Mary Wesley's novels have given pleasure to many thousands of readers,and the West Country,where she has made her home for fifty years,has always been a source of inspiration.In 'Part of the Scenery' she revisits scenes from her own life and celebrates the rugged beauty of the Cornish coast,the wide spaces of Dartmoor and the lush peace of Devon's green valleys and rivers.With the help of Kim Sayer's evocative photographs she shows us her own personal West Country.    Mary first visited Cornwall in 1913,when she was one year old,and ever since the West Country has held a firm place in her affections.Her childhood enchantment with the sandy beaches,high cliffs and bumpy rocks has endured and deepened as she has discovered more and more of this unique land.She remembers being taught to ride by Jenny the Exmoor pony,boarding a captured German submarine and coming across a herd of llamas evacuated from Paignton Zoo during the Second World War.It was in the West Country,with her husband's encouragement, that Mary began to write.Her characters and their homes have often been inspired by the people and countryside around her,as the quotations from her novels demonstrate.Here,when she shares some of the true stories and favourite locations that have made their way into her books,she allows us to glimpse something of the process by which a writer mixes imagination and reality in the creation of fiction.      'Part of the Scenery' is a private journey through the West Country,one rich in memories which illuminate the sometimes wild and independent nature of this region as we;; as its more familiar sunshine and beaches.From Land's End to Polzeath,from South Sands to Mary's current home in Totnes,this journey is vividly brought  to life by Kim Sayer's beautiful photographs.and it is a journey we can all share.                                                                                                                                      Kim Sayer has been a London photographer for twenty-five years,specializing in advertising and editorial work.He particularly enjoyed working with Mary Wesley on this project as it allowed him to get to know more of the West Country.He now lives and works in south Devon.                                                                          Since April 2013 and again in March 2015,and in 2016 too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering it's prices,weight allowances,dimensions and lowered it's qualifying compensation rates too!So,please contact rpaxtonden@blueyonder.co.uk,because of the weight/value of this item for correct,insured shipping/P+p quotes - particularly ALL overseas buyers - BEFORE ordering through the order page! , LONDON.BANTAM PRESS/TRANSWORLD PUBLISHERS,2001., New York: Hudson Hills Press, 1997.

American Windsor Furniture: Specialized Forms - used book

1996, ISBN: 9781555950644

ID: 6871417

American Windsor Chairs was one of the publishing phenomena of 1996, selling out in its first season. Now this companion volume continues Nancy Goyne Evans's magisterial study of American Windsor furniture, which was part of the fabric of American life from before the birth of the national until the mid-nineteenth century and is now among the most widely collected objects in the decorative-arts field. Unlike the massproduced Windsor armchair and side chair, most of these specialized forms were made to order. Early examples were painted green, later ones ranged from yellow to black, with nineteenth-century examples often decorated more elaborately. Here are cradles, highchairs, and other children's furniture; writing-arm chairs, rocking chairs (including nursing and sewing chairs), settees and benches, stools, and spinning wheels; such rare forms as commode chairs, seats for invalids, barber chairs, and seating for use in vehicles; even toy miniatures. The material is surveyed chronologically and by geographic region, from Pennsylvania through New York, New England, the South, the Midwest, and Canada. Each form is treated in cultural, economic, and technological context. American Windsor Furniture: Specialized Forms Evans, Nancy Goyne, Hudson Hills Press
