Catch Me If You Can, Abagnale, Frank W., Jr. (with Stan Redding)
1 Abagnale, Frank W., Jr. (with Stan Redding) Catch Me If You Can
New York, New York, U.S.A. Grosset & Dunlap 0448165384 / 9780448165387 First Edition, First Printing Cloth 
[1980]. Very Good in a Very Good dustjacket. Bound in full blue cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. 253pps. Stated First Printing. There is mild bumping to the spine-ends and a tidy gift inscription is neatly penned near the top of the ffep. Otherwise clean, bright, square and soundly bound. The price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, is lightly rubbed with crinkling at the spine-ends, a 1/2" closed tear at the top of the front panel, and a crease in the front flap. A nice, presentable copy -- scarce in the first printing. Made into a major motion picture in 2002 by Steven Spielberg, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks. ".Frank W. Abagnale, alias Frank Williams, Robert Conrad, Frank Adams, and Robert Monjo, was one of the most daring con men, forgers, imposters, and escape artists in history. In his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilot's uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks, all before he was twenty-one. Known by the police of twenty-six foreign countries and all fifty states as 'The Skywayman,' Abagnale lived a sumptuous life on the lam -- until the law caught up with him. Now recognized as the nation's leading authority on financial foul play, Abagnale is a charming rogue whose hilarious, stranger-than-fiction international escapades, and ingenious escapes -- including one from an airplane -- make 'Catch Me If You Can' an irresistible tale of deceit."

2 Athearn, Robert G. (edited by) Soldier in the West : The Civil War Letters of Alfred Lacey Hough
Philadelphia, PA University of Pennsylvania Press 1957 First Edition Cloth 
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Bound in full black cloth. The spine is stamped in silver. Octavo. 250pps. The heel of the spine is lightly bumped and there is a small speck atop the textblock. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The textblock is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, is faintly sunned, lightly soiled, and has a small, closed tear atop the front panel; the original price (5.00) is intact. With an Introduction by John Newbold Hough. ".In 1861, Alfred Lacey Hough, a thirty-five-year-old commission merchant, left his wife, his two sons, and a comfortable home in Philadelphia to enlist as a sergeant in the Pennsylvania Volunteers. In his letters to his wife, Hough -- who achieved the rank of captain and then brevet lieutenant colonel -- revealed his complete devotion to Northern war aims, for he was an ardent champion of the Union cause. Each letter to his 'Dearest Mary' is the expression of a conscientious soldier who took great care to preserve for his descendents all of his experiences and observations during four crucial years of his life. Written by an educated, literate soldier, these letters are at once a valuable primary source for the historian and an exciting recreation of the events and moods of war. Hough served in the Western theater of operations, and his accounts of such battles as Corinth and Chickamauga, of the incidents along the route of Sherman's march on Atlanta, contain all the color and impact of eyewitness description."

