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
