Book Review

The Early Artisans & Mechanics of Petersburg Virginia is a lavishly illustrated exploration of one of the South's most historically significant cities. This scholarly yet accessible work examines the story of Petersburg through the records of those who built it--the individual artisans and mechanics that literally made Petersburg what it is today. Here are the enlightening stories and backgrounds of the carpenters, brick-layers, coopers, shoemakers, silversmiths, cabinetmakers, gunsmiths, publishers, bookbinders and so many more, gleaned from newspapers, periodicals, private letters and public records. The Early Artisans & Mechanics is the ultimate historical reference for those interested in Petersburg's roots, early-American society, or their own ancestry. And it's a perfect companion for collectors, dealers and auctioneers.(Page 64) -- The Journal of Antiques and Collectibles, Vol,X No.11 1-2010 The Bookshelf
