Auction Description for The Book Barn: Antique & Collectible Books-Art-Paper Civil War Antique Reference Signed Technical Outsider & Harper's Weekly Art, etc
Auction Description:

We try to put in each auction a cross of both scare collectible material as well as material for the casual reader/buyer. We do not use reserves, our Starting Bids act as our defacto reserve. We want to sell as much as we can by the legitimate auction process, not by some "auction-as-a-fixed-price-reserve-sale" process. There are no games, gimmicks, smoke & mirrors played. Our motto is, and always has been, "a empty shelf is a happy shelf."
Come empty our shelves & make them (and us) happy! We welcome bidder questions regarding any lot posted anytime, but caution that in the last two hours on the sale day we cannot promise a timely answer since that day is usually very hectic.

Thank you for your consideration of our material & any participation in our auction.

Ann & Harry Polizzi
The Book Barn

Conditions Of Sale::
The Book Barn is located in Wells, Maine from late May to Late October and in Edgewater Florida from early November to mid-May. My wife and I have been in business since 1985, in a brick & mortar store whose physical property we sold in 2007. We continue to offer books, autographs, paper, and music online at various sites.

We consider our business to be a reader's as well as a collector's inventory. We have an approximate inventory of 10,000-15,000 items---including both hard cover & paperback books----in addition to movies, music. autographs, & prints for both the reader and collector.

In Invaluable online auction mode, we have no reserve prices on items, using our "starting bid" in lieu of a sometimes confusing and always irritating reserve price. Bidders will note that lot(s) with very low Staring Bids, i. e. $1-$5, should in no way see the Starting Bid of $1-$5 as the Book Barn's judgment on the value of the item(s) contained in the lot(s). We have been in the Used/OP book business for 30+ years & have a LOT of inventory, with more piling up weekly. (Sometimes it seems to us that books breed at night, so there are always more of them over time!) There is NO reserve on these lots. These low Starting Bid lot(s) are meant to lower our inventory by providing bidders the opportunity to buy material at a low prices----we call it the "Eek" price; as in "Eek! That's all it sold for?" Our lack of storage is your opportunity to buy material at a low price.

My wife and I also author articles on investing for income on Seeking Alpha.com, e-books, as well as publishing scarce out-of-print Public Domain titles in e-book format on Amazon Kindle publishing. Our e-books are also available through Draft2Digital.com for Nook, iBookstore, etc. readers. Our e-books are mostly non-fiction in the area of 1) U. S. Civil War, 2) U. S. Indian wars; especially those in Texas & on the Great Plains, and 3) Texas History; both as a Republic and as a state. Our e-book titles can be found by a Google or other search of my name---Harry Polizzi---for any voracious readers that may be interested.

Joseph Rudyard Kipling 1865-1936 was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. Kipling's works of fiction include "The Jungle Book" (1894), "Kim" (1901), and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). His poems include "Mandalay" (1890), "Gunga Din" (1890), & "The White man's Burden" (1899). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children's books are classics of children's literature; and one critic described his work as exhibiting "a versatile and luminous narrative gift". Kipling was one of the most popular writers in the United Kingdom, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1907, at the age of 42, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and its youngest recipient to date. Kipling's subsequent reputation has changed according to the political and social climate of the age and the resulting contrasting views about him have continued for much of the 20th century.

Although opposed to the Union blockade of Southern ports, for which he was castigated as a traitor at the opening of the war, he duly carried out his part of the Anaconda Plan, largely sealing-off the Confederate coastline and preventing the exchange of cotton for war supplies. This is viewed as a major cause of the eventual Union victory in the Civil War, and his achievement in expanding the Navy almost tenfold was widely praised. Welles was also instrumental in the Navy's creation of the Medal of Honor." Illustrated. Previous owner's bookplate inside front board of each volume, o/w internally tight and unmarked.

McCully, who was assigned to the Russian side. Written after his return to the United States in 1905, his report is based on a detailed diary he maintained while in Russia. That diary is now in the National Archives. It clearly shows that The Japanese were aggressively prepared for the military domination of "their" Asia.

Description: Bidders will note that lot(s) with very low Staring Bids, i. e. $1-$5, should in no way see the Starting Bid of $1-$5 as the Book Barn's judgment on the value of the item(s) contained in the lot(s). We have been in the Used/OP book business for 30+ years & have a LOT of inventory, with more piling up weekly. (Sometimes it seems to us that books breed at night, so there are always more of them over time!) There is NO reserve on these lots. These low Starting Bid lot(s) are meant to lower our inventory by providing bidders the opportunity to buy material at a low prices—we call it the "Eek" price; as in "Eek! That's all it sold for?" Our lack of storage is your opportunity to buy material at a low price. Antique 19th Century Scientific Periodical. 1884 issue of "Popular Science Monthly" published in NYC beginning in 1872 & still in existence as "Popular Science." Volume XXVI; Number I; November 1884. "Founded in 1872 by Edward Youmans to disseminate scientific knowledge to the educated layman. There was a great Tsunami of Scientific invention & investigation in the late 19th Century in both America & Europe. The public became interested in these marvelous new wonders & wanted information understandable to the interested layman, about them, which periodicals like Popular Science Monthly" were founded to satisfy. Youmans had previously worked as an editor for the weekly "Appleton's Journal" and persuaded them to publish his new journal. Early issues were mostly reprints of English scientific periodicals. "Popular Science Monthly" became an American outlet for the writings and ideas of the "new" sciences & inventions of Charles Darwin, Thomas Henry Huxley, Louis Pasteur, Henry Ward Beecher, Charles Sanders Pierce, William James, Thomas Edison, John Dewey and James McKeen Cattell. This issue is November 1884. It is loaded with scientific discoveries of that day. Illustrated with B&W engravings. The last pages contain advertisements of all sorts, some with engraved illustrations. This issue contains an early medical treatise by William A. Hammond entitled: "The relations between the Mind and the Nervous System." It was not until the late 1800's that medicine began to see that mental disorders could be treated by medicine & began to explore the relationship between the mind & the nervous system. Thus began the new medical practice of psychiatry. An article by J. B. Craighead: "The Future of the Negro in the South," explores the plight of the American Negro in the former Slave states since their emancipation after the Civil War. In the typical racist view of that day he concludes the Negro is only marginally better off than in slavery, but his OWN "mental & moral deficiencies" cause this miserable existence! "Popular Science Monthly" was published continuously from 1872 to the present. Scattered stains to front/back covers/light age toning to paper but not brittle/starting at spine creases.

Nice example of a 3/4 leather binding, decorated blue Levant Morocco leather with gold lettering/decorations. "This 'dream-laden and spooked' story is to many one of the best-loved books of the twentieth century. Munthe spent many years working as a doctor in Southern Italy, laboring unstintingly during typhus, cholera and earthquake disasters. It was during this period that he came across the ruined Tiberian villa of San Michele, perched high above the glittering Bay of Naples on Capri. Munthe devoted himself to rebuilding the house and chapel. Over five long summers he toiled under a sapphire-blue sky, their mad-cap project leading them to buried skeletons and ancient coins, and to hilarious encounters with a rich cast of vividly-drawn villagers. Peopled with unforgettable characters, it is as brilliantly enjoyable and readable today as it was upon first publication. The book quickly became an international bestseller and has now been translated into more than 30 languages; it is today an established classic."
