This book is by James Bolton, son of Robert Bolton, who owned the Pondfield Farm, in what is now Bronxville, NY. It has nothing to do with the Brook Farm community in Massechusetts. It is a memorial to the family life lived on Pondfield Farm in the early 1800's. The family also purchased 30 acres in what is now Pelham, NY and built the Bolton Priory there, the first example of neo-gothic architecture in the US, built in 1838.
