Title / Description
Lima, the History by Eric Hirsimaki Published by Hundman Publishing, 1986. Hard cover with dust jacket. Second Edition. 8.5 x 11 in. Description: Leather-like binding with silver title on spine. Given its humble beginnings as the small-town machine shop putting together a weird geared curiosity for a Michigan lumberman named Ephraim Shay, Lima's record of steam success is unprecedented. From the strange-looking but incredibly useful Shays to the "Cadillacs" of steam locomotives, the Lima Locomotive Works produced the third largest number of steam locomotives in the United States (after Baldwin and Alco). Its diesel production was something else, as the reader will discover in this book. This book is the ultimate in the history of Lima; none ever needs to be written again. Roster of Locomotives Built by Lima pp. 322-352. Text, b&w photographs and illustrations. 352 ppg.

Measures about 8 by 5.5 inches. Complete and intact. Very Good condition.

It is a catalogue of locomotives manufactured by the Baldwin Company, loaded with full page photos of each engine. Includes six engine photos from the 1872 edition that were absent in the 1876 catalog. Measures about 8 by 5.5 inches. Nice Fine (appears near New). 64 ppg. Narrow Gauge Locomotives, issued by the Baldwin Locomotive Works, Burnham, Parry and Williams & Co., Philadelphia, Pa. Publisher: University of Oklahoma Press. Hardbound. Description: First published in 1877 under the title: "Dimensions, weights, and tractive power of narrow-gauge locomotives, manufactured by the Baldwin Locomotive Works". This is a 1976 REPRINT of the 1877 issue. It is a catalogue of locomotives manufactured by the Baldwin Company, loaded with full page photos of each engine. Measures about 8 by 5.5 inches. 54 ppg.

From Small Town to Downtown / History of the Jewett Car Company 1893-1919 by Lawrence A. Brough & James H. Graebner Publisher: Indiana University Press 2004 Description: The Jewett Car Company was born in the heyday of the electric railway boom in the 1890s. The company gained an excellent reputation for its elegant, well-built wooden cars for street railway companies, interurban lines, and rapid transit service. Many Jewett cars found their way to Indiana and many of the interurban lines employed the graceful, archwindowed wood interurban that Jewett was famous for. Automobile competition and the problems of competing with much larger car builders, such as J.G. Brill and the St. Louis Car Company, signaled the beginning of the end. The company was offered the opportunity to produce munitions for World War I, but refused. The reason: the major source of finance for Jewett was a German nationalist banker from Wheeling, WV, who refused to have the company do anything to harm Germany. As a direct result, the Jewett Car Company failed. Name inside front cover, otherwise as New 208 ppg. George L Beam and the Denver & Rio Grande - Volume 1 by Jackson C.

Iowa's Last Narrow-gauge Railroad by James Shaffer, John Tigges Description: Arcadia Publishing (SC), 2006. Paperback. When talk began circulating in 1848 about the importance of railroads, the people of Cascade grew anxious. Without direct access to navigable rivers other than the Mississippi over 36 miles away, their community could very well fade from existence. They needed a railroad as soon as possible. The idea raced forward, with the backing of the Chicago, Clinton, Dubuque and Minnesota Railroad Company, which ran along the western bank of the Mississippi River and passed through Bellevue. Their hopes and dreams became reality in a three-foot-gauge line 31 years later, in 1879. In 1880, the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway purchased the River Road, which included the narrow-gauge branch line to Cascade. 128 ppg.

