Little, Nina Fletcher.
American Decorative Wall Painting 1700-1850.

New York Studio Publications / Old Sturbridge Village: 1952.

A standard reference work on the subject, which represented an exhaustive effort on the author's part. As Marshall Davidson points out in the Foreword, most of us have gathered, after reading too much Hawthorne, that our Puritan ancestors lived in a brown and gray world as Mrs. Little shows, this was absolutely not the case. An important study of American architecture, decoration, and folk art.

Hardcover. 8.5"x11", 145 pages, b/w and color illustrations, dj jacket rubbed and somewhat worn. Pages with some light rippling.
