145. Brust, James, and Wendy Shadwell. “Unconventional Currier & Ives.” Vol. 24, no. 1 (Spring 1999), 2-26.

In the spring of 1998, Brust and Shadwell mounted an exhibition of uncommon objects relating to Currier & Ives at the New-York Historical Society. This article discusses these items and others, including cases for daguerreotypes, wood engravings of lithographs, unusual lithographs for the firm, job work, trade cards published by the firm based on earlier larger prints, and photographs of their prints. Also noted are works by other artists who copied prints by the firm. This is a fascinating excursion into little-known images.

146. Worman, Paul. “The Etchings of Thomas Waterman Wood”. Vol. 24, no. 1 (Spring 1999), 27-34.

Worman is engaged in the compilation of a catalog raisonné of Thomas Waterman Wood. In this essay, he presents Wood’s biography and describes his use of the etching process beginning in 1877 at the first meeting of the New York Etching Club. Wood worked in this medium until 1894 when he refocused his attention on his painting career.
