Chesapeake Bay Notes & Sketches
 Picture
Publisher: Tidewater Publishers, 1970 Cambridge, MD.
ISBN: 0870331485 Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "It is not difficult to imagine how the finest of the world's estuaries, Chesapeake Bay, looked to the first Englishmen who came to settle and use it three hundred and fifty years ago. It is not difficult because many left accurate descriptions and because, most fortunately, Chesapeake Bay remains relatively unspoiled. Many of its creeks and bays still seem remote when one explores them today. The Chesapeake impresses us with its beauty as it impressed those first Europeans who sailed it and wrote of it..The marshes John Smith described and the points he named are still there. The shores are covered with the same kinds of trees; the insects that plagued him are still a nuisance. Most of the birds and fish he noted are still found in the Bay, but not in the numbers he recorded. The animal life on the shore has changed, and the Indians, whose customs and language smith took pains to describe, have almost completely disappeared..After three hundred years of exploiting, the American is forced to face the reality that the resources can be exhausted, the country become crowded, and the beautiful land spoiled. Today the Chesapeake is still beautiful and largely unspoiled, but it is threatened..It is because we share the admiration of Smith and others and because we are concerned for the future of the Chesapeake that we are attempting this description of it, the story of man's use of it, and the factors and conditions that threaten it." Illustrated. viii + 168 pages with index. Book is in GOOD or better condition. No dust jacket.

"..Back in 1957, East Neck Isle, Inc., a housing development corporation, purchased from Mary Frances Esenwein 389 acres on Eastern Neck Island..The housing subdivision's potential threat to migratory waterfowl habitat was recognized by the federal Migratory Bird Conservation Commission, which is responsible for the purchase of land for waterfowl refuges.

Negotiations for the acquisition of the land on Eastern Neck Island began in 1962..The purpose of this collection of intervie3ws, oral histories, anecdotes, original text and copies of old maps, photographs, and public documents is to preserve for the public a glimpse of the community on Eastern Neck Island during the 100-year period before the establishment of the Refuge. As a point of reference, the U.S. Census showed 95 people living on Eastern Neck Island in 1910 and 71 people in 1920.

Bode, Carl

ISBN: 0393056724 Book. Book condition: Very Good. Very Good. Hardcover Signed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall SIGNED by author on title page! "In 1634, two small ships, the Ark and the Dove, brought the first English settlers to what would become Maryland. That event is familiar to most Marylanders - and something they won't find in this book. What the reader will discover is a delightful series of characters and episodes that more dramatically illuminates Maryland's historical character. Such vignettes, believes author Carl Bode, tell us much about the variety of the state's experience and what is important in it. For the eighteenth century, we see through the eyes of Daniel Dulany, an ambitious, self-made planter, politician, and colonial gentleman. Severn Teackle Wallis helps us unravel Maryland history in the nineteenth century, while the letters of William and Margaret Preston give a personal glimpse of middle-class life in Victorian America..Today, life in Maryland, as in the rest of the nation, has changed greatly from its colonial beginnings. The new town of Columbia would seem a strange place indeed to Daniel Dulany. Yet, for Marylanders who are aware of their past, life here clearly remains related to it: pleasant and comfortable, but sometimes capricious - something that Dulany would have understood, for sure."

Maryland
 Picture
Publisher: Graphic Arts Center Publishing Company, 1985 Portland, OR.
ISBN: 0932575048 Book. Book condition: Near Fine. Very Good. Hardcover Folio - over 12 - 15" tall "The geography of Maryland encompasses a broad range of terran from the lonely sea barrier isle of Assateague to the steep mountains of the Appalachian Divide. Maryland's most prominent feature, Chesapeake Bay, gives her a total shoreline of more than 5, 000 miles. World famous oysters, crabs, and clams come from the Bay and dozens of waterfront towns are dependent on these fisheries. Pleasure craft fill numerous harbors, including historic Annapolis, and freighters dock frequently in Baltimore - one of the world's great ports. Sweeping across a portion of the Delmarva Peninsula, the Eastern Shore has maintained a traditional and independent lifestyle based on agriculture and fishing..In this major work of exquisite images, Steve Uzzell captures the spirit, beauty, and diversity of Maryland. He interprets her landscape, cities, and people with great sensitivity. Uzzell's artistic eye, combined with his mastery of photographic techniques and his understanding of Maryland, has produced this colorful essay covering the length and breadth of the state..A distinguished and widely acclaimed author and professor, Dr. Carl Bode gives the reader an insight into the Old Line State. He does this through a succinct survey of the state's social, economic, and cultural modes, with an emphasis on the question, 'What does it mean to live in Maryland?' To the answer he brings both affection and understanding. Together, photographer and author present a magnificent feast for the eyes - a delightful tapestry of images and words that is a celebration of the State of Maryland." Beautifully and profusely illustrated. 128 pages. Book is in NEAR FINE condition. Dust jacket is in VERY GOOD or better condition.

