Description:
1806 Froissart Chronicles Illustrations Hundred Years' War Medieval ChivalryThe 'Chronicles' of Jean Froissart have continually been perceived as an important work on medieval history for centuries, since its inception in the 14th-century. While some of the subjects covered are repetitive and insignificant, many topics are of utmost importance including famous battles, deaths of monarchs, and the Catholic Church Great Schism. According to Adams in the "Manual of Historical Literature,""Froissart might be called the great interviewer of the Middle Ages. The newspaper correspondent of modern times has scarcely surpassed this medieval collector of intelligence. He travelled extensively in the various countries of Europe; he conversed with gentlemen of rank everywhere; and he had the remarkable knack of persuading those about him to divulge all he wanted to know. He learned the details of battles from both sides and from every point of view. He delighted in the minutest affairs of every cavalry skirmish,… Read More

Paul Lacroix was a 19th-century French author whose books covered a broad set of topics, including some controversial. Lacroix wrote about ballets, costumes, romance, masquerades, heraldry, religion in the military, and the history of prostitution. One of his best books was "Louis XII et Anne de Bretagne", a history of early 16th-century France and the reuniting of Brittany and France.
While the contents of this and other Lacroix works are fascinating, it is the exquisite binding and color illustrations that make this book so desirable. It contains more than 200 illustrations in addition to the 14 chromolithograph engravings!

Description:
1842 William Paley Natural Theology Christian Apologetics Science Philosophy
A scarce printing of William Paley's famous Christian apologetics work, 'Natural Theology'. A scientific and philosophical treatise, this title is commonly referenced amongst scholars when discussing the history and development of the modern understanding of scientific evolution. Significantly influenced by naturalist John Ray's work, Paley further developed Ray's ideas by proposing that the oft-observed complex adaptations seen in plants and animals were evidence of benevolent divine design. Notably, this work is also the origin of the "watchmaker analogy" a now, well-known, and commonly used teleological argument.
This rare, illustrated edition includes the highly-desired companion collection of 40 engraved plates by James Paxton that were originally independently published in 1826.

"An Expedition to the Valley of the Great Salt Lake of Utah" is a comprehensive report by Howard Stansbury detailing his two-year survey expedition of the Great Salt Lake in Utah, starting in 1849. Ordered by Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, the mission was to evaluate emigration trails, scout possible locations for a transcontinental railroad, and study the region's geography, natural history, and mineral composition. Despite initial challenges, Stansbury's team made significant explorations and collected extensive scientific data, even discovering a more direct route through the Rocky Mountains. The expedition also described the Mormon community's domestic relations. The report emphasized the region's hidden agricultural and mineral wealth, suggesting its potential for future development.

St. Ives: Being The Adventures of a French Prisoner in England (1897) is an unfinished novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. It was completed in 1898 by Arthur Quiller-Couch. Unable to write, Stevenson dictated thirty chapters of the novel to his stepdaughter as a diversion from his debilitating illness. He alternated dictating St. Ives and The Weir of Hermiston but gradually lost interest in the former. The plot concerns the adventures of the dashing Capitaine Jacques St. Ives, a Napoleonic soldier, after his capture by the British. Condition: Corners bumped and rubbed, shelf wear, hinges and spine heal moderately rubbed, previous owner's name on front end paper else a very good copy.
