About this Item

The exhibition catalogue for the Philadelphia Museum of Art's 1976 Bicentennial Exhibition covers in exhaustive detail three hundred years of American arts and crafts. The exhibition itself was housed in the museum's Special Exhibition galleries proposed for and constructed for the exhibition, which included some six hundred objects lent by over two hundred individuals and organizations. 38 writers from a variety of institutions provided written materials for the catalogue, describing and commenting on the exhibits, which include outstanding examples of American arts and crafts starting with No. 1, a 1669-74 chart of the Delaware River from the Library of Congress to No. 546, "Restoration Piece #3", 1975, by sculptor Italo Scanga. 9 x 10 1/2 inches, 696 pages in light card covers; over 600 illustrations, a bibliography of frequently cited works and indices works and of artists and makers. Text's top and fore edges show some light foxing, o/w text and covers are clean and unmarked, tight and square, with no more than a touch of surface and edgewear. An indispensible reference/study volume for anyone interested in American arts and crafts. [Sorry, given the catalogue's large size and weight, we cannot accept orders from outside the U.S. or orders requiring expedited shipping.]. Bookseller Inventory # 005056
