Beyond New England Thresholds, by Samuel Chamberlain, 1937 First Edition. Published by Hastings House, New York City. 96 pages – 200 photographs. Hardcover
From the summary: "An old white Colonial house in the sun was taken as a symbol of rural New England ... Beyond its sunny façade, across its inviting doorstep, however, is another and more intimate symbol, the hearth. An acquaintance with the smiling externals of Colonial homes naturally leads to a curiosity about their interiors. The present volume aspires to sketch this absorbing story of early American interiors by means of the photographic image. Presented in historical sequence, these views become more than a pictorial record; they unfold a many-sided romance of Colonial life itself "
