Bolton, Ethel Stanwood and Coe, Eva Johnston; Dover Publications, New York, reproduction of 1973 Dover edition, an unabridged republication of the work originally published by The Massachusetts Society of the Colonial Dames of America in 1921. Trade Paperback. 416 pages.
A superb collection of American Samplers from the 17th century colonial period to 1830. Beautifully illustrated with 128 examples. There is also a special section on sampler verse, material on verse dates, schools, and styles which might be helpful in establishing correct dates and other information.
