Digital Library for Decorative Arts and Material Culture

From the University of Wisconsin Digital Collections comes The Digital Library for Decorative Arts and Material Culture, an extensive digitized library featuring archival materials that will be of interest to art historians and lovers of material culture. These materials, which span the seventeenth through the twentieth centuries, include journals, illustrated natural history guides, design manuals, architectural sketches, and more. Visitors can browse this collection by item or by author. A few of the many gems in this collection include the complete archives of The Craftsman, a monthly journal published between 1900-1916; the four volume American Ornithology, or, the natural history of birds inhabiting the United States, not given by Wilson, with figures drawn, engraved, and colored for nature, authored by Charles Lucien Bonaparte between 1825 and 1833; and the complete text of the 1898 book, The Decoration of Houses, co-authored by novelist Edith Wharton and architect Ogden Codman, Jr.
