ALEXANDRA VILLARD DE BORCHGRAVE
Villard, The Life and Times of an American Titan
Doubleday, New York, NY, March 2001, 1st Ed. Hardbound. Villard, The Life and Times of an American Titan by Alexandra Villard De Borchgrave. Published by Doubleday, New York, NY, March 2001. 1st Edition. Hardbound, no DJ. Size 8vo (up to 9-1/2'' tall). Condition: Nr Fine. 415 Pgs. ISBN 0385486626. LCCN 00-061545. By Alexandra Villard De Borchgrave and John Cullen. Henry Villard was one of the most remarkable and important figures to shape the tumultuous history of nineteenth -century America. A preeminent Civil War journalist, an industrialist, and a financial maverick, his courage, perseverance, and farsightedness made him the equal of such titans of his day as J.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, and Andrew Carnegie. Drawing on unpublished letters, Henry Villard's German and English memoirs, and many other sources, the author's fast-paced, absorbing biography vividly re-creates Villard's times and tells the rags-to-riches story of a German immigrant who made major contributions to his adopted homeland.

ANNE MORROW LINDBERGH
Locked Rooms and Open Doors: Diaries and Letters of Ann Morrow Lindbergh, 1933-1935
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, New York, NY, 1974, 1st Stated Ed 1st Pr. Hardbound. Locked Rooms and Open Doors: Diaries and Letters of Ann Morrow Lindbergh, 1933-1935 by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. Published by Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, New York, NY, 1974. 1st Stated Edition1st Printing. Hardbound in Glassine Protected DJ. Size 8vo (up to 9-1/2'' tall). Condition: VG in Good DJ. Discarded Library Book. Book stamp impressed on title page. 352 Pgs. ISBN 0151529582. LCCN 73-16152. The diaries give an affectingly immediate sense of the hardships endured by a young woman sharing the exploits of a singularly determined and vigorous man. Far more than in any of her previously published books about their flights together, Mrs. Lindbergh shows what it was really like: her struggles with fear, homesickness for her child, and the varied discomforts of cold, heat, excessive fatigue, primitive living conditions, bugs, and exposure to public curiosity. In compensation, there are the high rewards of early flying beauty and adventure, of equal partnership in a demanding task, and of living up to the standards set by and exceptional husband. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Description text copyright 2005 BooksForComfort. Item ID 9155. ISBN: 0151529582. VG in Good DJ. Discarded Library Book.

Published by Iowa State University Press, Ames, IA, 1971. 1st Stated Edition. Hardbound, Paper DJ. Size 8vo (up to 9-1/2'' tall). Condition: Nr Fine in Chipped DJ. 191 Pgs. ISBN 0813803950. LCCN 74-137091. This book is largely an account of the author's recollections of her father, Dr Edwin D Frear and his work as she accompanied him on his medical calls. Additional material obtained from her father's diary and other personal sources. Capturing a bit of old Americana, the author takes the reader back to the turn of the century, to the favorite old horse and buggy and the first automobiles and rural telephones. You will find yourself in a well-equipped doctor's office of the day, which may boast a dandy, new hand-operated generator for treating rheumatism. Or in the adjoining office of the author's dentist-uncle, you may view with some trepidation the S S White Vulcanize that often seems in danger of exploding. This thoughtful, informative account of the dramatic and humorous episodes in a pioneer doctor's life is delightful reading for all ages. Description text copyright 2006 BooksForComfort.
