Path 1906 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Black cover with gold lettering. Some light soiling to cover. Contents clean. Has keys to sermon outlines and bible readings. Fully indexed. This is a scarce if not rare and unique work. Amos H. Gottschall (1854-1938) was born in Marietta, Pa. At ten he walked thirty miles to a larger town. He jumped a freight, explored Philadelphia and other cities, spent a night in jail with a Union deserter, all before he was twelve. He worked as a printer for fifty years with over 37 newspapers across the country. His travels mainly on the Trans-Continental RR took him to almost all states and Canada and Mexico. In 1876 at age 22 he established Gottschall Remedies: salves, worm pills, and a pill called Life Essence and especially his "Liniment". He was fascinated with Indians and would sell his "Liniment" (53% alcohol) to the Indians whos camps he often visited. He printed numerous religious and Indian publications such as A Collection of Familiar Hymns (1894), Abolished Rites, or Spiritual, not Ceremonial Worship (1909), The Chippewea's Last Turn (1870) and many others. This Sermon Outlines is very rare as it does not appear in list of his other publications. The author had a colorful and adventursome life. He neither drank or smoked, was married twice, and reportedly shot and killed a man and went to hide in the Souix Indian camps. Rare. ; 112 pages

Tidewater Virginia, Wilstach, Paul
19 Wilstach, Paul Tidewater Virginia
Indianapolis, IN Bobbs-Merrill Company 1929 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
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
