Fashion In The Time Of Jane Austen By: Sarah Jane Downing
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. The broader Regency period 1795 to 1820, stands alone as an incredible moment in fashion history, unlike anything that went before it. For the first time England became a fashion influence, especially for menswear, and became the toast of Paris, as court dress became secondary to the season-by-season flux of fashion as we know it today. Sarah Jane Downing explores the fashion revolution and the innovation that inspired a flood of fashions taking influence from far afield. It was an era of contradiction immortalised by Jane Austen, who adeptly used the new-found diversity of fashion to enliven her characters: Wickham's military splendour; Mr Darcy's understated elegance; and Miss Tilney's romantic fixation with white muslin.

The Best Flea, Antique, Vintage And New-style Markets In America By: Pamela Keech
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Among the countless flea markets in America, there are those that deserve to be called legendary. Scattered around the country, these are the markets with hundreds--sometimes thousands--of dealers and whose spectacular settings, covetable offerings, and colorful histories make each an unforgettable experience and a unique adventure. Pamela Keech--a museum curator who shops professionally at flea markets--profiles her top twenty choices, the flea markets that can be counted on to surprise and delight at every turn. Tackling these mammoth events, however, is not for the faint of heart. For starters, the size and scope of each market can be overwhelming--no, are overwhelming. They cover acres and acres and miles and miles. (To give you an idea of their scope, there is one that stretches from Maryland to Missouri and another from Michigan to Alabama.) The Best Flea, Antique, Vintage, and New-Style Markets in America is an essential guide for shoppers who want to get the most out of each venue. All the practical details are covered: how far ahead of time to make reservations, how to avoid wasting precious time in traffic jams, how to navigate the miles of aisles, how to determine the best paths through the markets, how much territory can be covered in a day, how to find out where the must-see dealers set up their tables, what to take to be comfortable, and more. Other essential information includes smart negotiating, shipping options, and--because the thrill of the chase can be utterly exhausting--great local places to eat and where to find a soft bed at the end of the day. One of the many charms of the book is its focus on regional style. Each of the markets profiled has an unmistakable sense of place, evident in the merchandise that fills the booths. Canton, Texas started 150 years ago as a trading market for cattle and livestock; this is where you'll find vintage cowboy boots, railroad and ranch memorabilia, and primitives. At the Rose Bowl Flea Market, the proximity to Hollywood casts a sparkle over everything; don't be surprised to find yourself browsing elbow to elbow with movie stars at tables filled with memorabilia from the silver screen and glamorous costume jewelry. At Shipshewana, in the heartland of the Indiana Amish, you'll find more than the usual number of pie safes, kitchen implements, and quilts. Keech highlights these differences with bits of cultural and decorative history and lots and lots of photographs that will make even armchair travelers feel like part of the action.
Genealogy At A Glance: Court Records By: Wendy Bebout Elliot
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Court records are invaluable in genealogical research, but they are decentralized and difficult to locate. Probate records, as one example, are located in over 3,000 separate county courthouses. They are among the most important records for genealogical research because they identify names, dates, residences, and family relationships, yet there is considerable difficulty in finding them and exploiting their contents. The American court system is complicated, and the challenge for genealogists is to understand the court system in order to locate the relevant records. You could make a lifetime's study of the American court system, but if your goal is family history research, this Genealogy at a Glance outline will provide an indispensable shortcut, guiding you through the major types of court records that are crucial in your research--probate records, for example, naturalization records, land records, marriage and divorce records, tax records--in short almost every type of record that helps to identify family relationships. The main thing you will learn is that county courthouses generally contain the records of most interest to genealogists, and therefore this guide offers invaluable tips for finding and accessing records at the county courthouse level. Like all Genealogy at a Glance outlines, this one also offers guidance on the principal supplementary record sources, provides a list of the best online resources, and identifies the major repositories, all the while dealing with a complex subject in the simplest way possible.

