VG (Slight edge wear to dj. ) Crimson cloth, gilt letters on spine, cream & red & BW illus. dust jacket, 344 pp., 27 BW illus. Issued in conjunction with a 1986 exhibition. "Francis Calley Gray (1790-1856) is remembered today primarily as the donor to Harvard of an exceptional collection of prints, which later formed the nucleus of the Fogg Art Museum collection. Yet he led one of the most cultivated and remarkable lives of early 19th-century America....Gray's role as a print collector forms the centerpiece of this, the first biography of the archetypal Boston intellectual. In exploring Gray's vision for America and the role art was destined to play in it, Cohn presents a vivid and fascinating picture of the developing ideas, tastes, and cultural aspirations of the young nation."
