Equally instructive is the book's introduction, which documents the formation of the collection by museum founder Henry Francis du Pont, one of the twentieth-century's most notable collectors of Americana. Donald L. Fennimore, the Winterthur museum's longtime senior curator of metals, analyzes just about every bolt, joint, and mold mark on 200 artifacts in wrought, cast, or sheet iron. But that doesn't mean this volume is fusty.

Comments to eBook Iron at Winterthur
Shakataxe
Normally I would not buy a "coffee table" book, but being familiar with the extensive Americana collection at the Winterthur, this book seemed to have my name on it. A massive work with excellent black and white photos and extensive descriptive text on all subjects presented. I am an emerging blacksmith with a minor background in New England antiques and this book will serve well as a source of inspiration for my work. Highly recommended.

Super fast shipping. Great book by Don Fennimore. Wonderful photos as well.

Iron at Winterthur is an excellent sourcebook for anyone studying 18th century ironware, with excellent photographs and good, although brief, texts on the pieces. It is a catalog of the collection at Winterthur rather than a text.

My main interests are in wrought iron hardware; for anyone interested in that subject, a better book is Jim Plummer's book on the Jim Sorber collection.

In general, however, this is an excellent source.
