    HISTORY OF COLUSA AND GLENN COUNTIES (California) with BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES of the LEADING MEN and WOMEN of the COUNTIES who have been identified with their growth and development from the early days to the present. Histories written by Charles Davis McComish and Mrs. Rebecca T. Lambert. Complete in One Volume, as stated on the title page.

    Published by HISTORIC RECORD COMPANY, Los Angeles, California, 1918. FIRST EDITION.

    ASSOCIATION COPY: This copy has an original 1917 SALES RECEIPT paper clipped onto a front blank prelim page. It was apparently ordered from a prospectus prior to the book's publication. The copy was ordered by JONAS LUNDEEN. Jonas Lundeen's biography is included in the book on page 943. His signature is at the top of a blank prelim and on the rear pastedown, in addition to being on the order slip. Johas Lundeen lived in Glenn County, California.

    The book has two main sections, a HISTORY section which provides a lengthy history of both Colusa County and Glenn County, and a BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES section that provides biographies of the "Leading Men and Women of the Counties". It is well known that the Biographical Sketches section contains biographies and portraits of "Leading Men and Women" who PAID to have their biographies included. That is how the publisher covered its costs and made profits. It also made profits by selling copies to those whose biographies are in the book, e.g. Jonas Lundeen. Though a VANITY publication, this early look at Colusa and Glenn Counties has become an important historical and genealogical record of the time.

    ILLUSTRATED throughout with b&w PLATES, primarily portraits of "Prominent Citizens" in the Biographical Sketches section, but also including a some photos in the History section.

    Original Hardcovers, black cloth covered boards with leather corners, 8x10.5 inches, 1074 pages.

    Condition - Needs Rebinding The REAR COVER IS DISBOUND but present, the front cover is holding on only by the binding cords, the SPINE COVERING IS COMPLETELY LACKING, the front marbled endpapers are present but the rear endpapers are lacking, the TEXT BLOCK IS VERY SHAKY and many signatures are only holding on by a string or two, the latter signatures are basically loose because they will come loose with the slightest tug, some tissue guards are present many are not. Nonetheless, the PAGES ARE COMPLETE, show just a smudge, crease, or bit of wear here and there, and are still bright, clean and clear.

    RARE ORIGINAL 1918 FIRST EDITION that NEEDS and is a perfect copy for REBINDING. (Beware the numerous Print On Demand sellers whose "books" are sometimes described in ways that make them seem original. Read listings carefully and fully.)

    Photo Album of CHADBOURNE T. WHITMORE, a TEACHER and a PRINCIPAL in HAYWARD, GRANDVIEW, and WAUSAU, WISCONSIN. He taught both Grade School, Jr. High School, and High School.

    Photo album containing 63 b&w photos. Hardcovers, 6x11 inches, 32 pages have photos mounted on them. All the leaves in the rear are blank. (Approximately 1/4 of the leaves have photos and 3/4 are blank.)

    The photos are of various sizes, most 2.5x3.5 and 3.5x5 inches, with some larger. The photos are glued onto the album pages.

    The first 37 photos are of family and friends, mostly outdoors, and include 2 photo postcards, one of an "Airplane View of Hayward, Wis" and one of "High School Hayward Wis". These photos do not have names or dates. The next 26 photos are photos of classes, teachers, student groups, and student activities. Only a couple of these photos are captioned with names or dates, they are of a High School Glee Club show that took place in 1934. C. Whitmore is named as a "coach".

    Laid in are four letters from Chadbourne T. Whitmore to various Wisconsin school districts where he taught and/or served as Principal. The letters are from 1975 and are seeking official verification for the years he taught at the various Wisconsin school districts in the 1930s and early 1940s. He needed verification of the years he taught in Wisconsin in order to receive credit in his state's retirement system. The letters themselves are somewhat interesting as they are full of names of fellow teachers, principals, people he lived with while teaching, etc. A bit of Wisconsin genealogy.

    This photo album seems to be from the period mentioned in the letters, 1930s and early 1940s. This album was perhaps presented as proof of his life in Wisconsin and of the places where he taught and the students whom he taught.

    GOOD condition: The covers have wear to the corners and spine ends but are sturdy and doing their job well; the inner album pages have toned, a few of the photos have faded otherwise the photographs are bright, clear and sharp.

    THREE of FOUR called for ORIGINAL LITHOGRAPHS ARE PRESENT. (In addition the front cover of Issue No. 14 is a Lithograph by Emile GILIOLI). Issue No. 14 includes the following Original Lithos: a FRONT COVER LITHOGRAPH by EMILE GILIOLI and Lithographs by ALECHINSKY and FIEDLER. It also contains two "Dessins En Facsimile" by Dubuffet that look and feel like lithographs. It is lacking the lithograph by Chagall. Issue No. 15 includes a Lithograph by MIRO. It is lacking its front cover. Both issues are also full of many beautifully printed color illustrations and numerous b&w illustrations. Each issue has approximately 130 pages.

    Issue No. 15 has a section titled "The Revolution of Color" that includes great full color reproductions of artworks by Derain, Matisse, Degas, Leger, Chagall, Braque, Ernst, Miro, Rothko, and others.

