Longford Castle: The Treasures and the Collectors

Amelia Smith

Best price for this book: $ 60

Nestled alongside the River Avon near Salisbury, in Wiltshire, Longford Castle is a wonderful example of an Elizabethan country house, carefully maintained and preserved to this day. But until recently, it has been relatively little known compared to other English country houses. This book will help to change that. Based on extensive research in the archives of the Bouverie family, which has owned the castle for centuries, it tells the story of the house; its breathtaking collection of art, collected over centuries; and its remarkable furnishings, created by the finest craftsmen of the day. The first glimpse inside this very private house that only recent opened to the public for the first time, and perfect for the armchair traveler or history buff, this book offers all the delights of a country house visit.

The Shirley Letters from the California Mines, 1851-1852

Louise Amelia Knapp Smith Clappe

Best price for this book: $ 16.5

The Shirley Letters, written from the mining camps in 1851 and 1852, are something valuable and rare--a portrait by a woman of an era dominated by men. They offer a vivid picture of gold rush life, from accounts of ''murders, fearful accidents, bloody deaths, a mob, whippings, a hanging, an attempt at suicide, and a fatal duel'' to bars lined with ''that eternal crimson calico which flushes the whole social life of the Golden State,'' and the rare and welcome luxury of oyster feasts. With the ''wild grandeur and awful magnificence'' of the Sierra as background, this classic account presents a picture of the gold rush that is at times humorous, at times empathetic, and always trustworthy.
