SHANGHAI, Photographed and Depicted by Ellen Thorbecke with Sletches by Schiff. Published by North-China Daily News & Herald Ltd., Shanghai. 82 pages. Undated, but presumed early 1940's. Latest date of titles listed in the 2-page Bibliography is 1938. Graphs of trade and China population go through 1940. Decorative end papers and pastedowns. Interior intact, firm hinges, no foxing or staining or markings. Toning to pages, but these thicker pages have held up well. Pictorial boards have slight scuffing to top and bottom of spine and to bottom of back board; two corners have slight brown staining. Dust jacket, now protected in acid-free clear cover, shows some edgewear and chipping, but no large chunks missing. No printed price, but unclipped. Fascinating snapshot of Shanghai, covering a multitude of topics and including history leading up to the period. Lots of photos, plus delightful and colorful little drawings throughout. $750.00

ADDRESS OF HON. EDWARD EVERETT, AT THE CONSECRATION OF THE NATIONAL CEMETARY AT GETTYSBURG, 19TH NOVEMBER, 1863, WITH THE DEDICATORY SPEECH OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN, AND THE OTHER EXERCISES OF THE OCCASION. “Published for the benefit of the Cemetery Monument Fund.” 1864; first printing; Little, Brown and Company. Includes not only Everett’s long speech, but also a hymn composed for the occasion, a dirge, a benediction, and other pieces including, of course, Lincoln’s address, which takes up but one of the 88 numbered pages. Provenance: Brief owner inscription on reverse of second free endpaper indicates owner “heard Lincoln give his address”. Research indicates this owner was a member of the Pennsylvania Volunteers between 1861 and 1865. Book came to us from a direct descendant of this original owner.
No dust jacket. Map on frontispiece plus fold-out cemetery map bound in between pages 8 and 9. Bit of cemetery map offsetting on the map itself where folded over; otherwise near-perfect intact condition. A couple of pages have very tiny nicks and another couple have slight smudging. Publisher name on full title page circled in ink. No foxing, no water staining or other damage to interior. Front hinge slightly cracked following second free endpaper. Corners of boards abraded and top ” of top of spine missing. Gilt lettering on spine (“Consecration of the Cemetery at Gettysburg” in all caps) remarkably bright, with only slight wear to the word “Gettysburg.” Slight spotting to front boards; latest owner stated she had scraped off a piece of melted wax with her fingernail. A few tiny scratches to front and back boards, and a very light 1-1/2” (drink?) circle on front. These latter defects are mostly only visible when book is tilted in the light. $2,500.00. Subject to prior sale.
