116.DESCRIPTION: The Map Book, edited by Peter Barber, c. 2005, Levenger Press, Walker Publishing Company. Unstated FIRST EDITION, hardcover coffee table book. A historic and lavish atlas, charting the progress of civilization as our knowledge of the world expanded. Simply organized as a progression through time, The Map Book collects some 175 maps that span four millennia - from the famed prehistoric Bedolina (Italy) incision in rock from around 1500 B.C. to the most modern, digitally enhanced rendering. Many of the maps are beautiful works of art in their own right. From Europe to the Americas, Africa to Asia, north to south, there are maps of oceans and continents charted by heroic adventurers sailing into the unknown, as accounts spread of new discoveries, shadowy continents begin to appear n the margins of the world, often labeled 'unknown lands.' Other maps had a more practical use: some demarcated national boundaries or individual plots of land; military plans depicted enemy positions; propaganda treatises showed one country or faction at an advantage over others.

125.DESCRIPTION: Unstated FIRST EDITION, Western Images, Western Landscapes: Travels Along U.S. 89 by Thomas R. and Geraldine R. Vale, The University of Arizona Press, c. 1989. Examines the landscape along Highway 89 from Arizona to Montana, and discusses how the region is changing. The Vales, geographers and authors of U.S. 40 Today, here cover 1500 miles, checking images against reality. Following U.S. Route 89 north, they pass through cities, ghost towns, bombing ranges, parklands; through desert, mountains, plains. While no single image appears dominant, the question of growth vs. preservation is always present. The authors conclude that the greatest threat to the character of the "Interior West" is increased numbers of people (and their encumbrances) rather than resource development. Neither a travel nor a guidebook, this would be useful as either; its forcefully delivered main point is to verify the different ways we value land. New condition hardcover, wrinkled dj.

140.DESCRIPTION: New condition, unstated FIRST EDITION paperback. On the Road Again: Montana's Changing Landscape by William Wyckoff, University of Washington Press, c. 2006. Wyckoff explores Montana's changing physical and cultural landscape by pairing photographs taken by state highway engineers in the 1920s and 1930s with photographs taken at the same sites today. The older photographs, preserved in the archives of the Montana Historical Society, were intended to document the expenditure of federal highway funds. Because it is nearly impossible to photograph a road without also photographing the landscape through which that road passes, these images contain a wealth of information about the state's environment during the early decades of the twentieth century. To highlight landscape changes - and continuities - over more than eighty years, Wyckoff chose fifty-eight documented locations and traveled to each to photograph the exact same view. The pairs of old and new photos and accompanying interpretive essays presented here tell a vivid story of physical, cultural, and economic change.

From its establishment in 1846 until the turn-of-the-century, Fort Benton's primacy in the history of the northern plains is unequaled. Called the "Birthplace of Montana," Fort Benton is the oldest continuously occupied white settlement in Montana. The rich and famous, scoundrels and killers, merchants and gamblers rubbed elbows on Front Street and the levee as they arrived and embarked aboard mackinaws, keelboats and steamboats. Three-fourths of all freight that came into the region was unloaded on Fort Benton's levee and transported to all points of the compass. Until the coming of the railroad, Fort Benton was the "Chicago of the Plains." In 1965 Fort Benton was designated a National Historic Landmark; the Upper Missouri became part of the National Wild and Scenic River System in 1975. The significant role they played in settlement of the American and Canadian West accorded them national and international importance in the history of both nations.

199.DESCRIPTION: Historic Photos of Old California, text and captions by Nancy Hendrickson, c. 2009, Turner Publ. Co. Unstated FIRST EDITION, hardcover edition with dj. The spin and dj are torn on the bottom. The story of California began when a Portuguese captain sailing for Spain found a beautiful natural harbor as he plied his way up the Pacific coast. Little could he have imagined that dropping his anchor in what is now San Diego Bay would be the birth of the Golden State. Ask any Californian and you'll quickly learn that California is like two states in one: In the north are rocky cliffs, rugged beaches, and a heritage that harkens back to gold rush days. In the south is the quintessential "postcard" California of orange trees, warm ocean breezes, and boulevards lined with palm trees. Whichever California you favor, both have a rich heritage based in the cultures of Spain, England, Russia, China, and America. Citizens from all these lands came to California early, and all had a hand in building the nation's most populace state. This is her story.

But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell, by chance, into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. From his fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, Sauron's power spread far and wide. He gathered all the Great Rings to him, but ever he searched far and wide for the One Ring that would complete his dominion.

And while Catlin was clearly influenced by the idea that Indians were Noble Savages (rapidly acquiring the vices of the white man while losing their "savage" virtues), his passion for his work is evidence of a profound respect and affection for his subjects, clearly demonstrated in this magnificent book. 275 illustrations, 150 in color.
