$20.00 Jazz Tales from Jazz Legends: Oral Histories from the Fillius Jazz Archive at Hamilton College
by Monk Rowe with Romy Britell, foreward by Dan Morgenstern. 209 pages with 13 black and white illustrations, 2015. ISBN: 978-1-937370-17-6 Distills an oral history project that began in 1995 under the auspices of the Fillius Jazz Archive at Hamilton College in Clinton N.Y. Excerpts drawn from 325 one-on-one sessions conducted for the Archive are organized into categories including first-hand accounts of life on the road, inspiration, race and jazz, improvisation, and work inside the studios. Interviewees quoted in the book include icons in the jazz world such as Joe Williams, Dave and Iola Brubeck, Jon Hendricks, Steve Allen, and Marian McPartland. Stories from unsung sidemen offer a rare perspective on the life and times of jazz artists who balance the love of music with the sacrifice inherent in the jazz lifestyle. The author provides informative commentary with personal insights into the accomplishments and personalities of over one hundred jazz artists.
$20.00 John Humphrey Noyes on Sexual Relations in the Oneida Community: Four Essential Texts
edited with Introductions by Anthony Wonderley. (ACSS, no. 8) 165 pages, ill. ; 23 cm. ISBN: 978-1-937370-04-6 (2012) Description: At the height of the prudish Victorian age, the utopian Oneida Community (1848-1880) openly practiced group marriage which, it was said, freed women from unwanted pregnancy, marital bondage, and household drudgery. This radically successful social experiment was based on the teachings of the commune's leader, John Humphrey Noyes, whose key writings on gender relations are assembled here for the first time.
$15.00 Partake a Little Morsel: Popular Shaker Hymns of the Nineteenth Century
by Carol Medlicott, 89 p. , ill., music, 26 cm. $15. ISBN: 978-1-937370-00-8 (2011) Among the various forms of Shaker song, hymns have sustained the worship of the United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing?—?or Shakers?—?for over two hundred years. Distinguished from other song types by their lengthy texts of metrical rhymed poetry, hymns can accommodate an endless range of theological and spiritual ideas. During the nineteenth century, Shakers produced hundreds of individual hymns, which were recorded by countless individual Shakers in myriad manuscript hymn books. Yet from this enormous body of hymnody, a core group of hymns readily emerges?—?hymns that were used and beloved for decades across the Shaker world, from Maine to Kentucky. Remarkably, the hymns in this core group are virtually unknown today. This study helps today’s reader to “partake a little morsel” of a relatively untapped vein of American folk hymnody, revealing a fresh understanding of the Shakers’ amazing complexity and vitality. Shaker Studies, No. 3
$25.00 Picturing the Shakers in the Era of Manifestations
By Robert P. Emlen. This collection assembles for the first time the rich body of visual images depicting the Shakers during the Era of Manifestations. This tumultuous time of spiritual revival within Shaker communities brought Believers into contact with visitors from the spirit world who taught them new songs, dances, and rituals, as well as prescribing new codes of conduct. Events during the Era of Manifestations also caused many to lose the faith and leave Shaker communities. Some of these apostates took the songs and dances they learned among Believers and traversed the country giving performances. Book illustrations picturing true Shaker worship and sensational engravings on commercial handbills depicted Shakers and former Shakers in a variety of contexts, and many images appeared in multiple variations. They are presented here accompanied by an essay contextualizing the Shakers, the apostates, and the worldly artists and promoters who pictured the Shakers for the American public. Contain 44 illustrations, many never before published. Robert P. Emlen is university curator and senior lecturer in American Studies, Brown University; and adjunct faculty, Department of the History of Art and Visual Culture, Rhode Island School of Design.

