Summary
Dog carts, "shays," buckboards, sulkies, piano-box buggies, breaks, phaetons, depot wagons, coaches, sleighs.... These carriages are some of the finest representation of nineteenth-century craftsmanship. They also reflect a great deal of nineteenth-century culture and life. This book makes the wonderful diversity of American carriages available to you in outstanding Victorian engravings. Included are 168 illustrations of carriages, most from the period 1850 to 1900: chaises ("shays"), dog carts, governess carts (for children), stanhope gigs, hansome cabs, sulkies, road carts and pony carts, beach wagons, buckboards, piano-box buggies (one of the most popular), shifting-seat buggies, Dearborn wagons, runabouts, skeleton wagons, surreys, breaks, extension-top phaetons, basket and mail phaetons, a spider phaeton, traps, a coupé rockaway, depot wagons, clarences, landaus, broughams, cabriolets, mountain wagons, opera buses, and many others. Sleighs include the booby-hut, Albany cutter, Portland cutter and bob sleigh. Additional plates show trimming patterns.Most of these illustrations are high-quality engravings made specially for the trade, and are therefore the most accurate representations of these carriages available. These sources include The Hub, The Carriage Monthly, The New York Coach-maker's Magazine, and manufacturers catalogues. Photographs from the Smithsonian Institution are also included -- Back cover
