Description:
Cincinnati: E.C. Middleton, 1864. Ulysses S. Grant joined the Union Army when the Civil War broke out in 1861 and rose to prominence after winning several early Union victories on the Western Theater. In 1863 he led the Vicksburg campaign, which gained control of the Mississippi River. President Abraham Lincoln promoted him to lieutenant general after his victory at Chattanooga. William Tecumseh Sherman also served as a general in the Union Army, achieving recognition for his command of military strategy as well as criticism for the harshness of the scorched earth policies that he implemented against the Confederate States. He forged a close partnership with Grant and served with him in 1862 and 1863 in the battles of forts Henry and Donelson, the Battle of Shiloh, the campaigns that led to the fall of the Confederate stronghold of Vicksburg on the Mississippi River, and the Chattanooga campaign, which culminated with the routing of the Confederate armies in the state of Tennessee. In 1864, Sherman… Read more

Philadelphia: Published by F. W. Thomas, 1852. Rare first edition of Goepp's criticism of Kossuth. Octavo, bound in full cloth. Deaccessioned from the Library of Congress with the library's bookplate and stamp to the pastedown. In good condition. Rare. Hungarian politician Lajos Kossuth was widely honoured during his lifetime, including in Great Britain and the United States, as a freedom fighter and bellwether of democracy in Europe. In 1851, he visited America with the intention of appealing to European immigrants in the American heartland with hopes that he could rally them behind the cause of a free and democratic Hungary. During his visit, Kossuth infuriated the abolitionists by refusing to say anything offensive to the pro-slavery establishment, which, however, did not give him much support. Abolitionists said that Kossuth's "hands off" position regarding American slavery was unacceptable. Wm. Lloyd Garrison, on behalf of the American Anti-Slavery Society, published a pamphlet "exposing… Read more

Description:
c. 1920. Early 20th Century French Empire Dore bronze inkwell featuring prominently a large bronze eagle flanked by two bronze inkwells on clawed feet. Sited on a green marble base atop two bronze winged lions and two rear feet. The entire piece measures 15.25 inches long, 7.25 inches deep, and 8.5 inches tall. In fine condition. A handsome library decoration. Inkwells became popular after the Romans invaded Egypt in the first century B.C.E., where the earliest examples were used in a highly restricted quantity by Egyptian scribes. The practice of using inkwells to write fell out of primary use in the mid 20th century when fountain pens were developed and nibs were first mass-produced by Josiah Mason in Birmingham England in 1828.

Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Jose Matos, A man in search of a magician Anthony Burgess." Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of wear to the spine. Jacket design by One Plus One Studio. In Earthly Powers Burgess created his masterpiece. At its center are two twentieth-century men who represent different kinds of power—Kenneth Toomey, a past-his-prime author of mediocre fiction, a man who has outlived his contemporaries to survive into, bitter, luxurious old age, living in self-exile on Malta; and Don Carlo Campanati, a man of God, eventually of church revolution and a candidate for sainthood beloved Pope, who rises through the Vatican as a shrewd manipulator to become the architect. Through the lives of these two modern men Burgess explores the very… Read more

Description:
New York: Doubleday, 1997. First edition of this autobiography by the first Arab writer to be awarded the Nobel Prize in literature. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by both Nobel Laureates Naguib Mahfouz and Nadine Gordimer, who contributed the foreword to this volume. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Both signatures were obtained in person. Naguib Mahfouz was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1988 for his status as one of the first contemporary writers of Arabic literature to explore themes of existentialism (Gordon, 2007). He published 34 novels, 350 short stories, dozens of movie scripts, and five plays over a 70-year career. Many of his works have been made into Egyptian and foreign films. Mahfouz's work describes the development of his country, Egypt, in the 20th-century but in a manner that combine the literary techniques of Eastern and Western literature, authors such as Marcel Proust and Franz Kafka. His stories are set in the densely populated urban areas of Cairo, and his… Read more

Description:
New York: McGraw-Hill Book Company, 1948. First edition of this landmark work in modern economics having sold 4 million copies in 40 languages. Octavo, original cloth. With a rare signed note from Samuelson laid in. The response is from a letter from a boy scout dated March 16, 1971. Samuelson's response is "The motto "Be Prepared" has stood me in good stead over the years. Paul A. Samuelson." The book and letter are both in near fine condition. Rare and desirable. Its fundamental impact on the opinions and approaches of today's most influential economists is extraordinary. Upon publication this text immediately became the authority for the principles of economics courses. The book continues to be the standard-bearer for principles courses, and continues to be a clear, accurate, and interesting introduction to modern economics principles. The New York Times considered Samuelson to be the "foremost academic economist of the 20th century." Named to The Times Literary Supplement 100 most influential… Read more

Samuelson was in Haberler's first Harvard class in 1936. Haberler was an Austrian-American economist who worked in particular on international trade. One of his major contributions was reformulating the Ricardian idea of comparative advantage in a neoclassical framework, replacing the outdated labor theory of value with the modern opportunity cost concept.

Presentation copy, inscribed by Karl Shell on the front free endpaper. In fine condition. This is a book on the theory behind the construction of production index numbers. Well-known examples of such indexes are the Gross Domestic Product, the Producer Price Index, and labor productivity. Fisher and Shell provide the analysis behind this class of index numbers. They treat separately the different production units and different forms of industrial organization. They show the direction of bias in traditionally calculated index numbers and how biases can affect fundamental conclusions about the growth or stagnation of the economy.

Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the dedication page, "For Paul Douglass C. North." Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. On the eve of the Civil War the United States had already achieved rapid and sustained economic expansion. We had filled out our territorial boundaries, and the frontier was already encroaching upon the parched lands in the lee of the Rocky Mountains and moving east of the Sierra Nevadas. We were an industrial nation second only to Britain in manufacturing. Our expansion had been matched by an acceleration of economic well-being. The obstacles to American economic growth had been removed before the Civil War took place. That war was a costly and bitter interruption."

London: Macmillan & Company, 1919. First edition of the best-selling book that established Keynes' reputation as a leading economist. Octavo, original blue cloth with gilt titles and ruling to the spine. In near fine condition. The Economic Consequences of the Peace was written after Keynes attended the Versailles Conference as a delegate of the British Treasury and argued for a much more generous peace. It was a best-seller throughout the world and was critical in establishing a general opinion that the Versailles Treaty was a "Carthaginian peace". It helped to consolidate American public opinion against the treaty and involvement in the League of Nations. The perception by much of the British public that Germany had been treated unfairly in turn was a crucial factor in public support for appeasement. The success of the book established Keynes' reputation as a leading economist. When Keynes was a key player in establishing the Bretton Woods system in 1944, he remembered the lessons from… Read more

Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1981. First edition of Posner's classic work. Octavo, original cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the title page, "To John Roger with all best wishes Dick Posner." Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Richard A. Posner is the leading scholar in the rapidly growing field of the economics of law; he is also an extremely lucid writer. In this book, he applies economic theory to four areas of interest to students of social and legal institutions: the theory of justice, primitive and ancient social and legal institutions, the law and economics of privacy and reputation, and the law and economics of racial discrimination. The book is designed to display the power of economics to organize and illuminate diverse fields in the study of nonmarket behavior and institutions. A central theme is the importance of uncertainty to an understanding of social and legal institutions. Another major theme is that the logic of the law, in many ways but not all, appears… Read more
