The single book is Plain Geometry by Claude Irwin Palmer and Daniel Taylor. Copyright is 1915 1st edition, leather bound and it was published by Scott, Foresman & Company in Chicago I believe. There are many copies of this book in paper back because it went on to become part of Harvard's text books. The group of books I got with this one are the Library of Practical Electricity I have the whole collection but one...chapter 6 is missing. Terrell Croft wrote all of them and Palmer collaborated and help edit them. They are all 1st edition with different impressions. I happened to come accross these by chance, they were in a give away box and I looked at them and saw they were 1st edition so I asked if I can take them home.

The Transferware are Turner and son's I believe (I say that because as they are my favorites I can never remember the names) however they are 1891 Brazil and with a tropical print which are different from all the over Transferware I've seen. I'm all about being different and I'd rather not have what everyone else has. Some are very used and other time some pieces have broke but they are a so beautiful to me.
