  • Pearl S. Buck Novels - Set of 5
    Fans of Pearl S. Buck will relish this set of five novels, published by P.F. Collier & Sons, from 1932-1940. The set includes 'Sons' (1932), 'A House Divided' (1935), 'This Proud Heart' (1938), 'The Patriot' (1939), and 'Other Gods' (1940). These are presumed First Edition hardcovers (this edition) in brick leatherette covered boards, impressed with a cloud design framing a Chinese peasant carrying a yoke over his shoulder under a tree. The titles are gold & on the spine. The cover designs are best seen under a bright light. All of these books are in very good condition, with minor shelf wear. The texts are clean and tight. There are two tiny stains on the page edges of 'A House Divided.' Otherwise, the books are unmarked. I don't believe they came with jackets. Other novels by this author, including 'The Good Earth' can be added to this set, if you are lucky enough to find them. Pearl S. Buck won both The Pulitzer Prize and The Nobel Prize. This is a great vintage set, listed for less than the price of the books if sold individually.

It tells the story of one of the most iconic bats in the game and it's improbably journey into the possession of a 12 year old boy. Story by Kevin Guilfoile, packaged by Field Notes in their trademark high quality fashion.
  • Victorian Jewelry Design Book
    Jewelry design was extremely inventive during the second half of the 19th Century. 'Victorian Jewelry Design' surveys the lovely handworked jewelry of this era and the jewelry designers who rebelled against the introduction of mass jewelry production. This comprehensive, 285-page book identifies the various styles and fashion which influenced designers - including Neo-Gothic, archaeological, Japanese and Indian art and whimsical botanical novelties. Tracing the influences of the radical changes in Victorian fashion, the book describes how artists, including the Pre-Raphaelites and the leaders of Art Nouveau, often created their own pieces, and if-not, greatly inspired jewelry fashion. This 1972 First Edition hardcover by Charlotte Gere was published by Henry Regnery Co. It is fully illustrated with more than 130 black-and-white photos. The book is in very good, unmarked condition. A rather scarce reference for costume and fashion designers, collectors of antique jewelry and contemporary jewelry designers.
