15 Andersen, U.S. The Smoldering Sea
New York A.A. Wyn 1953 First Edition Hard Cover About Very Good Very Good Octavo -- from 7.75" to 9.75" Tall 
"The wartime adventures of an American liberty ship, her rough and tough crew of merchant seamen, her 'ninety-day-wonder'--and her captain, Ransel, the strange and somber ex-naval officer." In their 'Sea Fiction Guide' Smith and Weller designate this title as one aimed at junior-senior high school readers, but with the dust jacket copy reading, "Here is a powerful story, a new novel of the sea, and of men -- hard, realistic, not for the squeamish, but alive with moments of virile humor. Lovemaking and drinking and carousing ashore in Noumea and Brisbane are as much a part of the story as the brilliantly recounted combat scenes," I'm not entirely sure that the junior-senior classification is accurate, especially for a title from the 1950s (although I have no doubt that 1950s junior-senior readers in Noumea and Brisbane were entirely capable of "lovemaking and drinking and carousing." Quie possibly Smith and Weller actually read the thing, though; the guys who who write dust jacket copy -- not so sure.) Some slant, wear to corners/spine ends, dusty/tanned edges. Price-clipped dj w/moderate edgewear/flaking, light chipping/short tears to spine ends/corners, small chip from bottom edge of rear panel, light smudging.

The Ashanti Campaign of 1900, Armitage, Captain C.H., and Lieutenant-Colonel A.F. Montanaro
18 Armitage, Captain C.H., and Lieutenant-Colonel A.F. Montanaro The Ashanti Campaign of 1900
London Sands & Co. 1901 First Edition Hard Cover Poor No Jacket (as issued) Octavo -- from 7.75" to 9.75" Tall 
In 1900, Sir Frederick M. Hodgson, governor of the Gold Coast, demanded to sit on the Golden Stool, sacred to the Ashanti people of the Akan interior (present-day Ghana). He hadn't a clue how serious his demand would seem to the Ashanti, who immediately prepared for and waged war rather than let the honour of their sacred object be thus demeaned. This is the story of the consequences, by two of the participants. This copy comes with a two-page printed insert from Hodgson to The Right Honourable J. Chamberlain, M.P., reporting details of the death of Captain P.H.A. Leggett, assistant inspector of the Gold Coast Constabulary, during the hostilities, and asking that Chamberlain convey to Leggett's relatives his "profound sympathy and the sympathy of all the European officers who were associated with" Leggett. The insert was once affixed to the top left corners of the front end paper/half-title/frontispiece, but has since come loose. At the top of the half-title is the handwritten inscription, "Mrs. Leggett Ambleside Sidcup/June 1901." This is therefore presumed to be the copy presented to Mrs. Leggett. Red cloth w/gilt lettering to front cover/spine, 278 pages (including appendices, index), illustrated, plan of Kumasi and map illustrating the campaign affixed at rear. All illustrations present, although one is bound in at a different spot than indicated in the list of illustrations. Worn/frayed corners/spine ends, cover wear, gilt faded (severely so to spine), hinges split, front end paper detached, pencil marginalia throughout, shaken signatures, some internal soil/foxing, tape stains, general wear and tear.
