The Stephen Decatur House: A History

Tudor Place: Americaí s Story Lives Here

by James Tertius deKay, Michael Fazio, Osborne Mackie, and Katherine Malone≠ France

Edited by Leslie Buhler

Official White House China: From the 18th to the 21st Centuries by William G. Allman

A celebrity for his heroics in the Barbary Wars and the War of 1812, Commodore Stephen Decatur built a home ìfi t for fi ne entertainingî in 1818. This volume chronicles the history of the house in four partsó a biography of Stephen Decatur and his naval accom≠ plishments; an architectural history; a study of the fi ne and decorative arts collection; and an essay on the evolution of the house from private home to his≠ toric site. Osborne Mackie will be available to sign books.

Two grand houses were under construction in the young Federal City in 1816: one the Presidentí s House, undergoing reconstruction after it was burned by the British in 1814, and the other Tudor Place, an elegant mansion rising on the heights above Georgetown. This lavishly illustrated book, the fi rst defi nitive history of the house and its collection, explores its rooms, gardens, archival collections, and rare artifacts.

For the presidents, a basic component of offi cial entertaining has always been the dinner table. This book features more than two centuries of the elegant china used for offi cial White House entertaining and private dining that survives as a touchstone of the American presidency. As this book conveys, assembled together, the presiden≠ tial china in the White House comprises a muse≠ um collection of unequaled historic signifi cance.

by William Seale

A Garden for the President explores not only the relationship between the White House and its landscape but also the evolution of its design; the public and private uses of the grounds in peace and wartime; and the cultivation of the grounds with a focus on the specimen trees, vegetable and orna≠ mental gardens, and conservatories.

Lafayette Square, just across Pennsylvania Ave≠ nue from the White House, was once the most fashionable neighborhood in Washington. His≠ torian William Seale re≠ creates what it felt like to live across from the White House and the ways in which political leaders and their fami≠ lies were in daily communication. The authorí s son Will Seale III, narrator of the audiobook, will be available to discuss this title.

To Live on Lafayette Square Society and Politics in the Presidentí s Neighborhood

by Jonathan Pliska

by William Seale

A Garden for the President explores not only the relationship between the White House and its landscape but also the evolution of its design; the public and private uses of the grounds in peace and wartime; and the cultivation of the grounds with a focus on the specimen trees, vegetable and orna≠ mental gardens, and conservatories.

Lafayette Square, just across Pennsylvania Ave≠ nue from the White House, was once the most fashionable neighborhood in Washington. His≠ torian William Seale re≠ creates what it felt like to live across from the White House and the ways in which political leaders and their fami≠ lies were in daily communication. The authorí s son Will Seale III, narrator of the audiobook, will be available to discuss this title.

ART IN THE WHITE HOUSE by William Kloss The collection of fi ne art at the White House belongs to the nation but, like the house itself, serves a domestic, even personal, purpose, for each fi rst family. It was not until the Kennedy administration that the collection was formally and permanently established. Since that time it has grown under the guidance of a professional curatorial staff and it now includes more than 500 works of chiefl y American art.

The Stephen Decatur House: A History

Tudor Place: Americaí s Story Lives Here

by James Tertius deKay, Michael Fazio, Osborne Mackie, and Katherine Malone≠ France

Edited by Leslie Buhler

Official White House China: From the 18th to the 21st Centuries by William G. Allman

A celebrity for his heroics in the Barbary Wars and the War of 1812, Commodore Stephen Decatur built a home ìfi t for fi ne entertainingî in 1818. This volume chronicles the history of the house in four partsó a biography of Stephen Decatur and his naval accom≠ plishments; an architectural history; a study of the fi ne and decorative arts collection; and an essay on the evolution of the house from private home to his≠ toric site. Osborne Mackie will be available to sign books.

Two grand houses were under construction in the young Federal City in 1816: one the Presidentí s House, undergoing reconstruction after it was burned by the British in 1814, and the other Tudor Place, an elegant mansion rising on the heights above Georgetown. This lavishly illustrated book, the fi rst defi nitive history of the house and its collection, explores its rooms, gardens, archival collections, and rare artifacts.

For the presidents, a basic component of offi cial entertaining has always been the dinner table. This book features more than two centuries of the elegant china used for offi cial White House entertaining and private dining that survives as a touchstone of the American presidency. As this book conveys, assembled together, the presiden≠ tial china in the White House comprises a muse≠ um collection of unequaled historic signifi cance.