Minnesota Logging Railroads: A Pictorial History of the Era When White Pine and the Logging Railroad Reigned Supreme by Frank A. King Published by Golden West Books, San Marino, California, 1981. First Edition. Description: During the heyday of lumberjacks and sawmills, railroads such as the Duluth and Northern Minnesota enabled logging companies to break away from floating logs downriver, with its shortfalls (logjams and winter freezes). Frank King traces this rich history from its beginnings in 1886 to the railroads' disappearance around 1937 when the last of the giant sawmills closed down. King profiles every logging railroad in Minnesota and examines all aspects of their operations, including locomotives such as the geared Shays and Heislers, McGiffert log loaders, Russell log cars, dump trestles, hot ponds, logging camp life, railroad finances, and the impact on communities as timber supplies ran out and lumbering and sawmill operations shut down, causing thousands to lose their jobs. Heavily illustrated throughout, Minnesota Logging Railroads contains maps, photographs, postcards, engineering drawings, and railroad memorabilia such as timetables, passes, fare receipts, and freight tariffs. The appendixes comprehensively list the state's logging railroads, locomotive rosters, and railroad and lumber company names.. Book is VG in Good dust jacket with large chip in back. 206 ppg.

Nothing Like it In The World - The Men Who Built The Transcontinental Railroad 18631869 by Stephen E. Ambrose Published by Simon & Schuster Ltd. Hard Cover. First Edition Description: SIGNED BY STEPHEN E. AMBROSE. This is the story of the men who built the transcontinental railroad, those who risked their businesses and money, the engineers and surveyors who risked, and often lost, their lives, and the men who did the dangerous and backbreaking work on the tracks that joined the continent as a nation. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. AUTHOR NOTES: Ambrose published his first book, the biography of General Henry Halleck, in 1962. Fewer than 1, 000 copies were printed, however the book found its way into the hands of Dwight Eisenhower. The former president so enjoyed the book that he phoned Ambrose to tell him. That call led to Ambrose becoming Ike's official biographer, as well as the editor of his papers (15 volumes). Much like Eisenhower, Professor Ambrose has embraced both military and political worlds in his writing career. His titles include: Band of Brothers, Custer & Crazy Horse, Lewis & Clark, The Victors, Americans at War, Rise to Globalism, Undaunted Courage, The Wild Blue, The Good Fight, Ike's Spys, Eisenhower, Nixon - Triumph of a Politician, History of West Point, and Citizen Soldiers. 431 ppg.

Title / Description
Rio Grande In Color - Volume I - Colorado by Rodd R. Grenard Published by Morning Sun Books, Scotch Plains, NJ 1998 Hard bound Description: This is the story of 25 epochal years in the corporate and operational life of an American railroad, during which it evolved from a ward of the courts into a railroad second to none in financial profitability, in its physical property, and in the application of technology to solve operating problems. For during this quarter century it evolved, using its own resources, from a regional carrier into a Bridge Line whose specialties included intermodal traffic, unit coal trains, and short, fast manifest freights covering the length of its mainline. That this was carried on in the mountains and deserts of Colorado and Utah, against spectacular scenery and in the face of hostile nature, a profile like nearly nothing else in mainline railroading, and intense competition seems now a miraculous feat. Included are the near-demise of passenger service, the last years of standard gauge steam, first and second generation diesels and such colloquialisms as 'Perlman Mallets', K-Ms, MFT, PMX, 'Ute', SPF and ACD. New. 128 ppg. Rio Grande In Color - Volume II - Utah by Rodd R. Grenard Published by Morning Sun Books, Scotch Plains, NJ 1998 Hard bound Description: illus w/ color photos and maps.

West Virginia Narrow Gauge - Mann's Creek Railway by Ron Lane and Ted Schnepf Published by TLC Publishing 1999 First Edition Description: As a tiny narrow-gauge railroad with a mere 40 miles of track, Mann's Creek gained a considerable reputation in the 1950s for its adherence to steam power. With a connection to the Chesapeake & Ohio's mainline deep in the West Virginia mountains, Mann's Creek operated from 1873 to 1956, and carried large amounts of coal and timber for shipment over the C&O. Today, Mann's Creek appeals to modern enthusiasts for several reasons: it was a narrow gauge line, its tiny Shay locomotives hauled both coal and timber in a remote and mountainous region, and shared dual-gauge tracks with some of the largest locomotives ever built. The authors spent more than 30 years researching Mann's Creek, coming up with one of the most cogently written and detailed studies ever published on the life, work, and culture of a mountain railroad. Ideal for narrowgauge modelers, rail fans, and historians alike. Illustrations include more than 300 rare photographs, maps, and detailed drawings of cars and structures.

