Bugyrus, OH: Gould and Starr, 1873. Hardcover. A Scarce Atlas of Crawford County, Ohio. Disbound, with original black cloth boards present but detached. The front board is titled in gilt and is heavily worn along the edges with chips to cloth and soiling. The rear board is also well worn. All maps are present; however, the large fold out map of Ohio, which is printed on a thinner stock paper, is badly damaged, creased, and torn with a portion missing. This atlas includes population statistics for the U.S. and for each town (in Ohio only) for 1860 and 1870; a brief history of the county and townships; a list of patrons of the atlas (listed by township); advertising directories divided by region; 24 color maps of towns, townships, the county, and state; and many attractive black and white views of landmarks, farms, private homes, and businesses within the county. Soiling and tears to most pages, mostly along the edges and margins; however, some pages are evenly soiled. Most tears are short, but some extend several inches into the page, affecting images and/or maps. There is a large, attractive, handwritten inscription in German to the front endpapers from the previous owners: "Johann D. De Roche! Margaret De Roche! Wilhelm H. De Roche! Geboren 15 januar 1856! An gottes legen alt alles gelegen Amen! 1878!" John D. DeRoche is listed as a patron of this atlas from the Chatfield township. This is a good reading copy perfect for a historian, scholar, or resident of Crawford, Ohio. Size: Elephant Folio. ATL/111819. Good.

Tempe, AZ: Pyracantha Press, 2014. Number 12 of 100 copies. Signed and numbered by the author. This is perhaps a unique presentation of the results of a sociological survey. The work presents the results of a study conducted in Phoenix to examine the causes and effects of urban sprawl in one of the most sprawling metropolitan areas in the country. The author and several Arizona State University students interviewed 101 residents of the city about their individual choices as they relate to suburban sprawl. The survey and its results are presented in five small volumes lettered A through E produced by the university's Pyracantha Press. Volume E describes the study's hypotheses, how it was conducted, and the conclusions that the researchers drew from their work. The four other volumes each contains a Turkish fold map that shows one of the areas of the city they surveyed with quotes from respondents about their choices on where to live. The book was conceived in collaboration with the Pyracantha Press. It is digitally printed on Mohawk Superfine paper in Stymie typeface. With brown paper board covers and grey paper backing. The five volumes are housed in a grey slipcase with title to front cover. In fine condition. Measures 6 x 6 inches in box. ARTISTB/012720. Fine.
