Charleston Business on the Eve of the American Revolution
American Maritime History
This study of Charleston (‘the metropolis of the lower South’) offers a detailed description of how business was conducted in an American port before the American Revolution dealt a serious blow to government regulation by Britain and the mercantile system. Originally published in 1934. Slightly off-mint, musty smell due to long storage and no jacket.
Moustaches, Whiskers & Beards
The extravagant whiskers of prominent Victorians such as Charles Darwin and WG Grace seemed impossibly archaic until the recent 'hipster' fashion reinvented the wearing of long beards for young men for the first time since the hippies of the 1960s. This book traces the history of fashions in facial hair from the ancients to the present day.