Historic & Antiquarian Books
Several years ago, we had the honor of briefly owning a segment of the D.O. Selznick International Pictures Research Library. We are again privileged to offer for sale several of these priceless treasures on behalf of their current owners. These important books were used as research materials for the classic film Gone With The Wind - a film which earned David O. Selznick the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1940. Apparently, word of these important books reached entertainer Michael Jackson last summer. Michael expressed a very strong desire to purchase five of these books for his personal GWTW collection. (The centerpiece of Michael's collection is Selznick's Best Picture Oscar, for which the King of Pop had paid more than $1.5 million.) We tendered his generous offer to the current owner and it was immediately accepted. Unfortunately, Michael passed away before we received payment. However, it did establish a meaningful value for these important examples from the Selznick Library, placing them well beyond the reach of all but a handful of the most ardent of GWTW collectors. It is for this reason that we prefer not to publish specific asking prices. Only serious GWTW collectors need ask. We trust that you will honor our client's wishes. Thank you.

History of Homes and Gardens of Tennessee by Roberta Seawell Brandau Description: This is a 1936 FIRST EDITION, limited to 1500 copies, compiled by the Garden Study Club of Nashville with Mrs. John Trotwood Moore, collaborating. Excerpt from foreword, 'It was the realization of the immediate importance of the project which prompted the Garden Study Club of Nashville to undertake the task of collecting and preserving the records of the early gardens of Tennessee. As the research progressed it was realized that the history of Tennessee gardens was so closely interwoven with the history of Tennessee homes that to separate them was to lose something very precious, and so the original plan was expanded to include both. The making of this volume -- begun as a patriotic service -- will have been justified if it serves in a small way to stimulated an interest in the new, and to rekindle an appreciation of the old, which will lead to the preservation and restoration of the homes and gardens of Tennessee.' This extremely rare and essential work is in Good condition. It is in the original green cloth with guilt lettering on the spine and cover. The spine is slightly softened on the edges. The corners and edges likewise show some shelf wear. There is some slight foxing to some of the endpapers as well as some age discoloration. Light soiling on the edges. There are a couple of tiny red chalk marks on the cover. The hinge appears to slightly loose at the top front. All pages are clean, intact, and unmarked, aside from the following. Part of an acquisition of an estate that held portions of the David O. Selznick Research Department (discretely rubber stamped as such) used in the production of the Oscar-winning classic film "Gone With The Wind".

Cassell Petter & Gilpin was a publisher that existed only between 1858 and 1878. The company changed its name in 1878 to Cassell, Petter, Gilpin & Company.

