262 Goza, William M. A Guide-Book of Florida and the South, a Facsimile Reproduction of the 1869 Edition with an Introduction and Indexes by William M. Goza.
Gainesville: The University Presses of Florida, A University of Florida Book, 1978. 
Small octavo, white leatherette (hardcover), lviii + 136 pp + 31 pp. Fold-out map. From Preface: This unpretending little book is designed to give the visitor to Florida such information as will make his trip more useful and more pleasant. In writing it I have had in mind the excellent European Guide-Books of Karl Baedeker, the best, to my mind, ever published. Though I have not followed his plan very closely, I have done so to the extent the character of our country seems to allow. I have borrowed from him the use of the asterik (*) to denote that the object so dsignated is especially noteworthy, or that the hotel thus disitnguished is known to me to be well-kept, either from my own observation or that of friends. Most of the localities are described from my own notes taken during an extended tour through the peninsula, but for much resepcting railroad fare, accommodations, and charges, I am indebted to a large number of tourists and correspondents who have related to me thier experience. To all these I express my warmest thanks for their assistance.

270 Haase, Ronald W. Classic Cracker: Florida's Wood-Frame Vernacular Architecture.
Sarasota, Florida: Pineapple Press, (1992). 
Royal octavo, softbound (slick, stiff, full-color photo. illus. green wrappers), 112 pp. Fine. From lower cover: Nothing hand-built so distinguishes the old interior country settings of Cracker Florida as the wood-frame vernacular house. And no architectural historian has captured its essence more sensitively and comprehensively than Ronald W. Haas has done in this wonderful book...Classic Cracker is a passionate and at times poetic plea for us to open our eyes and to see the scattered vestiges of the simple, dignified, and profoundly intelligent buildings of North Florida's early settlers. The straightforward narrative is both a clear explanation of historical development of these types over time and an evocation of the life and times and character of the people who settled Florida and built these houses.

274 Hanna, A. J. The Union Catalog of Floridiana.
Reprinted from Special Libraries, (New York), XXXII, 160-162, 179 (May-June, 1941). 
Octavo, paperbound (stapled printed self wrappers), 3 pp. Near-Fine. Its steady growth and the increasing demand for its use since its establishment four years ago at Rollins College, Winter Park, Florida, as a cooperative project, furnish convincing evidence that the Union Catalog of Floridiana is rendering a definitive and deeply needed service in an extensive and virtually unexplored field. The purpose of the Catalog is two-fold: (1) to answer the question, What is there on Florida, by listing materials relating to that subject and thus provide a comprehensive index; and (2) to answer the question Where can it be located?, by indicating on cards where information can be found...

275 Hannau, H. W. Florida: A Photographic Journey by H. W. Hannau.
New York: Hastings House Publishers, (1948). 
Royal octavo, brown cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, map illus. endpapers, 117 pp. Near-Fine, with light sunning to edges; in a Poor dust jacket with edgewear that includes large chips. From dust jacket: ...Here is an attempt to picture Florida as it really is -- to catch the mood and the atmosphere of places off the beaten path: the wide plains and swamps, the lush and tropic vegetation, some historic points of interest, the Negroes in the fields, the Indians in their villages, and of course, some resorts, gardens, and beaches. This photographic journey explores the State from Jacksonville south to Miami and over the Ocean Highways to Key West, the Southernmost point in the United States. It then proceeds back to the mainland through the Everglades and up the Gulf Coast to Tampa, Tallahassee, and Pensacola, always with side trips into the interior. it is no small undertaking to present Florida in a limited number of pictures. How can one portray with one hundred and thirty-eight photographs the uncounted splendors of the State? But H. W. Hannau, born in Vienna, who has long made his home in Florida, has succeeded admirably in this selection from the thousands of photographs he has taken in the State over a period of years.

279 Harrison, Benjamin. Acres of Ashes: The Story of the Great Fire That Swept over the City of Jacksonville, Florida, on the Afternoon of Friday, May 3, 1901, Resulting in the Loss of Seven Lives, Destroying of $15,000,000 in Property, Total Insurance Less Than $5,000,000.
Jacksonville, FL: James A. Holloman, East Florida Printing Company, 1901. 
Octavo, paperbound, fold-out b&w photo. panarama of city after fire, unpaginated. Illustrated with maps. From Foreword: The fuller relation of the history of the Jacksonville fire is a duty our city owes to itself as well as to those who visited her in want. It is fitting that the details of the picture be filled in lest some fail to realize the depths out of which a cry for help was forced from our lips -- it is required that we render an accounting by showing that good use was made of the supplies heaped in overflowing measure in answer to that call. This little book seeks but to do this -- it but tells how the loss befell us, how bitter was our need, how generous was the response from the whole people and how fully the wishes of the donors were made a law to those clothed with the responsibility of the distribution...
