Description
A curator of the collection of the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities, Nancy Carlisle here presents more than 175 visually striking objects in large color photos, examining their roles as beloved treasures in people's lives and telling sometimes poignant stories of their owners, both famous and forgotten. These objects—from Edward Burne-Jones' elegant portrait of young Sara Norton to the jewel-like sewing kit of Abigail Quincy, housed in a tiny, jointed fish of silver—offer an evocative historical perspective as well, evoking tales of childhood and family, slaves and slave traders, entrepreneurs and ne'er-do-wells, mariners and patriots.
