9780486468266: A Celebration of Bells (Dover Books on Americana)

The books of Eric Sloane celebrate the time-honored traditions of early America—from the crafting of furniture to the building of barns to the folk wisdom that sustains us—and they're reminders of the heartfelt ties that will forever bind us to these rural arts. Two books, one co-written with Eric Hatch, are combined here in one splendid volume, enhanced by Sloane's delightful illustrations and filled with a treasure trove of lore on a unique subject. Spirited reminders of yesteryear, clamoring bells in all their forms — from sleigh bells to church bells — ring out for America and freedom. In this charmingly illustrated book that begins in ancient times, Sloane and Hatch share their boundless enthusiasm for the subject, covering types, sounds, and famous bells, including the revered Liberty Bell which once heralded the American Revolution, and the world's largest bell — one that never tolled.
