The Scottish Annual and Book of the Braemar Gathering 1957
5 The Scottish Annual and Book of the Braemar Gathering 1957
Scotland Braemar Royal Highland Society 1957 Card cover Good condition 
This one has much to say in 326 pages, plus interesting advertising for hotels, perfume, office machines, clothing and much more in the back section. The best ads though are in the front with full color pictures -- especially the ad for Rolex watches. The annual measures 8-1/4" x 11". The yapped edges have been trimmed due to many small tears. The overhangs were scissored fairly well, but there is one little glitch to the outer side of the front cover. I also repaired two small tears with archival tape, one to front, and one to back. Among the article topics are a visit to Balmoral for the young Queen Victoria and a historic group in 1896; Scotland's Rare Fane; Housekeeping in Scotland in 1834; the Arrival of Queen Elizaeth to Balmoral in 1957;and Through the Royal Forest to Braemar. And those just a few things!

The Victoria and The Triton (Sea Voyages, Color Fold-out Map) 1962
6 The Victoria and The Triton (Sea Voyages, Color Fold-out Map) 1962
Norwalk, Connecticut Burndy Library 1962 Card Cover Very Good 
What a handsome booklet this is! It's oversized at 8-1/4"x10-3/4" and has 58 pages. Beautiful drawings and a lengthy text explore marine technology through two seafaring journeys four and a third centuries apart. The material is divided into two parts -- part one covers the Victoria and part two The Triton. The entire booklet is nice, but the showpiece is the color fold-out map at the center of the booklet(see second photo). It's clean and tightly bound with no names or other writing. Only fault is a small dark spot at top edge of front cover.

The Victoria Book of Days In Slipcase (1989)
7 The Victoria Book of Days In Slipcase (1989)
New York Hearst Books 1989 First edition stated Hard cover in slipcase Fine condition 
This is both pretty and wise, a gem to keep for yourself, or a gift for someone else. It's not a desk calendar, but a book of days which is divided into the four seasons. There's beautiful art in full color, classic poetry, snips from the text of classic books, recipes, and places to write your thoughts, your favorite things, and your memories. It has not been used and is clean and bright, as is the slipcase. The only minor thing is a pretty unused bookplate affixed to front paste down. The book measures 6-1/2" x 8-1/2". Among the authors are Emily Dickinson, Dylan Thomas, Louisa May Alcott, L.L. Montgomery who wrote the Anne of Green Gables books, and Shakeespeare.
