The ABC Book of Early Americana by Eric Sloane is a collection of American firsts. These curiosities are vanishing antiquities of American past. Inspired by reverence for calligraphy, Mr Sloane has arranged this beautifully illustrated book as an ABC, decorating each page with his own fine hand-lettering and illustrations that include a brief caption as to the origin and use of each object he pictures.
Craftsmanship and pride in even the smallest details were keynotes of the early American builder and inventor, and this quality if reflected in Eric Sloane's fine artwork.
