Howard Daniel has some non-numismatic books available for free to a good home. -Editor
The following books have been pulled from my personal library and need a new home because I no longer need them. I will mail them at no cost to the first person who emails me that they want them. They were bought at Ace Books & Consignments in Culpepper, VA many years ago. They were owned by a young man who went to school in Winchester, VA right after the Civil War. Please email me (Howard A. Daniel III) at HADANIEL3@MSN.COM.
A Treatise on Metallurgy: Comprising Mining, and General and Particular Metallurgical Operations, by Frederick Overman, 5th Edition, and printed by D. Appleton & Co., New York and London, in 1864 with 375 engravings and 723 pages. The book is complete and the pages are in excellent condition but the spine is broken.
Warren's Common School Geography, by D.M. Warren, Last Revised Edition, and printed by H. Cowperthwait & Co., Philadelphia, PA in 1866 with many engravings and maps of the USA and the world. The book is still bound but the spine is missing with the pages in excellent condition.
Mitchell's New Intermediate Geography, A System of Modern Geography for the use of Schools and Academies, by S. Augustus Mitchell, Revised Edition, and printed by E.H. Butler & Co., Philadelphia, PA in 1868 with 23 copper-plate maps of the USA and the world. On the last blank page is a rubbing of an 1853 Half Dime! Still bound and complete with pages in excellent condition.
Mitchell's New School Atlas, by S. Augustus Mitchell, and printed by E.H. Butler & Co., Philadelphia, PA in 1870 with 44 copperplate maps of the USA and the world. Still bound and complete with pages in excellent condition but covers are scuffed.
I wouldn't be surprised if these are snapped up quickly - the maps alone are likely valuable as decorative prints. -Editor
