I hope you enjoy getting a closer look at some of these books. A few of them are very unique. I can’t find anything about Nature’s Secrets when I search for it. If you know any info, let me know?! I believe it was originally published in 1920, it’s almost 100 years old!

Views:724|Rating:4.23|View Time:57:55Minutes|Likes:11|Dislikes:2 Folger was an avid collector of Shakespeareana, assembling the world’s largest collection of First Folio editions of Shakespeare’s plays. The first rare book Folger acquired was a 1685 copy of the Fourth Folio, purchased in 1889 for $107.50. He purchased his first original copy of the First Folio four years later, in 1893. Unlike other wealthy collectors of the period, like Henry E. Huntington and J.P. Morgan, Folger favored “imperfect” copies of rare volumes, with their marginalia and other markings. Following this trend, his Folio collection was marked with diversity in provenance and condition. He preferred to purchase Early Editions of books published between 1567 and 1606, in addition to manuscripts of the period. Based on their collective knowledge of Latin and French, and Emily’s proficiency in German, the couple also favored rare volumes published on the Continent in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The couple was less interested in art collection, and many of the Shakespeare-related paintings they purchased were misattributed to artists like Thomas Gainsborough.
The Folgers chose items to purchase from booksellers’ catalogues, which were initially perused and marked up by Emily, before she passed them on to Henry, who kept an extensive and precise list of items he intended to bid on. If possible, he inspected an item personally before purchasing it. He also avoided consulting scholarly experts about rare volumes, preferring his own and Emily’s expertise, as she received an M.A. from Vassar College in 1896 for a thesis on Shakespeare. Folger used professional booksellers as middlemen at auctions, believing that the concealment of his identity would keep prices low. Few of the Folgers’ acquisitions were stored in their living space. Emily entered purchases into an extensive card catalog housed in a Brookyln Standard Oil warehouse, which also stored rare books in ten-gallon oil cases. The most valuable items were kept in bank vaults.
Folger financed a half-century of collecting with his Standard Oil salary and extensive investments in the company. His high placement at Standard Oil also allowed him to take out loans with his friend Charles Millard Pratt, John D. Rockefeller, and even his wife, to fund his purchases. He generally paid for items in cash, a strategy that earned him the favor of many booksellers who needed immediate funds. Folger also preferred to purchase whole collections, like the Halliwell-Phillipps collection, acquired in 1908, because bulk purchases drove down prices of individual items.
In 1909, Folger established a Shakespeare Prize at Amherst; winning students won a cash prize, and their essays joined Folger’s collection and currently reside in the Folger Shakespeare Library. Folger also made donations to Amherst College’s library, contributing many duplicate volumes purchased at auction to the College. The most valuable of these donations were two leaves from a Gutenberg Bible.
Early in his career at Standard Oil and as a collector, Folger doubted that he would eventually have the funds to build a memorial or library for his growing collection, and in 1895 he offered to sell it to John D. Rockefeller, who refused. Before he acquired the funds for what was to become the Folger Shakespeare Library, Folger also debated selling the collection to a university.
Toward the end of World War I, Folger and his wife began searching for a location for his Shakespeare library. Among the sites he and Emily considered were Amherst and Nantucket, Massachusetts, the University of Chicago, New York City, and Stratford-upon-Avon, before they settled on a Washington, D.C. site they discovered in 1918 during a layover in the city while traveling to Hot Springs. Folger spent nine years purchasing the fourteen row houses that occupied the block of East Capitol Street between First and Second Streets, which he would demolish to build his Library; thus, they did not make their choice of a site on Capitol Hill public until 1928. Soon afterwards, Congress passed a resolution allowing use of the land on East Capitol Street where the Folger Shakespeare Library now stands.

On Wednesday, Jon Speed, owner of the Jon Speed: The Book Scout in Syracuse, closed the doors of his business for one day in protest of a law that pro-abortion liberals literally celebrated. Speed says that while he’s been vocal in the past about pro-life issues, even producing a pro-life documentary, this is the first time he’s taken a public stand like this. He told The Western Journal that after the legislation was passed and signed, he was so “distraught” that he had a hard time sleeping. The legislation that was signed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, known as the Reproductive Health Act, not only legalizes late-term abortions but allows non-doctors to perform abortions, according to Syracuse.com. Additionally, the legislation was passed and signed into law on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that created a constitutional right to an abortion. “It was definitely intentional,” he said. “Cuomo has not been shy about slapping conservatives around New York state. Speed said that what is happening in New York in regards to the legislation is what could happen across the United States if Roe v. Wade is overturned.

