Bolton, Theodore.
Early American Portrait Draughtsmen in Crayons.

New York Frederic Fairchild Sherman: 1923. Edition limited to 325 copies.

A pioneering study, which is another way of saying that subsequent research has disproved some of Bolton's conclusions. Bolton identified works by more than 100 American artists working before 1860, and cross-indexes by sitter. The publisher, Frederic Fairchild Sherman (1874-1940), was a well-heeled collector and the editor-publisher of 'Art in America', who also published beautifully-printed, extremely limited edition studies of American art and artists in the 19-teens, 20s and 30s.

Hardcover. 6.5"x9.5", xii + 111 pages, plus 13 b/w plates title page printed in red and black light wear, tips bumped, but a very nice copy.
