Royal octavo, red & tan cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, map illus. endpapers, xiii + 359 pp. Fine (As New) in a tape repaired dust jacket with sunning to spine and edges From dust jacket: Local history CAN be fun. Lew Knapp's new look at Stratford's history shows people as they were, with ideals and aspirations, frailties and flaws the same as ours. It is the story of the early planters in search of religious freedom, and of their bound indentured servants; of men in terror of witches, wolves, and Indians, who hang a witch, hunt the wolves, and tell the Indians to come explain why they are afraid of white men but, if they won't, “to compell them to come by violence”; of colonists who fought the French and then the British for liberty, and finally freed their slaves. It traces the evolution of our government -- through William Samuel Johnson, one of thirty-nine who signed the Constitution; David Plant and Pierrepont Edwards, instrumental in creating our state constitution; and Donald Sammis, who led the fight for council-manager town government...

15 Stave, Bruce M. and Michele Palmer. Mills and Meadows: A Pictorial History of Northeast Connecticut. [Signed].
Virginia Beach, Virginia: The Donning Company, (1991). Special Limited Edition. 
Signed by both authors and Andrew Wyeth. Quarto, gray leather, gilt letters, black & white photograph illustrated endpapers, 191 pp. Fine, in a Fine dust jacket. From dust jacket: The mills and meadows that form the landscape of Northeast Connecticut, and impart its special character, are reminders of the industry and agriculture that once dominated the region. This beautiful pictorial history steps back into time, when textile manufacturing and farming flourished along the rivers and rolling hills of Tolland and Windham counties. The full spectrum of life in Northeast Connecticut is presented: its schools and churches, sports and politics, main streets and town greens, trains and trolley cars, and the region's response to disasters and wars. But mainly it is the people who lived and worked here -- Yankees and immigrants alike -- who bring the pages of this community family album to life. Three hundred photographs and pictures span 150 years, and continue the story of Northeast Connecticut up to the present, when a new appreciation for its past is revitalizing Connecticut's “quiet corner.”