Recollections of Alexander H. Stephens (His Diary When Kept A Prisoner At Fort Warren, Boston Harbour, 1865), Avary, Myrta Lockett (Edited, with a Biographical Study by)
3 Avary, Myrta Lockett (Edited, with a Biographical Study by) Recollections of Alexander H. Stephens (His Diary When Kept A Prisoner At Fort Warren, Boston Harbour, 1865)
New York Doubleday Page & Co. 1910 First Edition Cloth 
Very Good in full red cloth. Both the spine and the front board are gilt-stamped (all of which is still brilliant). 572pps., with tissue-guarded frontispiece of the subject. No dustjacket. Touches of wear to the tips and the spine-ends; the head of the spine does have a 1/4" tear in the cloth. Light foxing around the area of the endpapers; all other pages are, however, quite clean and bright. The binding is square and tight. To give the provenance of this book: it is from the library of the esteemed William Emerson Ambler. His bookplate is affixed to the front pastedown and his synopsis of the volume is attached to the ffep. Quite an interesting and scarce volume, in nice condition. This book is part of a renowned collection put together by Judge William Emerson Ambler of Cleveland, Ohio in the early part of the last century, adding to the collection his father, Chester Ambler had begun in the mid 1800ís. Ambler died in 1925 and these wonderful items have been kept by his family all this time. As a lawyer Judge Ambler's work was done chiefly in the State of Michigan, where he became prominent in public affairs, serving as state senator and as judge of probate. He moved to Cleveland in 1891 and became one of the leading real estate men. He was born in Medina, Ohio, December 18, 1845, as son of Chester C. and Margaret (Elgin) Ambler. In 1859 the family moved to Hillsdale, Michigan. He attended Hillsdale College, graduated Bachelor of Science from Albion College in 1865, and pursued his law studies in the Albany Law School at New York, where he was a classmate of President William McKinley. Pentwater, Michigan was his home for over twenty years ( the family home is now a bed and breakfast ); his work and attainments gained him a high estimation in the public. He was elected a member of the State Senate in 1878 and again in 1880. Judge Ambler's hobby was the collecting of autographs and autographic letters and manuscripts; he had one of the largest collections of the kind in the country.

4 Benson, Jackson J. Looking for Steinbeck's Ghost
Norman, OK, U.S.A. University of Oklahoma Press 1988 0-8061-2155-6 / 9780806121550 First Edition 
Fine in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Fully-bound in gray cloth. The spine is stamped in red. 231pp. There is a mild bump to the head of the spine, otherwise: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has light touches of rubbing -- particularly along the spine. There is, also, a 3/8" closed tear at the top of the rear panel.

"...In 1968, Jackson J. Benson, then a naive young literature professor, set out to write a critical appraisal of John Steinbeck, a writer who Benson felt was greatly undervalued by the scholarly establishment. To Benson's amazement, he shortly found his project turning into an authorized biography. 'Looking for Steinbeck's Ghost' is Benson's engaging account of his experiences over the fifteen years he devoted to writing that biography. On one level, the book is a rich collection of anecdotes, character sketches, and memories of Steinbeck and the people with whom he shared his life -- wives and children, siblings, friends. On another level, 'Looking for Steinbeck's Ghost' is a fascinating account of the biographer's task, with all its triumphs large and small and its numerous pitfalls and frustrations. We follow Benson as he struggles to master the skills of the biographer to find out just who John Steinbeck was..."

A very nice, collectible copy: scarce signed.

"...When the 20th century lists its achievers, the name of Sir Edmund Hillary will be among them, ranked with the greatest adventurers of this and many other centuries.
Like astronauts who have looked back on their world from space, or walked the surface of the moon, Ed Hillary, after levering himself to the top of the world's highest mountain, was all at once the same and yet never the same again.
It was as if he had glimpsed more than simply the vast snow profiles of the Himalayas but had seen beyond to man's real place on the planet as caretaker in trust.
Through his unfailing support and nurturing of the Sherpa population, building schools and hospitals, repaying not only his own debt but also those of other humans to other communities, he set an example of caring to the world.
Hillary's efforts are more than simply for mankind. Through his worldwide travels in support of environmental causes, he has come to epitomise the modern adventurer who not only travels but defends, who not only saw for himself but who brough the message home to hundreds of millions more.
Forty years after those moments shared by a shy Sherpa and a young beekeeper handpicked by fate to be the trailblazers, the time is right to celebrate a great life. This book is that celebration..."

9 Cobb, Irvin S. Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!
New York Bobbs-Merrill 1941 First Edition 
Very Good in a Very Good dustjacket. Bound in full green cloth. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in red. Octavo. 61pps., with a dozen line drawings. Stated First Edition.

