Abstract:

Nathaniel Hurd (1729/30-1777) was the son of Boston silversmith from whom he learned his trade as a silversmith. In addition to his abilities as an engraver of three-dimensional silver objects, Hurd developed his skills at pictorial engraving, producing a large number of bookplates for Boston's elite and prints that served a number of commercial purposes -- military commissions ordered by the provincial government, trade cards, tables of weights and measures, even an elegant trio of watch papers on a single sheet with portraits of James Wolfe, William Pitt and King George III. He also engraved several important independent prints.

The collection includes 90 bookplates engraved by Hurd which are housed alphabetically under the last name on the bookplate within the Society's broader bookplate collection.
