Hoke Smith and the Politics of the New South
Item #: NEW-0013091

Click image to enlarge
This is a first edition from the LSU Press, printed in 1958.  There is shelf wear to the boards and the dust cover, including chipping. Someone wrote some numbers in ink on the front dust cover which can be seen in the scan.

Smith was born in Newton, North Carolina, and moved to Georgia in 1872 with his parents. His uncle was Civil War General Robert Hoke. Smith passed the bar examination in 1873 and became a lawyer in Atlanta, Georgia. 

Smith served as chairman of the Fulton County and State Democratic Conventions and was president of the Atlanta Board of Education. In 1887, Smith bought the Atlanta Journal. His strong support in the Journal for Grover Cleveland during the 1892 Presidential election garnered Cleveland's attention which led to a federal job as Secretary of the Interior.

Smith allied himself with Bryan's Vice Presidential candidate, Populist Tom Watson, one of Georgia's most influential politicians. With Watson's support, Smith was elected governor in 1907. In order to gain Watson's support, however, he had to call the Negro vote "ignorant [and] purchasable." Smith established several Jim Crow laws requiring literacy tests and property ownership for voting. Smith also supported railroad reform and election reform. After losing the support of Watson, he was defeated in the next election by Joseph M. Brown. Smith was re-elected as governor in 1911.

In 1911 while still governor, he was chosen by the Georgia General Assembly to fill out the term of United States Senator Alexander S. Clay. Smith won re-election in 1914, but was defeated by Tom Watson in 1920. Afterward, Smith practiced law in Washington, DC, and Atlanta. He died in 1931 and is buried in Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta.

Tables of Discount on British Sterling-1856
Item #: NEW-0012089

Click image to enlarge
This would make a neat item for a country store display.  I could not find an example of this for sale on the web although it is recorded in several historical websites.  This book, however, is earlier than the books cited and was published in 1856. The original book was printed in 1830 by Joshia Loring.  The book was made for the use of merchants, in this case Carhart & Curd of Macon Ga, so that they could "ascertain the cost of imported goods, and to sell by advance."  The book seems to have different titles, "Tables of Advance British Sterling" and "Tables of Discount on British Sterling" Enoch Chase published the book in 1856.  The front cover is missing and you can see the condition of the front end paper in the second scan. The books is divided into two parts, half upside down, presumably as made.  The books measures 9 and a half by 5 and a half inches.  The pages are made of rag. The book is still bound with the exception of one page which is loose.  It's appears to be complete but it is hard to tell.  The book was found in the walls of a house that was being worked on.  The book is very dingy in areas and has a musty smell.  Airing it out should improve the smell.  The dinginess is most prominent on the end papers, title page and the next few pages, which also are creased. By far most of the pages are clean.

Travel Journal-Elizabeth Myrl (Peggy) James-World Trip 1937-38
Item #: NEW-0011970

Click image to enlarge
Unpaged typewritten material consisting of Elizabeth James's remarkable letters to her family in St Louis, covering an eight month tour around the world. I haven't counted the pages but am guessing it is about 60 pages.  The covers are of a suede like material but are quite worn at the edges and partially detached. This came in a lot that I purchased and I decided to read it before I tossed it.  The letters were quite interesting and informative about the many countries she traveled to.   Miss James's father was evidently a very important man as wherever her entourage traveled they met with movie stars, ambassadors and heads of state.  She was very astute in sensing the furtive preparations for war in Japan. and experienced two typhoons. She was quite enamored with China and Japan not so much. 
Here are some of the names mentioned in the journal-Mr & Mrs Herbert Fleishacker, Mr. Lasker (her host and chaperon),  Gene and Mary Sarazen, Doris Kenyon, Mrs. Milton Sills, Victor Moore, Billy Gaxton, Chris Holmes ("Fleischman's Yeast people") General Moses "head of the whole army-Honolulu") President Quezon, Boyden Sparks (Sparkes) who was writing a biography of Mr Lasker, whom I believe was Walter D Lasker,  and others too numerous to mention.

For someone who has sworn off of buying any more books this purchase shows I have no self control.  As can be seen in the scan the book is in very poor condition.  Although the pages are still bound together the boards have come loose.  Most of the problems can be seen in the scans but you can count on others. The biggest problem is that the title page is missing and of course the preceding blank pages.This may have been edited by Goodspeed but I'm not sure of that.  I don't  know if any of the illustrations are missing as presumably the table of contents and such is also missing  The book begins with Chapter 1. Think of this as a reference and reading copy.  I believe the spine could be re-stained to look nicer in your library.  I'll pay the postage.

There are three books in this lot.  The first is a modern book by Evan Thomas.  The title is John Paul Jones-Sailor, Hero, and Father of the American Navy printed in 1903.  Minor wear.  The second book is John Paul Jones-Commemoration which was made at Annapolis on April 24, 1906.  The third book is "A Calendar on John Paul Jones Manuscripts which are the the Library of Congress.  This is also a first edition.  Both of these books have numerous condition problems, too numerous to list.  These books will be useful to the serious researcher not to display in a book case.  Both are priced much lower than the reprints as well as few original ones available on the web.
These books were obtained from a family estate in Nashville Tennessee whose family members believed themselves to be related to Jones.  Will be shipped by media mail for the actual cost.
