An Oak Spring Pomona is the second in a series of catalogues describing selections of rare books and other material in the Oak Spring Garden Library, a collection formed by Mrs. Paul Mellon. The Pomona describes one hundred books and manuscripts about fruit, with illustrations taken from some of the most beautiful books on the subject as well as from original drawings and paintings. The earliest book described is Bussatos Giardino di Agricoltura of 1592, the latest The Herefordshire Pomona, an encyclopedia of apples and pears from the 1870s. In between there are fruit books large and small: La Quintinie's Instruction pour les Jardins fruitiers, Duhamel's Traite des arbres fruitiers, and many others. The book is divided into sections on fruit-growing in France and Britain, fruit elsewhere in Europe, and fruit in America, as well as citrus fruit, apples and pears, peaches and soft fruit, grapes, melons, and tropical fruit. Each description gives the background of the book and its relationship to others and is accompanied by illustrations of its contents in color and black and white. The Pomona includes not only brief bibliographical summaries of each book but also background wssays that place the books in a historical setting.

Who is an apostle? While the New Testament seems to only include Paul with the Twelve, many passages expand the meaning. It is that expanded meaning that Phyllis Zagano uses to name twelve apostles from the twentieth century, with the hope that by examining their lives others will be encouraged to live similarly. In Twentieth-Century Apostles, Zagano explains that many apostles never received their commission directly from Jesus in the flesh, but were both called and sent by the living Jesus in their souls. Like Paul, they never claimed to be apostles, but their right to be known as such is based on their living the common characteristics of an apostle: personal election by Jesus and personal experience of the living Jesus, in life (as with the Twelve) or in the resurrection (as with Paul). They proclaim the risen Lord and carry on the tradition. They are the basic constitutive elements of the Church. Zagano selects twelve apostles from the twentieth century whose lives and writings portray both their deep relationship with God and their intense involvement with the world around them. In Twentieth-Century Apostles she examines those lives and writings by devoting a chapter to each of the twelve apostles she has selected Charles de Foucald, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Giovanni Battista Montini (Pal VI), Dorothy Day, Jessica Powers, Franz Jägerstätter, Teresa of Calcutta, Thomas Merton, Roger of Taiz é,Oscar Romero, Jean Vanier, and Thea Bowman. The apostles in Twentieth-Century Apostles span this century, as historical records of our progress and as predictors of times to come. Called and sent, they lead us all in lives of prayer and service.

A Sherwood Bonner Sampler 1869 1884

The Mississippi-born author Katharine Sherwood Bonner McDowell (1849-1883) has long been recognized as one of the pioneers in dialect fiction, but she and her work faded from memory as literary tastes shifted away from this popular nineteenth-century genre. Although her career was cut short by her early death, Bonner left a significant body of published work, most of it buried in periodical archives. This book, which adds significantly to the current resurgence of interest in Bonner, brings back into print much of the author's best writing and will acquaint modern readers with her astute and witty observations about America's centennial era. A Sherwood Bonner Sampler includes regional and European travel columns, historical/autobiographical sketches set in Mississippi, profiles of national celebrities, children's stories, an extended satiric poem about prominent Bostonians, touching personal lyrics, and a variety of short fiction ranging from romantic melodrama to regional realism. Her reports from Reconstruction era Boston reveal a fascinating perspective on postwar sectional differences, while later stories introduce settings along the Louisiana Gulf Coast, in the Tennessee mountains, and in the southern Illinois farm country. In addition, an appendix reproduces the response poem from the Radical Club celebrities, the targets of her infamous satire. Anne Gowdy's introductory essay places the pieces within historical, biographical, literary, and cultural context. Although much of Bonner's writing retains the power to inform and entertain in and of itself, Gowdy's annotations identify events and personages who might be unfamiliar to modern readers, show connections with other writings by Bonner and some of her contemporaries, and identify quotations and allusions. The result is a volume that makes a signal contribution to the ongoing rediscovery and reappraisal of American authors--in particular, one talented writer whom literary history, until now, has too lightly estimated and too narrowly classified. The Editor: Anne Razey Gowdy is assistant professor of English at Tennessee Wesleyan College. She has published articles on Sherwood Bonner and other nineteenth-century writers.