Thumbeline By: Hans Christian Anderson, Katherine Atkins
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Thumbeline, a wonder-filled tale told by Hans Christian Andersen, is the inner story of one who feels quite vulnerable in the midst of a dangerous world but who still remains sensitive and caring. It is that care which brings her reward and happiness. It is her greatest power. And so this is a fairy tale whose message is one of salvation and deliverance. It is a story of hope despite desperate times and harsh circumstances. It is a story of overcoming difficult times. Thus it is a story for us to tell those whom we wish to have hope and whom we would have remain as tender as the lily and as pure as the driven snow. Tales as these form paradigms in our minds and hearts when we are young and vulnerable. They are a resource to be recalled, if subconsciously, as we mature and find ourselves feeling small and vulnerable in difficult situations and circumstances.

Plymouth New Hampshire Families By: Ezra S. Stearns
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Plymouth, New Hampshire, whose nickname is The Gateway to the White Mountains, was founded in 1763. In 1895, local citizens commissioned historian Ezra Stearns to write a history of the town and its families. This association resulted in the publication, in 1906, of a two-volume history of Plymouth. Volume I of the work is a historical narrative of Plymouth, and Volume II, reprinted here without its companion volume, is a self-contained collection of roughly 1,500 genealogical sketches of Plymouth families, many of which extend backwards to the the very beginnings of the town nearly 250 years ago. Based on extensive research into the town records and more than 2,000 pieces of correspondence with his contemporaries, Plymouth, New Hampshire Families contains references to more than 5,000 persons, as found in the complete name index at the back of the book. The sketches, which are detailed or sparse by degrees, commence with the oldest known member of the family and extend to the turn of the twentieth century, fleshing out the genealogy with biographical information--career, education, military service--whenever it is available. While it is not possible in the space allowed to list the surname of every family covered here, what follows is a list of several hundred families receiving the most extensive coverage: Abbot, Adams, Aldrich, Allen, Ames, Andrews, Atwood, Avery, Ayer, Babb, Bacon, Bailey, Baker, Baldwin, Ball, Barnard, Barnes, Bartlett, Batchelder, Bean, Bennett, Bickford, Blake, Blanchard, Bliss, Blood, Boardman, Boynton, Bradley, Brooks, Brown, Bryant, Burnham, Buzzell, Carr, Carter, Chamberlain, Chandler, Chapman, Chase, Cheney, Church, Cilley, Clark, Clement, Clifford, Clough, Coffin, Colby, Collins, Cook, Copp, Corliss, Corser, Cox, Craig, Crockett, Crosby, Cross, Cummings, Currier, Darling, Davis, Day, Dean, Dearborn, Dodge, Dole, Dolloff, Dow, Drew, Durgin, Eastman, Eaton, Elliot, Emerson, Emery, Emmons, Evans, Farnum, Farwell, Fellows, Fifield, Fisher, Flanders, Fletcher, Flint, Fogg, Ford, Foss, Foster, Fowler, Freeman, French, Fuller, Gage, Gale, Garland, George, Gilman, Glover, Goodhur, Goodrich, Gordon, Gould, Gove, Graham, Grant, Gray, Greeley, Green, Hadley, Haines, Hall, Hardy, Harris, Hart, Harvey, Haseltine, Hastings, Heath, Herbert, Herrick, Hill, Holmes, Holt, Homans, Hoyt, Hunt, Huntington, Huse, Hutchins, Ingalls, Jewett, Johnson, Jones, Kelley, Kendall, Keyes, Kidder, Kimball, King, Knight, Knowles, Ladd, Lane, Lawrence, Leavitt, Lewis, Libbey, Little, Locke, Lougee, Lovejoy, Lovering, March, Marsh, Marshall, Marston, Martin, Mason, Matthews, McClure, Meloon, Merrill, Milk, Mitchell, Moore, Morrill, Morrison, Morse, Moses, Moulton, Mudgett, Mulliken, Muzzey, Nason, Nelson, Nichols, Norris, Noyes, Nutting, Ordway, Osgood, Packard, Page, Paige, Paine, Palmer, Parker, Payne, Peabody, Pearson, Peaslee, Perkins