My Maryland

Publisher: Camera Magazine, 1952 Baltimore, MD.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall This is a photographic essay describing Maryland the way it was seen by A. Aubrey Bodine. " ..The creator of this book is one of these most fortunate of men. Combine the qualities of authentic genius with lifelong love of a chosen work. Add to that a sense of beauty and of drama and excitement. Add to that the rarest of all forms of the imagination - sensitivity. The sum of these is Aubrey Bodine. And this book is the sum of Bodine. It is the summed-up richness of the work of twenty-five years. If you count the pictures in it, you will come to the conclusion that there are one hundred and seventy-four. The number will be correct; but it will also be quite wrong. No set of numerals can express the contents of this book. For what you hold in your hands is the essence of twenty-five thousand photographs - the best of Bodine produced in a quarter of a century.." 128 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.

Chesapeake Bay and Tidewater
 Picture
Publisher: Bonanza Books , 1980 New York.
ISBN: 0517309483 Book. Book condition: Good. Good. Hardcover 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall "This is the first photographic study ever published of the historic Chesapeake and its fabulous country. It was compiled by one of America's most distinguished photographers, who passed away in 1970. The magnificent photographs in this enlarged and revised book were selected by Mr. Bodine as his favorites from the many thousands of pictures he has made of the Bay and tidewater Maryland, Delaware and Virginia during the past 40 years. They range from a breath-taking view of a tidewater mill that ground grain for Washington's army to a dramatic photograph - a study of light and shadows - of the Capital of the United States, from a classic portrait of a storm-soaked waterman to a helicopter view of a brigade of Naval Academy midshipmen on parade, the first such 'still' picture every made. There are pictures that depict the Bay as a great artery, pictures that show the tremendous resources of the Bay, and a great variety of memorable photographs that portray all manner of tidewater life. Some of the photographs capture scenes that have long since disappeared from the Bay - the now outlawed sink boxes, picturesque old sailing craft, steamboat races and forgotten steamboat wharves. Several of the pictures, among the first that Mr. Bodine ever made on the Bay, were taken on glass plate negatives. A great many of the photographs are a part of the Bodine collection of 4000 prints which has been assembled by the historic Mariners' Museum in Newport News. Every picture in the book is technically flawless - the work of a master craftsman. And, even more important, each picture - whether of a sailboat beating down the Bay or of a tidewater manor house at sundown - captures some of the be3auty, the mood, the very essence of the Bay.." Photographs are in black-and-white. 160 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition.

Run to the Lee

Publisher: The Johns Hopkins University Press, 1988 Baltimore, MD.
ISBN: 0801836778 Book. Book condition: Very Good. Trade paperback 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "..In Run to the Lee Kenneth Brooks has written of these last days of the sailing freighters on Chesapeake Bay. He has also given the reader a detailed and accurate word picture of an outstanding schooner captain..John Talbott. Most of Run to the Lee is devoted to captain Talbott's battle with a December blizzard as he drove his schooner southward toward the harbor on the Patuxent. This is quite a yarn, and Ken Brooks, who began his won exploration of the Chesapeake country at the tender age of 10 as a cabin boy on the 48-foot yawl Natalie, has written with authenticity and vigor..As a fictionalized account of life on the Chesapeake Bay at the turn of the century, Run to the Lee has the same appeal to all ages as Gilbert Byron's own beloved novel, The Lord's Oysters." 185 pages.

