Brewington, M.V.
Shipcarvers of North America.

Barre Barre Publishing Company: 1962.

A well-illustrated study of figurehead and stern decorative carvings and their carvers. "The American woodcarvers, and especially the ship carvers, take their place with the 18th and 19th century painters, engravers, designers and craftsmen who were so important in the development of an indigenous taste in America. Very little is known of most of our carvers and surprisingly few specimens of their work have been preserved in public collections. In this book Mr. Brewington brings to light the development of the art in the United States and Canada (including) a geographical listing of all known American shipcarvers".

Hardcover. 7.5"x11", 173 pages, color frontispiece and 134 b/w illustrations. Light wear.
