Essex County
  • Author : Jeff Lemire
  • Publisher : Top Shelf Productions
  • Pages : N.a
  • ISBN : 9781603091190
  • Reader Reviews : 36
  • Genre : Comics & Graphic Novels
  • This critically-acclaimed graphic novel was recently chosen as one of Canada Reads' Top 5 Essential Canadian Novels of the Decade! It is also the winner of the American Library Association's Alex Award, the Doug Wright Award, and the Joe Shuster Award. And here's a brand new printing! "A rich tapestry ... Mr. Lemire infuses his characters with vivid details that make them burst to life."-- George Gene Gustines, The New York Times "Jeff Lemire's Essex County trilogy represents one of the most remarkable recent achievements in indie comics: three interlocking graphic novels about the mysteries and melancholy of a small Canadian farming community, rendered in a distinctive style and turned out surprisingly quickly."-- The AV Club "Essex County is a tremendous achievement ... This heartfelt piece of graphic literature surpasses its form to stand as an enduring example of the finest in Canadian literature."-- from the introduction by Darwyn Cooke "The subtle inter-weaving of Jeff Lemire's Essex County Trilogy is brilliant and constantly surprising. The cumulative impact left a lump in my throat."-- Jeff Smith, creator of Bone and RASL "These three books on Canadian lives are individually striking, and cumulatively stunning."-- Paul Gravett, author of Graphic Novels: Stories to Change Your Life "This is the comics medium at its best."-- Booklist (from one of three starred reviews) Where does a young boy turn when his whole world suddenly disappears? What could change two brothers from an unstoppable team into a pair of bitterly estranged loners? How does the work of one middle-aged nurse reveal the scars of an entire community, and can anything heal the wounds caused by a century of deception? Set in an imaginary version of Jeff Lemire's hometown, ESSEX COUNTY is an intimate study of an eccentric farming community, and a tender meditation on family, memory, grief, secrets, and reconciliation. With the lush, expressive inking of a cartoonist at the height of his powers, Lemire draws us in and sets us free.

    Farmers and Fishermen
  • Author : Daniel Vickers
  • Publisher : UNC Press Books
  • Pages : 372
  • ISBN : 9780807839959
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : History
  • Daniel Vickers examines the shifting labor strategies used by colonists as New England evolved from a string of frontier settlements to a mature society on the brink of industrialization. Lacking a means to purchase slaves or hire help, seventeenth-century settlers adapted the labor systems of Europe to cope with the shortages of capital and workers they encountered on the edge of the wilderness. As their world developed, changes in labor arrangements paved the way for the economic transformations of the nineteenth century. By reconstructing the work experiences of thousands of farmers and fishermen in eastern Massachusetts, Vickers identifies who worked for whom and under what terms. Seventeenth-century farmers, for example, maintained patriarchal control over their sons largely to assure themselves of a labor force. The first generation of fish merchants relied on a system of clientage that bound poor fishermen to deliver their hauls in exchange for goods. Toward the end of the colonial period, land scarcity forced farmers and fishermen to search for ways to support themselves through wage employment and home manufacture. Out of these adjustments, says Vickers, emerged a labor market sufficient for industrialization.

    Essex County Overbrook Hospital

  • Publisher : Arcadia Publishing
  • Pages : 128
  • ISBN : 9781467127257
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Architecture
  • Essex County Overbrook Hosptial details the history of this institution which had its beginnings as an asylym. What was founded as the Essex County Lunacy Asylum evolved from a single building on South Orange Avenue to a city within itself in Cedar Grove. It was named the Essex County Overbrook Hospital. Construction began on the hospital's iconic brick buildings in 1896, and they were prominent features on Fairview Avenue for the next 100 years. The facility produced its own food, housed its own police and fire departments, and sustained its own power sources. The Essex County Overbrook Hospital was recognized throughout the world as a leader in psychiatric care. In later years, overcrowding began to plague the institution. However, after the advent of modern psychiatric drugs, many patients were able to be discharged back into the community. In 2007, the buildings were closed, and the hospital was relocated to a newer establishment nearby. The grounds have since been plagued with vandalism and neglect, with a final deal for demolition having been solidified in 2015.

    Wicked Puritans Essex County
  • Author : Tom Juergens
  • Publisher : Arcadia Publishing
  • Pages : 112
  • ISBN : 9781614237914
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : History
  • Wicked Puritans of Essex County is a unique report on Puritan criminality that shatters the stereotype of the Puritan (someone striving, above all, to achieve moral purity). With a ground breaking, eye opening level of detail, this book reveals that a surprising number of Puritans were prone to kick the dog, skip church, disrespect the minister, steal a keg of nails, shortweight your grain, turn swine into your corn, burn your barn, or perform any number of wicked and vicious acts. Lesson learned? The Puritan crowd was not, after all, much different from any other, then or now. Author Tom Juergens may not be the first to drive nails into the coffin of Puritan moral superiority, but he has found a hefty hammer to wield in the record they left behind

    Essex County, Virginia General Index to Deeds No. 2, 1867-1904, Deed Books 52 to 61

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Reference
  • The purpose of this work is to present a single alphabetical index based on the General Index to Deeds No. 2, 1867-1904, that was created in the style known as a Campbell Index. The purpose here is to resequence and validate the index. What typically results from a Campbell Index is a jumble that requires users to flip back and forth between groups of pages throughout the entire index to seek out where various groups are continued elsewhere. This present index is largely made up of entries to deeds, being either: bargain and sales, bills of sale, or trust deeds. Of additional interest may be: bonds for officials (including ministers), marriage contracts, estate divisions, plats, or even Homestead deeds. No bonds are recorded in the deed books after 1892 (Deed Book 56). The index also reflects entries in a book titled Deeds of Release No. 1, which contains only thirty-nine pages of written information. Some deficiencies in the original index have been addressed here. As a result, hundreds of additional index entries were added by the compiler over the original courthouse index. References to plats that did not appear in the original index have been added. 2022, 81/2x11, paper, alphabetical, 252 pp.
