About this Item: Arcadia Publishing, United States, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Loose the latchstring and peer into the places whereNathaniel Hawthorne passed back and forth from nineteenth century New England to the fertile country of his imagination. The historic images in this pictorial biography many by famed Salem photographer Frank Cousins might not inspire readers to the same literary genius as the celebrated author, but the dim and dusky grandeur lingering in his favorite haunts will no doubtenlighten as to the provocation of his pen. From Salem to Bowdoin College, and through Lenox and Concord, Salemite John Hardy Wright trails the famous author to his old accustomed chambers and reveals the inspiration behind an American literary legend.".

About this Item: Arcadia Publishing, United States, 1998. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. By the beginning of the twentieth century, picturesque Provincetown incorporated in 1727 was no longer one of the major seaports of Massachusetts involved in the whaling industry. The fishing industry was still going strong due to the hard-working Portuguese fishermen, but commercial interests looked towards tourism as they had in many other towns and cities. Where once fishing shacks and warehouses dotted the shoreline off Commercial Street, comfortable and well-appointed guesthouses and restaurants emerged to support the growing numbers of day-trippers (many of whom arrived by ferry from Boston) and vacationers who were discovering this charming town at the very tip of Cape Cod. Tourists had visited Provincetown early on. Henry David Thoreau made three walking trips on Cape Cod around 1850, but it was not until the turn of the century that artists, followed by playwrights, authors, and musicians, realized they could live inexpensively in a community that fostered creativity. The artistic and literary culture of Provincetown was enhanced by hangers-on who enjoyed the Bohemian lifestyle. Counter-culture hippies of the 1960s blended in with the colorful personalities of those individuals who came to P-town to pursue an alternative lifestyle. Gays and Lesbians have transformed many aspects of the town both architectural and cultural in its evolution from a fishing village to a popular and prosperous year-round resort community. Provincetown Volume I, published in 1997, focuses on the architecture and social history of this atypical town. This eagerly anticipated sequel features views of the shore, harbor, and ocean, the whaling and fishing industries, art and artists, playwrights and authors, entertainers, and alternative lifestyles.

About this Item: Arcadia Publishing, United States, 1999. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. In Sorcery in Salem, local author John Hardy Wright examines the witchcraft delusion that afflicted Salem Village and Salem Town in the winter of 1691 92. Twenty inhabitants lost their lives at that time; nineteen were hanged on Gallows Hill, and one elderly man, Giles Cory, by remaining mute as a personal protest to the proceedings of the court, was pressed to death under heavy weights. Once the prosecuting examinations began on March 1, 1692, local authorities were uncertain what course the following trials would take. Spectral evidence, in which the shape of a suspected witch tortured people, was a primary indication of guilt, as was the touch test, in which a victim was released from the witch s power upon the laying on of hands. Not being able to correctly recite the Lord s Prayer was also damning.". Seller Inventory # AAC9780738500843

About this Item: Arcadia Publishing, United States, 1996. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Marblehead, Massachusetts, is a proud community steeped in history, and many fine images of its past still survive today. Paintings from the colonial period and engravings from the mid-nineteenth century complement the town s photographic record, which begins around 1865. In Marblehead Volume I, historian John Hardy Wright has brought together many of these images for the first time in a published work. This illuminating pictorial history focuses on the history of Marblehead from 1629 to 1940, and describes many of the community s fascinating architectural, topographical, and human elements. Even today this early New England fishing town presents visitors with evidence of its heritage, in everything from historic homes to a general sense of Yankee pride.".

Loose the latchstring and peer into the places whereNathaniel Hawthorne passed back and forth from nineteenth century New England to the fertile country of his imagination. The historic images in this pictorial biography many by famed Salem photographer Frank Cousins might not inspire readers to the same literary genius as the celebrated author, but the dim and dusky grandeur lingering in his favorite haunts will no doubtenlighten as to the provocation of his pen. From Salem to Bowdoin College, and through Lenox and Concord, Salemite John Hardy Wright trails the famous author to his old accustomed chambers and reveals the inspiration behind an American literary legend.".
