The Boston Athenaeum originally published these volumes in 1919 as a catalogue of a 1917 exhibition of engravings and photographs which included portraits by Rembrandt and Van Dyck. Each portrait is accompanied by a detailed biographical outline and additional commentary. The compilation is organized by region (Carolina; Virginia and Maryland; New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware; New England; and the West) with an alphabetical list of subjects and an index.
