Mary Polk Branch-A Genealogical Record and Annals Of My Past
Item #: NEW-0016220

Click image to enlarge
This is an extremely rare little book.  I have looked on line over the years and have never found another example.   Mary Polk Branch was born into a very famous Tennessee family as was her husband into a famous North Carolina family. William Polk. Mary's father, had several famous brothers including General Lucius Polk,and General Leonidas Polk. Two famous homes, still existing, are associated with the family-"Rattle and Snap" won by Mrs. Branch's Grandfather in a game of chance and "Hamilton Place", built by her Grandfather. Mrs. Polk wrote another memoir, titled MEMOIRS OF A SOUTHERN WOMAN "WITHIN THE LINES" which is also scarce, though has been reprinted.

This is a thin book with only 24 pages.  There is Genealogical Record of the Polk Family with some pencil markings by Gerald Branch. She gives a history of her family and tells of family events as well as  her husband's participation in supporting the Confederacy.  Her husband was Joseph Branch was the brother of General Lawrence Branch who was killed during the war.  The book was published in 1905 by her husband.  The book's cover is grimy and the back cover appears to have some moisture damage at the top.

Memoir Hugh Lawson White-Ed Nancy N Scott-1856
Item #: NEW-0015824

Click image to enlarge
This book is listed in Howes, which gives it a ranking of importance. However, is not in demand, which is just as well as you can't find it anyway.   That is to say it is rare.  Pencil markings by a previous owner who writes that he bought it at auction on Dec. first Monday in 1892. Other random pencil writings.  Fairly large water stain which begins opposite Hugh White's engraved portrait which runs through six pages.  Later the stain becomes faint and blends in with the toning on the pages.  The toning is strong on some pages, moderate on others and light on others. The binding is tight with some wear to the spine, including a small area where the board has eroded.  Someone took shoe polish to the covers, maybe me.  I bought this book a long time ago.  Here is the information found about the book on the web. http://bioguide.congress.gov/scripts/biodisplay.pl?index=W000376

History of Tennessee-and Tennesseans- Hale-Merritt
Item #: NEW-0011515

Click image to enlarge
This is an eight volume set that was published in 1913.  I sort of hate to offer it as it has information on Tennesseans that cannot be found anywhere else.  There are beautiful illustrations of some of the people featured.  Some are photographs and other beautiful engravings, most covering the whole page.  The first few volumes covers the history of Tennessee and the remaining volumes have the sketches of prominent Tennesseans of the day, most now forgotten.  One volume is quite faded and evidently was purchased to complete a set.  It is pretty uncommon to find a complete set. I'm not going to cover the condition as this is a reference set.  The covers vary in the degree of mottling which is the most prominent condition problem. Ignore the shipping expense on the invoice as I will adjust it to the actual charges.

The Savage-Piomingo-Muscogulee Nation-1833
Item #: NEW-0010815

This book appears in Ronald Allen's important reference, "Some Tennessee Rarities".  The book was written by Piomingo and is titled The Savage. A Headman and Warrior of the Muscogulee Nation" It was printed in Knoxville Tennessee, Republished at the "Scrap Book" office, 1833. According to Allen "Piomingo was the pseudonym used by John Robinson, and the indication "Republished" on the title page refers to the original Philadelphia edition of 1810". There were subsequent printings but "the Tennessee printing is of interest as it represents one of the earliest significant literary works printed in Tennessee...Copies are seldom offered for sale."

The scans tell the story of the condition of the book .  The boards are completely split on the back board and about a third of the way on the front board.  It is still intact but hanging by a thread.  Rest of the binding is tight.   Moderate foxing on the pages. End paper missing on the back.

This information was provided to me in that my earlier information was not accurate.  The title page is quite deceiving as it gives the publishing date as 1876.  In reading the introduction the original book was written in 1876 and filed with the Tennessee Historical Society.  It was lost for decades, then found by the editor of The Pulaski Citizen and published in book form for the first time in 1928.  It has since be reprinted in other formats.  

 Tight binding and clean interior and end papers.  Scattered tiny white spots of paint thanks to my last painters.  Scan does not look like the book.  I wanted to show the white spots.  The book is very dark brown with gold gilt title.
