The thing I like about folded maps is that moment when it unfolds in all its glory -- especially if the colors are strong and the size is huge. This one is THAT one -- yellow and blue domination and a whopping 28" across and 34" tall. When folded it measures 4-1/2" x 9-1/2". A former owner wrote his name on the top in pencil, but I never like to erase that sort of thing, but you can if you want. There's also a travel stamp that makes it look official. View more info

Publisher: U.S.A., Privately printed: 1937

Seller ID: 2268

This is one of those items collectors seek to augment a collection of a favorite author's books. Christopher Morley, best known for Parnassus on Wheels and The Haunted Bookshop, penned this letter to F.P. Frazier of J.B. Lippincott about another book he wrote -- "The Trojan Horse". The booklet is a contemplation on the process of writing and the thoughts that drove the book forward. Morley unabashedly loved writing and admitted in these 16 pages that writimg the letter was fun. The booklet is very clean and nice and measures 5"x7-1/2". View more info

Very handsome cookbook illustrated charmingly by the author who begins her book with a brief close-up of each island. After that comes the recipes -- YES, there's baklava!-- but also stuffed grape leaves, spinach pies, Greek meatballs, mousaka, lamb stew with fillo (phyllo), Easter bread, St. Basil's bread and many more. Book measures 6" x 8-1/2" and has 203 pages. Binding is with a plastic comb which has no breaks. The only fault is a faint stain to the outer edge of the front cover near the corner and the same on the next page. Overall quite nice. View more info
