Foote, Henry Wilder, et al.
Catalogue of Portraits in the Essex Institute, Salem, Massachusetts. Covering Three Centuries.

Salem The Essex Institute: 1936.

The catalog of more than 400 portraits owned by the Essex Institute, the center of seafaring on the north coast of Massachusetts in the 18th and 19th centuries. Merchants, shipmasters and other well-to-do persons and public officials are all well represented, as is the work of most of the important portrait artists in the area during that time period. The portraits are all fully described, including biographical notes on their subjects. An increasingly uncommon book.

Hardcover. 6.5"x9.5", xii + 306 pages, many b/w plates a little light cover rubbing, but overall a very nice, bright copy.
