About this title


Auguste Edouart was the most prolific silhouettist ever to work in this country. Arriving from France in 1839, he traveled throughout the United States contracting enough projects in six years to fill over fifty albums; at the same time he created a biographical record of the most famous Americans of the period.

Not only are the 348 silhouettes here prime examples of the art, but the persons included in this extraordinary gathering were the most distinguished members of their communities, states, and the nation. Included are profiles of four presidents of the United States, five members of the Supreme Court, six state governors, six college presidents, eighteen mayors, six commodores, thirteen generals, thirty state or federal court judges, fifteen authors, and at least twenty-nine physicians. An Appendix contains a "Complete List of 3,800 Silhouette Portraits of American Citizen
