Worldly Goods by Jack L. Lindsey

A new-in-the-shrink-wrap copy of the first comprehensive survey of the arts of early Pennsylvania and the
surrounding region. The book contains a fully illustrated checklist of some 500 objects and works of art, most
published here for the first time. The book is based on the exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art October
1999-January 2000.

The decorative and fine arts of this early period in Pennsylvania and the surrounding region - from samplers and
teapots to high chests and portraits - are explored in detail for the first time in this fully illustrated exhibition
catalogue. Surveys the ethnically diverse artisans and society that produced these objects during the initial
settlement of Pennsylvania, as well as the objects themselves. The authors make clear the prominent role
Pennsylvania played in Colonial America as it evolved into an international cultural force.

A fantastic book.
