Early Connecticut silver, 1700-1840
by Peter J Bohan; Philip Hammerslough; Erin Eisenbarth is now available. It is a reprint of the 1970 edition with a new introduction by Erin Eisenbarth. It is in paperback with a new cover picture. This time the bowl found on page 30 of the first edition is on the cover. I wonder how many more older books will be reprinted. Perhaps the availability of these books at a reasonable price with gather in new collectors.

Last week I came upon an interesting book last week entitled “The Albert Collection” by Robin Butler. The book shows aver 700 items of British and European silver covering a time span of five hundred years that were collected by a Londoner. The collector is anonymous and from the text I gather that he or she is either deceased or incapacitated. The collection is very interesting and the commentary is informative. The author tends to treat the collector as a waiter treats a customer in a restaurant – countless compliments on the great and exquisite taste of the buyer. I think waiters must be trained to compliment diners and I guess it has rubbed off on authors of silver books. That is a small point however as the book really does show a fascinating collection.
This Albert Collection review is useful; but I find it puzzling that the reviewer, without knowing the collector, can infer motives for the various purchases.
