Re: QUERY: Recommendations for literature on indigenous American history in the Chesapeake region

Dear Helen,

In addition to the sources mentioned above (Malinda Maynor Lowery's work is phenomenal!), here are some classic studies of Indigenous sacred traditions in the Chesapeake region during the colonial era:

Patricia Galloway, ed., Southeastern Ceremonial Complex: Artifacts and Analysis (1989)

Charles Hudson and Carmen Chaves Tesser, eds., Forgotten Centuries: Indians and Europeans in the American South, 1521-1704 (1994)

Gregory Waselkov, Peter Wood, and Tom Hatley, eds., Powhatan's Mantle: Indians in the Colonial Southeast (1989/2006, 2nd ed.)

QUERY> A New Chinese Buddhist Canon (Zhōnghuá dàzàng jīng xù biān 中华大藏经续编)

Our librarian just brought a new Chinese publishing project to my attention: Zhōnghuá dàzàng jīng xù biān《中华大藏经续编》being published by 中华书局. The description of the project is as follows:

《中华大藏经(汉文部分).续编》是继《中华大藏经(汉文部分).正编》(共106册,1983-1997年由中华书局出版)编纂出版后,又一个国家重大出版工程项目。《续编》约3亿余字,标点排印,分10部类(印度典籍部、南传典籍部、藏传典籍部、汉传注疏部、汉传撰著部、礼忏部、史传地志部、疑似部、音义目录部、外教部)。《续编》完成后,将与《正编》珠联璧合,成为中国历史上收罗最为广泛、内容最为宏富的汉文佛教典籍宝库。

出版信息提示:本书题名页总题名:中华大藏经续编;图书版权页题名:中华大藏经(汉文部分).续编。全书分29个书号(ISBN),预计出版330册左右,每年出版50-60册,2025年出齐。已出齐“印度典籍部”、“南传典籍部”、“藏传典籍部”,正在出版“汉传注疏部(七)”。每个部类出齐后才会出版下一部类。出版计划见“计划部分”表单。

Re: Expert opinions sought on Turkish/Ottoman women's clothing of 1922 by former academic turned fiction writer

Dear H-Turk community,
I have received wonderfully helpful replies to my questions in this post via email, and I have also received many visitors to my web page (I usually don't!).
Thank you so much for your kindness and interest!

Research query: The Lauterbach House, 2 East 78th Street, NYC

I am interested in the sumptuous mansion that was built and decorated by Edward Lauterbach in 1887 at 2 East 78th Street in Manhattan, with the signifcant (and often noted) involvement of his wife Amanda Friedman Lauterbach. This was one of the more conspicuous "Jewish Palaces" to arise in what was then the most fashionable new neighhborhood in New York and the subject of a lavishly illustrated article in the New York Times Magazine on April 16, 1899.

Expert opinions sought on Turkish/Ottoman women's clothing of 1922 by former academic turned fiction writer

I was referred to your group by one of your colleagues. Thanks so much for admitting me! I have been reading about and viewing historic photographs of Turkish/Ottoman women's clothing in the early 20th century for a historical young adult fiction manuscript I am revising for an interested publisher.

Quick question: Is this 5:15 PM EST? I'm asking because I am in CST and want to make sure I attend at the right time. Thank you! -- Stephanie

Re: QUERY: Recommendations for literature on indigenous American history in the Chesapeake region

Hi Helen,
I would look into work by Malinda Maynor Lowery and also the very recent dissertation of Ashley Minner - UMD, who works on the Lumbee who migrated from NC to Baltimore.
