This Week's Acquisitions

Mostly books I picked up in Bermuda, because volumes published there are ridiculously hard to obtain remotely without paying obscene amounts for shipping, plus a review copy and new books by Jill Lepore and Ben Carp:

- The Rich Papers: Letters from Bermuda, 1615-1646: Eyewitness Accounts Sent by the Early Colonists to Sir Nathaniel Rich; edited by Vernon A. Ives (Bermuda National Trust, 1984). Bermuda Book Store.

- Four Centuries of Friendship: America-Bermuda Relations 1609-2009; edited by Marina I. Slayton (Bermuda Maritime Museum Press, 2009). Bermuda Book Store.

- Butler's History of the Bermudas; edited by C.F.E. Hollis Hallett (Bermuda Maritime Museum Press, 2007). Bermuda Book Store.

- The Whites of Their Eyes: The Tea Party's Revolution and the Battle over American History by Jill Lepore (Princeton University Press, 2010). Amazon.

- Defiance of the Patriots: The Boston Tea Party and the Making of America by Benjamin L. Carp (Yale University Press, 2010). Amazon.