Title / Description
System of Surgery: Pathological, Diagnostic, Therapeutic, and Operative by Samuel D Gross Published by Henry C Lea's Son & Company, Philadelphia, PA 1882 Sixth Edition revised and improved. Nearly 1600 illustrations! From the Preface of First Volume: "The object of this work, as set forth in the first edition, issued in 1859, is to furnish a systematic and comprehensive treatise on the art and science of surgery, considered in the broadest sense; one that shall serve the practitioner as a faithful and available guide in his daily routine of duty. My aim has been to embrace the whole domain of surgery, and to allot to every subject its legitimate claim to notice in the great family of external diseases and accidents. If a larger space than is customary has been devoted to the consideration of inflammation and its effects, or the great principles of surgery, it is because of my conviction, founded upon long and close observation, that there are no subjects so little understood by the general practitioner. Special attention has also been bestowed upon the discrimination of diseases; and an elaborate chapter on general diagnosis has been introduced. The Work, although presented, as its title indicates, as a formal and systematic treatise, is founded upon the courses of lectures which it devolved upon me to deliver during the last forty two years; first in the University of Louisville, for a long time the most flourishing medical school in the Southwest, and during the last twenty six years in the Jefferson Medical College, from which, in 1828, I received my degree." Two large, thick, and very heavy Quarto - sized hardcover books. No missing pages, no writing or markings in the text, no ownership markings, small "Saunders Medical Books, Phila". label inside front cover. Original full calf leather bindings, with gilt title impressions on spine. Some scratches on the back cover of Vol. II. No dust jackets. Vol I - 1194 ppg and Vol II - 1174 ppg. Each volume approx. 10.75" tall x 7.25" deep x 2.75" thick. Very Good A solid and stunningly attractive pair of rare and important medical books worth more than our modest asking price. The Confederate Soldier in the Civil War (1959 reprint of the classic 1897 Prentiss Press book) Edited by Ben LaBree with Eulogy by Fithugh Lee Published by Pageant Books / Rae Publishing, Paterson, NJ 1959 Hard bound elephant folio Description: The title page continues ... "The Campaigns, Battles, Seiges, Charges, and Skirmishes Described by Robert E. Lee, Albert S Johnston, Jos. Johnston, Pierre GT Beauregard, Braxton Bragg, E Kirby Smith, John B Hood, James Longstreet, Thomas J Jackson, A P Hill, Leonidas Polk, D H Hill, William J Hardee, Richard Ewell, J E B Stuart, and other military leaders. The Foundation and Formation of the Confederacy Described by Jefferson Davis, Alexander H Stevens, Judah P Benjamin, and others. The Confederate States Navy described by Franklin Buchanan, Raphael Semmes, and other naval leaders." This book restates the Southern odyssey in the clear words of its leading contemporaries. Accompanying the personal narratives is a mass of information sufficient to satisfy even the most critical. Essentially, it is the answer to "Harper's Pictorial History of the Great Rebellion" and "Leslie's Our Soldier in the Civil War". Years of exhaustive research went into this monumental 19th Century account honoring the Confederacy. Editor Ben La Bree based his work on official records on file with the War Department. This is a particularly well done resource which backs the claims of the stanchest defenders of the Confederacy's right to secession. Cloth covered boards are VG and the binding is tight. Content is Fine. Since common Fairfax reprints go for over $300 and decent Prentiss Press originals bring over $600, this scarce 50-year old reprint a steal. Approx. 11" x 16" elephant folio. 480 ppg. Nice VG Oversized books require additional postage.

