HARDCOVER A Gallery of American Samplers by Glee Krueger


This book from 1984 is long-since out of print. One of the cool things about a book like this is that it highlights notable samplers from one person's collection (this is the Theodore H. Kapnek Collection). So, but for this book, you'd not get an opportunity to see these samplers.  This listing is for the hardcover copy, which may be blue or grey around the edges, but the same sampler on the front as you see in the picture.


The book is in okay condition, but of course it's, what, over 30 years old. So, the pages do have some yellowing, as is to be expected. The cover has shelf wear-and-tear. It's almost 100 pages of full-color and black and white photographs of samplers, along with a history of samplers in general, and notes on the samplers that are featured.


This is a great addition to any sampler lover's bookshelf!
