About this product
- DescriptionThis title features the earliest kwn images of many Connecticut towns. This charming volume is a collection of ink washes produced by engraver and popular American historian John Warner Barber (1798-1885), each depicting a specific locale in a Connecticut town. In creating these drawings, Barber sought realism, but also to portray the beauty in rural nature and the peacefulness and harmony of small-town life. The drawings, most never published before, are accompanied by contemporary descriptions of the view and buildings, and the changes that have occurred there since the mid-nineteenth century.
