Schneider, Eric C.; And Others
These three annotated reading guides were developed for courses offered at the Boston Public Library under the National Endowment for the Humanities Library Learning Program. The first lists 32 selected recent works of major importance covering the areas of colonial society, political structure, and the American Revolution. The 27 titles cited in the second include not only books about Boston architecture, but books about Boston which deal with various of the city's buildings; guidebooks to individual buildings have been excluded. The 31 readings on Boston's artisans and their products are divided into three sections: (1) the topography of the city from 1725 to 1815; (2) the artisan community and the social structure of Boston, focusing on the role of craftsmen in the Revolution and their changing social status; and (3) the crafts of 18th century Boston and some biographical materials on individual artisans.