ISBN: 0801839882 Book. Book condition: Near Fine. Very Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "In his nationally acclaimed The Lord's Oysters, Gilbert Byron told the story of a young boy growing up on Maryland's Eastern Shore in the early twentieth century. Noah Marlin is older now, as Byron takes his tale of Chesapeake watermen and their families in this long-awaited sequel to his beloved classic. In Done Crabbin' Noah's world has begun to change. At 12 he gets his first ride in a neighbor's Model-T Ford and hears his father read newspaper accounts of the latest American ship to fall prey to German U-boats. The coming of the automobile and the coming of war - both events signal an end to the island-like remoteness of Maryland's Eastern Shore as well as to Noah's childhood isolation. For Noah, life on the river is becoming less important than life in the town. He's shocked to discover his fifth-grade teacher, the yellow-haired Miss Bertie, parked in a buggy on a back road with Doc Beller, but keeps his discovery secret when he remembers Doc's profession..He hears William Jennings Bryan speak beneath the leaking canopy of a Chatauqua tent during a raging thunderstorm, and remarks in passing that a young man on the tent crew would be killed a year later when his biplane crashed in France. In the end, they all leave the river. Captain Cable trades his illegal 200-pound duck gun for a carpenter's tools. 'Grandpappy' abandons his houseboat, spending his last days in the Marlin family home. Noah's father finds a job in a Baltimore shipyard during the World War I shipbuilding boom and, at last, brings the family to the city to join him. And when Noah himself goes off to prep school, he knows that he and his father have left their old lives for good. They would never follow the water again. They are done crabbin'" 195 pages.

Chesapeake Duke
 Picture
Publisher: Tidewater Publishers, 1975 Cambridge, MD.
ISBN: 0870332104 Book. Book condition: Fair. Trade paperback 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "A boy and his dog - the subject of universal appeal, that is always fresh, new, and different, because every boy and every dog is different. this time the story is told against the background of our Chesapeake country as it was sixty years ago. It covers the first year in the life of Duke, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, who, with his young master, twelve-year-old Noah Marlin and Noah's pal, Ric Lawrence, explores the creek, the river, and a great tidewater marsh. Chesapeake Duke tells of the adventures of the three pals - exciting, humorous, and twice saved from being tragic, when the loyal Duke saves Noah's life. There are interesting details about the training of the dog by his master, and a vivid picture of the leisurely life of a small river town on the Eastern Shore, in the years before the outbreak of World War I. But most of all, it is a moving, entertaining story of a friendship based on affection and truest and of the growth in understanding and independence as the boys and the dog become more mature. There is a quality of depth and feeling in the book that will make it live in the memory of its readers. Chesapeake Duke is a continuation of a story that began in the author's The Lord's Oysters." Illustrated. 162 pages. Book is in FAIR condition; a bit more wear than we like to see. Paper wrappers.

Many are still known, recounted and sung by different folk groups. Folk legends and folk songs from all sections of the state are included. However, it will not take the reader long to notice the coverage is concentrated on the Eastern Shore and Western Maryland. This is the result of these two areas being the scene of the most extensive folklore collecting. Though this collection of legends and folk songs is by no means definitive, nor even geographically representative, it is the author's hope it may serve as some sort of catalyst for further gathering and publishing of folk materials in the state. Maryland has a very vital folk heritage, and there is still much to be done." 120 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. Paper wrappers.

Maryland Folklore and Folklife
 Picture
Publisher: Tidewater Publishers, 1970 Cambridge, MD.
ISBN: 087033154x Book. Book condition: Good. Trade paperback 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "Maryland has a great variety of folk groups. Not only is Maryland a border state, thus containing a mingling of northern and southern language traits, but within its confines there are urban ethnic groups and rural occupational groups, mountain settlements and maritime pockets, river people and farm workers. For some time there has been a harsh and unfounded rumor abroad that folklore in Maryland is dead and that folk cultures are fast eroding with the onslaught of suburbia and the pop cultures feedback of the mass media. In this book Dr. Carey presents convincing proof that this is not so. Folklore thrives; so, too, do those groups which provide it - not those groups from a hoary antiquity, but units of people bound together by some common bond, be it racial, occupational, or religious. And these groups do cry out for study..Folk culture as a whole encompasses not only the oral traditions but also the collection and examination of the concrete items a homogeneous folk group may produce, such as arts, crafts and architecture. Here is presented a wide selection of this material as well as details on the methods of collecting it." Illustrated. x + 98 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. Paper wrappers.

