Wesleyan University Press: 2007. 0819568481 / 9780819568489 Reprint Edition with New Introduction. A Garnet Book. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The preeminent study of Connecticut's silvercraft, back in print with a new introduction. Early Connecticut Silver is a catalog of the most significant pieces of silver hollowware made by Connecticut silversmiths between the years 1700 and 1840, as well as representative flatware and other pieces such as swords and Masonic jewels. In all, it constitutes an exhibit that could never be mounted in a single museum, and one that proves the authors' conviction that Connecticut silver is distinctive and worthy of comparison to the more sophisticated contemporary styles associated with the silversmiths of Boston and New York City. Features an introduction by Erin Eisenbarth that brings the coverage up to date, incorporating the research done on this subject since the original publication. The book still includes an introductory essay that defines "the Connecticut school," and an annotated index of silversmiths known to have worked in Connecticut and an index of the marks used by them. The Table of Contents of this book is as follows: List of Illustrations • Preface • Introduction by Erin Eisenbarth • The Connecticut Silversmith • Tradition and Innovation in Connecticut Silver • Illustrations of Hollowware and Selected Flatware • Biographical Notes on the Silversmiths • Index of Marks • Selected Bibliography • Owners of Pieces Illustrated • Picture Credits • Index of Silversmiths Whose Work Is Illustrated. Peter Bohan was professor emeritus of art history at the State University of New York at New Paltz and published several books on American silver and gold. Philip Hammerslough was a private collector and silver enthusiast. Erin Eisenbarth is the Marcia Brady Tucker Curatorial Fellow in American decorative arts at the Yale University Art Gallery. "This book fills a significant niche in the literature on early American silver. Its importance for researchers has only grown since its original publication, and its comprehensiveness makes it an excellent title for scholars and students of the decorative arts."—Donald L. Fennimore, curator emeritus, Winterthur Museum
