history, dictionaries, classics (Dubuque)

*1898 6"x9" 60-page booklet: "Camp Life at Chickamauga" (Camp Thomas) published by THE INDIANA WOMAN in Indianapolis, IN. Complete. Full of 4.5" x 7" photos.
*1805 English to French dictionary. Volume 2--complete and in good legible condition. Look up a word in English -> find the French version as of 1805. Pages not numbered. 2.5 inches thick. Bound in black. Corners and back reinforced. From Lancaster Public Library.
*1951 hardcover edition of "Maya the Bee," children's book originally published in German in 1912. About a curious young bee with a good attitude who sets out to learn about the world. Paper book cover is still here, but sad. Pages darkened at edges, but clean and not dog-eared or torn.
*1966 edition of unabridged Random House Dictionary. The sort you usually find only in a library. 2059 pages. Would make a respectable addition to a home-school classroom--charts, keys, and other features useful for teaching looking-up skills and contextual word knowledge (usually by-passed online). Complete, pages all good. Some to-be-expected wear on cover corners.
*1976 edition of "Paul Revere's Three Accounts of his Famous Ride." Published by the Massachusetts Historical Society. All about Paul Revere's actual ride, including photos three different versions of Revere's written account of his ride. Not what we thought. Finishes with Longfellow's poem. Pristine condition. Might make a fun gift for your favorite historian.
*Three individual Longfellow poems, each one printed inside a folded card with illustration on front--"The Village Blacksmith," illustrated by a sketch Longfellow made of the chestnut tree and the shop in 1840; "The Children's Hour," illustrated by a Thomas Buchanan Read painting of Longfellow's three daughters; "From My Armchair," illustrated by a photo of Longfellow's arm-chair (made from the wood of the famous chestnut tree!)
*1990 Life Magazine featuring: "The LIFE 100 Most Important American's of the 20th Century."
In excellent condition, from Jane Adams to Malcolm X.
