Published in 1898, Heirlooms in Miniatures features reproductions of illustrations of the “best examples of colonial, revolutionary, and modern miniature painters." Attempting to document the lives and work of the preeminent American artists of the time, it features notes from the author of incorrectly marked portraits and fun facts that add a taste of personality to the informative biographies of the artists and subjects.
