165 Arbuthnot, Mary Hill; Flora Stone Mather College, Western Reserve University. Children and Books.
Chicago: Scott, Foresman and Company, 1947. 
Royal octavo, gray cloth (hardcover), brown labels to spine and upper cover, gilt letters, xiv, 626 pp. Very Good, with former-owner information in neat script to ffep., foxing (age darkened spotting). From Preface: Children and Books grew out of the tantalizing questions grown-ups are always asking: What kind of books do children like? How can we get our children to read more and better books? It also grew out of continuous observations of children choosing or rejecting books in their homes, nursery schools, libraries, and classrooms. It grew from watching artist-teachers using books with their pupils in such happy and meaningful ways that the children reached new heights of appreciation and taste. It grew from the eager response of college students to the beauty and fun of children's books. It grew from watching parents share their joy in books with their children, making book lovers of them by sheer contagion. And it grew primarily from liking children and books. Children are forthright creatures and their reactions to books are sometimes disconcerting and often amusing. Perhaps a little of their bounce has crept into this text and some of their enthusiasm for their favorites. If, indeed, enthusiasm seems to be the prevailing tone of the discussions, it is because it seemed best to spend little time analyzing the scores of poor or mediocre books, and to generalize about their sins en masse rather than to wrestle with them individually. So, for the most part, we are considering only those books which children value or might value if they encountered them at the right time...

168 Aresenault, Raymond. The Wild Ass of the Ozarks: Jeff Davis and the Social Bases of Southern Politics.
Philadelphia: Temple University Press, (1984). First Edition. 
Signed and Inscribed by the Author. Octavo, cloth & boards (hardcover), silver letters, 336 pp. Near-Fine, with light foxing (age darkened spotting), in a Good, mylar protected dust jacket with edgewear that includes chipping. From dust jacket: The saga of Jeff Davis is part of a much larger story -- the story of a political tradition that dominated Southern politics for nearly three quarters of a century. Along with “Pitchfork Ben” Tillman of South Carolina, “Fiddlin' Bob” Taylor of Tennessee, Tom Watson of Georgia, and James K. Vardaman of Mississippi, Davis served as a prototype for the Southern demagogue. His remarkable career influenced countless politicians including Huey Long, who was mesmerized by a Davis stump speechin 1911. The Wild Ass of the Ozarks is a biography of Jeff Davis and an analysis of the sources of his support. This is not the Civil War Jeff Davis (though many hillbilly voters thought so, to the candidate's benefit) but the late nineteenth-century, early twentieth-century populist. As attorney general and later as governor of Arkansas, Davis was a fiery trustbuster and all-around hell-raiser. THis is a book about the workings of state politics Southern-style, the power and contraditions of populist oratory, and the demography underlying the colorful politics. Rather than assume that a demagogue like Davis drew his support from the least educated, most rural people in the state, the author has labored hard with quantitative techniques to deduce a more subtle picture of Southern voting and of Southern life. The legendary backwardness of Arkansas and its people conceals significant differences in the political opinions of the residents of differet kinds of small towns and hamlets. Since the book begins during the Reconstruction era, it is also a book about race relations, black and white voting patterns, and racial attitudes.

170 Ariail, Robert. Ariail Attack! More Cartoons by Robert Ariail. With an Introduction by Alex Sanders.
The State, (19992). First Edition. 
Signed by the Author. Oblong octavo, softbound (stiff, blue, illus. wrappers), 159 pp. Near-Fine. From lower cover: Day in, day out, Robert Ariail's cartoons enliven and illuminate the editorial pages of The State with graphic perception and wicked wit. Whether he's drawing a bead on local politicians or training his sights on presidents and politicos afar, his cartoons command attention because his pen is lethal and his aim unerring. These abilities have produced a large following within South Carolina and without, evidenced by his national and regional awards including The Society of Professional Journalists Green Eyeshade Award for best cartoon; The National Headliner Award for consistently outstanding editorial cartoons; and two awards in The Fischetti Editorial Cartoon Competition, which annually selects the ten best cartoonists in the nation. Ariail is a Columbia native and a Distinguished Alumnus of The University of South Carolina. In 1990, Ariail published his first collection of cartoons, Ariail View, which was an instant success selling nearly 5000 copies in three months and remaining Columbia's best seller for many weeks. In his introduction to Ariail Attack, Alex Sanders, Chief Judge of South Carolina's Court of Appeals, says the most threating inkmonger of them all -- particularly if the politician happens to be self-serving, self-important or otherwise overstuffed -- is the political cartoonist... Nobody does it with a sharper eye than Robert Ariail, at least nobody around here. Turn these pages and judge for yourself.

172 Armer, Laura Adams Farthest West. Illustrated by Sidney Armer.
New York: Longmans, Green and Co., 1939. First Edition, stated. 
Royal octavo, green cloth (hardcover), illustrated endpapers, illus. frontis., ix + 190 pp. Very Good, with edgewear that includes light fraying to tips of spine, darkened endpapers, Illustrated. Dedicated to the members of Save-the-Redwoods League -- “that far-seeing group which knows the need of serving the Earth our Mother.” From the story: Pigeon Creek flowed westward toward the sea. Between shadowed banks green with deer ferns and lacy leaves of bleeding heart the mountain-born stream found its way. It ran past a small schoolhouse in a clearing, where stumps of giant redwoods told of a forest hewn down. Westward flowed the stream at the base of grassy hills dotted with Jersey cows, gazing within sight and sound of the ocean. Toward the beach ran Pigeon Creek, making a sudden leap to the sands over a bank smoked with lavender lupines. A Group of children with their teacher followed the stream until it reached the steep cliff. There they paused to gaze at the moving, restless sea. Florence said to Miss Luella: “The ocean looks like a lot of soapsuds ready to be blown into bubbles.” The little girl's blue eyes sparkled like the sea itself. Her yellow curls gleamed golden in the sunshine. “It reminds me of soapsuds, too,” answered the teacher. “The bubbles are full of color on a morning like this. We should have a wonderful time on the beach today. Shall we go?” On they ran, teacher and children glad of the holiday, glad of the March wind and sunlight. At the base of the cliff they again met the stream which hesitated as if awed by the breakers beating against the rocks. Where the cove opened out in sun-warmed stretches of sand, Pigeon Creek moved gently on to mingle its sweet waters with the brine of the Pacific. The children and Miss Luella took off their shoes and stockings and waded in the shallows. Above the noice of the pounding waves rose the sound of their laughter and shouting...