     President James Buchanan declared January 4, 1861 a national day of fasting and prayer in an effort to calm both sides in the brewing secession crisis. This was the earnest sermon preached by Reverend Chew to his flock in Prince George's County, Maryland on that day. He here argues "that it was God who gave to our forefathers the wisdom to construct this government…[and] that though it may occasionally need repairs, those repairs should be made calmly, dispassionately, with circumspection and with caution; and that it is entirely too sacred a fabric to lightly and needlessly destroyed. Certain it is that if it is once destroyed, its place will never again be supplied." Bound in printed paper covers over a saddle-stitched binding.

Easton (Maryland)
 Picture
Publisher: Arcadia Publishing, 1999 Charleston, SC.
ISBN: 0738501719 Book. Book condition: Very Good. Trade paperback 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall Images of America series. "In the early part of the 18th century, Talbot County on Maryland's Eastern Shore was re3structured in size and boundary, requiring the designation of a new county seat. Groups from the Wye River to Oxford competed vigorously to have their town win the honor. But the selection committee, with manifest partiality, decided upon the geographical center of the new county; a remote field cultivated and then abandoned by its native residents. Here was born the town that would eventually be known as Easton. Telling the story of the original Talbot Court House, the market, early schools, churches, and businesses, this fascinating visual history documents an era of significant change for the town in the early 20th century. Improved roads and transportation allowed the widespread population of the county to come to town; friends and family members could meet more often, and a sense of community identity began to grow. Avid collector and local history enthusiast Laurence G. Claggett has drawn images from a wonderful personal collection as well as from the community to create this nostalgic and educational look at Easton in an earlier time. This lovingly crafted tribute is sure to win the hearts of both longtime residents and visitors to the area." Well illustrated. 128 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Paper wrappers.

ISBN: 0870335510 Book. Book condition: Very Good. Trade paperback 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "In a little more than a hundred years, a wild and desolate barrier island in Maryland became a teeming resort city. The story began in 1875 when a group of Eastern Shore, Baltimore, and Philadelphia businessmen held the grand opening of a five-story frame building called the Atlantic Hotel, and offered surrounding lots for sale at $25 each. Skeptics observing the scene predicted disaster with the first bad storm. What follows is a narrative of shifting sands - and shifting fortunes - as the city weathered natural and economic setbacks and advances to become, every summer, Maryland's second largest city. The narrative draws extensively on the memoirs of early resort residents and most of all on conversations with people who have given the town its distinctive character. This is an appealing portrait of an outstanding resort that has been a magnet to vacationers for more than a century." Illustrated. 200 pages with index. Book is in VERY GOOD condition.

Dulany, Ralph  
The Dulanys of Fruitland: The Story of a Delmarva Peninsula Family
 Picture
Publisher: Jones Rivr Press`, 1997 Plymouth, MA.
ISBN: 0962873896 Book. Book condition: Good. Trade paperback 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "Ralph Dulany was a meticulous chronicler of an extraordinary era, tracking the growth of the Delmarva Peninsula from his 19th century childhood to the eve of the 21st century. The sandy streets of Fruitland, Maryland, were sometimes improved with a topping of crushed oyster shells when Ralph Dulany was born in 1893. The town of Salisbury, the Wicomico County seat, was about four miles north and had a population of about 7, 000 - one-third of the size in the 1990 census. Farming was the principal occupation and it was a hand operation - no big machines. Also no refrigeration and few other conveniences, no indoor plumbing and lighting by kerosene lamps. By the time Ralph reached his 88th year, he had participated in a family business that canned the best of Delmarva Peninsula's fruits and vegetables for the tables of the world, had himself traveled the world as an expert in his food-processing business, was involved with Clarence Birdseye's introduction of frozen foods - and still had time to serve his beloved church, share his good fortune through his Rotary Club's 'Service above self' activities, as well as public service as county commissioner, public housing advocate and head of the state economic commission. Ralph Dulany loved his hometown but he fuylly integrates its history with the larger world in this fascinating autobiography." 187 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition; gift inscription on title page. Paper wrappers.

But if the reader is given new insights into familiar personalities and their exploits, he is also made privy to tales concerning lesser known persons and places which are no less interesting.
