VG-(No dj; otherwise clean. ) Blue cloth, blue & illus. dust jacket, 256 pp., 286 bw plates. "Traces the history of style in American silver, from the lovely, simple seventeenth-century cups and beakers and the marvelously ornamental Baroque and Rococo pieces to the handsome, varied products of the nineteenth century. The successive trends in taste are carefully explored and documented with hundreds of examples, and the masterpieces of each period are discussed in detail, so that the reader quickly sharpens his sensitivity to the styles and his instinct for quality."