, Permoit, Perry, Phelps, Philrick, Phillips, Pierce, Pike, Pillsbury, Pingrey, Piper, Plummer, Pollard, Poor, Pope, Porter, Powers, Prescott, Preston, Quimby, Randall, Reed, Richardson, Richmond, Roberts, Robie, Robinson, Rogers, Rollins, Rowe, Rowell, Russell, Rust, Sanborn, Sargent, Savage, Sawyer, Scott, Scribner, Senter, Shaw, Shepard, Shute, Simonds, Sleeper, Small, Smart, Smith, Spalding, Stanton, Steele, Stetson, Stevens, Stinson, Strong, Swain, Swett, Taylor, Tewksbury, Thomas, Thompson, Tilton, Townsend, Tucker, Tufts, Turner, Underwood, Wadleigh, Walker, Wallace, Walton, Ward, Warner, Warren, Washburn, Watson, Webber, Webster, Weeks, Wells, Wentworth, West, Wheat, Wheeler, Wheet, Whipple, Whitcher, White, White, Whitney, Willard, Willey, Williams, Willoughby, Wilson, Winegar, Wise, Wood, Woodbury, Woodman, Woodward, Woodworth, Worthen, Wright, Wyatt, Wyman, Yeaton, and Young.

Galle Lamps By: Alastair Duncan, Georges De Bartha
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. A comprehensive survey of the glass lamps designed by a towering figure of the Art Nouveau era Although renowned for his work as a verrier, lamps did not form a significant part of Galle's repertoire in glass until immediately prior to 1900. Indeed, only in the last few years of his life does it appear that he realised the full aesthetic potential of opalescent glass viewed by transmitted light. In an Art Nouveau context, Galle's creations reached their apogee between 1900 and his death in 1904, a brief period during which he adapted the shape of much of his glassware to its theme. Vases decorated with lilies became lily-shaped in a marriage of form and function. Fully-ripened gourds pendent on their vines glowed from within at the touch of a switch. Mushroom lamps brought the concept to full embodiment in the metamorphosis of the giant fungi into light fixtures. This comprehensive volume catalogues the full range of light fixtures produced by the Galle cristallerie, from those made during his lifetime to those manufactured for more than twenty-five years after his death. Including table, bedside, hanging and wall models, Galle Lamps reveals the extraordinary variety of thematic shade-and-base combinations introduced by the firm: butterflies, moths, dragonflies, swallows and eagles hover, flutter, glide or swoop over flora and mountain vistas in a seemingly endless interplay of Nature's decorative motifs.

Kitchen Things: Vintage Utensils And Farm-kitchen Recipes By: Richard Snodgrass
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Many home cooks--and professionals, as well--swear by the tried-and-true implements they've used for years: the Foley Food Mill that works like a charm every time; the manually operated juicer that's a tradition of family breakfasts; the cast iron skillet that's been handed down through the generations. For serious cooks, there's nothing like a familiar implement, a thing that works exactly as you expect it to. Similarly, most people usually have a library of favorite recipes on which they rely: some passed along from relatives and friends, others from mentors and teachers. These are the recipes cooks return to time and time again, in part because they evoke memories of the people who have enjoyed them and prepared them in the past. Kitchen Things, by master photographer and respected novelist Richard Snodgrass, celebrates these well-loved objects and recipes and showcases them in an unexpected way--a way that touches upon the science of food, the physics of cooking, the sensory pleasures of eating, and indeed the very nature of life itself. In his reflections, the author is aided by his patient, persistent, and very perceptive wife, Marty, and her mother, from whose Western Pennsylvania farmhouse kitchens the objects and recipes were sourced. The gentle, often humorous repartee between the author and these wise and knowing women forms a running narrative throughout the book.

