A Complete and Illustrated Catalogue of Antique Barbed Wire
Paperback      ISBN: 0806108762
On the Great Plains, a land barren of wood and rock for the traditional rail and stone fences, the wire fence was a logical invention. Hundreds of barded-wire designs were invented, and the more practical patents were manufactured and shipped west at great profit. Today collectors are carefully searching out that wire for both enjoyment and historical interest. This book was designed to provide a well-organized identifying, classifying, and cataloguing system for the many designs and variations of barded wire. Nearly one thousand drawings and three indexes to patents, inventors, and manufacturers provide an immediate means of identification.

Hogarth
The Modern Moral Subject, 1697-1732
Paperback      ISBN: 0813516951
In 1971, Ronald Paulson published his monumental two-volume critical biography of William Hogarth, thus establishing his own reputation as a major critic on art and literature of the eighteenth century and gaining recognition for Hogarth as a central figure in British art and culture. In the twenty years since the book's original publication, Paulson's viewpoint on his subject has changed and his knowledge of the period has grown and been refined. In the same two decades, there has been a general growth of knowledge and interest in the eighteenth century in general and in major figures such as Defoe, Fielding, Poe, and Swift. This is the first of three volumes of a fully revised work on Hogarth, which will make the books available at affordable prices to a new and wider audience of readers.
