Baby Shoe with Amelia Earhart's Signature (and That of Three Other Aviators)
1935. Leather-bound. This is an actual white leather baby shoe, not a book. SIGNATURES Amelia Earhart Roscoe Turner; Frank Hawks (aka "Meteor Man"); (Later-to-become Admiral) R.E. Byrd (VERY faint, above bottom seam, down and to the left of Earhart's signature) Shoe is nested in a decorative, hinged, wooden box, with what appears to be a moulded (heavy) nickel(?)-plated rectangle affixed to top. Envelope affixed to inside box lid with sundry clippings and a few notes on possible sites for these air shows, which most likely all took place in Arizona. Provenance: Inside is a hand-printed note that reads: "Sheila Jansen, Born 1921. Age between 13 and 16 when [shoe was] signed, [which, given Ms. Earhart's 1937 journey of no return, would "guesstimate" the years of signing somewhere within 1934-1937-ish. We don't know if they were signed at the same airshow (possible, but unlikely).] Liked airplanes so she went to air shows. Became a Rosie The Riveter in WWII. Favorite plane was the GB". Very Good .

ALCOCK, RUTHERFORD (SIR)
The Capital of the Tycoon: A Narrative of a Three Years Residence in Japan    (2 Volume Set)
Harper and Brothers, 1863. FIRST U.S. EDITION. Hardcover. Handsome, dark brown octavos, original tooled cloth with embossed figure of Japanese Dragon on each volume's front board. Striking gilt, almost copper-like lettering to tooled spine. A bit of shelf-rubbing to several corners and to spine caps, more on Vol. II.† All pages, illustrations, & both fold-out maps present in this very tight,†unmarked set. Rear hinge just barely starting, and short (less than†1 in.) closed tear to one of the foldout maps. Sir Rutherford Alcock, "Her Majesty's Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary in Japan" (essentially a Consul-General), was the first British diplomat to live in Japan, serving as special envoy from 1859 to 1861, when Japan was still hostile to outsiders, from the European incursion three centuries previous -- so much so that Alcock's interpreter was killed; Alcock's entire party fought off at least one other serious attack . Among his many experiences as a pioneer in western-eastern relations (where, despite his language and cultural studies, as a westerner he encountered mistrust and even violence) Alcock was the first non-Japanese to ascend Mt. Fuji (1860), was President of the Royal Geographical Society, and a trained physician after whom was even named Alcock's Canal, a bonafide part of the human anatomy. NEAR FINE .

ALGER, HORATIO (JR.)
The Western Boy, or the Road to Success
NEW YORK, G.W. Carleton/Street and Smith, 1878. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Issued in 1878 by Francis S. Street and Francis S. Smith, publishers of the New York Weekly ("The Leading Story and Sketch Paper of The Age"), the decorated boards are of brown cloth with a picture of Tom The Bootblack (the title of one of the reprint versions) on the front. There may have been a green variant. Spine depicts a setting sun, an arrow heading straight - on the vertical - for its target, the words "Illustrated" about three-quarters of the way down the spine, and "The American News Co." at spine's bottom. Corners lightly bumped, and only a very occasional boy-like thumb-smudge or crimped corner to page. Slight spine lean. Chapter headings appear at the top of every page, and on p. 249 what should read "Hugh Betrays His Principal" reads instead "Hugh Aetrays His Principal." Clean, bright copy of one of Alger's scarcest titles, and hardest for collectors to come by. Very Good Minus .
