161 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.

165 Dunn, Hampton. Yesterday's Tampa. Seemann's Historic Cities Series No. 1.
Miami, Florida: E. A. Seeman Publishing, Inc., (1975). 
Royal octavo, orange leatherette (hardcover), gilt letters, map illustrated endpapers, [160] pp. Near-Fine, in a Very Good, mylar protected dust jacket with light edgewear. Review and publisher's release laid-in. From dust jacket: Tampa -- lively town on Florida's West Coast -- started as a military post in 1824 and quickly became an important port city. It is known to everybody as the place where cigars are made, where Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders took off for Cuba, where the weatlhy of the turn-of-the-century sunned themselves in winter, where a bustling port provides a link to foreign countries, where fishing fleets return home to, where industry and commerce live in harmony with tourism. Yesterday's Tampa is a brilliant photographic record of the recent past, spanning the period from approximately 1898 to 1950, as seen through the eyes and lenses of the Burgert Brothers who lived and worked during several decades of Tampa's rapid growth. It is fortunate that the firm of Burgert Bros. was aware of the importance of these photographs and carefully preserved not only prints but thousands of negatives. Hampton Dunn, well-known lecturer, author, and Tampa newspaper editor, selected from some 65,000 negatives the pictures that tell the story of the city. Having lived the story of Tampa during three and a half decades as a reporter and editor, he is uniquely able to produce this historical record, not noly through the pictures, but also through an accompanying text which is a capsule history of the city itself. He has augmented the record with a few additional historical photographs from his own collection.

Among numerous subjects key to the city's past are an early Mirror Lake, the Detroit Hotell, the Million Dollar Pier, the Snell Arcade, shuffleboard courts, Albert Whitted Airport, the Aquarium, Festival of States parades, the Orange Belt Railway, Roser Park, and of course, the famous green benches.

Historians Mary Louise Ellis and William Warren Rogers and photographic archivst Joan Perry Morris reminds us, “there must be a cognizance and appreciation of our past,” and in Favored Land they have portrayed an area aware of its heritage, alert to the needs of the present, and prepared to meet the challenges of the future.

Octavo, navy blue illus. cloth (hardcover), gilt letters & decorations to upper cover, xiii + 311 pp. Fair+, with tender joints & speckling to covers; light edgewear including fraying to tips. From Preface: The name of Florida is one of the oldest connected with the discovery of America. It appears on the earliest maps known, sometimes as a great island and sometimes as a headland. It was visited and taken possession of for the Spanish crown within twenty years of the first landing of Columbus at San Salvador, and is the oldest settled portion of the United States. As originally designated, it covered all the country from Cape Florida to the Chesapeake and westward to unkonwn limits. Its romantic and eventful history extends over a period of nearly four hundred years, embracing as well expeditions for the discovery of gold and precious stones as for the propagation of the Christian faith among a savage nation, or as a refuge from religious persecution. Occupied by colonies from the European countries at different times, it has been the scene of wars, massacres, and contentions between French, Spanish, English, and Americans, as well as continual conflicts with the savage races which once inhabited it, a remnant of whom still remains within its southern borders...
