204 Barker, Ralph. The Schneider Trophy Races.
London: Chatto and Windus, 1971. 
Octavo, turquoise boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 272 pp. Very Good, with a former-owner bookplate; in a mylar protected dust jacket that has been reinforced with tape to its underside and has light edgewear. From dust jacket: The first contest for the Schneider Trophy was no more than a single and apparently minor item in a 14 day hydro-aeroplane meeting at Monaco in April 1913; yet within ten years it had become the most coveted of all air prizes, the greatest international speed race of all time. Dominated at first by France, it was very nearly won outright by Italy -- three wins in five years was what was required -- in the years immediately after the first World War. A flying-boat modified by a young man named R. J. Mitchell saved the trophy at Naples in 1922, but in 1923 the Americans, fielding a well-trained military team and flying the incomparable Curtiss racer, outclassed all their rivals and carried off the trophy. Winning again at Baltimore in 1925, they seemed certain to capture the prize outright. But then came the Italians' greatest moment as the firms of Macci and Fiat achieved the miracle of producing in seven months a new monoplane which defeated the seemingly unbeatable Curtiss bilanes at Hampton Roads, Virginia. A British victory at Venice brought the contest to England in 1929 for the first time for six years, and a thrilling race in which a new Supermarine design was powered for the first time by a Rolls-Royce engine ended in another British victory. The political, technical and economic background to the challenges of the various countries had been a fascinating one throughout, and now the need for economy decided the British Government against further offical participation -- a decision already taken by the United States. How Lady Houston kept Britain's chances alive with a git of 100,00, and how Britain finally secured the trophy, makes a draamtic climax to a unique story of human progress and endeavour.

207 Barnard, Susan Kessler. Buckhead, A Place for All Time: A History of the Community.
Atlanta History Center, (2009). (Revised) Second Edition. 
Octavo, black cloth (hardcover), 316 pp. Fine (As New) in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. From dust jacket: Buckhead: A Place for All Time is a poignant look at a community and its people, enhanced by personal anecdotes, family histories, and photographs. The history begins with the Indians who lived along the Chattahoochee River at PEachtree Creek prior to the arrival of white settlers. During the War of 1812, Federal Soldiers appeared at the Creek Indian village of Standing Peachtree to build a fort and a boat yard. Following the cession of the Creek land to the federal government in 1821, settlers such as the Montgomerys, Howells, Paces, Cheshires, Moores, and Irbys came and established ferries, mills, farms, and taverns. By 1838, the community was known as Buck's Head. The Civil War disrupted Buckhead when it beame a battleground for Nothern and Southern soldiers. At war's end, more people arrived, making the area a residentail community, and a small commercial center. During this period, newly created black neighborhoods took root in Buckhead. In the early 1900s, wealthy families of Atlanta discovered Buckhead and began to build mansions on West Paces Ferry and Peachtree roads. As the population flourished, additional churches, schools and businesses were established...
