Miami, FL: E. A. Seemann Publishing, Inc., (1974). 
Octavo, burgundy cloth (hardcover), 159 pp. Near-Fine, with bumped corners; in a Very Good+ dust jacket with light edgewear. From dustjacket: Come take a trip through Florida with Hampton Dunn -- a trip that will not just take you to the best-known attractions of the Sunshine State, but rather to some out-of-the-way places where interesting and unusual things can be seen. Hampton Dunn tells in seventy-five vignettes that sparkle like a fresh mountain brook not only of places, but also of the people of the state, and he spans the time from the prehistoric mammoth to modern-day Florida. Whether he talks about General Grant's house in Longwood (That Grant didn't build), the pioneer botantist Alvah Chapman of Apalachicola, the fabulous Boca Raton Hotel & Club, Florida's oldest Baptist Missionary Church in Campbellton, Frederick Delius in Florida, Al Capone in Miami Beach, or a host of other subjects, Dunn is always informative and entertaining. Even as an armchair trip, reading Florida Sketches will be purely enjoyable.

148 Dunn, Hampton. Tampa: A Pictorial History.
Virginia Beach, VA: The Donning Company, Publishers, (1985). 
Quarto, brown leatherette (hardcover), gilt letters, photo. illus. endpapers, 224 pp. Fine (As New) in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. From dust jacket: The city of Tampa has a long and colorful history. Ever since the first conquistadore set foot on Florida soil and drove the Indians westward, the area has been under a Hispanic influence which gives a unique quality to its architecture, its food and restaurants, and its cultural events. Other ethnic groups such as Italians and Hebrews have also staked a share in Tampa's luscious climate to blend their heritages with the Hispanic. These various influences come alive in Hampton Dunn's new pictorial history of Tampa which portrays the city as it was and as it is today. It introduces the individuals and groups who helped make it great, as well as the famous individuals that were born there, and it portrays the unnamed throngs. Events come to life, modes of transportation advance, wars are weathered, businesses are born and flourish or die, prices fluctuate, life goes on -- and it is not all fiestas and sunshine. Life is reflected in all its aspects through more than 350 photographs, many taken by the author himself of events in which he played a part...

149 Dunn, Hampton. Wish You Were Here: A Grand Tour of Early Florida via Old Post Cards.
Saint Petersburg: Byron Kennedy and Company, (1981). 
From dust jacket: Florida is Picture Post Card Land today and has been since the earliest years of tourism. What better way to share the joys of sightseeing and new experiences for a traveler than to select and mail back scenery views to the folks back home? Post card manufacture began in the last quarter of the 19th Century, coinciding with the discovery of Florida as a tourist destination. Consequently, the way towns such as Jacksonville, Pensacola, Palatka, Tampa, Orlando and other resorts looked in those early days are well recorded on vintage post cards. In Wish You Were Here, Florida historian Hampton Dunn has put together a fabulous collection of early scenes from every one of the state's 67 counties. The small communities are not overlooked and he has come up with some fantastic views of places like Wauchula , and Lawtey and Enterprise, as well as the better known towns and cities. The author has spelled out details of what the views are about and through this technique has relayed considerable history of the Sunshine State. This fascinating book is a coffee table conversation piece and provides a Post Card Album for every household.

150 Dunn, Hampton. Yesterday's Clearwater.
Miami, FL: E. A. Seemann Publishing, Inc., (1973). 
Royal octavo, brown cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, photo. illus. endpapers, 160 pp. Illustrated. Very Good, with slight dampstaining; in a Good+, mylar protected dust jacket with edgwear that includes light chipping. From dust jacket: Clearwater, the sparkling gem of the Pinellas Peninsula on the West Coast of Florida, was called Clear Water Harbor when it was founded. While a fort was established on its site as early as 1841, during the Indian wars, no real development occurred until 1883 when the railroad came. Since then Clearwater and its adjacent communities have grown and prospered, its economy is booming, and its population expanding rapidly. Yesterday's Clearwater is a fascinating look at the colorful history of that city, of Clearwater Beach, Dunedin, and many other communities in upper Pinellas County. Hampton Dunn has put together a splendid collection of historical photographs which records dramatically the founding, development, and growth of the city that is now the county seat of Pinellas County. A concise, lively narrative as well as the captions to the pictures augment the story that is told by the photographs.
