DICTIONARY OF BRITISH SCULPTORS 1660-1851.
New revised edition. Dictionary of about 1,700 sculptors, mostly in stone. Some are major figures, whose entries run for pages with references and lists of works, others are no more than names taken from inscriptions on stone carvings in old churches, or in country houses since pulled down. Much of the sculpture seems to consist of memorial tablets, monuments, and other funerary statuary. The pages of plates contain black-and-white photographic illustrations. With index. Somewhat browned, except for the pages of plates.

ANTIQUITIES OF THE OUACHITA VALLEY.
by Moore, Clarence B.
"Reprint from the Journal of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, vol. XIV." One of several books by Moore documenting his archaeological findings in the American South. Report on an additional collection of skeletal remains, from Arkansas and Louisiana (made and presented to the National Museum, in 1909, by Mr. Clarence B. Moore) by Dr. Ales Hrdlicka. Accompanied by eight color plates depicting Native American pottery. Includes countless other black-and-white illustrations of earthenware as well as a map of the Ouachita River, which runs from central western Arkansas into Louisiana. Loosely inserted is a commemorative booklabel which indicates that this came from the reference library of H.P. Kraus purchased by Oak Knoll Books at the auction sale. Some faint white marks on covers.
