8 Berman, Harold. Bronzes: Sculptors & Founders, 1800-1930.
Chicago, Illinois: Abage Publishers. First Edition. 
Signed by the Author. Quarto, brown cloth, gilt letters, 224 pp. Near-Fine, with light foxing (age darkening) in a Near-Fine, mylar protected dust jacket. From dust jacket: Here is the first definitive reference book dealing exclusively with collectable bronzes and the men who made them. Because of the commercial nature of these bronzes, they and their makers have largely been ignored, while a few scultors -- and painters who sculpted -- have received an inordinate amount of praise. The era covered saw a rise and decline of giant foundries. They cast millions of fine statuettes and other works of art for the general public. Today, these metal pieces are being sought and collected, both for their esthetic beauty and investment value. Extensive research culminated in this book's publication. For the first time hundreds of sculptures, representative of the years 1800-1930, are recognized and identified. For those who simply want to inspect or study the bronzes there are over 700 fine photos on the 129 plate pages; for those who want to read about them, 41 caption pages present capsuled descriptions. And for those who desire knowledge in the area of collecting/investing, there are informative articles.

16 Caldwell, Benjamin Hubbard, Jr. Tennessee Silversmiths. [The Frank L. Horton Series].
Winston-Salem: The Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA), The University of North Carolina Press, (1988). 
Quarto, royal blue cloth (hardcover), silver letters, xi + 216 pp. Fine (As New) in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. From dust jacket: Among the artisans who settled and worked in Tennessee from the early 1790s until the Civil War period were tradesmen who made, repaired, plated, and retailed silver, jwelry, clocks, and watches. The geography, history, settlement, and trade patterns of Tennessee, combined with the experiences of the silversmiths themselves, brought about often unique regional styles. As the fledgling state matured, so did the products of its silversmiths. By the mid-nineteenth century, however, the silversmithing trade in Tennessee increasingly was affected by a dramatic shift in the technology of production...In this original survey Ben Caldwell divides the study of Tennessee silver into three chronological periods, outlines the lives of the silversmiths, clock and watchmakers, jewelers, and retailers who worked in Tennessee before 1860, and illustrates their work...
