Paul Revere Collection at the American Antiquarian Society

Yes, it is true that Paul Revere did once take a horse on a very well known ride across the landscape of eastern Massachusetts. But he did many other things, including spending time as a dentist, an engraver, a printer, and also finding time to make exquisite silverware. This remarkable digital collection from the American Antiquarian Society (AAS) brings together an illustrated inventory of Revere's work documented and researched by former AAS president, Clarence S. Brigham. This collection of engravings, published prints, and currency allows users to explore by subject or even conduct a search using a thumbnail gallery. The Subject-Tag Browse feature is a real pip, and users can click on terms such as "animal", "Chippendale style", and "Buildings and structures." This last area is a great place to start, as it features images of Harvard College, the landing of British troops in Boston, and an illustration of a hemp mill.