The Dispensatory of the United States of America by George B. Wood and Franklin Bache Published by J B Lippincott and Co., Philadelphia, PA 1882. 14th Edition Leather bound. Description: "Materia Medica". The comprehensive expansion of the Pharmacopeia of the United States. This is a great addition to any pharmaceutical or medical collection for those on a tight budget. The binding is cracked at first page, a few loose pages in the back, some deep scuffs to covers, and the original calf is deteriorating at the spine (with title segment missing). 1879 ppg. plus Prefaces to the First, 12th, 13th, and 14th editions bound in. Approximate size: 10" x 7" x 3.75" thick! Heavy book requires additional shipping. AG The Approved Holy Catholic Bible--with elegant steel plates and other appropriate engravings (by Doré) Published by W L Richardson & Co. Boston, MA (circa 1870) Illustrated by Gustave Doré. Leather bound First Edition thus. Description: The title continues "The Entire Canonical Scriptures according to the decree of the Council of Trent, translated from the Latin Vulgate...with Annotations by the Rev. Dr. Challoner, etc." Oversized folio (approx. 9-3/4" x 12-1/2" x 3-1/2" thick)--leather bound. Over 1200 pages long and very rare! A deeply sculptured leather design with highly detailed raised cross toward center and gold pictorials around the borders. Very ornate gold binding, metal clasps to either side (hasps removed), gilt edges, gilt to inner cover edges, with a two page frontispiece to both old and new testaments, spectacular full color Introduction and New Testament title page. This bible also features a color Family Registry with some genealogy of the Morley Family. Many superb full page plates by the famed 19th century artist/engraver Paul Gustave Doré. Also featured are two Full Color Maps. Similar bibles often fetch hundreds more at public auction. A rare and very impressive bible indeed, grading about VG with near Fine content. 1220 ppg. The Holy Bible … with Illustrations by Gustave Doré published by Cassell, Petter and Galpin circa 1867-1868 First Edition Morocco leather bound folio in Two Volumes Description: This two-volume bible, both Old and New Testaments, displays the pinnacle of Gustave Dore's art. It is profusely illustrated with more than 220 full page engraved plates, and bound in hand-tooled morocco leather with gilt trim. The content grades Fine with VG bindings that exhibit wear at their extremities which does not detract from the overall beauty of this magnificent tribute to God's word and His creation. This is a beautiful compendium of the very best of Gustave Doré's artistic renderings which showcases his copious illustrative talents. Doré was born in Strassburg in 1832 and moved to Paris in 1848, where his facility as a draughtsman was proclaimed as "extraordinary‖. Doré was a very prolific worker whose subjects were most often religious or historical in nature. NOTE: Cassell, Petter & Galpin announced the purchase of the English copyright to Doré's Holy Bible in 1865 with the original parts in English to be published beginning in January 1866. Although dates are never found in these rare sets, it is most likely that this particular set was printed between 1867 and 1868. Cassell Petter & Gilpin was a publisher that existed only between 1858 and 1878, after which time they were known as Cassell Petter Gilpin & Company. Furthermore, publisher's advertisements from ~1868 clearly indicate that the contemporary price of the two volume Dore Bible was many times the price of other morocco bound titles illustrated by Doré, such as Dante's Inferno or Don Quixote. This particular example is exceedingly rare in its early printing and its condition. VG The Great Teachings of Masonry by H.L.

Dred: A Tale of the Great Dismal Swamp by Harriet Beecher Stowe Published by Phillips, Sampson & Company, Boston, MA 1856 First Edition First State Hard bound in two volumes. Description: "Dred" is Stowe's sequel to Uncle Tom's Cabin (UTC) and her second impactful anti-slavery novel. Inspired in part by Nat Turner's slave rebellion of 1831, "Dred" sold over 100,000 copies in less than a month. This was a rate far greater than that of her first effort. "UTC" drew criticism from both abolitionists and black authors for the passive martyrdom of Uncle Tom and the endorsement of colonization as the ultimate solution to slavery. In stark contrast, "Dred" introduces a revolutionary character who is presented as an heir to the American Revolution rather than a problem to be expatriated. Previous owner's signatures with date of Sept. 26 1856. Black/Brown cloth boards with blind-stamped design. Spines worn at ends. Some loosening of bindings. Corners bumped. Generally very clean pages with only a few scattered imperfections. Both volumes match and exhibit first state properties called for by Blanck in BAL 19389. (Volume One, page 88, the ascender of the "d" in "dictatorial" is almost directly below the vertical stroke in the "r" in the line above. Volume Two, page 370. ninth line up reads "...the Dickinsons are fewer, and have ...") also ref. Wright II 2391. Solid VG with some aspirations of being a Fine. Vol I - 329 ppg + 6 pages of ads..

Half red morocco leather with fancy blue grosgrain cloth imprinted in gold. Gilt page edges. Corners worn, spine cracked, but the content is Very Good or better with minor foxing confined to plate protector tissues. Unpaginated. VERY RARE! Copies that are missing plates generally sell for $500 to $800, making this unmolested copy an exceptional buy for the serious Punch fancier! Keep the book as it is, or restore it into a $2000+ historical (or hysterical) treasure. Frank Leslie's Chatterbox published by Frank Leslie, New York 1884 Hard bound with illustrated cover First edition Scarce early edition of this fascinating children's publication. Some minor damp staining and minor paper loss to frontispiece. Profusely illustrated collection of stories, accompanied by several interesting advertisements of the day. 314 ppg.

