FARE THEE WELL

Subtitled: ""A Backward Look at Two Centuries of Historic American Hostelries, Fashionable Spas and Seaside Resorts,"" this book happily evokes the opulence of the past as it traces the development of the good life from tavern to Waldorf. Captured in 600 authentic pictures, engravings, prints, sketches, drawings, cartoons along with a wide variety of topical incidentals such as menus, invitations etc., and accompanied by a text that remains pertinent to the subject combining fact and anecdote in highly readable fashion, this view of our heritage should make a good gift item endorsing the sentiments of those who would hearken back to the ""good old days.
