Dutch Trade and Ceramics in America in the Seventeenth Century
An indispensable introduction to the trade and ceramics of the New Netherland colony.
A pioneering and fascinating study, Dutch Trade and Ceramics in America in the Seventeenth Century was the first book in English to provide specific information on the various types of Dutch ceramics used by Dutch, English, and Swedish colonists in eastern North America between 1600 and 1700. Charlotte Wilcoxen also examines the broader context of seventeenth-century trade, revealing the maritime channels by which the Dutch brought goods to New Netherland settlements and widely distributed them. Drawing upon a wide range of disparate and inaccessible sources of information, this comprehensive compilation is essential for historical archaeologists and historians.
Charlotte Wilcoxen (1905–2006) was Research Associate for the Albany Institute of History and Art and author of Seventeenth Century Albany: A Dutch Profile.
