Also announced in the latest issue of The Numismatic Bookseller is a new book by Richard Margolis, Benjamin Franklin in Terra Cotta.
Decades in the making, a new book by Richard Margolis is now in press. Termed “brilliant” by John W. Adams, the oversize volume features fine full color illustrations throughout and is handsomely bound. Further details will be available soon. For now, a conspectus follows:
"Benjamin Franklin in Terra Cotta advances the iconographic scholarship on the portrait medallions and moulds created by Jean-Baptiste Nini, Jean Martin Renaud, and Claude Michel (Clodion). Scholars, art historians, curators and collectors will greatly benefit by acquiring Mr. Margolis's thorough and amply illustrated volume. Kudos to Kolbe & Fanning for producing a beautifully printed reference work that Franklin would certainly have found useful."
—Roy E. Goodman, Emeritus Curator of Printed Materials, The American Philosophical Society Library & Past President, The Friends of Benjamin Franklin.
