Colonial Massachusetts Silversmiths and Jewelers
Patricia E. Kane (au); Helen A Cooper (fr)
This massive biographical dictionary presents a thorough study of a group of early American craftsmen. It contains biographies of 296 silversmiths and jewelers who worked in Mass. before the American Revolution, records more than 6,000 examples of their work, and illustrates 424 of their marks. There are brief biographical notes on 93 craftsmen in allied trades, including watchmakers, clockmakers, and engravers, and a section on persons previously misidentified as Mass. silversmiths, as well as essays on silversmiths and their tools, Boston silversmithing and jewelrymaking trades, and other Mass. silversmiths. A glossary of terms relating to tools and craft techniques, 193 additional illus., and an chronology of the craftsmen complete the book.
