About this Item

292 pages. Hardcover. New book. BOOKS ON BOOKS. An expanded version of two of the author's previous publications, this bibliography covers a broad range of books on art in early America, including not only art treatises and instruction manuals but all books related to drawing, painting, engraving, sculpture, artist biography and the history of art. The bibliography covers art books up to 1815, the year that Thomas Jefferson sold his extensive book collection to the U.S. government to form a new Library of Congress. One hundred and eighty-three titles are included in the checklist, each with a full bibliographic description, followed by full catalogue references of the booksellers and/or libraries that listed the book. The checklist is followed by five appendices, listing the books by date of first catalogue reference, by the order of catalogue references, by library and bookseller in order of earliest reference and in order of collection size, and by the eighteenth-century American artist who read them. The books are also indexed by checklist number. This bibliography will be a useful tool for students and scholars of book collecting, art and American culture in general. Janice G. Schimmelman is a professor in the Department of Art and Art History at Oakland University. She has previously published two articles on this topic: "A Checklist of European Treatises on Art and Essays on Aesthetics Available in America Through 1815" in Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society and "Books on Drawing and Painting Techniques Available in Eighteenth-Century American Libraries and Bookstores" in Winterthur Portfolio: A Journal of American Material Culture. (Key Words: Art, Early America, Bibliography, Janice G. Schimmelman, Books on Books, Aesthetics, Instruction, Colonial America, Bookstores, Libraries). Bookseller Inventory # 45251X4