Middle Tennessee's Forgotten Children: Apprentices From 1784 To 1902 By: Alan N. Miller
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. The institution of apprenticeship was a common means of providing for the maintenance and future self-reliance of orphaned children as well as for any children whose parents had abandoned them or otherwise refused to support them. Apprenticeship records are ordinarily buried among volumes of original county court minute books. They are nonetheless valuable to genealogists because they establish the existence of young people who might otherwise go undetected in the more conventional genealogical sources. Just as he did for the twenty-nine counties of East Tennessee and nineteen counties of West Tennessee, Dr. Alan Miller has sifted through the apprenticeship records of Middle Tennessee and brought them within the reach of the genealogy researcher. This second volume of Tennessee's forgotten children contains some 7,000 apprenticeship records scattered among the minutes of the county courts for Middle Tennessee. These records span the period from 1784 to 1902 and list in tabular form the apprenticeships created in the following 35 Tennessee counties: Bedford, Cannon, Cheatham, Clay, Coffee, Davidson, DeKalb, Dickson, Franklin, Giles, Grundy, Hickman, Houston, Humphreys, Jackson, Lawrence, Lewis, Lincoln, Marshall, Maury, Montgomery, Moore, Overton, Perry, Robertson, Rutherford, Smith, Stewart, Sumner, Van Buren, Warren, Wayne, White, Williamson, and Wilson. Dr. Miller extracted this volume from county court minutes on microfilm obtained from the Tennessee State Archives, the Dallas Public Library, and the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. He has arranged the records by county and thereunder chronologically. For each record we are given the name of the apprentice, a date (either the date of the original bond or indenture, or a subsequent date), the age at apprenticeship, the name of the master, and miscellaneous information ranging from the name of the mother or a sibling, race, cause of apprenticeship (e.g., orphan), his/her trade, etc.

Genealogy At A Glance: Civil War Genealogy Research By: Nancy Hendrickson
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Over 3 million men took part in the Civil War. In addition to combat and personnel records, they left behind a vast body of records that can be mined for such information as dates and places of birth, names of family members, and places of interment. The key to these records is knowing what they are and where they can be found. The best thing you can do is to consult this Genealogy at a Glance research guide, which promises easy access to an enormous trove of data. First we are shown how to determine if an ancestor participated in the war. From there we are introduced to the vast possibilities of such records as Compiled Military Service Records (enlistment papers, muster rolls, etc.), pension records, regimental rosters, and veterans' census schedules, with dates of enlistment and discharge, rank, and names of survivors. As the major record groups are described, one after the other, so too are the most helpful websites and associated archives. The focus then shifts to complementary resources, which include archival collections, books for further research, and a comprehensive list of online Civil War resources. In line with the now familiar Genealogy at a Glance format, the four specially laminated pages of this work are designed to give you as much useful information in the space allotted as you'll ever need. Focusing on key record sources and materials for further reference, Civil War Genealogy Research allows you to grasp the fundamentals of research at a glance, placing you in control of this vast subject in just a few moments of your time.
Genealogy At A Glance: Finding Female Ancestors By: Sharon Debartolo Carmack
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Throughout history women have been silent partners. As a rule, they left behind few records of themselves because they had few legal rights. When they married, they generally gave up their maiden name, which faded from the records; they couldn't own land in their own name and sometimes couldn't even leave wills. They have come to be known as the hidden half of the family, and they are notoriously difficult to research. But with some basic instructions and a few well-placed suggestions offered in this Genealogy at a Glance research guide, Sharon Carmack shows you how to get around these obstacles and create a complete family history. Since female research is expected to be difficult, it is often ignored, leaving researchers to work mostly on easier male lines. This need not be the case, suggests Carmack, who says we just need to work smarter rather than harder in pursuing female ancestors. The key to finding female ancestors, in her view, centers around finding maiden names in every possible type of record, from the obvious to the obscure, including records created about and for women, such as divorce petitions, widows' pensions, and dower releases. While these records may not lead to maiden names, you can still identify women in a host of records that someone else created or named them in. In its now familiar format, this Genealogy at a Glance guide is designed to cover a large amount of ground in just a few keystrokes, hitting all the right notes in as short a period of time as possible. Thus, in a four-page laminated folder, it focuses on the special aspects of female research and provides a reading list and a list of online sources to carry you further in your research. If you want to explore this hidden subject quickly and efficiently, you'll find this guide to be indispensable.
