If you enjoy Eric Sloane's illustrations, you will want this book. Many of the items illustrated in this book have appeared elsewhere in Eric Sloane's books. But this book is comprised exclusively of illustrations with short captions to provide the necessary information. It would be a nice way to introduce young readers to Sloane's work.

Noted artist Eric Sloane presents a rich and varied collection of American first from the saltbox house to the basketball, hex signs to ear trumpets, popcorn to rocking chairs. Delightful words and even more delightful inventions, these curiosities and many others are vanishing antiquities of our country's past of which few Americans are aware.

Another great book on Americana by Eric Sloane. Love the way that Mr. Sloane captures the feeling of the time. Like he was there himself. If you love Americana then this book is for you. Also illustrated by Sloane himself you get the feeling of being there yourself. Excellent.

I have found Eric Sloane to be one of the authors that I cannot just buy one book from. This book is no exception. There's some interesting quips and insights from a man, an author and illustrator, who lived and died before my time and I like these books for their charm and illustrations.

Like all his books, these drip of Americana. Consider the source when referencing historical occasions as they are written in descriptive and flowery prose. Still a good read.