"...Appreciative reviewers and delighted readers have selected a particular chapter in Irvin S. Cobb's popular autobiography, 'Exit Laughing,' as their favorite -- the one called 'Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory.'
It is a chapter made up of tales and anecdotes about his loyal, life-long friends among the Negroes of Paducah. He knows well, he reveals supremely well, their emotional hearts, their love of florid language, their unfailing flair for the dramatic. He pays here his gay and touching tribute to a race.
The chapter leads up to something stunning -- the report of a post-war mass meeting where the Negroes of Paducah gathered to honor one of their own who had gained glory on the fields of France and Mr. Cobb was the only white speaker.
That story was wellnigh everything -- humor and pathos and drama, tense action, suspense and climax, all seasoned by the rare Cobbian wit, polished and fashioned by his skill into a classic..."

P.G. Wodehouse: An Illustrated Biography with Complete Bibliography and Collector's Guide, Connolly, Joseph
10 Connolly, Joseph P.G. Wodehouse: An Illustrated Biography with Complete Bibliography and Collector's Guide
London Orbis Publishing 1979 0856132357 / 9780856132353 First Edition, First Printing Hardcover SIGNED by the Author
Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Russet-brown boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Quarto. Beige endpapers. 160pps., with numerous photos. There is mild rubbing to the board-bottoms, otherwise clean, bright, square, and soundly bound. The text is immaculate; no previous ownership markings.

An excellent, collector's-quality copy -- scarce signed by the noted Wodehouse authority.

"Celebrated as the creator of Jeeves and Bertie Wooster, P. G. Wodehouse is undoubtedly one of the best-loved humorists of our times. 'Plum', as he was known to his friends, was an uncomplicated and gentle man, unaffected by his enormous success and wealth. While Ethel, his beloved wife, was an enthusiastic hostess and party-goer, Wodehouse was at his happiest with his typewriter, his pets, on long walks and with his few close friends. Joseph Connolly records his rapid rise as a novelist, and details his career from public school to a well-deserved knighthood the year before he died. The book is illustrated with photographs of Wodehouse, the people he worked with -- such as the composers George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin -- and scenes from his stage works and screen adaptations of his books. There is an indispensible Collector's Guide with the fullest bibliography of Wodehouse's work yet published. It includes descriptions of all known dustjackets of his books."

Eckert tells the life story of this great leader as it has never been told before, with the meticulous accuracy of a scholar and the dramatic flair of a novelist. Mining sources of information never before utilized, Eckert fleshes out the details of a fascinating life and corrects the mistakes of previous accounts."

"James Connolly was one of the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising in Ireland. He was named vice-president of the Provisional Government of the Irish Republic, and was Commandant-General of the insurgent forces fighting in Dublin. After the defeat of the rising by British troops, he was condemned to death by the British and executed by a firing squad, at the age of forty-eight, while strapped to a chair because his wounds did not permit him to stand. In his introduction to this volume, Ellis provides, in addition to a compact biography of Connolly, a description of his work and its place in revolutionary thought."

Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Gray boards quarterbound in red cloth. The spine is stamped in silver. Quarto. Gray endpapers. [xv] + 332pps., plus 8 pages of photos.

Wrapped around the jacket is a band stating 'Personally Autographed Copy.' Generically SIGNED by Joe Franco with 'Thanks' on the half-title page. ".Joe Franco was Jimmy Hoffa's man: loyal, dependable, and willing to bend rules or break heads if it meant advancing the Teamsters union in the name of James R. Hoffa. Franco never questioned an order, he just carried it out. And Jimmy Hoffa never questioned how an order was carried out. In this blistering story of power abused, Richard Hammer documents the rise and fall of Jimmy Hoffa as witnessed by Joe Franco, one of his most trusted lieutenants. There is violence in 'Hoffa's Man'. There is corruption, bribery, extortion, and betrayal. There are names: Bobby Kennedy, Frank Sinatra, and dozens of other political and show business bigwigs enmeshed in this story of greed, immorality, and total defiance of the law. Franco's chilling revelations are at once an appalling comment on the labor movement and a searing indictment of those who found the taste of power even sweeter when laced with blood."
