Purdue at 150: A Visual History of Student Life
Purdue at 150: AVisual History of Indiana's Land-Grant University by David M. Hovde, Adriana Harmeyer, Neal Harmeyer, and Sammie L. Morris tells Purdue's story through rare images, artifacts, and words. Authors culled decades of student papers, from scrapbooks, yearbooks, letters, and newspapers to historical photographs and memorabilia preserved in the Purdue University Libraries Virginia Kelly Karnes Archives and Special Collections. Many of the images and artifacts included have never been published, presenting a unique history of Purdue University from the student perspective. Purdue at 150 is organized by decade, presenting a scrapbook-like experience of viewing over 400 rare photographs, documents, and artifacts alongside critical contextual information. Each chapter provides a decadal historical sketch of Purdue University, offering insight into the institution's unique culture while incorporating campus responses to major national events such as world wars and the Great Depression. Spotlight sections highlight Purdue firsts, including the first graduates of programs, the growth and development of the international student population at Purdue, the creation of significant student organizations, and the foundations of both old and new campus traditions. This curated journey through the personal experiences,spaces, and events of Purdue's history not only celebrates major accomplishments and acknowledges the contributions Purdue has made to society, but it also explores some of the challenges and tragedies that shaped Indiana's land-grant university. As a result, Purdueat 150 connects the identity and character of the University of 1869 to the University of 2019 and beyond, as told through the stories of its students. Running throughout this journey is the enduring vision of the land-grant institution and its impact on society, as seen through the material culture of Boiler makers from around the world.

Before They Were famous
We see famous faces every day: campaign shoots, promotional pictures, and paparazzi photos plaster the pages of print and digital media. But how did these well-known personalities present in front of the camera before they made it big, becoming the highly-recognized celebrities of today? In Before They Were Famous, David Drebin has rummaged through his archive to curate some of his best pictures of today's most familiar faces. Whether Charlize Theron before her Oscar win, John Legend before he stormed the charts, or Steve Jobs just before the introduction of the legendary first iPod, David Drebin photographed them all on their path to fame. With this captivating line up, the New York City-based multidisciplinary artist not only offers an intimate and original look at now world-famous celebrities, but also shares his own career beginnings presenting images before they were sold out or close to be sold out. These limited edition photographs were all created before Drebin, too, became famous, providing a unique and rare document of his own creative journey. Alongside the portraits, the book also shows original works, from femmes fatales to landscapes, which would come to define his practice and are today sold as limited edition photographs in the finest galleries worldwide.

A-Z of Cambridge: Places-People-History
The city of Cambridge is justly renowned for its world-famous university, but its history encompasses much more. Lying just south of the Fens in East Anglia it has been an important town in the region since the Middle Ages and today it is a rapidly growing centre for the most advanced high-tech industries. A-Z of Cambridge is a readable yet factual alternative history of the city, revealing the stories behind Cambridge's streets, buildings and people. It brings to life the centuries-old rivalry between town and gown, and tells the tale of how the city's residents and its university population have shaped the Cambridge of the twenty-first century. All aspects of Cambridge's history are included, from books, with one of Britain's oldest chained libraries at Trinity Hall and Samuel Pepys' original diary at his old college at Magdalene, to oysters, sold at the largest fair in medieval Europe, once held every year on Stourbridge Common. Famous residents have also left their mark, not least Sir Isaac Newton - apple trees in the city are said to be derived from the original tree under which the mathematician sat when he formulated his theory of gravity. This quirky A-Z guide to the history of the city is fully illustrated with colour photography and will appeal to all those with an interest in Cambridge.

Nottingham Pubs
Nottingham has long been famed for its pubs. In the Middle Ages the city was already a prosperous centre of trade for the East Midlands, and three of its pubs date from this era - Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, the Salutation and The Bell Inn. The city continued to grow during the Industrial Revolution, attracting many new industries such as lace making, bicycle manufacture and tobacco, and many new pubs were opened. The city continues to thrive and is today the largest city in the East Midlands. In Nottingham Pubs, author Dave Mooney takes the reader on a fascinating journey through some of the city's most interesting, oldest or most famous watering holes, following nine walks around different parts of Nottingham and nearby areas, including Kimberley, which was home to one of Britain's largest independent breweries until its closure in 2006. Many of the pubs have retained features and traditions of previous ages, and the variety of Nottingham's pubs today is revealed here, including the characters that have frequented or run the public houses, for which Nottingham is justly renowned.

