About this book

[Orosz's] great virtue is immersion in the records of 11 important 18th and 19th century institutions from the various Peale museums to the Wadsworth Atheneum, the academy of Natural Sciences, and the Smithsonian...[and] his depiction of a complex and contested cultural history marked both by periods of reaction and democratic faith. - Museum News
