    Cothren, William:  History of Ancient Woodbury, Connecticut From the First Indian Deed in 1659 to 1854 Including the Present towns of Washington, Southbury, Bethlem, Roxbury, and a part of Oxford and Middlebury. Volumes I, II and III.  Waterbury: Bronson Brothers, 1854, 1872 and 1879. First Edition. All three volumes of this complete set are similarly bound in their original dark brown, ribbed cloth covered boards with blind embossed borders on the boards and gilt text on the spines. They are all in very good+ condition; although volume III has a broken front hinge and volume II has an early prior owner's name on the front paste down. Foxing is limited to the preliminaries and index pages of volume I, the text blocks are otherwise tight and clean. Volume I contains 480 pages of text followed by a seven page index and a page of additions and corrections. The text is illustrated with a map, one engraving and numerous facsimiles of early settlers’ signatures and the marks of many Native Americans on the 17th century deeds they signed. Volume II contains pages 481 to 1610 followed by a six page index and three pages of errata. It is illustrated with a frontispiece of the author from an engraving, ten plates and vignettes throughout. Volume III contains 706 pages followed by four pages of additions and corrections and a one page index. Its focus is exclusively related to genealogical data for the town of Woodbury and for ancient Stratford from 1639 to 1728. An very uncommon set written over 32 years which covers the full history of the area. With its historical references to the early Indian deeds and genealogies of its early settlers in the third volume it remains a valuable source of information. Howes in his bibliography of U.S.Iana consider this "mildly scarce". (Howes C-796; Sabin 17029)

    Crane, Stephen:  The Red Badge of Courage An Episode of the American Civil War.  n. p.: Westvaco, West Virginia Pulp and Paper Company, 1968. Limited Edition. Fine in full black, pebbled leather covered boards with gilt text on the spine, blind embossing on the front board and decorated end sheets. It is important to note that a circular hole 7/16" (the same as a .45 caliber bullet) in diameter has been drilled through the front board and the first 190 pages of text. This hole does not effect any of the printed text as it is placed in the lower margin of each page. This hole was deliberately produced by the publisher and printer to provide a more realistic appearance for the book. Splashes of "blood" appear on many pages throughout the entire text. As a result of this treatment this volume has since been dubbed the "Red Badge of Courage with the bullet hole". Without a dust jacket as issued; however, the book is contained within a very good+, paper covered slip case with tanning to three side and rubbing at two corners. Part of the preface to the book is a facsimile reprint of the illustrations which appeared in the Rules for the Management and Cleaning of the Rifle Musket, Model 1863 for The Use of Soldiers with Descriptive Plates. These plates provide a detailed perspective of the hardware and mechanics for this rifle which was standard issue to troops in the U.S. Army during the Civil War. 203 pages of text with illustrations as aforementioned.
