Botkin, B. A. (ed)  
A Treasury of Southern Folklore: Stories, Ballads, Traditions, and Folkways of the People of the South (Maryland Edition)
 Picture
Publisher: Crown Publishers, 1949 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. Poor. Hardcover Signed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall SIGNED "B. A.Botkin" on front endpaper. Edited, with an introduction by B. A. Botkin; foreword by Douglas Southall Freeman. "Here is the South - the glamorous, gracious, rambunctious, contentious, warm-hearted South. Here are the rebel yells and the Negro blues, the magnolias blooming and the pot likker brewing. Here's Dixie - from Maryland's Eastern Shore and the Tidewater of Virginia to the broad Mississippi and deep in the heart of Texas. Here's the South as Southerners know it and tell about it and sing about it. This is a book rich with the drama and color and tradition of the ante-bellum aristocracy of the Bluegrass, the Tidewater, the Low Country and Creole Louisiana - jam-packed with the wonderful lore and incomparable music of the Negro, with the fun and gaiety and simple wisdom of the rural folk of the backwoods and back-waters, the river bottoms, swamps, and bayous, the hills and valleys. Here are more than 500 stories and more than 75 folksongs, presenting for the first time the full cast of characters of the amazingly varied South - heroes like Patrick Henry, Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, Stonewall Jackson and the almost godlike Robert E. Lee; outlaws and pirates like Murtell, Jean Lafitte and Blackbeard; poor whites, Crackers, slaves, Cajuns, Gullahs, Seminoles, Cherokee, raftsmen, pioneers and priests and hellfire-and-damnation preachers, gamblers, roustabouts, cotton pickers and oyster shuckers, colonels, belles and beauties.." 776 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. Dust jacket is separating at rear fold; thus, poor condition.

Carey, George  
A Faraway Time and Place: Lore of the Eastern Shore
 Picture
Publisher: Robert B. Luce, Inc., 1971 Washington, DC.
Book. Book condition: Good to Very Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "Come with folklorist George Carey on an enchanting trip to a pocket of American culture which has changed little in the last two hundred years, where the waterman's life is still bound to the sea, and where the traditional folktales, beliefs, and superstitions are still alive. maryland's Eastern Shore communities, stuck at the ends of long fingers of land extending into the Chesapeake Bay, isolated and nearly forgotten, nurture a culture which dates back to the 17th century. Their geographical removal, preoccupation with the sea, and rock-bound Methodist religion create a cohesion and unity from which springs a whole body of tales, anecdotes, proverbial speech, legends, riddling and superstitions tailored to meet the needs and amusements of the people. A Faraway Time and Place is a harvesting of these oral traditions. The legends of Eastern Shore heroes and strong men, the fishermen's yarns, and the ghost stories will bring to life this picturesque maritime culture. As 'progress' and the ubiquitous media have caused many of America's more quaint folk traditions to perish, George Carey has preserved in the pages of this book one area of folklore which unfortunately may also soon disappear." 256 pages. Book is in GOOD to VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD or better condition; some shelfwear.
