Book Description Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, Williamsburg, Virginia, U.S.A., 1978. Hard Back. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. First Edition. 149 Pages Indexed. Top front board corner is very lightly bumped and previous owner's name inked with two short lines on front endpaper. Beyond this is an As New book with flawless interior text pages. Nineteenth-century coverlets are admired for their artistry. Between 1825 and 1875 professional weavers produced thousands of them, rapidly and economically, with the aid of a loom attachment known as the Jacquard mechanism. This device enabled weavers to experiment with intricate patterns that combined folk and popular motifs. This illustrated book will assist those interested in identifying the maker, provenance, or pattern of a 19th century coverlet and will be a useful biographical book for collectors and curators. The major portion of the book consists of an alphabetical checklist that cites graphical and technical information on over 900 weavers. The introduction synthesizes the information in the checklist and discusses the weavers' backgrounds and the ways in which they lived, as well as the changes the Jacquard mechanism made in their craft. Another section of the book details documented trademarks. A geographic index, a short glossary of terms, and a list of public coverlet collections are also included. Over one hundred photographs, both in black and white and in color, richly illustrate the coverlets and emphasize their inventive details. Contents: Foreword, Short-Title List, Introduction, Checklist Explanation, Checklist, Trademarks, Where To See Coverlets, Glossary, and Bibliography, Size: 8 1/2" X 10 1/2".