Genealogy At A Glance: Old Southwest Genealogy Research By: Dorothy Williams Potter
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. With records so sparse and far-flung, Old Southwest genealogy is the ideal subject for a research guide that can cover the basic elements of genealogical research in just four pages, giving you as much useful information in the space allotted as you'll ever need. To begin with, the Old Southwest covered a vast territory, and genealogical research within its bounds requires knowledge of its history and geography. Under territorial status, the Old Southwest consisted of territory east of the Mississippi, including Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and parts of Louisiana and Florida. Much of this area encompassed lands of the Creek, Cherokee, Choctaw, and Chickasaw Indians. Settlers arriving from the original Colonies were required to obtain passports for passage through Indian country, and after the Revolutionary War, settlers holding land were required to file proof of ownership. Thus an entire body of records grew up in the pre-statehood period, and this guide starts at the very beginning with a look at the earliest migratory paths and main travel routes through the Old Southwest. In order to locate travelers or settlers on this fast-changing frontier prior to 1820, researchers are told about the major document collections containing public land records and passport and travel documents, compiled at a time when the usual county court records or census records did not exist. Typical records might include names of residents, taxpayers, express riders, petitioners, and Indian interpreters. In keeping with the Genealogy at a Glance series, this research guide also contains a helpful list of books and articles for further reference, a list of major area libraries, and a list of online sources. In its entirety, it is a four-page distillation of the key ingredients of Old Southwest research, which can be read at a glance and used with total confidence.
Genealogy At A Glance: Cherokee Genealogy Research By: Myra Vanderpool Gormley
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Designed to cover the basic elements of research in just four pages, Myra Gormley's Cherokee Genealogy Research attempts to give you as much useful information in the space allotted as you'll ever need. In less than a handful of pages, it provides an overview of the facts you need to know in order to begin and proceed successfully with your research: it covers Cherokee history, surnames, migrations, and basic genealogical resources, describing original documents as well as the latest online resources. The largest Native-American tribe, the Cherokees are associated primarily with the state of Oklahoma, which was formed in 1907 by a merger of Indian Territory and Oklahoma Territory, though smaller groups of Cherokees are found in North Carolina and elsewhere. Not all groups are federally recognized, and while a great many Americans claim some degree of Cherokee blood, there are only three Cherokee groups that have official status: The Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, The United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians, and The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (North Carolina). The most useful records in Cherokee research are membership rolls, which were designed to allocate reservation lands, provide annuities, and pay compensation. Not all Cherokees are named in these rolls, because certain individuals did not meet the specific requirements for enrollment, but starting with the 1817 Reservation Roll, membership rolls are the best documentary sources available, and this handy research guide identifies the twenty most important rolls, including the 1835 Henderson Roll (called the Trail of Tears Roll), the 1848 Mullay Roll, which was the first census of the Eastern Band of Cherokees, the 1852 Drennen Roll, which was the first census of Cherokees living in northeastern Oklahoma, and the 1898-1906 Dawes Roll, which established official tribal enrollment of the Cherokees, Choctaws, Chickasaws, Creeks, and Seminoles. Like all publications in the Genealogy at a Glance series, Cherokee Genealogy Research provides all the instruction you need to get you started in your research, including research tips, references to key publications, and an indispensable list of online resources.
