New York, New York, U.S.A.: Henry Holt & Company, 2006 Book. Fine. Soft cover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Near-new condition. NO remainder marks or clippings. Tight spine, clean pages. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. 338 pages. Illustrated. To Kill a Mockingbird, the twentieth-century's most widely read American novel, has sold thirty million copies and still sells a million yearly. Yet despite the book's perennial popularity, its creator, Harper Lee has become a somewhat mysterious figure. Now, after years of research, Charles J. Shields has brought to life the warmhearted, high-spirited, and occasionally hardheaded woman who gave us two of American literature's most unforgettable characters--Atticus Finch and his daughter, Scout--and who contributed to the success of her lifelong friend Truman Capote's masterpiece, In Cold Blood. At the center of Shields's lively book is the story of Lee's struggle to create her famous novel. But her life contains many other highlights as well: her girlhood as a tomboy in overalls in tiny Monroeville, Alabama; the murder trial that made her beloved father's reputation and inspired her great work; her journey to Kansas as Capote's ally and research assistant to help report the story of the Clutter murders; the surrogate family she found in New York City. Drawing on six hundred interviews and much new information, Mockingbird is the first book ever written about Harper Lee. Highly entertaining, filled with humor and heart, this is an evocative portrait of a writer, her dream, and the place and people whom she made immortal.., Henry Holt & Company, 2006, 232 pages with frontispiece, figures, plans, plates (some in color), appendices, bibliography and index. Quarto (10 1/2" x 7 3/4") bound in original publisher's black cloth with gilt lettering to spine with pictorial end papers in original pictorial jacket. Contributions by Judith McKenzie and Stephanie Dalley. First edition. This book is based almost entirely on unpublished archives, including the 10,000 page dairy of Lady Charlotte Guest, the brilliant cousin of Austen Henry Layard and the richest woman in England. At her country house, Canford Manor, Guest commissioned Barry, architect of the Houses of Parliament, to create the "Nineveh Porch" for displaying the remarkable sculptures. They established a whole new decorative and and architectural fashion for "Assyrian Revival". Russell explores the events and the cultural issues that led to the creation of the Porch, casting vivid  new light not only on the history and meaning of Assyrian art, but also on archaeological and architectural politics of the day, nineteenth- and twentieth-century taste and collecting, and ethical questions that surround the appropriations of antiquities. Condition:  A near fine copy in like jacket., Yale University Press, 1997, New York: Macmillan Publishing Company, 1988. first edition. Hardcover. VG/VG.

With an extraordinary collection of works by great sculptors and architects reflecting America's history and aspirations, New York City itself is a magnificent museum of sculpture. The public parks and plazas of the city display statues of our heroes in war and peace; fabulous faades and fierce gargoyles decorate its great institutional and religious buildings; and commemorative monuments, bronze animals, and terra-cotta ornaments punctuate its boulevards and avenues. In Monuments and Masterpieces, art historian Donald Reynolds has created an authoritative guide to this unique collection. He surveys eighty examples of sculpture and architecture across the five boroughs, from Grant's Tomb and the U.S. Customs House in Manhattan to the fanciful gates of the Bronx Zoo, Brooklyn's Cadman Plaza war memorial, Staten Island's "Hiker" monument, and the American Architectural Terra-Cotta Company in Queens. Reynolds charts the rise and fall of styles, symbols, and techniques of public art, telling the fascinating stories that lie behind every work. In doing so, he deftly chronicles the fascinating and sometimes surprising social history of America, recorded in granite, bronze, and terra cotta. appreciation,art,arts music and photography,criticism,history and criticism,sculpture,travel Sculpture, Macmillan Pub Co
