"For almost 70 years, the Shaker scholar-collectors Edward Deming Andrews and Faith Young Andrews worked to "gather up the fragments" of Shaker Culture. They energetically collected objects, studies sources, mounted exhibitions, and published books on Shaker culture." "This book comprehensively presents the Andrewses' story for the first time. Essays by Mario S. De Pillis and Christian Goodwillie provide a history of the collection and recount the couple's relations with the Shakers and with important New York City art-world figures of the 1930s. Drawing on many new manuscript sources, as well as oral histories, recollections, field notes, newly discovered letters and diaries, and over 600 photographs, most never before published, De Pillis and Goodwillie have broken new ground in telling the fascinating story of the birth of a field of study."--Jacket.
