A Time to Mourn explores in words and pictures the development and decline of urban American mourning customs during the nineteenth century. The seven essays in this book treat nineteenth-century mourning as a subject of social history. The surviving tangible expressions of griefóthe graveyards, silk and wool embroideries, jewelry, paintings and fashionable mourning costumesóare depicted through the abundantly illustrated essays and an extensive catalog of mourning relics.
