"The “Finders and Makers” series began with The Flowering of New England, 1815–1865 (1936) , followed by New England: Indian Summer, 1865–1915 (1940) , The World of Washington Irving (1944) , The Times of Melville and Whitman (1947) , and The Confident Years: 1885–1915 (1952). Criticized by some for seeking in this series a mainstream, essentially middlebrow, cultural tradition free from contradictions and conflicts, Brooks wrote The Writer in America (1953) to justify his position." ; Signed by Author.

The tray case is in Very Good+ condition, but has several spots of discoloration, along with some wear and tear. "John Smith fell out of favor with the directors of the Virginia Company mostly due to his insistence of increasing food supply and reducing colonist numbers. Despite this, he wrote a series of publications after returning to England in October 1609[2] about the colonial effort in North America, where he marginalized the Company's involvement. The Generall Historie was based in large part on information he was given by others, as he had not personally witnessed what had happened in the years between his leaving Virginia and publishing the book. Some episodes may have been fabricated, condensed, or truncated, the most famous perhaps being whether or not he was actually "saved" from death by Pocahontas in 1607 (a fact Smith did not write about until this publication)."
