Description - New York: Treasures of the Museum of the City of New York by Museum of the City of New York

A sweeping visual history of the Big Apple - in a miniature package. This Tiny Folio takes readers on a fascinating tour of New York City history - from the land of the Lenape to today's metropolis - as illustrated by some 250 diverse items from the incomparable collections of the Museum of the City of New York. These include paintings, photographs, drawings, manuscripts, decorative arts and fashion, and unique artifacts such as a lock of George Washington's hair, "Boss" Tweed's tiger-headed cane, and the famous Stettheimer Dollhouse, adorned with miniature works of art by the 1920s avant-garde. An insightful text places these objects in their historical context and relates them to the broader forces that have shaped New York into a world city. This little book is a perfect gift for first-time visitors and lifelong New Yorkers alike. AUTHORS: Whitney W. Donhauser is the Ronay Menschel Director & President of the Museum of the City of New York. Steven H. Jaffe, curator at the Museum of the City of New York, holds a PhD in history from Harvard.
