Quarto, (hardcover), red cloth, gilt letters, glossy full-color illus. pages, 224 pp. Fine, in like dust jacket. ‘Using contemporary illustrations and descriptions, material from trade catalogues, design manuals and essays on taste, this book highlights a diversity of styles. Victorian Interior Style provides both a chronological survey of the important events and personalities involved in the history of nineteenth-century design and a social and economic context for the different types of furnishings and decorations that emerged. Revivalist and traditional styles are examined as closely as the more innovative teendencies and, where possible, attention is focused upon the circumstances in which all of them were employed. Most importantly, the authors examine the reasons for the popularity -- or lack of it -- of these different styles, providing an insight into why many are still fashionable today.' Contents: The Victorian Revival; Victorian Values; The Battle of the Styles; The Reformed Home; Morris & Co.; The Aesthetic Movement; Palaces of Art; Cottage Style; New Art; Revivalism Revisited; Bibliography; Selected Bibliographies; Index.

187 Banks, Richard. The Mysterious Leaf. Illustrated by Irene Haas.
New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1954. First Edition. 
Square octavo, blue cloth with stamped illustration of leaves to upper cover, [52] pp. Very Good, with sunned spine and edgewear. Illustrations throughout. From story: This is what happened in Sparkling... Sparkling is a little town at the edge of the great prairies. It has a park or two, churches, stores and filling stations, and a gathering of neat little houses. Nearly every street is bewhiskered by white picket fences, and each trim, green yard overflows with flowers and shrubs. Years ago the Chamber of Commerce put of signs on all roads leading into the village, saying, “Sparkling / The Town of Flowers.” People say that for its size Sparkling has more beautiful flowers than any other town in the nation. Every years, from early spring until late fall, the town is a mass of color from blooms of all shapes, hues and sizes. And of a cool summer night the air smells so good a perfume counter is tame beside it. Then there is the college. In a cozy cluster of ivy-clad buildings hundreds of students from everywhere gather each fall. It is small as colleges go, perhaps, but it more than makes up for its lack of size by the high place it holds among colleges far and wide. The college was the reason the three learned men lived on Hay Street in the town of Sparkling. Thier names were Dr. Whowhere, Dr. Thisthat and Mr. Whichwat, and they were professors at the college. They gave lectures, greaded papers, taught lessons -- three old bachelors, a little musty in speech and action; apt, at times, to be frosty with a student who didn't have his lesson....

200 Barefoot, Daniel W. General Robert F. Hoke: Lee's Modest Warrior.
Winston-Salem, North Carolina: John F. Blair, Publisher, (1996). First Edition. 
Signed and inscribed by the author. Octavo, cloth & boards (hardcover), xvii + 452 pp. Fine, in a Fine, mylar protected dust jacket. From dust jacket: Neglected by modern historians, Robert F. Hoke was a towering figure in his time. Mustered into Confederate service as a second lieutenant in April 1861, he was a major within five months, a lieutenant colonel within nine months, a colonel within sixteen months, a brigadier general within two years, and a major general within three years -- becoming, at age twenty-six, the youngest Southern officer of that rank in the Civil War. Of the 125,000 men his state contributed to the Confederate cause, it was Hoke who was called “the North Carolina Lee” and “the most distinguished solider of North Carolina.” In a face-to-face meeting after the war, U. S. Grant admired that Hoke had administed “the worst drubbing I ever got,” at Cold Harbor. He fought in nearly every significant battle in the Eastern theater - Gaines' Mill, Malvern Hill, Second Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Plymouth, Petersburg, Richmond, Cold Harbor, Fort Fisher, Bentonville. He witnessed the first Confederate casualty at Bethel and provided the rear guard as Joseph E. Johnston met Sherman at Bennett Farm to arrange the last surrender. Back home, Hoke hitched his war-horse to a plow and quietly set about rebuildilng the South, a cause that later inspired him to leadership positions in industry. A private man, he declined every honor offered him by North Carolinaians, including the governorship...
