'The County Decoys: The Fine Old Decoys of Prince Edward County, Ontario', Jem Stewart, Boston Mills Press, 2004.
Hardcover. 196 pages. "The waterfowl decoys of Prince Edward County, located along the north shore of Lake Ontario, are among the oldest, most unusual and finest carved decoys in North America. Many date back to the nineteenth century. They are prized across the continent and abroad for their splendid folk-art qualities, often selling for thousands of dollars.
Despite their perennial popularity among collectors, little is known about these fascinating decoys and their long-deceased makers. After ten years of detective-like research, noted decoy authority Jim Stewart unravels many of the mysteries surrounding both the artifacts and their carvers."
CONDITION: New and unused.
