"The Borden Limner was the name first coined for the artist who painted the portraits of Captain Daniel Borden and his wife Mary B. Jenney, of New Bedford, MA (Collection of New Bedford Whaling Museum, New Bedford, MA). This was the subject of the thesis of the late Dr. Robert Bishop and an exhibit of the same name held at the University of Michigan Museum on Art in the winter of 1976-77. Then in 1980, Dr. Bishop on the evidence of a strong correlation between a work seen and citations shared with him from a ledger book of the Blunts {sic, JOHN SAMUEL BLUNT, 1798-1835}, still in private hands, Bishop identified Blunt as the Borden limner. .." ; Photographs; 0.2 x 9.8 x 7.9 Inches; x, 90 pages; Cover has some shelf wear, light rubbing/scuffing, previous owner's name label inside front cover; hand written ink notes, inside back cover.
