Athens (OH) (Images of America)

Athens (OH) (Images of America)

Author: Richard A. Straw, Athens County Historical Society and Museum
Price: $21.99
Binding: Paperback
Description: In the late 1700s, a group of men, largely from Massachusetts, came into the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and settled a village in southeastern Ohio alongside the Hocking River. Calling it Athens to honor their belief in the primacy of education and culture in one?s life, they set in motion a history that continues to inform and enliven life within this community today. Ohio University, the first public institution of higher learning in the Northwest Territory, was founded here in 1804. Athens has served as a business, service, cultural, and educational meeting place for over 200 years. As a result, Athens is a culturally diverse community of professors, plumbers, lawyers, craftsmen, restaurateurs, students, musicians, artists, and business owners, and it is heir to a historic past. This collection of fascinating photographs of people, places, homes, businesses, churches, and important events comes from the vast archives of the Athens County Historical Society and Museum. The images open the past and provide an informative glimpse into an earlier period of life in this unique community.[more]

The Ohio River

The Ohio River

Author: John Ed Pearce, Richard Nugent
Price: $50.00
Binding: Hardcover
Description: Here?in haunting words and pictures?is the story of the river and of the people and places along its shores. From its birth at Pittsburgh in the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers, the Ohio flows nearly a thousand miles, gathering the waters of its tributaries, carving a pathway through the land, giving rise to cities, forming the boundaries of five states, and finally emptying into the Mississippi to complete its journey to the sea. This powerful river shaped the history, the culture, and the character of those who followed the river's lure in the eighteenth century and those who make their homes beside it today. It was the first great pathway to the West, the trail of danger, the highway of hope.

The Ohio today flows through the industrial heartland of the United States. Drawn by the power of this great river, writer John Ed Pearce and photographer Richard Nugent have traveled the Ohio from Pittsburgh to Cairo and back, seeking out the scenes, the echoes of history, the rhythms of life for those who call the Ohio home. This book is the record of their discoveries?on the river itself and in the villages and cities and farmlands that form it shores.

Athens County (Images of America)

Athens County (Images of America)

Author: Ron Luce
Price: $21.99
Binding: Paperback
Description: Athens County, Ohio, came out of the pioneer spirit of a new nation expanding westward after the Revolutionary War into the Northwest Territory. Upon declaration of the Northwest Ordinance of 1787, the Ohio Company of Associates bought millions of acres of land to sell to land-hungry easterners. In 1788, the first boat of new settlers arrived in Marietta, Ohio. By 1797, wars with the Native Americans had ended and more land became available. When they got here, settlers found some rich farmland, but more importantly they discovered salt, coal, clay and a need for industry to provide for the needs of the people. Opportunities abounded to make fortunes in other places from the resources readily available locally. Central to the development of Athens County was the vision people had years before the first settlers arrived; they dreamed of and made provisions for a university in the new territory. Today, more than 200 years later, Ohio University thrives in the city of Athens.[more]

Nelsonville (Images of America)

Nelsonville (Images of America)

Author: Lorinda LeClain
Price: $21.99
Binding: Paperback
Description: Named for Daniel Nelson, who arrived with his family in 1814, Nelsonville grew to become a boomtown by the mid-1800s. Coal mines and brick factories were its major employers, and the town attracted emigrant workers from England. Two major routes, the Hocking Canal and Hocking Valley Railroad, not only provided transportation for the area but also a means to export coal. The canal suffered attacks by Gen. John Hunt Morgan and his Confederate cavalry during the Civil War and was ultimately destroyed by spring flooding, but the railroad has remained a premiere tourist attraction. The Public Square, around which the earliest establishments such as the Dew House were erected, continues to thrive as an arts district. Images of America: Nelsonville uses archival photographs and postcards to celebrate the most influential people and beloved places of the ?Little City of Black Diamonds? and to recap the challenges and triumphs that helped earn Nelsonville its distinctive reputation.[more]

A Guide to Chicago's Historic Suburbs on Wheels and on Foot

A Guide to Chicago's Historic Suburbs on Wheels and on Foot

Author: Ira J. Bach
Price: $89.95
Binding: Hardcover
Description: Although the Chicago area is famous the world over for its splendid architecture, the architectural treasures of the suburban area have remained largely unknown. Ira Bach, assisting by Susan Wolfson, has now provided a comprehensive readable guide to more than 850 nineteenth century dwellings, commercial buildings, public buildings, and churches which are memorable and well worth visiting for their fine architecture and their historic significance. Organized by county, then by town, this book shows us the real roots of Chicago architecture.

The 35 Walking Tours make up the heart of the book. Each tour has been planned to ?walk you? from one historic building to the next in each of 35 towns. There are easy-to-follow foot maps, as well as invaluable notes on style and design. All the Walking Tours are 2 miles or less from start to finish.

Also included is an Introduction by Carroll William Westfall, associate professor of history of architecture and the art of University of Illinois, Chicago Circle. 42 major maps accompany the foot tours and auto routes, and over 110 photos were made especially for this book by Harold A. Nelson, an architect and photographer.

The Cincinnati Wing: The Story of Art in the Queen City (Ohio Bicentennial)

The Cincinnati Wing: The Story of Art in the Queen City (Ohio Bicentennial)

Author: Julie Aronson
Price: $55.00
Binding: Hardcover
Description: On May 10, 2003, the Cincinnati Art Museum will celebrate the opening of the Cincinnati Wing: eighteen thousand square feet of handsomely renovated gallery space devoted to the museum?s renowned collections of painting, sculpture, furniture, ceramics, and metalwork by Cincinnati artists. The museum is the first in the country to reinterpret its American art collections with a regional emphasis, fostering civic pride and drawing attention to the achievements of the city?s artists.

In conjunction with the celebration, Ohio University Press is proud to publish The Cincinnati Wing: The Story of Art in the Queen City, showcasing one of America's foremost art centers of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

The authors of this collection trace the thematic arrangement of the Cincinnati Wing galleries, situating the artwork in the context of the city?s history as it progressed from a frontier river town to an industrial powerhouse. The Cincinnati Wing provides a vivid picture of the fertile social and cultural climate that produced such prominent figures in the history of American art as sculptor Hiram Powers and painters Robert S. Duncanson, Frank Duveneck, and John H. Twachtman.

Cincinnati's contributions to the decorative arts are exemplified by the stunning ceramics of the celebrated Rookwood Pottery Company, the nation's leading art pottery firm, and by the city's lesser-known yet equally significant Aesthetic Movement furniture.

One hundred fifty-one color plates highlight the beauty and diversity of the Cincinnati Art Museum's collections and illuminate the Queen City's great artistic legacy.
