The pageant of Benefit Street down through the years

Providence: Ackerman-Standard Press, 1945. First edition, 8vo, pp. 143, [1]; map endpapers, vignette title page and 15 vignette illustrations by the author; nice copy in a slightly spotted dust jacket. In 1931 and 1940 Stillwell wrote pioneering books on incunabula relative to America and American libraries, one of the first women to do so. This very appealing reconstruction of a very literary Providence street was doubtless inspirational in the movement to preserve the heritage and the homes of this area. Item #56195
