Trade Paperback. Book. Very Good / No Jacket. ISBN: 0806134933. An interesting piece of Californiana, this is the story of John A. Sutter, Jr., the son of the man on whose property gold was first discovered in 1848, leading to the "49er" Gold Rush in California. John A. Sutter, Jr., had been raised in Switzerland while his father was pioneering and prospecting in California. Sutter, Jr., arrived in California and went to his father's property soon after gold was discovered. He found his father deeply in debt and chronically mismanaging his businesses and properties. He quickly tried to get his father out of debt - and largely succeeded - but in the process began to do business almost as irresponsibly as his father. His efforts led to the founding of the city of Sacramento, but left him in poor health, estranged from his father, and largely swindled by the people he did business with. After a couple of years, he fled to Mexico, where he spent most of the rest of his life. Half of the book is a brief biography, and the other half a "statement" by Sutter, Jr., first published in 1855 but largely forgotten, giving his own version of what occurred during the time he lived in California. 160 and xxii pages. $10.00

Privately printed biography of Lydia Moss Bradley, who endowed Bradley University in Peoria, IL.

It only touches on slavery in discussing some interaction with former slaves when she was growing up.

Includes partial family trees of the Duparc and Locoul families. Appears to be signed by "Marmillion."

Tepoztlan, the village, is placed on a time line that extends from the tenth century A.D. and the Toltec Empire, to the present; from legendary history to contemporary anthropological observation. The main focus of the book is life as it is lived today in this village, typical of many, by the Mexican peasant. Economics intrafamily relationships, and the life cycle are described. Dr. Lewis analyzes the inner feelings of the villagers, their motivations and values, and in the last chapter gives us a vivid account of change as Tepoztlan acquires electricity, new roads, buses -- and even formulas for bottle babies; all harbingers of more sweeping changes to come as the village of the Mexican peasant adapts to the impact of urbanization and industrialization."

ISBN: 0805053131. From the dust jacket: "Between 1846 and 1851, more than one million people - the famine emigrants - sailed from Ireland to America. Never before had the world witnessed such an exodus. Now, 150 years later, The Famine Ships tells the story of the courage and determination of those who crossed the Atlantic in leaky, overcrowded sailing ships to make new lives for themselves, among them the child Henry Ford and twenty-six-year-old Patrick Kennedy, great-grandfather of John F. Kennedy. Tracing the history of these years, The Famine Ships focuses principally on the poignant individual stories, such as that of a parish priest from Wexford who led eighteen families across the Atlantic and up the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers to found Wexford, Iowa, where their descendants still live." From the foreword: "While books on the Famine period have dealt with the journey, no publication has dealt specifically with the Irish-owned ships, the Irish crews who sailed them, the Irish ports they sailed from and the Irish passengers they carried in those years. The ships featured in this book made the crossings on the dates shown, at the times stated; passenger lists are from US immigration files, crew's papers for the specific voyages from marine archives, and a wealth of first-hand reports have contributed to the stories. Details have been taken from eye-witness accounts; original Certificates of Registration, paintings and contemporary lithograph drawings have been reproduced." 250 pages.  $10.00.  Shipping - $4.00.

ISBN: 9652238007. This is a Spanish-language edition of Israeli historian Haim Beinart's book published in English as "Sephardi Legacy." This is apparently volume I; there is a Roman numeral "I" below the title, but that is the only evidence that this is one of two volumes. The introduction also speaks of 38 chapters, but this volume has only 17 unnumbered chapters. Each chapter is an article by a different author, and so this is collection edited by, rather than authored by, Haim Beinert. The articles cover a wide range of topics, with several dealing with the Jews in Spain, several dealing with both popular and religious literature of Sephardic Jews, to chapters dealing with mass conversions and expulsion of the Jews. While mostly in very good condition, has the following flaws: illustrated ffep (map of the expulsion of the Jews from Spain) has some small tears and gouges along the outer edge, and the top left corner of the paste-down page has been off; there is also some discoloration to the map, probably from newsprint formerly left inside the cover; previous owner's name on half-title page is covered with black marker; and there is a ripple down the center of the illustrated front cover, as if the cover was not properly glued to the board (like a manufacturing flaw).  474 pages.  $20.00.  Shipping - $4.50.

Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Hardcover. Book. As New / Very Good. ISBN: 9781556706165. A magnificent book which is almost a museum catalog, presenting the artwork of three artists whose work focused on Native Americans during the period of 1820-1840. With beautiful prints of these paintings, along with explanatory text, on every page, this is almost an ethnographical study of Native Americans at that time. The three artists had noticeably different styles. From the preface: "Within the covers of this book are found the very best pictorial representations of Indian life made in the era before photography." The dust jacket has a blurb fro an 1830 guidebook describing the collection: "But for this gallery, our posterity would ask in vain - 'what sort of a looking being was the red man of this country?' In vain would the inquirers be told to read descriptions of him [yet] these could never satisfy. He must be seen to be known. Here then is sa gift to posterity." Chapters include "Introduction: Three Artists Meet the West;" "Charles Bird King: Portraits for the record;" "George Catlin: Rescuing the Indians from Oblivion;" and "Karl Bodmer: 'Over There I had Friends'." Extra shipping charges apply because of size (14 1/4" x 10 1/4") and weight. $35.00.  Shipping - $7.00.