$35.00 Seeking Robert White: Quaker, Shaker, Husband, Father
Robert White's spiritual journey eventually led him to the Shakers, but, much to his dismay, his wife did not share his views and remained committed to Quakerism. As a married, celibate Believer, Robert White had to balance the often-conflicting roles he played in his two families, natural and Shaker. How he functioned as a Shaker convert living "in the world" is a story of faith and challenges; an exceptional Shaker experience in the mid-nineteenth century. by Sandra A. Soule, 428 pp., illustrations (some color) , paperback binding, 23 cm., 2016. ISBN: 978-1-937370-18-3 ($35)

This study unfolds some of the puzzling aspects of these heavenly communications.
$25.00 Symbols in the Wilderness: Early Masonic Survivals in Upstate New York
Freemasonry played a vital role in the social development of New York State. Its Lodges provided a trusted place for newcomers to meet and for friendships and business partnerships to develop, free from political, professional, and sectarian differences. During its explosive growth from 1790 to the end of the 1820s Masonic brethren produced iconic architecture, as well as extraordinary examples of folk art, expressed in large symbolic paintings (“tracing boards”), murals, textiles, and graphics. Most of these have remained entirely unknown outside the Upstate Lodges that, against all hazards, have preserved them. Their symbolism seems mysterious and confusing to outsiders, but once explained, it gives insight into a period and place unique in American history. Joscelyn Godwin is professor of music at Colgate University. Christian Goodwillie is director and curator of Special Collections, Burke Library, Hamilton College. Marianita Peaslee is the digital imagery specialist, Burke Library, Hamilton College. Upstate Institute and Richard W. Couper Press, 181 pages ISBN- 9781937370213
$20.00 The Collected Writings of Henry Cumings (1834-1913): Shaker Elder and Citizen of Enfield, New Hampshire
Compiled with introduction by Mary Ann Haagen, 259 p., illustrated. $20. ISBN: 978-1-937370-02-2 (2012) Henry Cumings was ten years old when he and his family joined the Enfield, New Hampshire, Shakers in 1845. Capable and intelligent, he was entrusted with increasing leadership responsibilities as he came of age. For twenty years he served as one of the Society's most eloquent spokespersons for a Shaker way of life. In 1881, at the age of forty-five, Cuming reappraised his commitment to Shakerism and left the community. He did not, however, repudiate his Shaker heritage. Between 1904 and 1913 he wrote a series of historical essays for the local newspaper, the Enfield Advocate, in which he shared his personal reflections on Shakerism. Collected here for the first time, this volume of Henry Cumings' writings offers the reader a lively and detailed account of the Shaker community he knew so well, and its influence on the town of Enfield, New Hampshire. Shaker Studies, No. 4

$75.00 The Encyclopedic Guide to American Intentional Communities (2nd Edition)
by Timothy Miller. (ACSS, no. 11) 2nd Edition 597 pages. ISBN: 978-1-937370-15-2 (2015) Commune! The word conjures up images of a few isolated idealists, religious fanatics, and social misfits. A commune is a decidedly marginal blip on the American landscape. Nevertheless communes have studded American history -- many thousands of them from the seventeenth century to the present. Although many have heard of the Shakers and (perhaps) the Hutterites and the Harmonists, communes -- most of which now prefer to be known as intentional communities -- represent a largely hidden slice of American history, despite the fact that they have been home to over a million Americans. Many small studies and surveys of American communal movements have been published over the last two hundred years, but the phenomenon of communal living in its fullness remains largely in the shadows. This work has been compiled to dispel those shadows by providing brief sketches of as many American intentional communities as I have been able to identify from the early days of European colonization down to the present [approximately 3,000]. The work also seeks to provide a few reliable references to primary and secondary sources of information on each community. This second edition contains descriptions of twenty additional communities, and additions and corrections to descriptions of over one hundred communities included in the first edition.

$30.00 The Shakers of White Water, Ohio, 1823-1916
The Shakers of White Water, Ohio, 1823-1916, edited by James R. Innis, Jr., and Thomas Sakmyster, 311 pp., with 90 b/w illustrations, 22 music scores, 9 poems, and 9 maps, paperback binding, 26 cm., 2014. ISBN: 978-1-937370-12-1 ($30) This work is a comprehensive examination of the history and life of White Water Village by leading experts on the community. As an offshoot of Union Village, the “mother” of Ohio Shaker communities, White Water has received scant attention in the past. This work rectifies the situation and serves as an example of what should be done for all of the Shaker communities.
