Tashjian, Dickran and Ann. Memorials for Children of Change: The Art of Early New England Stonecarving. Wesleyan University Press 1974. 309p, ca. 160 ills. Very good hardcover (top page corners bumped) in very good d.j. ** Revisionist interdisciplinary study of 17th- and 18th-century New England gravestones not only in a religious context but also in relation to "contemporaneous art forms, such as portraiture, cabinet-making, needlework, and the writing of broadside elelgies and funeral sermons." Beautifully designed and produced, with all the look of a Meriden Gravure or Stinehour book though no printer is credited.
