Most widely held works by C. Geoffrey Holme
Pennsylvania Dutch American folk art by Henry J Kauffman( Book )

6 editions published in 1946 in English and Undetermined and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Pennsylvania Dutch country, with its well-kept farmlands and white Swiss barns, its interesting people and folkways, and its friendly, non-commercial atmosphere, is one of America's most attractive and culturally important regionas. Of particular interest is the distinctive folk art of the early German settlers of the region. Their handiwork reflects the merger of the traditions of the Old World with the rigorous conditions of the New- and reveals the utilitarian bent of its markers. Yet, the patterns and motifs used in the decoration of these artifacts give them an individuality and charm that has endeared them to present-day American tastes, and surviving pieces are avidly sought by collectors all over the country. This book serves as an admirable introductory guide to the Dutch country and its craftsmanship. Primarily, it is a pictorial compendium of the products of the early carpenters, metalworkers, printers, glassmakers, potters, etc. of the area. But a preliminary text by the author gives a wealth of information on the history of the people and the region, and on their architectural themes, furniture, textiles, Fraktur-Schriften, and other arts." -- back book cover
