Gordy, Frank  
A Solid Foundation...The Life & Times of Arthur W. Perdue
 Picture
Publisher: Perdue Incorporated, 1976 Salisbury, MD.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good. Hardcover Signed by Arthur W. Perdue 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall INSCRIBED on half-title page: "To / Dick Moore / My editor friend / from / Art Perdue". Preface by Arthur W. Perdue. "During my first interview with Arthur W. Perdue, we reviewed only the highlights of his life, but as I left his office, I realized it would be difficult to adequately describe the attributes of this man known affectionately to so many as simply 'Mr. Arthur'. Months later I concluded that my first impression was still correct. Some people seem to experience two separate ages, one reckoned from their actual birth date and another reflected by their understanding, enthusiasm and outlook. Measured in terms of the latter, Mr. Arthur is young despite his 90 odd years. It seemed to me that the things Mr. Arthur believes in and stands for, coupled with his sincerity and warmth outweighed his many accomplishments, including the founding of a multi-million dollar business, one of the nation's largest and most successfully integrated poultry firms. The traits he had demonstrated throughout his lifetime, such as humility, faith, and self-discipline are difficult to describe fully, but they have been felt by everyone Mr. Arthur has come in contact with. These associates and many friends continue to be beneficiaries. Although he has worked with many types of people in a variety of capacities, both as an employee in his early years and later as an employer of hundreds, most of them look upon him as a co-worker rather than the boss. Perhaps the one word that can best summarize Mr. Arthur's many qualities is 'gentlemanliness, ' the trait which is most constantly demonstrated through is concern for other people. I don't feel that any publication can do justice to this man nor adequately tell what he has meant to so many people; however, this book was written to record at least a portion of not only the Perdue family history, but Mr. Arthur's own life. I feel it clearly shows that Arthur William Perdue built his business with his heart as well as his head..a solid foundation." Illustrated. x + 123 pages. This is a TALL hardcover (see photo). Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; edgewear.

Lottman, Herbert R.  
The French Rothschilds: The Great Banking Dynasty through Two Turbulent Centuries

Publisher: New York: Crown Publishers, 1995..
First Edition. 24 X 16 cm. Fine/Fine. Speckled beige boards, brick red cloth spine with gilt titles, vii, 405 pp, 8 ff b & w photo plates, notes, index. DJ in Brodart archival cover. According to the DJ, "There have been a number of books on the Rothschilds, but never one that focused so closely on the French branch of the family. Yet the French Rothschilds with their eventful careers in both the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and the anti-Semitism they faced; their contribution to the settlement of Palestine; the assults they endured from first the Pétain regime and later the Mitterand Socialists; and their famous racehorses and prestigious wines, are in many respects the most fascinating branch of this astonishing family." Shipping weight 3 lbs. (International 2 lbs., 8 oz.)
