New England decoys
The best carvers of New England are featured in the Delph's latest book on antique decoys. Over 250 photographs provide excellent coverage of the hand made ducks of Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. Here the emphasis is on the lives and works of the top carvers in the Northeast such as Elmer Crowell, Joseph Lincoln, Henry Keyes Chadwick, Gus Wilson, George Boyd, Albert Laing, Benjamin Holmes, and "Shang" Wheeler. Many ducks and shorebirds by talented unkown makers are also included. The photographs and text give a vivid picture of hunting in New England during the lifetimes of these early carvers. The use of live duck decoys and gunning clubs, and the need for various types of decoys is discussed.
