I have some things "put away" and not on view in the shop in Walpole, New Hampshire, for various reasons -- a beautiful dustjacket that I want to keep that way, oversize book not easily shelved in the shop, a book that people enjoy looking at and I do not want mishandled in any way.  Value is not a factor here, more a desire to keep an item very nice for you.  So, this is an eclectic assortment of 28 items that I currently have "put away" in the vault or a showcase in February, 2010, that you may enjoy browsing through.  Of course, if you wish to add any of these items to your own "vault" you can place an order at any time. Thank you, yours, RAY

4. Abbot, Gorham D. (often misspelled Abbott, Gorham D.), MEXICO, AND THE UNITED STATES; THEIR MUTUAL RELATIONS AND COMMON INTERESTS, G. P. Putnam & Son, New York, 1869, 2 engraved portraits, map, 391pp, very good, brown cloth (hardcover) light fray top/bottom spine, According to the publisher's prospectus which is laid in, "This work...Its design is, to exhibit the relations and interests of the two Republics, in various aspects, with a view to indicate the line of policy they suggest, as most promotive of the future welfare of the people of both countries." "With Portraits on Steel of Juarez and Romero. An elaborate Colored Map of Mexico..." The folding map by Colton of Mexico is exceptional. It probably has been opened an average of once every 45 years - the colors are bright and the paper crisp. The title page mentions maps, and the prospectus indicates a Mecator Map of the World in addition to the map stated above. On examination of this book, there is no indication that another map was ever present. Two auction records exist for this book (1979 and 1992), and they mention only the two portraits & "folding hand-colored map", singular!!! It is also interesting to note that the author's name on the title page and spine is ABBOT, and on the prospectus ABBOTT. Interestly enough, the CD-Rom American Book Prices Current also lists the author erroneously as ABBOTT, with no references to ABBOT. Other than the light wear to the top and bottom of the spine this is an exceptionally nice copy of an exceptionally uncommon book., (Order No: 17568 ), $550.00
