Scarce, Original 1914 “Standard History” of Washington and 3 More D.C.

Lot 774. Scarce, Original 1914 “Standard History” of Washington and 3 More D.C. Books, One from 1892. William Tindall wrote several histories on the development of Washington, D.C. and surrounding areas. His most notable work is the “Standard History of The City of Washington From a Study of the Original Sources.” H. W. Crew & Co. of Knoxville, TN, published this 600-page hardback in1914. Tindall provides extensive details on the District, from early settlements to the early 1900s, including chapters on “Public Buildings and Grounds,” “Art, Literature, Music and the Drama,” “Monuments” and “The Press.” Technically, the book grades fair. The front cover remains attached by the paper on the inside that also forms the flyleaf. The outer part of the spine is missing At the same time, the pages are ex, and firmly attached to one another. Two books by Myrtle Cheney Murdock are also part of this group. A transplant from Oklahoma and Arizona, Murdock loved Washington, D.C., especially its architecture. Her 1952 book “Your Memorials in Washington,” remains one of the best on the subject. The 194-page first edition hardback is near fine with an owner’s bookplate and name inside the front cover. Murdock autographed the flyleaf and dated her signature “November 1952.” The autograph is mint 9 to gem mint 10. Murdock, whose husband was elected to the House of Representatives by Arizona voters, also wrote “Your Uncle Sam in Washington,” 1948 first edition softcover, g+ to vg, better interior. The fourth book is a softcover, “Visitors’ Companion at Our Nation’s Capital – A Complete Guide for Washington and Its Environs” by George G. Evans, 1892 first edition, g covers and vg-ex pages. The publication contains more than 100 illustrations, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, Washington’s Farewell Address, Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and much more. Wonderful collection focusing on Washington history. Minimum Bid $50.