    CONDITION: EX-LIBRARY (deaccessioned from the Lambeth Public Library, near London, England), bound in library hardcovers, gilt shelving number on spine, library bookplate on the inside front cover of Issue No. 14, library stamps on all title pages, and library stamps here and there throughout. PLEASE NOTE that there is a red "Lambeth Public Libraries" stamped discreetly at the bottom of the bound in original lithographs by Alechinsky and Miro (the stamp on the Miro litho is almost entirely obscured by the bottom black border),and on one of the two Dubuffet "facsimiles". The front cover original lithograph by Emile Gilioli does NOT have a stamp but does have a long diagonal crease (not visible but tangible). There is also a library stamp just below or just above almost all of the beautiful color illustrations, presumably to keep them from being taken from the book (and it seemed to have worked!). The front cover to Issue No. 15 and the Chagall Litho in Issue No. 14 are lacking, as noted above. Nonetheless, the issues are well preserved, well bound, clean, with original lithographs, facsimiles, and rich color illustrations that are gorgeous.

After placing your order you will be notified of the additional charges and be able to accept or reject them before your payment is processed.

    About Wilhelm Hermann Henneberg (from Wikipedia, roughly translated from the German by Google):

    ******Wilhelm Hermann Henneberg, b.1871 d.1936,

    was a German bacteriologist and first director of the Bacteriological Institute at the Prussian Experimental and Research Institute of Dairy.

    From 1897 he was employed in the vinegar department at the Institute of Fermentation in Berlin. From 1906 he headed the bacteriological department of the technical scientific laboratory of the Institute of Fermentation. In 1922 he was appointed to Kiel to head the Bacteriological Institute of the Prussian Experimental and Research Institute of Dairy Farming. In the eleven years as a university professor in Kiel, he supervised more than 80 dissertations and wrote several textbooks on the bacteriology of milk. Henneberg initiated the founding of the Federation of Technical Bacteriologists .

    For bacteriological diagnostics, Henneberg invented new methods of investigation, such as the Chinese blue water agar developed especially for dairy farming, the spring stick culture and the cover glass agar method.

    In his last years he devoted himself to the study of the saprophyte flora of the intestine and the human intestinal flora, in particular their conversion by the consumption of dairy products such as yoghurt and acidophilus milk.******

    About LOUIS JURINE (from Wikipedia):

    ******Louis Jurine, b.1751 d.1819, was a Swiss physician, surgeon and naturalist. He lived in Geneva.

    He studied surgery in Paris and quickly acquired a great reputation for his expertise in medicine and natural history. He taught courses in anatomy and surgery at the Société des Arts in Geneva and was made honorary professor of zoology at the Academy (today: University of Geneva). He also founded a maternity hospice in 1807 and was awarded prizes for his work on the gasses of the human body, artificial feeding of infants, and pectoral angina.

    Upon learning of Spallanzani's experiments with bats, in which Spallanzani showed that bats do not rely on sight when navigating in darkness, Jurine conducted a series of experiments from which he concluded that bats use sound to navigate in darkness. Jurine's collections of Hymenoptera, Coleoptera, Lepidoptera and Hemiptera are in the Natural History Museum of Geneva.******

Though a vanity publication at the time, it is now considered an important genealogical and historic resource.)

    All 4 Books are in FINE condition, there are a couple pages with a few letters or numbers at their edges that appear to be part of the facsimile reprint; overall the volumes basically look and feel as new.

    A hard to find four volume set of books on the history and genealogy of Hartford County, Connecticut. A solid, usable, attractively produced facsimile reprint.

    INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: These four books are heavy and will require substantial additional shipping charges.

    Dakota Constitutional Conventions of 1885 and 1889. TWO VOLUME SET.

    (1) DAKOTA CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION Held at SIOUX FALLS, September 1885

    and

    (2) SOUTH DAKOTA CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION Held at SIOUX FALLS, July 1989.

    (The 1885 convention was unsuccessful in obtaining statehood for Dakota so a second convention was held in 1889, which split the territory into two states. Thus BOTH volumes are essential for understanding how the conventions brought about statehood for North and South Dakota.)

    "Published under the Editorial Supervision of Doane Robinson, STATE LIBRARIAN." Printed by Huronite Printing Company, Huron, South Dakota, 1907. FIRST EDITION.

    "Published under the Editorial Supervision of Doane Robinson, STATE LIBRARIAN." Printed by Huronite Printing Company, Huron, South Dakota, 1907. FIRST EDITION.

    This Set is ONE of only 1000 COPIES bound in half sheep binding. From the "Authority to Publish" page at the beginning of Volume I: "Number of Copies: One thousand sets of such debates shall be printed and substantially bound in half sheep binding, under the direction of the commissioner of public printing."

    Two Volumes, Hardcovers, Half Sheep Leather (i.e. leather spine and corners) with marbled paper covered boards. Burgundy leather title labels on the spines, 6x9 inches, 700 and 575 pages respectively (Volume Two actually has 569 pages, the last page number 575 is a printer's error, should have been 569).

    ASSOCIATION COPIES. These volumes both have the ownership signature of E. L. STAVIG (1888-1965), who was a member of the South Dakota State Senate from 1939 to 1948.

    FAIR condition: The covers are rubbed and worn, especially at the edges, spine ends, and spine folds, but are still quite attractive and doing their job. Internally, the inner hinges are split and tender but holding; Volume I has a 1 inch closed tear on pages15 to 30 and much more significantly has numerous stiff creases to the top corner area of pages 31 to 160, as if stepped on (nonetheless these pages still remain tightly bound and their text is fully legible); otherwise the pages of both volumes are just lightly toned and remain tight, bright, clean and clear.

    An ORIGINAL, COMPLETE, TWO VOLUME SET with an ASSOCIATION to an EARLY SOUTH DAKOTA STATE SENATOR with the creased pages as noted above.
