1924-25 WHITE MOUNTAIN NATURAL CURIOSITY BOOKLETS – BOXED SETIn the 1920s, Guy Roberts of Whitefield, New Hampshire, published a number of booklets of the natural beauty and wonders of the White Mountain tourist areas. Roberts loved the area, and the Old Man of the Mountains. In 1906 he discovered the condition of the Old Man, and advocated for measures to be taken to secure the rocks. His booklets are often found, and when found run $25 and up. His booklets measure about 3 1/4 inches by 6 1/4 inches, and in some instances the text opens up on a fan-fold sheet. Boxed sets were sold, and this auction is for one of the Roberts’ Series in the original box. The paper label from the box top is chipped and loose, and the sides of the box top lid are lacking as you will see later – below are the booklets in this set:

1816 and 1835 – DARTMOUTH COLLEGE ARCHIVE – FOUR BOOKLETS – HANOVER, NEW HAMPSHIREThe Old Settler Bookshop was a Walpole, NH, tradition from 1929 to 1987 when its owner, Bob Kolvoord died. Bob made many a trip to Hanover buying books and libraries. When the c1786 home the shop was in was sold, about ten years ago, I had the opportunity to purchase what stock remained tucked away.

Ellis, Boston, MA, 1876. 360 pages, fold-out map (not illustrated here), a few illustrations; and, followed by 365 pages GENEALOGICAL AND HISTORICAL REGISTER. Condition Note – loose hinges, and some signatures a tad loose. However, a good serviceable “working copy” of the original edition for the historian. This first edition usually runs $300 and up. Selling books full-time for over 30 years, I do not like to catalog material with faults on my website – I prefer to offer to my Ebay customers, with illustrations of those faults – easier with a picture, so you know what you are buying. Thus a low price, for this and the other items I also offer “sold with all faults – WAF.”

HISTORY OF LAWRENCE MASSACHUSETTS WITH WAR RECORDS, by Maurice B. Dorgan – 1924
Published by the Author, 1924, 267pp CONDITION NOTE – FAINT DAMPSTAIN along foreedge of about the first 60 pages of the book block – not affecting text, some light foxing. Also, this copy LACKS THE TITLE PAGE. I have a second copy on the shelves in my shop ($25), so have been able to provide the title page information here. The title page in my other copy is almost detached having originally been tipped in – thus no wonder it is lost in the copy I offer here. A book, with history beginning in Colonial times, that should go home to its Lawrence MASS – MA home.