The title-page vignette and some other illustrations are by Cruikshank. Approx. 4.5" x 5.5" This rare book was one that Charles Dickens had planned to write, although it was truly penned by George Mogridge (1787-1954), also known as Peter Parley or Old Humphrey. This explains why it is so often misattributed as a work by Dickens. Mogridge wrote nearly two hundred tales and religious books for children.

Sixteen full-color plates are embellished with metallic green ink. Bound in light green cloth with color plate on front cover and with rabbit on spine in silver and black. The book appears to have been stored backward in a bookshelf, since the spine has a light transfer stain. Quite rare, and priced $1100 less than a comparable volume with the (exceedingly rare) dust jacket. Modern reprints command as much as $125, so this genuine rarity is an absolute gift at this price. 295 ppg. Very Good, with internal pages grading VG+.

Quick Reference Guide to Grading Books: The grading of books is a very imprecise science. This can be attributed to the limited number of grades and the subjective and arbitrary standards applied. We would like to see a system that has a much broader scale with strict definitions of each. A scale such as that adopted by professional numismatists (coin dealers / collectors), where grading runs a 70-point gambit, ten of which (MS-60 to MS-70) define uncirculated coins alone! Despite the limited and archaic grading system used by booksellers, abuses are still a problem and disputes will continue to be a problem until the system is changed. Nonetheless, within the general descriptions below there is legitimate latitude for individual differences in grading standards. Very Fine (VF) - Very Fine is the highest possible grade to be given to precious few books. Much like a Mint State 70 (MS-70) uncirculated coin, it indicates a condition that is perfect in every respect, admitting to no flaws whatsoever. Books which exhibit a single blemish can never be graded as "VF"! VF examples are exceedingly rare in even the most common of books. New (New) - Many booksellers use the terms ―Mint‖ or ―New‖ interchangeably with ―Very Fine‖. They are NOT the same! However, there is nothing improper in the use of "New" and "Mint". These grades may include undisclosed minor flaws to which all new books may be subject. All New books are inherently inferior to a Very Fine specimen for this reason. Fine (F) - A copy that is without significant disclosed or undisclosed flaws, but lacks the pristine freshness of a New book. Most antiquarian booksellers never award a grade higher than Fine. This is quite proper. Unfortunately, this leaves only four paltry grades with which to work. A book that is graded ―Fine‖ has had excellent and loving care for its entire life, and may appear ―new-ish‖. On closer inspection, however, flaws or blemishes in either the book or its dust jacket must be disclosed in its description. Amazon's equivalent grade is "Used - Like New". Very Good (VG) - This is the most common grade given to a collectable book. It means exactly what it says, it is ―Very Good‖, but is no longer fresh. The book has been handled and shows visible signs of wear, although it is still sound and appealing to the collector. Most flaws such as ownership marks, bookplates, remainder marks, bumped corners, price clipping, chips, and tears must be disclosed in the description of a Very Good book. Good (G) – We contend that ―Good" seldom is! Good is essentially the lowest collectible grade, save for rare antiquarian books. The book has been used and abused, but remains whole. There may be one major flaw, such as light damp staining or a cracked hinge, that keeps it from a higher grade. Otherwise, a couple of minor problems, each of which are fully described, should be disclosed in the book’s description. Furthermore, a dust jacket may have lost some design elements, but it must never be partial or fragmentary. Fair (Fr) - Fair is the term used for a rare book hovering at the doorstep of collectability, sometimes referred to as "acceptable". For purposes of readability, it is a very weak ―good‖, and will exhibit more than one major flaw or an accumulation of minor problems. The dust jacket, if there was one, may be missing or in tatters, although this really must be disclosed.

