Art on Nantucket.  The History of Painting on Nantucket Island.  By Robert A. diCurcio, Introduction by Stuart P. Feld.  Blue cloth with color pastedown front board, quarto, 11.25 x 9 inches, xvi, 269 pp. Nantucket Historical Association, 1982. lavishly illustrated in color.  Limited numbered edition of which this is copy number 1438 of 2000, ex collection, State Street Bank, Boston (now defunct) with presentation letter signed by Walter Beinecke, (the S&H greenstamps guy), President of the Historical Trust, and the author, Bob diCurcio.

'A book which succeeds admirably as a photographic tour through the history of Nantucket painting from the beginning of the eighteenth century to the middle of the 20th century.  The criterion for inclusion as a Nantucket artist was simply to have painted a picture of an identifiable Nantucket subject.  The work of some one hundred artists (none living) is illustrated, with accompanying succinct, gracefully written narrative.  The book's reference value is enhanced by exhaustive indexing, valuable appendixes, notes and bibliography.' from  Review by Raymond Agler in The Magazine ANTIQUES,  July, 1982, pp. 828-832.

Condition is excellent.
