A Greater look at Greater Buffalo, Jim Bisco.
2 A Greater look at Greater Buffalo Jim Bisco.
Windsor Publications. 1986 First Edition. Hard Cover Near Fine. Very Good Signed by Author
A great lump of a book - slightly larger than A4, weighing 2320g. Presentation inscription signed by the author on front endpaper, otherwise unmarked. Book is virtually unworn, DJ has a 1" tear at top of rear flap fore-edge. 16 chapters, bibliography, index, over 400 colour photographs. A brief history of the city from its origins as a Seneca trading post, it's growth, followed by its decline in the early 70s. The balance of the book details its renaissance from then until the present time. I spent some time in Buffalo in the mid 70s and can confirm that wandering the streets in the usual carefree European manner was a risky business only attempted once!

American Industrial Problems., W R Lawson.
11 American Industrial Problems. W R Lawson.
William Blackwood and Sons. 1903 First Edition. Hardcover Good No Jacket 
A 394 page (plus 32 page catalogue) hardback book. Number stamped in Gold on spine, label been removed from front cover and another from inside same, so clearly ex-library of some kind, though probably not a public library. Light shelfwear, page edges dusty, good sound hinges. Occasional marginal pencilmark, easily erased if so desired, otherwise unmarked. Thirty chapters, a few tables, no index. ** An oddly mistitled book, the problem was not American, rather European - this book discusses the rapidly growing industrial strength of the United States, and the challenge it presented to the established European economic superiority. Written in a quite interesting way and is a very readable work. Change the title to "Chinese Industrial Problems" and we almost have today's scenario!
