Red marbled cloth covered boards, with black cloth title block and gilt letters on front cover; maps on flyleaves, xii, 169 pp., many bw plates. "An account of how a great Philadelphia mansion was decorated and furnished in colonial times. Based on documentary evidence, this story takes the reader inside General Cadwalader's house and gives him a concept of the appearance of a residence said to have been the grandest and the most magnificently furnished in the city. Scores of Philadelphia's master craftsmen had a share in its ornamentation. The narrative includes a description of those who lived in the house and traces what happened to its precious contents, that unrivaled collection of furnishings which so perfectly complemented the General's sumptuous parlors and chambers." (dj) With a foreword by Henry Francis Du Pont. Of 2000 Copies.
