162 Archibald, Fred. Rube Allyn's Good Camping in Florida. Fourteenth Edition, 1973. Approved by Great Outdoors Association.
St. Petersburg, Florida: Great Outdoors Publishing Co., 1973. 
Octavo, softbound (stiff, full-color photo. illus. red & white wrappers), 152 pp. Fine (As New). From Foreword: The prime objective of this book is to put before the travelling camper a concise guide to campgrounds, attractions and other points of interest. Great Outdoors is in no way connected to any campground or attraction. We feel that by presenting the facts in a straightforward and honest manner we can help make your camping vacation easier and more enjoyable. In other words if a place is nice we try to say so and if it is less than nice we will try to warn the traveler. We tell it like it is. The book is divided into chapters according to highways. Each chapter will follow a highway north to south or west to east; the entries are in geographical sequence...

164 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 ÒPitchfork BenÓ Tillman of South Carolina, ÒFiddlin' BobÓ 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.

165 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.

He makes a merry shambles of the consulting rooms of all the great physicians of history, and shakes the labs with laughter. Incorporating all he has learned from the reading of heavy medical histories, Richard Armour has given us a light book, a bright book...
