Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

A study of the history and organization of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation has long been awaited by scholars of colonial life and friends of Virginia's restored 18th-century capital city. Kopper's text covers Williamsburg from its beginnings in the 1600s through its restoration earlier in this century and into the present, with a fine discussion of the work of the archaeologists and historians dedicated to making Williamsburg a truthful "living museum" of colonial society. The book overflows, however, with ornamental prose that will cause some readers to lose interest. More determined readers will become absorbed in this chronicle of an American institution. No one could fail to be delighted by Clay's elegant photographs. For public libraries.Sally R. Sims, Ohio State Univ. Libs., Columbus

Format: Hardcover
Truly a lavish, oversized hardcover on the complete history of Williamsburg, Virginia (chapters include: The Colonial Period: Jewel in the Crown of the Empire; The Phoenix Years: Decline and Resurrection; The Modern Era: A Once and Future Williamsburg). This book is great bargain for under $4 including shipping. The book is literally bursting with illustrations; 328 total, 168 high quality color plates. Very engaging text; photos serve as a great reminder of past family vacations to village. Great edition to any library, could make a beautiful coffee table book. 1986 edition has stood the test of time, still relevant historical info.

I was completely satisfied by the stunning photographs of this Abrams book. I have been searcing forever for a concise history of the restoration and was highly, highly satisfied! The accompanying text was thoughtful, complete and very well written.
