London Thomas Nelson & Sons 1926 1 Flexible cloth Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Black leatherette with gilt border and gilt spine with title and author. Richard Doddridge Blackmore (7 June 1825 20 January 1900), known as R. D. Blackmore, was one of the most famous English novelists of the second half of the nineteenth century. He won acclaim for vivid descriptions and personification of the countryside, sharing with Thomas Hardy a Western England background and a strong sense of regional setting in his works. Blackmore, often referred to as the "Last Victorian", was a pioneer of the movement in fiction that continued with Robert Louis Stevenson and others. He has been described as "proud, shy, reticent, strong-willed, sweet-tempered, and self-centred." Apart from his novel Lorna Doone, which has enjoyed continuing popularity, his work has gone out of print. .

Wallis and Edward: Letters, 1931-1937: the Intimate Correspondence of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Bloch, Michael (Ed)
12 Bloch, Michael (Ed) Wallis and Edward: Letters, 1931-1937: the Intimate Correspondence of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor
NY Summit Books 1986 0671612093 / 9780671612092 First Printing Hard Cover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING. Hardcover with unclipped ($19.95) dust jacket. 8vo (6.5 x 9.5). 367 pp. Quarter bound in publisher's Royal Blue cloth over cream boards, gilt lettering on spine. Endpapers decorated with photographs of letters. Illustrated with 32 pages of B&W photographs. This book offers a glimpse inside the romance of Edward VII, the Duke of Windsor, and his beloved American paramour, Wallis Simpson. At the heart of this volume are the extraordinary letters exchanged by the lovers themselves, from their improbable first meeting in 1931 - Wallis socially obscure, Edward then Prince of Wales - till the moment they married at the Chateau de Cande in 1937. Perhaps the most romantic documents of our time, they chart the course of Edward's overwhelming passion for Wallis. Not only do these letters provide a fascinating account of Wallis's developing relationship with the man born to be King, but they also provide a striking view of life in London between the wars. The letters are most revealing, and created quite a sensation when they were published in 1986; disclosing, as they do, previously unknown aspects of Edward's character. . The volume is in excellent condition, unmarked, tight, square and clean. Remainder mark on bottom edge. Unclipped dust jacket shows only mild wear. NEAR FINE/VERY GOOD+. . Photographs. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 367 pp
