In preparing this coffee-table gallery of quilts produced from 1712 to 1930, textile historian Baird gathered from museums and private collections some 70 quilts made primarily by American and British quiltmakers. The book's generous 12" x 12" size affords an ample full-color view of a wide variety of quilts, although in some instances additional closeups of individual quilt detail would have added immensely to the book's value as a textile study aid. In addition to familiar patchwork and applique quilts, lesser-known quilt forms such as fabric inlay, quilted palampores, and embroidered whole cloth quilts are featured. Descriptions of each quilt outline its place in the history of the medium. Recommended for historical textile collections and for general collections where demand warrants.

Each antique quilt featured in this glorious collection fills a 12-by-12-inch page. The earliest ones pictured are from the 1700s; the most current is from 1940. Each quilt has a lively description containing information on construction, type of fabric, ownership, present home, price of fabric, types of stitching, and, of course, size, year, and place where made. Just like in a quilt show, the labels share historical information. This is truly a special book worth adding to active crafts collections. Iva Freeman
