Why We Love This

The House in Antigua by Louis Adamic. Harper Brothers. New York, 1937. Stated Third Edition. 300 pp. Hardcover lacking jacket. 32 striking black white photographs. The "Restoration" of Popenoe House, ruined by an earthquake in Antigua and restored in the late 1930s by William Popenoe, an internationally-recognized botanist. A compelling tale of restoration, archaeology, bananas, and Guatemala. Interior clean. Inner boards, endpapers foxed. Covers worn, light spotting.
