blue ribbon books 1931 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Brown cover with dark brown print. Very clean contents. Easter Island (Rapa Nui: Rapa Nui, Spanish: Isla de Pascua) is a Chilean island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, at the southeasternmost point of the Polynesian Triangle in Oceania. Easter Island is most famous for its nearly 1,000 extant monumental statues, called moai, created by the early Rapa Nui people. It is believed that Easter Island's Polynesian inhabitants arrived on Easter Island sometime near 1200 AD. They created a thriving and industrious culture, as evidenced by the island's numerous enormous stone moai and other artifacts. However, land clearing for cultivation and the introduction of the Polynesian rat led to gradual deforestation. (Wikipedia) ; Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 333 pages

7 Diaz-Plaja, Fernando & John Inderwick Palmer The Spaniard and the Seven Deadly Sins
Charles Scribner's Sons 1967 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Book looks never read. Dust has minor freying to corners. Most people think of the Spaniard as a romantic, flamboyant figure steeped in legend, shouting "Ole!" as the matador faces his moment of truth. However true, this picture has about as much reality as a travel poster. What is today's Spaniard really like - and who understands his astonishing character and temperament. Fernando Diaz-Plaja does, and he has given us a witty, unsparing, eminently quotable portrait of his countrymen.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 223 pages; Using the Seven Deadly Sins as touchstones, the author takes a remarkably candid look as each of these sins as practiced with barely concealed enthusiasm by his Spanish countrymen.

Very rare printing. Tapas Wood (mulbeerry wood) cover with leather backstrap. Very small chip to wood at bottom edge of cover. Hardly noticable. The cover is high gloss with goucho sitting and playing guitar. "Martín Fierro, also known as El Gaucho Martín Fierro, is a 2,316-line epic poem by the Argentine writer José Hernández. The poem was originally published in two parts, El Gaucho Martín Fierro (1872) and La Vuelta de Martín Fierro (1879). The poem supplied a historical link to the gauchos' contribution to the national development of Argentina, for the gaucho had played a major role in Argentina's independence from Spain.The poem, written in a Spanish that evokes rural Argentina, is widely seen as the pinnacle of the genre of "gauchesque" poetry (poems centered on the life of the gaucho, written in a style that evokes the rural Argentine ballads known as payadas) and a touchstone of Argentine national identity. It has appeared in literally hundreds of editions and has been translated into over 70 languages. Beautiful prints inside book. ; Illustrations, Prints; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 311 pages

First Edition. Dust now in mylar cover. The word conquistador comes from Spanish and means "he who conquers." The conquistadors were those men who took up arms to conquer, subjugate and convert native populations in the New World. They had to have some money to purchase the tools of their trade, such as weapons, armor, and horses. Many of them were veteran professional soldiers who had fought for Spain in other wars, such as the reconquest of the Moors (1482-1492) or the "Italian Wars" (1494-1559). Fully indexed, map endpapers. Paul Horgan (August 1, 1903 – March 8, 1995) was an American author of fiction and non-fiction, most of which was set in the Southwestern United States. He was the recipient of two Pulitzer Prizes for History. The New York Times Review of Books said of him, in 1989: "With the exception of Wallace Stegner, no living American has so distinguished himself in both fiction and history."

STORY OF THE WAR OF 1898., King, W. Nephew.
13 King, W. Nephew. STORY OF THE WAR OF 1898.
Peter Fenelon Collier. 1898 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Fair with no dust jacket 
Large book with many black and white plates and color plates of the war. Cover is worn and soiled and some pages have foxing. Scarce first edition. Revolts against Spanish rule had been endemic for decades in Cuba and were closely watched by Americans. There had been war scares before, as in the Virginius Affair in 1873. By 1897–98, American public opinion grew angrier at reports of Spanish atrocities in Cuba. After the mysterious sinking of the American battleship Maine in Havana harbor, political pressures from the Democratic Party pushed the administration of Republican President William McKinley into a war he had wished to avoid.[8] Compromise proved impossible, resulting in the United States sending an ultimatum to Spain demanding it immediately surrender control of Cuba, which the Spanish rejected. First Madrid, then Washington, formally declared war.[9]; Photos and Illustrations; Large Folio

Point of Honor (Author Signed)  The Continuing Exploits of Lt. Peter Wake United States Navy, Macomber, Robert N
17 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