Title / Description
OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS: SIGNED BY AUTHOR – This will elevate the value, often significantly, based upon the relative rarity of the signature. When personalized to a particular individual it may vary even more. If the individual happens to be a recognizable personality, the value may escalate further. Conversely, when directed to a ―Bob‖ or ―Mary‖, it becomes less important to collectors named Joe or Jane. SERIALIZED – Whenever a book is produced in a limited edition bearing serial numbers, the value is generally elevated over an unnumbered edition. This will vary according to the relative rarity of the limited edition. FIRST EDITION – This is the generally the preferred edition of many collectors. An exception may be whenever the second printing corrects significant omissions or inaccuracies that appeared in the first printing. PRICE CLIPPING (PC) - This indicates that the price (most often located at the top front inside flap of the dust jacket) has been cut off. Some book publishers will resort to drawing a mark across the edge of some books to indicate their remainders (sold at deep discounts). Either is an important condition to disclose, especially when determining the value of a First Edition. Many collectors place little importance on a price clipped book. However, booksellers vary enormously in adjusting for price clipping. In fact, some may not even bother to disclose PCs in their dust jacket descriptions. In our estimation, a price clipped remainder should be marked down by 20% to 25% -- perhaps the same as if it had no dust jacket at all. DAMP STAINING – This is the most important major flaw in grading a book’s condition. Moisture is deadly to paper! Evidence that a book has been exposed to water will significantly diminish the book’s value and must be disclosed in the description. In many cases, however, it will simply leave a small stain that does not affect the readability of the text. SUNNING – This is the second most important major flaw in grading a book’s condition. It is caused by sunlight, which causes the dust jacket or book binding to fade or discolor, most often limited to the spine. This should be disclosed in the description, even though it does not impact readability. FOXING – Foxing is caused by paper acidification. This is the light brown spotting that is frequently seen in 19th century books and some early 20th century books. It must be disclosed, but does not significantly impact value unless the foxing is excessive. TIGHT – The binding is tight, the hinges are tight, and there are no loose pages or separation of pages from the spine. LAID-IN – This describes ancillary documentation or ephemera that is lying loose in the front or back of the book. It may be a letter, a note, printed literature, a photograph, autograph, etc. TIPPED-IN – This describes ancillary documentation or ephemera that has been pasted or glued into the book, such as illustrated plates or maps. COCKED – A book whose spine and boards are no longer in alignment. This condition is most often caused by a book being placed in a bookshelf at an extreme angle to the horizontal, or by laying the book horizontally with other books piled atop. Some books are more prone to cocking than others because they were produced with weak hinges. Cassell and Heinemann books from the 1920s to 1940s are among those prone to this problem -- common to their Shute's and Rand's. SPRUNG – This refers to a book that is bowed. This may be the result of a book being exposed to sudden temperature or humidity extremes. Again, some books are more prone to this than others. OFFSETTING – This refers to the condition of discoloration often caused by lithographs or newspaper clippings laid into a book. This should be disclosed in the book’s description. EX-LIBRIS – This is a former library copy, and may be considered uncollectible whenever the library markings are distracting or pervasive. Often this means that a pocket has been glued inside the cover. Relative scarcity or rarity will be the final determining factor as to how much or how little this will alter the book’s valuation.

STATES or ISSUES - There are many instances where a book has more than one variation of the ―First Edition‖. The Ayn Rand Collection is a good example. The Fountainhead has two states or issues of the first edition, both of which are identified by the publisher on the copyright page as "First Edition". The red cloth copy with Bobbs-Merrill's Spring List of books on the dust jacket is the first state. The green cloth with Any Rand's picture and reviews on the back is the second state. Both proclaim "First Edition" on the copyright page, although later printings may be similar in appearance. Our fascination with Harriet Beecher Stowe is another good example. NOTE: Due to the dreadful paucity of grades, many booksellers resort to using steps between grades to better describe a book's condition. These will be expressed as: ―near fine,‖ "about fine", ―very good plus‖, ―very good minus‖, "about good", etc. Books and dust jackets are generally graded separately, so as not to unnecessarily devalue a ―new‖ book that has been mishanded prior to sale. This is a widely accepted practice, and we use this method at OpenBook to better define the ―in between‖ grades, particularly scarcer and rare editions.
