Why We Love This

Polk: The Man Who Transformed the Presidency and America by Walter R. Borneman. NY: Random House, 2008. Book Club Edition. 422 pages. Hardcover with dust jacket. James K. Polk served only four years, pre-Civil War, and has been overshadowed by the events that followed. But he was a strong president who accomplished many reforms: a biography that fills in the gaps.

About librarylions

Julie Goldman has been collecting books all her life. As a child, she spent many days haunting the used book stores on 4th Avenue in NYC with her father. Most collectors become booksellers out of necessity, and Goldman began selling about 15 years ago. The library lions are the pair of stone lions who guard the New York Public Library. Their names are Patience and Fortitude. When you place an order with librarylions it will receive the attention and treatment it deserves.
