We're delighted to announce that we'll be taking part in the Attingham Trust Study Programme, "The Horse and the Country House," in England in September. We have in stock some of the books on the program's suggested reading list. A selection of them, plus others that may be of interest, are included in "Featured Books" at the bottom of this page. Quantities are very limited. For other titles related to the program's theme, search by the keyword Attingham, or go to "Browse Horses" and then look through the topics Art, Driving (especially other World on Wheels volumes), Farming, Horses in Society & History, and Hunting. We're happy to ship postpaid to Attingham participants within the United States.

Memorials for Children of Change: Art Early New England Stonecarving
Tashjian, Dickran and Ann

1974. 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. (Item ID: A5588)
