ISBN: 0932702473. 207pp/illus. Wyatt Earp walked into a fifteen-foot wide vacant lot and with two of his brothers and Doc Holiday to face the McLaurys and the Clantons. That twenty-five second gunfight that followed became the most famous shoot-out in history. However, the incident that catapulted Wyatt Earp into national headlines during his lifetime is the basis of this book. It was Wyatt Earp's decision in the heavyweight bout between Robert Fitzsimmons and 'Sailor' Tom Sharkey on December 2, 1896, in San Francisco. Wyatt refereed this bout with the sole authority to render the decision, should that be necessary. Perhaps a first in boxing history, Wyatt entered the ring armed with a pistol and was promptly disarmed by the police. Earp's decision at the end of the fight placed him at the center of a controversy. "The Earp Decision" is an edited composite of newspaper accounts of the fight including the court proceedings that followed. As New - Still shrink wrapped. $39.50

Very Good+ / No Jacket. 1850. (3 Vols bound in one). 165pp, (iv) 169pp (1 fldg.) & (iv) 169pp., a few text engravings. Full contemporary calf; with gilt tooled spine; raised bands; red calf title-piece; marbled edges & e.p’s. Boards stained & scratched; head of front joint starting, o/w V.G. Captain Basil Hall, Royal Navy, (1788-1844), sailed all over the world and wrote vivid accounts of his travels and experiences. He was present at the Battle of Corunna in 1809 during which Sir John Moore met his death, and he accompanied Lord Amherst’s Chinese embassy. Captain Hall also carried out pendulum observations off the coast of South America; interviewed Napoleon; and travelled extensively in North America in the years 1827-1828. Sadly, this intelligent naval officer, after an active and useful life, died insane at Haslar Naval Hospital, Gosport, in 1844. The book is divided into its original three series, the first containing 37 chapters, the second 27 chapters, and the third series also has 27 chapters. The First Series appeared originally in 1831 and the author’s aim was to introduce the adventures of naval life to the youngsters of the day. The Second Series appeared a year later in 1832. The Third and final series was published in 1840 only four years before his tragic demise. Captain Hall had the gift of keen observation and his writings have left us with vivid impressions of life at sea during the early 19th century - he entered the Royal Navy as a midshipman and first went to sea in 1802.

Near Fine / Near Fine. ISBN: 0750908076. Hard Cover/Boards. Near Fine/Near Fine. First Edition. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Book has 182 pages with illustrations. In the year 1070, four years after the Battle of Hastings, Saxon England lay prostrate under the heel of William the Conqueror. In the enveloping gloom of Norman oppression only one last centre of resistance remained - the Isle of Ely in the Fens of East Anglia. From this refuge emerged a leader destined to struggle against enormous odds in his defiance of Norman attacks; a man whose achievements cast him in the heroic mould, yet whose very existence remains a mystery. Much has been written about Hereward as a character of fiction or myth, but few attempts have been made to delve beneath the legend and discover why an apparently obscure Saxon thane became the embodiment of resistance to the Norman invader. This book attempts to fill the gaps and brings Hereward out of shadowy legend into the light of reality. It presents the evidence in a clear and concise manner, discusses the various versions and interpretations of his story and explains the enduring fascination that made Hereward the progenitor of Robin Hood and a figure of significance to literature and folklore. The tale of Hereward and his descendants is woven so firmly into the story of England that it brings together characters as disparate as the Conqueror himself, Lady Godiva, the Black Prince and the Fair Maid of Kent. Intriguingly, one genealogist carries the Hereward story across the Atlantic to Massachusetts, where a supposed descendant, John Harvard of Southwark, settled in the seventeenth century and there founded Harvard University. $19.50

Brought up in the Reformed faith, Maximilien was presented to Henry of Navarre in 1571 and was thereafter attached to the future King of France. After studying at the College of Bourgogne, he studied history and mathematics at the court of Henry of Navarre, and on the outbreak of the Civil War, enlisted in the Protestant Army. He displayed bravery in the field and exhibited a talent as an engineer. In 1583 he served as Henry's special agent in Paris. With the renewal of the Civil War in 1589 he served in the Army and was wounded at the battle of Ivry. As soon as Henry's power was established, Maximilien received rewards in the form of estates and dignities. He was made the sole superintendent of Finances in 1598 and brought order to the countries financial affairs, introducing several influential and important changes dealing with trade and economy. In 1599 Maximilien was appointed Commissioner of Highways and Public Works, Superintendent of Fortifications and Artillery; in 1602 Governor of Mantes, 1604 Governor of Poitou, and in 1606 Duke and Peer of Sully. Sully's influence was widespread; he encouraged agriculture, urged free circulation of produce, promoted stock raising, planned a system of canals and forbade the destruction of the forests. He strengthened the French military establishment, promoting the construction of great lines of defences on the frontiers. He represented Henry at the Court of King James I, arranged Henry's marriage to Marie De Medicis, and helped to put down several revolts by the nobility. Sully's political power and influence ended with assassination of Henry IV in 1620. While he was unpopular with his colleagues, he nonetheless exhibited a gifted executive ability throughout his career as well as an unbending loyalty to the King. Sully was largely responsible for the transformation in France between 1598-1610, when agriculture and commerce improved, and foreign peace and internal order were maintained. $495.00

She writes about the tobacco-user's renewed interestin chewing tobacco and snuff- and devotes a chapter to the plight of tobacco farmers.". Susan Wagner's account of this wondrous land and of tobacco's place in American history and politics is instructive and ironic. 'Such is the stuff of the nicotian apocrypha,' she writes, that in the story of tobacco 'it is not always easy to distinguish between fact and fiction.' But she succeeds. Pulled together in this book are little-known facts about pre-Columbian tobacco use, an account of tobacco-growing in Virginia in 1784, and stories behind the nostalgic slogans of the 1920's, '30's, and '40's. A sharp, detailed analysis of the political battles of the 1960's and 1970's begins with the bombshell report of the Surgeon General's Advisory Committee on Smoking and Health and goes through the ban on cigarette advertising on TV that took effect in January, 1971." $52.50
