North Carolina architecture by Catherine W Bishir( Book )

7 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This illustrated history displays the wide range of North Carolina's architectural heritage, from colonial times to the beginning of World War II. North Carolina Architecture addresses the state's grand public and private buildings that have become familiar landmarks, but it also focuses on the quieter beauty of more common structures." "Now in a convenient new format, this portable edition of North Carolina Architecture retains all of the text of the original edition as well as hundreds of photographs and other illustrations. Catherine Bishir's narrative analyzes construction and design techniques and locates the structures in their cultural, political, and historical contexts."--Jacket

Crafting lives : African American artisans in New Bern, North Carolina, 1770-1900 by Catherine W Bishir( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the colonial period onward, black artisans in southern cities--thousands of free and enslaved carpenters, coopers, dressmakers, blacksmiths, saddlers, shoemakers, bricklayers, shipwrights, cabinetmakers, tailors, and others--played vital roles in their communities. Yet only a very few black craftspeople have gained popular and scholarly attention. Catherine W. Bishir remedies this oversight by offering an in-depth portrayal of urban African American artisans in the small but important port city of New Bern. In so doing, she highlights the community's often unrecognized importance in the history of nineteenth-century black life"

Crafting Lives: African American Artisans in New Bern by Catherine W Bishir( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the colonial period onward, black artisans in southern cities--thousands of free and enslaved carpenters, coopers, dressmakers, blacksmiths, saddlers, shoemakers, bricklayers, shipwrights, cabinetmakers, tailors, and others--played vital roles in their communities. Yet only a very few black craftspeople have gained popular and scholarly attention. Catherine W. Bishir remedies this oversight by offering an in-depth portrayal of urban African American artisans in the small but important port city of New Bern. In so doing, she highlights the community's often unrecognized importance in the history of nineteenth-century black life. Drawing upon myriad sources, Bishir brings to life men and women who employed their trade skills, sense of purpose, and community relationships to work for liberty and self-sufficiency, to establish and protect their families, and to assume leadership in churches and associations and in New Bern's dynamic political life during and after the Civil War. Focusing on their words and actions, Crafting Lives provides a new understanding of urban southern black artisans' unique place in the larger picture of American artisan identity"--