Views:205|Rating:5.00|View Time:40:5Minutes|Likes:29|Dislikes:0 The National Emergency Act passed by Congress and signed into law by President Gerald Ford on September 14th 1976 was touted as “legislation to limit open-ended declarations of national emergency.”
But in 1977, a provision of that act, “the Declaration of National Economic Emergency” was brought into question. It became obvious to Congress that the “trading with the enemy” provision had become a cart blanch Presidential Power, removed from the reality of whether the “enemy” was indeed the enemy or not, whether any threat existed or not. The enemy was the enemy simply because the President “declared it so” by his word alone. It simply required a “Declaration of Economic Emergency” by the president.
Some sounded the alarm in Congress:
The National Emergency Act “has become essentially an unlimited grant of authority for the President to exercise, at his discretion, broad powers in both the domestic and international economic arena, without congressional review. These powers may be exercised so long as there is an unterminated declaration of national emergency on the books, whether or not the situation with respect to which the emergency was declared bears any relationship to the situation with respect to which the President is using the authorities” H. Rep. No. 95-459, at 7 (1977)

Gull wings, smart eco-cars that know your name, and classic motor cars.
That covers just some of the engine-revving vehicles drawing glances at the 97th edition of the annual Brussels Motor Show.
Tesla “Model X”‘s striking gull wings are drawing the attentions of visitors at this year’s Brussels Motor Show.
But it’s Tesla’s eco-credentials that echo the trending topics at the event – car sharing and electric vehicles.
The Smart Vision EQ fortwo vehicle by Mercedes-Benz is a small, driverless electric two-seater.
It boasts features, such as a display with personalized messages and doors that close remotely using a smartphone.
The autonomous car is designed to be hailed in cities, the way people currently call a taxi.
Joost Kaesemans is the communication director for the Belgium and Luxembourg Car and Motorcycle Federation (FEBIAC), which organizes the event.
“We want to incite people to ‘Have a look at your mobility, change your mobility,'” he says.
“It’s not only about cars, it’s about different modes of transport that will serve you very well as mobility needs are not always the same, inside the cities, outside the cities. We have to talk about the future and shared cars are one of the aspects of our automotive future.”
Kaesemans says the Belgian car market has been strong in recent years.
But with the United Kingdom now set to leave the European Union on 29 March, predictions for the future are uncertain, he adds.
“Well, it’s hard to tell whether Brexit will have a great influence, an important influence on car markets,” he says.
“I think it might affect the industry, the car-making industry, but on car sales, I don’t think it will have an immediate impact on the sales numbers we achieve.”
Aspirational cars have their own dedicated section, aptly named “Dream Cars.”
It features cars made by Ferrari, Jaguar and Rolls-Royce.
The star of the show is this classic vehicle, a blue Invicta S33 with a low chassis.
FEBIAC spokesman Christophe Dubon says the coveted section is a new addition for the 2019 edition of the show.
“For the first time, we have an entire pavilion dedicated to Dream Cars for the whole duration of the exhibit,” he says.
“In the previous years, we only had it for the last four days. This is the first time we showcase this to our public a full Dream Cars section for the entire duration of the show.”
Vans and light trucks also feature prominently at the Brussels Motor Show.
Sales of commercial vehicles are booming thanks to delivery vans needed for online purchases, explains Dubon.
“Over the past years, the vans and light-vehicles sector’s performance has been very good,” he says.
“This market sector has been growing in the last five years. It’s really an expanding sector and this is very easy to explain because thanks to e-commerce there’s a growing need for small delivery vehicles fueled by the need for individual deliveries.”
The exhibit features several pavilions dedicated to two-wheeled models, from sport motorcycles to the latest Vespa models.
Organizers say they’re expecting to attract about 400,000 visitors from all over Belgium.
According to Brussels Motor Show statistics, between 4 and 5 percent of the entire Belgian population have visited previous editions.
The event runs till 27 January at the Brussels Expo Center.
