121 Deese, A. Wyneele. St. Petersburg, Florida: A Visiual History.
Charleston: History Press, (2006). 
Signed by the Author. Octavo, softbound (slick, stiff, full-color illus. wrappers), 160 pp. New. From lower cover: Known for its pleasant climate and inviting Gulf Coast waters, St. Petersburg, Florida, has always attracted sun-seekers in search of their own piece of paradise. As with many Florida cities nestled next to the Gulf of Mexico, St. Petersburg has experienced growth and change that has left few reminders of the once easygoing lifestyle that defined the city. Featuring a collection of stunning images, this evocative new book harkens back to those enchanting days. As early as 1905, the city of St. Petersburg began creating postcards to attract not only tourists, but also business-minded individuals seeking an opportunity to take part in the area's growth. Depicting beloved beaches and other sources of natural beauty, as well as a number of local businesses, these surviving postcards offer a glimpse of the Sunshine City in a golden age that is often forgotten.

135 Dormer, Elinore M. The Sea Shell Islands: A History of Sanibel and Captiva. Illustrated by Ann Winterbotham.
New York: Vantage Press, (1979). Second Edition. 
Octavo, blue cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, 265 pp. Near-Fine, with lightly sunned edges; in a Good dust jacket with edgewear that includes light chipping. From dust jacket: Juan Ponce de Leon officially discovered the Sea Shell Islands, Sanibel and Captiva, in 1513 when he turned landward on the Gulf Coast of Florida and sailed south as far as some islands that make out to sea. An abundant food supply attracted Indians before the Age of Discovery and their gold, gleaned from shipwrecks, brought the Spanish conquistadores. Slavers, pirates, marauding Seminoles -- all were part of the colorful, often tempestuous, history of these islands, now famous for sea shells. Mrs. Dormer's descriptions are informative and always lively, whether she's discussing and re-creating the accidental discovery of Sanibel and Captiva, making conjectures about a possible earlier visit by Amerigo Vespucci, or delving into the personal histories of some of the first permanent settlers on the two tiny isles. She makes it clear why such personages as Thomas A. Edison, Theodore Roosevelt and Edna St. Vincent Millay were drawn there as well. The present also is very real in The Sea Shell Islands as Islanders fight to keep the charms of another era against the almost insurmountable odds of explosive growth. Yesterday, today, tomorrow. Only those who have not been drawn to a tropic isle -- or have not yearned for one -- can help but be affected by the story to unfold.
