Old York (Romance of the Maine Coast - Volume II)

$15.95

Old York was the second of five volumes of the Maine Pioneer Settlements, Romance of the Maine Coast, series, as published by Herbert M. Sylvester. This book was originally published in 1906. Included are the illustrations as were provided in the original work. In his Preface, Sylvester states "This coloring of the early colonial period is unmatchably rich. Many of these old houses are as perfect in their conditions, as pregnant with responsibilities, as in the days of those who knew them first and loved them best. Others have lapsed into senility; their chimneys hang askew, like an old battered hat. Their low-drooping eaves sag like the shoulders of an old man in the last stages of decreptitude. Others yet have fallen supinely in their decay into the caverns they so long concealed, or have shrivelled into gray ashes, in the catastrophe of a defective chimney, and not one of them all without its tradition. Let us repeople these old mansions, leaving out the ghosts. Let the old brass knocker fall here and there between its carved lintels. It is the gentle way, and it is a gentle folk by whom we are likely to be entertained, and who know nothing of modernness, and who perhaps are fortunate in that respect; for social conventions are largely of the nineteenth century, along with ragtime, cake-walks, and the two-step." Other books in this series are: Olde Cascoe, The Sokoki Trail, Olde Pemaquid and The Land of St. Castin. 6x9, softcover, 247 pages. ISBN: 9781935573074.
