Abstract:

"This beautiful volume celebrates the American way of collecting. Rarely, if ever, have so many works from so many different places been brought together & reproduced in color to make one grand, glorious book." -- Amazon review.

Here you will find paintings by Raphael & Titian, Rembrandt & Frans Hals, El Greco & Valazquez. The Impressionists are represented as are the Modern Age painters and photographs by Dorthea Lange, Ansel Adams, & Edward Weston. There are even cameras. From the natural world come Dinosaur remains, brilliant precious gems, & wildlife exhibits. Milestones in transportation are recorded with such artifacts as the 1903 Wright Flyer (airplane), Henry Ford's first car, & even a Nazi submarine, while Judy Garland's red slippers from The Wizard of Oz, one of Elvis's jumpsuits, & Tony Walton's set model from Death of a Salesman pay tribute to achievements in entertainment. History buffs can peruse such relics as the original Star Spangled Banner, Teddy Roosevelt's rifle, & the chair in which Lincoln was assassinated, while sports fans thrill to Babe Ruth's uniform, bat, & ball, & the bench used by Vince Lombardi. Charles Mathes' informative text takes you inside 80 of the nation's most celebrated museums!
