5 Royall, Mary-Julia C. Images of America: Mount Pleasant, the Victorian Village.
Charleston, SC: Arcadia Publishing, (2005). 
Octavo, softbound (stiff, slick, photo. illus. wrappers), 128 pp. Fine. 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...

7 Teal, Harvey S. Partners with the Sun: South Carolina Photographers, 1840 - 1940.
University of South Carolina Press for the South Carolina Library with the Assistance of The Caroline McKissick Dial Publication Fund and the University Caroliniana Society, (2001). First Edition. 
Large octavo, black cloth (hardcover), 415 pp. Fine in a Fine dust jacket. From dust jacket: Partners with the Sun recounts the history of the men and women who captured a century of South Carolina images, from photography's introduction in the state through 1940. Beginning with William H. Ellet, a South Carolina College professor who was the first in the state to experiment with the new technology, Harvey S. Teal records carefully researched biographical information about six hundred professional photographers who worked throughout South Carolina. He showcases their work with more than three hundred examples of daguerroetypes, ambrotypes, tintypes, cartes de visite, cabinets, stereographs, panoramas, and other types of photographs. While the images provide a one-hundred-year pictorial panorama of South Carolina, the biographical entries rescue from obscurity the men and women who made a business of recording the state's landscapes, streetscapes, architecutre, people, social life, and economic endeavors. Dividing the century into historical periods, Teal groups the photographers by the towns in which they operated studios. Additionally, he profiles amateur photogaphers who particpated in significant projects, such as those who produced the more than three thousand photographs taken of the Penn School on St. Helena Island in Beaufort County. In response to the increasing interest in female photographers, African American photographers, photography as a business, and the production of picture postcards, sterographs, and panoramas, Teal devotes a chapter to each of these topics. He highlights local and national events of the century and chronicles advances in photographic technology, to place the photographers in their historical context. More than half the images reproduced in the book are published here for the first time. Most of the others have not appeared in print since the beginning of the twentieth century. Numerous photographers' logos and back marks in the book provide valuable information for dating and attributing photographers.

8 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.