Secret Ramsgate
The seaside town of Ramsgate in Kent developed as an important port in medieval England, associated with the Cinque Port of Sandwich. Close to the Continent, its harbour was a major embarkation point for the Napoleonic Wars and during the Dunkirk evacuation in the Second World War. In the nineteenth century Ramsgate became popular as a seaside resort, and was the home of architect A. W. Pugin, who built several buildings in the town, and later Vincent van Gogh lived and worked as a teacher in Ramsgate. Today Ramsgate is the major fishing port on the Kent coast and also attracts visitors to its large marina and beaches. In this book author Andy Bull reveals the hidden history of Ramsgate, from the landing of Roman invasion forces, St Augustine's mission to bring Christianity to this country, the famous writers who lived in or regularly visited the town such as Wilkie Collins, Jane Austen, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels and how the future Queen Victoria almost died here and the crucial role of a Ramsgate doctor in saving her life, to the country's only royal harbour, the secret harbour built at Richborough to transport munitions during the First World War and the vast network of tunnels built to shelter 60,000 people during the Second World War. With tales of remarkable characters, unusual events and buildings lost or hidden, and fully illustrated throughout, Secret Ramsgate will appeal to all those with an interest in the history of this Kentish town.

A-Z of Kingston upon Thames: Places-People-History
The history of the ancient town of Kingston upon Thames goes back to Anglo-Saxon times, and two Saxon kings were crowned there. Historically in Surrey, it has been an important crossing point for the River Thames for centuries and although the town is now part of Greater London, it retains its separate identity despite the massive growth of population in the area. Kingston also has a proud industrial past, being associated with military aircraft design and manufacture by famous names such as Sopwith, Hawker and Hawker Siddeley and British Aerospace. In A-Z of Kingston upon Thames author Julian McCarthy reveals the fascinating and often quirky history behind Kingston upon Thames, its streets and buildings and people connected with the town. Alongside the famous historical connections, he includes some unusual characters, such as Dr Battie, famous for his studies of insanity and arguably the origin of the term `being batty', and Dr Daniel Biddle and T. Clarke, aviation pioneers. Tucked- away places are featured, as well as lesser-known associations, for example, with father and son land and water speed record holders Sir Malcolm and Donald Campbell, and the unusual such as the use of the Cucking Stool and the annual Shrove Tuesday football match. This fully illustrated A-Z of Kingston upon Thames history will appeal to all, especially those with an interest in this historical town.

Legendary Artists and the Clothes They Wore
Whether it's Cecil Beaton's flamboyant, classically tailored suits, Frida Kahlo's love of bright color, or Cindy Sherman's penchant for minimalism, an artist's attire often reflects the creative and spiritual essence of his or her work. In Legendary Artists and the Clothes They Wore, fashion authority Terry Newman presents more than forty fully illustrated profiles of masters whose enduring art bears an idiosyncratic stamp-and whose unique way of dress does the same through a signature look, hairstyle, or accessory-and explores the relationship between the two in detail. In that context, this colorful volume also examines the nonlinear sensibility that has always been the name of the game in what is considered modern style. It examines the dialogue between art and fashion as well as noteworthy artist and designer relationships, such as Yves Saint Laurent's Mondrian Collection, primary-colored shift dresses inspired by the painter's work, and Louis Vuitton's numerous groundbreaking collaborations with major artists, a concept initiated by designer Marc Jacobs that not only has launched some of the fashion industry's most successful bags, made the art of contemporary masters available to the world at large, and been copied widely ever since. Numerous compelling features-anecdotes about the artists and their work; portraits of the artists in their studios; archival photographs; select pairings of fine art and runway imagery; quotations by artists, art critics, and designers-make this a rich, engaging study for fashion and art lovers alike.

Swindon in 50 Buildings
Swindon's unusual history as a large industrial town in the heart of Wiltshire has defined its townscape for the last 200 years. The town is largely the creation of the nineteenth century, built around the Great Western Railway's Works, but it nonetheless has over 600 listed buildings, not to mention scheduled monuments and three registered parks and gardens. In Swindon in 50 Buildings, local author Angela Atkinson examines not only such well-known Swindon landmarks and areas as the GWR Railway Village Conservation Area and the Old Town, but also everyday buildings that reveal aspects of Swindon's always fascinating and surprising story. It is inevitable that many of the buildings in this book reflect Swindon's great railway heritage, but others are small stories written in brick and stone that tell of a time before the railway came and changed everything. There are farmhouses now engulfed by twentieth-century housing estates and grander buildings such as Lydiard House. Rebuilt in the eighteenth century with a formal park, the Lydiard estate served as both an American army camp and prisoner of war camp during the Second World War. The story continues to the present day with buildings designed by such well-known architects as Hugh Casson, the creator of the Wyvern Theatre, and Norman Foster, architect of the landmark and award-winning Spectrum Building. It includes, too, the most recent of Swindon's additions to the listed building's register - and it's one that will surprise you.