Genealogy At A Glance: Family History Library Research By: Carolyn L. Barkley
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. The Family History Library of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints contains the world's largest collection of genealogical materials, and it is a natural magnet for researchers the world over. The library's print and electronic collections are renowned for their breadth and are so vast they require the pinpoint guidance that only a Genealogy at a Glance research guide can provide. Here are just a few statistics to illustrate the scope of this extraordinary library: The Family History Library collection includes over 2.4 million rolls of microfilm and 727,000 microfiche, 356,000 books and serials, over 4,500 periodicals, and 3,725 databases. Records have been filmed in over 110 countries, territories, and possessions. Researchers in the library have access to 475 computers, 408 microfilm readers, 36 microfiche readers, and 27 microform copiers. The library has enough tables to accommodate 375 researchers. Service is provided by 100 full-time and part-time professional staff, supported by 700 trained volunteers. The library is located in a 142,000 square-foot building in Salt Lake City, and anyone tracing his or her ancestors will want to make use of the collections, which fall into four broad categories: (1) those dealing with the U.S. at the state or county level; (2) those dealing with the U.S. at the national or regional level; (3) international records; and (4) family histories. One of the main purposes of this Genealogy at a Glance publication is to assist you with strategies for researching in any of the major collections, strategies that you'll find not only helpful but indispensable. At the same time, however, you'll learn not to leave home before checking online, since you can access the library's circulating collection of over 2.4 million microfilms at any of the 4,500 FamilySearch Centers located in over 100 countries. Like other publications in the Genealogy at a Glance series, this one takes a large subject and narrows it down to its essential elements, covering the basics of research in an amazing four pages. But this piece is just a little different; besides pointing out the best and most helpful websites, listing the most useful books and articles, and providing tips for further research, it also tells you how to prepare for a research trip to Salt Lake City and suggests things to do in the city when you take a break from your research. It even offers suggestions for dining and accommodation!
Genealogy At A Glance: Pennsylvania Genealogy Research By: John T. Humphrey
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Written by veteran genealogist John Humphrey, this Genealogy at a Glance publication provides an overview of topics that are essential to Pennsylvania genealogy, from settlement background and record sources to Internet sites and libraries. In just four pages of text--specially laminated for heavy use--Mr. Humphrey manages to encapsulate 300 years of Pennsylvania genealogy by striking all the right notes, building on his formidable experience as an expert on family history in the Keystone State. This is no small feat since there are several things about Pennsylvania genealogy that are radically different from other states. First, with respect to religion and ethnicity, Pennsylvania was the most diverse colony in British North America; second, in 1790 it was the most populous state in the country; and third, it was the second most populous state in the United States for more than a century--all of which bring an unexpected level of difficulty to the task. But this is the very thing the Genealogy at a Glance series was designed for--to bring a large subject down to size, distilling key ingredients so the subject can be understood at a glance; in effect, boiling it down to its essence to make it manageable. Essentially, Genealogy at a Glance provides all the basic instruction you need, focusing on key record sources and materials for further reference and finishing with a summing up of the best record repositories and websites. For Pennsylvania genealogy, in particular, these may be the best four pages you'll ever use.

North American Railroad Family Trees By: Brian Solomon
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. The history of railroading in North America is as much a story of boardroom intrigue as it is a story of the brute force that stamped thousands of miles of train track across a rugged continent. Today's nine U.S. and Canadian Class I railroads are the result of well over a century of convoluted bankruptcies, mergers, acquisitions, and expansions. North American Railroad Family Trees marks the first time in book form that this major aspect of railroad history has been presented in a clear, graphic format, helping the railfan make sense of the many smaller train lines that shaped North American rail as it is today. In these pages, renowned rail author Brian Solomon takes a visual and chronological approach, presenting 50 family trees in the style of human lineages. The story begins with the railroads of the Golden Age (1890-1930), continuing through the second wave of consolidations between the World Wars, the merger mania of the 1950s through the 1970s, the creation of major passenger networks, and the megamergers of the last three decades that have left railroading close to its current incarnation. Solomon even offers a selection of maps tracing the evolution of the North American rail system and diagrams proposing what-if scenarios for the industry's future. Including chapter-by-chapter narrative overviews of key eras, along with a selection of rare photography and period advertising to lend historical context, North American Railroad Family Trees provides an unprecedented retrospective of the continent's iconic rail network.

