Collins, Suzanne Three volumes, all first printings, all fine in fine dust jackets, housed in publisher's decorated slipcase. Complete rows of numbers to 1 on each copyright page. Covers of Mockingjay show a few soiling spots.
Bliss, Alexander and Kennedy, John Pendleton First edition, lithographed throughout, engraved vignette title page, original brown cloth with spine redone with original cloth, contains lithographic samples of hand-written manuscripts from virtually all of the major American literary figures of the day, including Abraham Lincoln (with his Gettysburg Address) and Herman Melville and Edgar Allen Poe. The book was published to raise funds for the troops. The authors all wrote and donated the manuscripts for this publication. This version of the Gettysburg differs from prior versions and became the definitive text, used on the Lincoln memorial in Washington D.C. The original now resides in the Lincoln Bedroom in the White House.
Pearce, Donn A very good first edition in a good dust jacket missing a large two inch chip on the top of the back panel of the jacket. But with the original $4.95 price still on the front flap. First edition, with Scribner's "A" code on copyright page. Basis for the classic Paul Newman movie. 'What we have here is a failure to communicate."
