From lower cover: Mount Pleasant: The Victorian Village is an intimate look at life in the area of the town now known as the historic district, during the slower-paced time before World War II. Called The Village by its citizens, this close-knit community along the edge of Charleston harbor was formed when five small English settlements merged in the nineteenth century to create the town of Mount Pleasant. The small town had its own identity and remained a Victorian village due to its isolation from the outside world except by ferry. Rapid growth and change began with the opening in 1929 of the Grace Memorial Bridge over the Cooper River. The bridge linked cities to the north and south via Highway 40 (now 17), thus opening the door for tourism and commerce while creating local accessibility to Charleston...

Mr. Rutledge has lived most of his life in the strange and beautiful Santee delta of South Carolina. Owner of an enormous two thousand acre tract known as Hampton Plantation, centuries-old home to generations of his family, Mr. Rutledge has spent both his childhood and mature years exploring the strange, wild forest and creek-veined swampland of the delta. And he has come to know this unique land as a sometimes peaceful, sometimes lethal, but always and foreer beckoning friend.

6 Verner, Elizabeth O'Neill. Mellowed by Time: A Charleston Notebook. Illustrated with Pencil Drawings by the Author. Foreword by Louis D. Rubin, Jr. [Signed].
Charleston, South Carolina: Tradd Street Press, 1970. 
Signed by the Author. Royal octavo, hardcover (cloth), gilt decorations, 79 pp. Fine (As New) in a Near-Fine dust jacket with light foxing (age darkened spotting). From dust jacket: Mellowed by Time is the confession of faith of a Charlestonian. Others have wondered what makes Charlestonians so fiercely loyal to their city; Mrs. Verner has the answer. Her credo is expressed in beautifully simple, restrained prose. There is warmth, vitality and deep affection throughout, as well as a hearty and honest zest for living. It is illuminated by a finely balanced humor which can only spring from a poised and integrated mind. Those who know Charleston already will love the city more after having read Mellowed by Time. Those who have never visited Charleston will year to see the city for themselves.
