New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $500 - $800

Description: [MARITIME LAW] SELDEN, JOHN. Mare clausum seu de dominio maris libri duo... London: Richard Meighen, 1635. First edition. 20th century cloth, all edges red. 11 1/8 x 7 1/4 inches (28.5 x 19.5 cm); [26] pp., [304], [14] pp. (lacking the preliminary and terminal blanks, which are counted in the ESTC pagination); with two fine engraved maps of Britain, and an emblematic woodcut at 2R2 verso. Light binding wear, missing the blanks as noted, Bar Association stamp on title, slight toning but generally a clean copy. Neat ownership inscription of Robert Discon dated 1709 at head of title. The first edition of this work claiming British sovereignty over the surrounding waters, which put forward the idea that the sea was as much subject to borders and dominion as the land. This contrasted with Grotius's notion of Mare liberum, the free ocean. Both works were intensely political in their nature and intent, but as a result of the continuing controversy between advocates of Mare clausum and Mare liberum, the concept of a three-mile limit to national waters evolved. This was subsequently replaced by most nations by today's more common twelve-mile limit. ESTC S117048; Sabin 78971; Alden/Landis 635/114. C The New York City Bar Association

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: $1,200 - $1,800

Description: Scarce "Any Other Weapon" Registered Harrington & Richardson Handy Gun Smoothbore Pistol Produced in the 1920s and 30s, the Handy Gun was marketed as an inexpensive and effective way of dealing with varmints at close ranges, and was the forefather of the modern rifled 45 Long Colt/410 "snake pistol". While not directly targeted by the 1934 National Firearms Act, the Handy Gun and it's competitors were effectively driven to extinction by the law. Brass bead front and frame groove rear sights, with "410-12 m/m CHOKE" on top of the barrel, the two line address on the right side of the frame and "H.&R. "HANDY GUN"" on the left. Fitted with a smooth forearm and pistol grip with prominent web spur. Manufacturer: Harrington & Richardson Inc Model: Handy BBL: 12 1/4 inch round Stock: Gauge: 410 Finish: blue/casehardened Grips: hardwood Serial Number: 36057 Class: Class III Condition: Very fine as modified (grip a non-factory period replacement), with 95% of the original blue finish, showing a few light scratches on the barrel and 97% vivid case color on the frame. The wood is very good, though the pistol grip is a custom replacement with a 1 1/2 inch crack extending from the front tang. Mechanically excellent. NOTE: This is a smoothbore pistol, an "Any Other Weapon" as defined by the National Firearms Act and registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in accordance with said law. It is the sole duty of the successful bidder to comply with the National Firearms Act and any other relevant Federal, State or local laws that affect their place of residence.

by Holabird Western Americana

Reno, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $100 - $150

Description: Small book: subtitle: the Sacred Myths of the Manitou by Ernest Whitney, M. A. assisted by William S. Alexnder, illustrated by Thomas C. Parrish. From the text: "However uncouth they may be, the myths and legends of early nations, like the poetry of later, give the highest and truest exponents of their characters, and preserve with a singular fidelity the very essence of their daily lives, their fears and hopes, their assumptions and intuitions. It is proverbial that the songs of a people are stronger than their laws; and the myths and traditions embodying the sentiments upon which national character, national religion, are founded, are more powerful than the songs, which they inspire. A ballad of the people, a bit of folk lore, may teach us more than whole chapters of history; we can hardly understand history without such lights." Published by the Chain & Hardy Co., Denver, CO. ( 7.5" x 5") 52 pp. Soft leatherette cover, nice illustrations, some wear, good condition. City: Pikes Peak State: Colorado, Circa: 1892
