Oystering from New York to Bostonby John M. Kochiss, Howard I. Chappelle (Other)
Southern New England was once one of the world's great oyster-producing areas. In this detailed study, Kochiss traces the rise and decline of the oyster industry and the specialized boats and techniques that developed from colonial times through the turn of the twentieth century when oystering was a multimillion-dollar fishery. This book is beautifully designed, packaged in a slipcase, and contains a wealth of period photographs and engravings.
