The second and annotated edition. No jacket. A few pages faintly foxed. Near fine. 1996 Hard Cover. ix, 294 pp. The annotations which constitute the new material in this second edition are intended to reflect an emerging approach in Shaker studies. This approach examines not only the impressive material culture that this religious and communal society produced, but the creative and spiritual activities of the talented and industrious individuals themselves.--Preface. Here are the Shakers, in historic photographs that capture from them every angle--as they saw themselvs, as the World saw them, and as they wanted to be seen by the World. Accompanied by lively captions, these 200 photographs, most of them previously unpublished, make up a history of the shakers from about 1850, when photography was becoming widely available, to about 1920, when Shaker communities were declining.
