Middleburg, by Kate Brenner and Genie Ford
Another in the “Images of America” series, this brand-new issue deals with the town of Middleburg, Virginia, heart of hunt country in Virginia. The equine set is prominently featured, as are celebrities from Jackie Kennedy to Sheila Johnson, in sepia-toned photographs from the past. There are photos of old buildings, some still extant, others demolished; shots of the famed American-English foxhound competition; and a few reproductions of artwork depicting the area. Noted estates such as Llangollen, Welbourne, Waverly, Huntland, and Ayrshire Farm are also shown. As with other books in the series, text is minimal, focusing on the pictures.