50 Finds from Berkshire: Objects from the Portable Antiquities Scheme
Every year thousands of archaeological artefacts are discovered by the public, mostly through metal detecting but also while digging in the garden or while out walking the dog in the countryside. Since first coming to Berkshire in 2003, the British Museum's Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS) has recorded nearly 10,000 archaeological artefacts from the county, all of which have been found by the public. The Royal County of Berkshire has a long and rich archaeological heritage. Hoards of ancient gold coins or richly furnished Saxon burials may easily capture the imagination, but it is the more mundane, everyday objects that are often more informative and valuable to archaeologists trying to understand our past. Recording these objects enables us to build a picture of past land use and commerce across millennia, and ensures that when we have gone, the information these objects provide is not lost for future generations. From ancient flint tools and Roman brooches to Saxon gold and medieval vessels, voices from Berkshire's deep past are being heard once again. Covering all periods of human history and every corner of the county, 50 Finds from Berkshire highlights some of the best archaeological artefacts found by ordinary members of the public and recorded with the Scheme.

Secret Forest of Dean
Gloucestershire's majestic Forest of Dean lies within a triangle between the River Severn on its east side and the famous Wye Valley on its west. Evidence of the first humans here is provided by the presence of megalithic standing stones from the Bronze Age; several hillforts survive from the Iron Age; and there are numerous signs of Roman occupation as they set about exploiting the area's natural reserves, iron-smelting and coal mining. In the medieval period, the Forest was used mainly as a royal hunting ground. By the seventeenth century, however, it was primarily used to provide timber for the ships of the Royal Navy. It was in this century, too, that the district became the setting for military activity and conflict during Civil War. From the eighteenth century, coal mining grew rapidly, providing employment for many. For most of the district's inhabitants, however, the Forest was a place of toil, danger and grinding poverty. A network of tramroads and railways through the Forest was created in the nineteenth century. As the twentieth century progressed, the economic mining of Forest coal became less viable, and by the mid-1960s the last of the big pits had closed. Most of the Forest's railway lines, too, have closed. Today the district is a popular base for visitors seeking to explore the ancient Forest and neighbouring Wye Valley. Secret Forest of Dean picks out significant aspects of the area's history and landscape and explores its lesser-known episodes and characters.

Life Between the Levees: America's Riverboat Pilots
Life Between the Levees is a chronicle of first-person reflections and folklore from pilots who have dedicated their lives to the river. The stories are as diverse as the storytellers themselves, and the volume is full of drama, suspense, and a way of life a landlubber could never imagine. Although waterways and ports in the Mississippi corridor move billions of dollars of products throughout the US and foreign markets, in today's world those who live and work on land have little knowledge of the river and the people who work there. In ten years of interviewing, Melody Golding collected over one hundred personal narratives from men and women who worked and lived on brown water, our inland waterways. As photographer, she has taken thousands of photos, of which 130 are included, of the people and boats, and the rivers where they spend their time. The book spans generations of river life-the oldest pilot was born in 1917 and the youngest in 1987-and includes stories from the 1920s to today. The stories begin with the pilots who were broke in by early steamboat pilots who were on the river as far back as the late 1800s. The early pilots in this book witnessed the transition from steamboat to diesel boat, while the youngest grew up in the era of GPS and twenty-first-century technology. Among many topics, the pilots reflect movingly on the time spent away from home because of their career, a universal reality for all mariners. As many pilots say when they talk about the river, I hate her when I'm with her, and I miss her when I'm gone.

Abandoned Palaces
Built to last, built to impress, built with style and grandeur - it is all the more remarkable when the most ostentatious of buildings fall into disrepair and become ruins. From imperial residences and aristocratic estates to hotels and urban mansions, Abandoned Palaces tells the stories behind dilapidated structures from all around the world. From ancient Roman villas to the French colonial hill station in Cambodia that was one of the final refuges of the Khmer Rouge, the book charts the fascinating decline of what were once the homes and holiday resorts of the most wealthy. Ranging from crumbling hotels in the Catskill Mountains or in Mozambique to grand mansions in Taiwan, and from an unfinished Elizabethan summerhouse to a modern megalomaniac's estate too expensive ever to be completed, the reasons for the abandonment of these buildings include politics, bankruptcy, personal tragedies, natural and man-made disasters, as well as changing tastes and fashions. With 150 outstanding colour photographs exploring more than 100 hauntingly beautiful locations, Abandoned Palaces is a brilliant and moving pictorial examination of worlds we have left behind.

Power and Majesty: The plight and preservation of the African Elephant
The first book by wildlife photographer and writer Larry Laverty, Power and Majesty features extraordinary images and informative text that capture the life of African elephants. The book focuses on these majestic animals and features stunning photographs from the most remote corners of Africa, from the savannahs and deserts to the rivers and jungles. The text introduces various elephant habitats, explores the magical qualities of elephants, and underscores the immense challenges they face for survival in a world dominated by humans. The photographs and information showcased in this book will help increase our appreciation and understanding of the African elephant's significant place in the animal kingdom, and Larry Laverty will be donating all of his profits to this worthy cause. Their abilities to love, to remember, to function as families, and to survive under some of the harshest conditions will change the way we think about elephants, with the hope that this knowledge will encourage more people to help save those who remain in the wild.
