America Pictured to the Life explores the extraordinary range of American illustrated books given by the estate of Paul Mellon to Yale University’s Beinecke Library. The catalogue of the 2002 exhibition ranges from 16th-century accounts of early European exploration through late 19th-century American children’s literature. Works depicting American cities and historical events are accompanied by illustrated trade literature, art and architectural manuals, and works of entertainment. Illustrated in full color, the catalog includes commentary on more than 100 items from the Mellon bequest.
