From Crossroads to County Seat: A Bicentennial Look at Georgetown, Delaware
 Picture
Publisher: Georgetown Historical Society / Rogers Graphics, Inc, 1990 Georgetown, DE.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good. Hardcover 4to - over 9 - 12" tall Oversized hardcover. "There comes a time when memories, even the best of them, begin to fade. Some of the familiar faces and personalities we have cherished pass on and begin to blend with the keen edge of events that happened--was it only yesterday? Homes, public buildings, businesses and schools which housed and were often memorials to all of these cannot always be restored to their original form, eventually disappearing due to neglect or 'progress'. The Georgetown Historical Society is participating in Georgetown's Bicentennial Year of 1991 by publishing this collection of historical material, with many illustrations of documents, buildings, homes, objects, and biographical sketches of prominent persons and legends. Materials, carefully tended by generations of townsfolk, have come from varied sources far and near to a very diligent committee of the Historical Society. It has been a great deal of fun and work to sort through all the resources. In presenting this collection, no effort has been spared to retain original form as nearly as possible. Errors may have been transmitted, but the committee regards this work as a trustworthy and reliable presentation of facts. The committee has tried to be as comprehensive as possible without creating a five volume monster. Due to the amount of material being dealt with, every detail could not possibly be included. We hope you will enjoy and treasure this volume as we have--a work of love." 206 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condtion. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; some edgewear and a 1" tear along the bottom of the rear fold .

Book. Book condition: Very Good. Trade paperback Signed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall SIGNED by author on title page: "To Melvin, / Best wishes / Bruce A Bendler / 25 Dec 90". "What began as a genealogical exercise by a descendant of several early assemblymen has developed into much more - a thorough study of colonial Delaware assemblies and their members that will be of great interest to historians as well as to genealogists. Indeed, acquaintance with this publication will be a necessity for any good student of colonial American politics. The bulk of the work consists of a biographical directory of colonial Delaware Assemblymen. The author, Bruce Bendler, presents in compact form the vital statistics for each representative and information concerning his place of birth and residence, his relationships to other people (including especially his connection to other assemblymen), his religion, and his wealth as far as these data can e discovered. The sources used are also noted. A valuable introduction briefly recounts the history of representative government in colonial Delaware, summarizes information regarding the characteristics of the assemblymen, and discusses the nature of the assembly, including such details as organizational structure and continuity of service. As an appendix, the author gives the most nearly complete list extant of the membership of the successive assemblies, with identification of the speakers, who are also listed in the introduction.." xvii + 158 pages with index.

Early Architecture of Delaware
 Picture
Publisher: Bonanza Books, 0 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. Good. Hardcover 4to - over 9 - 12" tall No date; ca. 1970s. Introduction and text by Joseph L. Copeland. "George F. Bennett's Early Architecture of Delaware is a comprehensive study in the form of photographs and detailed drawings, mostly domestic, which show the influence of successive Dutch, SWwedish, and English colonization of the first of these United States. These present-standing buildings cover a long period of time - 1660 to 1840 - and a very wide range of style and type. The stately Georgian dwellings of Dover and New Castle, including many hitherto unpu7blished, are supplemented by scores of those smaller dwellings - of characteristic Delaware brick, stone and frame, wealthy in architectural detail - win which the average man of that day lived out his life. The book grew out of Mr. bennett's interest in the architecture of his native State. In the course of innumerable journeys he visited every 'hundred' (township in other states) of Delaware; penetrating to the out-of-the-way villages and country by-ways often closed to the stranger. Laymen, as well as architects, to whom the small house is always a problem, should be especially interested in the fact that so much time and effort have been given to a reproduction of details of the smaller dwellings and domestic buildings; and also the fact that few of the houses shown had previous publication."

Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "..This book is a result of thirty years of observation as a political scientist in Delaware - a contemporary analysis, but also a synthesis of what I have learned. I wanted to write a comprehensive and penetrating policy analysis, such as had not been written about any other state. Delaware could serve as a microcosm of the nation in the last years of the twentieth century, in the sense that many of Delaware's problems are also major problems in other states, the nation, and indeed the world. For example, urban sprawl, pollution, and health are growing problems everywhere. Extensive analysis of these and other quality-of-life problems in one small state could highlight public agenda challenges facing the nation as a whole. Delaware, of course, is unique and has some problems peculiarly its own.." 341 pages with index. Book is in GOOD or better condition. NO dust jacket.
