January 1979 books read

I still think it's funny that I remember most of the books, and even their physical qualities, but had completely forgotten keeping this record of reading, using a fountain pen, still, by the way:

James Morris: The World of Venice
Henry James: The Ambassadors
F. R Banks: English Villages
Joseph M. Grant and Lawrence L. Crum: The Development of State-Chartered Banking in Texas: From Predecessor Systems until 1970
Janet Flanner: Paris Was Yesterday
John Holloway: A London Childhood
Zora Neale Hurston: Dirt Tracks on a Road
L. E. Jones: An Edwardian Youth
Robert Gittings: Young Thomas Hardy
Eleanor Dienstag: Whither Thou Goest
Geoffrey Tillotson: A View of Victorian Literature
Willa Cather: Youth and the Bright Medusa
Melvyn Bragg: Who Speaks for England
Bette Howland: Blue in Chicago

James was a re-read, and the books that I don't remember are by Dienstag, Bragg, and Howland, although my vague recollection that the Dienstag book was probably about a trailing spouse and was also perhaps peripherally related to the Stirling Homex matter seems to be confirmed by on-line accounts.
