Frost, Joseph W.P., et al.
The Heritage of Woodcarving, An Exhibition of Decorative Arts by John Haley Bellamy, Master Ship Carver and Seven Rockland, Maine Carvers.

Rockland William Farnsworth Museum: 1975.

A loan exhibition of Bellamy wood carving which also features the work of six contemporary Maine carvers working in the same general style, which makes for a fascinating medley. The contemporary carvers are Donald H. Brackett, Lucien K. Green, Victor R. Malmstrom, Guy E, Nicholas, Joseph E. Verrill, and Edwin E. Witham. In addition, a 19th century carved eagle by Maine carver George S. Wasson is illustrated. An interesting catalog -not the only reference you will want to have on Bellamy, but worthwhile nonetheless.

Softcover. 11"x8.5", 29 pages, 16 black & white illustrations of Bellamy's work, and 8 black & white illustrations of the work of other carvers. A little light soil, but overall in fine, clean condition.
