2 Acosta, Delphin. Images of America: Tampa's Hyde Park.
Charleston, SC: Arcadia Publishing, 2012. 
Octavo, paperbound (slilck, sepia tone photograph illustrated wrappers), 127 pp. Fine (As New). From lower cover: Tampa's Hyde Park was a beautifully located frontier that was not discovered until the latter part of the 19th century. Scattered tiny settlements were farmed and fished along Hillsborough Bay. The fine climate and natural resources lingered until Henry B. Plant arrived with his railroad and steamship line in 1884. Then, like magic, Hyde Park exploded into a visionary community. O. H. Platt created Hyde Park's original subdivision, and Plant opened a fanciful jewel of America's Gilded Age, the Tampa Bay Hotel. In less than 10 years, the backwater that was located along the western edge of Hillsborough Bay became Florida's first magic kingdom. As the Victorian period ended and the 20th century emerged, Hyde Park embraced the aesthetics and cultural changes of the new century. Bungalows dominated new housing in Hyde Park, providing architectural modernism for the emerging middle class. Today, Hyde Park has among the largest intact collections of Craftsman and Prairie houses in the United States. Delphin Acosta is an architectural historian who has been involved in the recognition and historic preservation of Hyde Park. Ann Altman, book editor and project coordinator, also lives in Hyde Park...

5 Alden, Chevy. Black Falcon.
Pembroke Pines, Florida: Tri-Pacer Press, 1996. 
Signed & inscribed by the Author. Octavo, slick black boards (hardcover), 257 pp. Fine (As New), in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. From jacket: Black Falcon is a violent flashback to a time when South Florida's nighttime sky was a shadowy palce to be..the early 1980s...the boom years for aerial marijuana smuggling. Drugs were cool...sex was loose...life was easy. Instant wealth was offered to any pilot willing to risk his life flying tramp airfreighters down to Colombia and back. One of those outlaw airmen was Rob Jensen, a physically strong, but emotionally unstable doper pilot who decided to quit the drug trade at the wrong time. With nobody to turn to for help, he entered into a desperate struggle for survival against his distraught emotions, nature's elements and the deadly world of drug running. Follow along as this fast-paced adventure novel takes you from a sleezy Miami bar to a salty Key West tavern, from the cockpit of a drug plane to a clandestine airfield in the mountains of Colombia, from a tropical bahamian cruise aboard a private sailboat to a climactic action-packed ending on Ft. Lauderdale's Venice-like canal system.

9 Algeo, John; Editor. Thomas Pyles: Selected Essays on English Usage.
Gainesville: University Presses of Florida, 1979. First Edition. 
Octavo, blue cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, xiv + 223 pp. Fine (As New) in a Very Good dust jacket with light edgewear. From dust jacket: The twenty-one essays by Thomas Pyles in this collection bear witness to the vitality of the English language and to its integrity in the midst of great variety in use. Published over a 34-year period by this distinguished scholar of English language study and usage, many of these writings are otherwise not readily available. The selections are presented here for the benefit of laymen as well as students of the language in honor of their author, a master of English prose style, who, by his example, has set and continues to set a standard in matter and manner to which all linguistics should aspire. The essays are grouped under five topical headings: the pronunciation of Latin in England and America; currently fashionable forms of expression; unwitting indecorum in the use of taboo words; curiosities in the bestowal of names and titles; and popular versus scholarly views of language usage and change. Although diverse in subject matter, the essays present a consistent view of English usage and of the attitudes that English language set forth with the precision, craft, and style that Thomas Pyles's students and colleagues look forward to in all his work.

His was the only colony ever attempted which was organized and fully backed by a major government. The things that occured, and the representations of the characters, require little enlargement. Perhaps, once De Luna has been ciculated, the nation's colonial begginings will be rewritten and the studies of our children altered.

In other words if a place is nice we try to say so and if it is less than nice we will try to warn the traveler. We tell it like it is. The book is divided into chapters according to highways. Each chapter will follow a highway north to south or west to east; the entries are in geographical sequence...

18 Ayers, E. C. Eye of the Gator. [A Tony Lowell Mystery].
New York: St. Martin's Press, (1995). First Edition. 
Signed by the Author. Octavo, black boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 294 pp. Fine (As New) in a Fine (As New), mylar protected dust jacket. E. C. Ayers's first mystery, Hour of the Manatee, won the PWA/St. Martin's Press Best First Private Eye Novel Contest. Published to great acclaim, it introduced laid-back photographer/PI Tony Lowell and his friend and occaasional adversary, by-the-book police detective Lena Bedrosian. In Ayers's sophomore effort, serious short-staffing prompts Bedrosian to enlist Lowell's help on a murder case. Lowell doesn't hesitate to join the fray, for the victim was the nephew of Ernie Larson, one of Lowell's oldest friends. A recent college graduate and environmental activist working for the government, Timothy Cross was found in an alligator pond with a bullet in his head. As Lowell begins investigating, his array of suspects includes a baseball fanatic, a single mother, and her dangerously violent boyfriend. Soon he finds himself pitted against powerful industry types, as well as black advocacy groups concerned about jobs and backwoods racists who resent meddlers. The stakes are raised even further, however, when he discovers that the very safety of Florida's diminishing water supply is at stake. Lowell is determined to find the killer, but he's got to save his own skin while he's at it.

19 Ayers, E. C. Lair of the Lizard.
New York: St. Martin's Press, (1998). First Edition. 
Signed by the Author. Octavo, black boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 248 pp. Fine (As New), in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. From dust jacket: Hour of the Manatee won the St. Martin's Press/Private Eye WRiters of America award, and his subsequent P.I. novels, all with environmental undertone, have garnered nothing but high marks from readers. In the fourth outing for Ayers's Florida P.I., Tony Lowell, the detective travels west to answer an urgent plea from his daughter, Ariel. A good friend of Ariel's, a Hispanic woman from Santa Fe, has disappeared and all indications point to foul play. Tony reluctantly agrees to go to Santa Fe to track down the missing woman. Assisted by his old acquaintance P.I., Joshua Croft and, at Ariel's insistence, a New Age mystic, Lowell soon finds himself in over his head in a situation involving deeply divided cultures, traditions, and a general western mistrust of outsiders...

Charleston, SC: Arcadia Publishing, (2005). 
Octavo, softbound (slick, sepia-tone photo. illus. wrappers), 128 pp. Fine. From lower cover: Florida in the late 1800s was a paradise waiting to be discovered. During this period, two visionary tycoons of the Gilded Age set out on separate ventures that would transform the Sunshine State from the America's last frontier into a destination for the rich and famous. The grand hotels that Henry M. Flagler and Henry B. Plant opened at their planned resort sites offered a fantasy stay surrounded by all the accoutrements expected by sophisticated, Gilded Age patrons. Florida's Grand Hotels from the Gilded Age provides a look at these magnificent structures during their glory years, along with the fashionable entertainment and social and recreational pastimes that engaged their gilded guests.
