Synopsis

From the DJ: "A Vision of Eden, the first collection in book form of Marianne North's fabulously detailed and exotic botanical paintings, also contans excerpts from her autobiography and vivid travel memoirs.... North, who usually traveled alone during the late nineteenth century, was a pioneer both in terms of her lush and wildly colorful artistic style and in the scope of her farflung journeys.."

About ArchersBooks.com

I have been a bookseller since 1986 and closed my shop in 2001 to concentrate on mail order and do some writing. My stock includes a large selection of books on Baseball, True Crime, Ohioana, Botany, Literature, and Music. And I've cowritten two books: Catching Dreams: My Life in the Negro Baseball Leagues with Frazier Robinson (1999) and Jim Tully: American Writer, Irish Rover, Hollywood Brawler with Mark Dawidziak (2011, foreword by Ken Burns). Mark Dawidziak and I have also written introductions to four reissues of Tully's books: Circus Parade (foreword by Harvey Pekar), Shanty Irish (foreword by John Sayles), The Bruiser (foreword by Gerald Early), and Tully's breakthrough book, Beggars of Life.