Fender's Stratocaster is arguably the number-one instrument icon of the guitar world. When introduced in 1954, its offset space-age lines, contoured body, and three-pickup configuration set the music world on its ear--it was truly unlike any guitar that had come before. In the hands of the world's most beloved players, the Stratocaster has since become a popular weapon of choice among rock, blues, jazz, and country players and, not coincidentally, is also one of the most copied electric guitars of all time. In this authoritatively written, painstakingly curated, and gloriously presented tribute to the 60-year-old Fender Stratocaster, author Dave Hunter covers the guitar's history from concept, design, and model launch through its numerous variations and right up to the present. The story is illustrated with archival images of Stratocasters and their players in action, studio shots of Stratocasters of varied vintage and provenance, memorabilia associated with famous players, and profiles of over 30 noted Strat slingers through the ages. Influential rock'n' rollers like Buddy Holly, Hank Marvin, Ike Turner, and Dick Dale; blues players like Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Cray, Bonnie Raitt, and John Mayer; metal gods Richie Blackmore, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Dave Murray; esteemed rockers Jeff Beck, David Gilmour, Ronnie Wood, Robbie Robertson, Rory Gallagher, Mark Knopfler, and Wayne Kramer; and post-punk heroes The Edge, John Frusciante, and Billy Corgan are all included. And so, of course, is Jimi Hendrix. With its unprecedented level of detail and stunning visuals, The Fender Stratocaster is the only book tribute worthy of the world's greatest guitar.

The Art Of Metal: Five Decades Of Heavy Metal Album Covers, Posters, T-shirts And More
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Since the late 1960s, the imagery of the heavy metal genre has been closely connected with the music itself. Classic albums evoke memories of famous cover artwork; metal bands have become forever synonymous with their iconic logos; and landmark live shows have led to instantly recognizable gig posters that embody the time, place, and passion of the events. It's even possible to trace the genre's evolution by examining a continuum of its art. In The Art of Metal, renowned music journalist Malcolm Dome offers a beautifully presented chronological collection of the colorful, outlandish, and sophisticated album covers, posters, T-shirts, and more that span decades of heavy metal music. More than 400 gorgeously reproduced works of art are complemented by in-depth features, including quotes from the graphic artists and musicians responsible for them. Dome also spotlights the metal genre's most influential artists and photographers and delves into other topics that include metal merch, magazines, fashion, and tattoos. In the process, The Art of Metal illustrates and explores the close-knit relationship between those timeless riffs that thunder from Marshall stacks and the images that have come to represent the songs, anthems, and sheer nature of headbanger culture--a must for any true thrasher's bookshelf.

Alternative Movie Posters: Film Art From The Underground By: Matthew Chojnacki
Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Over the years the motion picture industry has (sadly) gravitated to generating poorly cropped and heavily airbrushed posters that rely far too often on celebrity head shots. Thankfully, an underground network of graphic designers and artists has reinvigorated the art of the movie poster, crafting stunning pieces for classic and cult films. Here is the first comprehensive look at the movement, presenting this eclectic and dynamic medium through more than 200 eye-popping posters from over 100 cutting-edge artists, coupled with fascinating commentary and behind-the-scenes information. These new, underground posters have quickly become the most coveted by ardent moviegoers; they are typically produced in very limited runs, sell out within minutes, and command upwards of several hundred dollars each. With a smart, fresh visual perspective, alternative movie posters celebrate classics like Star Wars, A Clockwork Orange, and The Shining as well as cult favorites: The Big Lebowski, Blade Runner, and Pink Flamingos. 200 illustrations
