Synopsis

Chesapeake Bay Walk is an introduction to the interesting plants and animals young readers can find in and around the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. With outstanding illustrations and concise text geared for children ages four through nine, the book beckons youngsters and their parents to learn by exploring the estuarine environment. On a stroll through its pages, they can see soft-bellied bullies, crabs older than dinosaurs, and ââ¬Åbaldâ⬠five-year-olds. Chesapeake Bay Walk guides readers along the bay's different shoreline habitats: beach, mudflat, pier, marsh, and shallows. It features an explanation of the food chain that is easy for this age group to understand, a tour of the changing seasons, and a checklist for youngsters to use to keep track of their discoveries. Early readerâages 5-8.

The founding of Schiffer Publishing was a gradual process started when the research for Chester County, Pennsylvania, Inventories 1684-1850, by Margaret Schiffer, was discovered in a box in a basement in 1973. The study had been made at the Chester County Historical Society in West Chester, Pennsylvania for the author's personal interest. She had also published Furniture and its Makers of Chester County, Pennsylvania with the University of Pennsylvania Press in 1966. But when the inventory research was discovered, it seemed to the author's son Peter, who was an antiques dealer with his father Herbert, and to Peter's wife Nancy, who was a historical museum curator, that the information the research contained would be of interest to their clients for historical interpretation of antique furniture and accessories used in Chester County. Schiffer Publishing was started in 1974 to mimeograph, ring bind, and distribute that book, and to bring out-of-print historical books about antiques back into circulation. About the same time, Herbert and Peter had written a book about Chinese export porcelain, which they handled in the antiques business, and had sent the manuscript to a small publisher. When that publisher went out of business, before their book was completed, Schiffer Publishing took it on as another project.
