7 Bowden, WittIndustrial Society in England Towards the End of the Eighteenth Century
New York: The Macmillan Company, 1925

1st. Hardcover. Fine, 
lacking dust jacket.

This work is concerned with the period of English history when changes were going on which have commonly been described by the term industrial revolution. There is no agreement, however, even among historians, as to the meaning of the phrase. There is a tendency to use the term in connection with a long succession of historical events, with a continuing process that is in reality evolutionary in character. Chapters include: The Age of Invention; The Triumph of the Machine; The Great Industrialists; and The Industrial Workers.

11 Bryant, James C.The Mirador Room: Memories of an Era, 1939-1998
Atlanta, GA: Capital City Club, 1999

1st. Soft cover. Near Fine, 
two faint stains on the back cover and slight rubbing at the top and bottom edges.

An important and extremely scarce piece of Atlantiana, only 5 copies appear in institutional libraries (per OCLC). This is a history of place, people, and events, richly illustrated in color and black & white photos. The Mirador Room at the Capital City Club in Atlanta was designed in 1939 by Philip Trammel Shutze, legendary architect of the Swan House and many other Atlanta architectural treasures. Shutze's solution to creating a sense of openness in a small windowless room was to surround the room with fifteen mirrors painted in reverse with scenes of Georgia's flora and fauna. Athos Menaboni was chosen to execute the paintings which were finished just a few days before the world premiere of Gone With the Wind. Some guests involved with that movie were among the first to view the paintings at private parties held in the Mirador Room. The Mirador Room was disassembled in 1998 and the majority of the reverse painted mirrors were placed in storage.
