Keeping Time in Sag Harbor by Stephen Longmire
The museum is selling signed, limited-edition hardbacks of Stephen Longmire's new photographic portrait of the village, Keeping Time in Sag Harbor, for $100. Each copy includes a replica of the bookplate used by the village's early customs collector, Henry Packer Dering, donated by Sag Harbor resident Joy Lewis.
Soft-back copies are also available for $35.00.
Contact the museum shop (631-725-0770) to reserve your copy.
Stephen Longmire has an eye for the glories of an historic village — the way its past endures in its doorways, its gravestones, its fences, its finials. This lovely and loving book, attesting to the unorganized acts of preservation that have maintained the truth of a place for three hundred years, is itself a scrupulous act of preservation.

Mrs. Russell Sage: Women's Activism and Philanthropy in Gilded Age and Progressive Era America by Ruth Crocker
As a widow, Olivia Sage created the Russel Sage Foundation, which established the modern profession of social work and funded an important investigation of working and living conditions in industry. Elite women such as Olivia Sage were long neglected in histories of Progressivism. Yet at the begining of the twentieth century, this remarkable woman used her wealth to fund a wide spectrum of reforms that had a lasting impact on American life.
The museum is selling hardback copies of Ruth Crocker's book for $49.95.
"Relying on her husband's immense fortune and her own understanding of social issues, Olivia Sage developed a unique approach to charitable work that helped shep the direction of the burgeoning U.S. welfare state. Ruth Crocker's sensitive, richly documented, and beautifully written biography brings Sage and her times alive, reminding us that there is, indeed, value in visiting the neglected 'upstairs' of women's

Leviathan: The History of Whaling in America by Eric Jay Dolin
In Leviathan, historian Eric Jay Dolin recounts the dramatic tales of American whaling, telling stories of whalemen and these great beasts wih grandeur and pathos. This magisterial history encompasses the three-hundred-year saga of American whaling, capturing the absorbing social and economic history of the nation through the triumphs and travails of this great American industry.
The museum is selling hardback copies of Eric Jay Dolin's book, Leviathan, for $27.95.
"I thought I learned everything I needed to know about whaling from Melville, but I was wrong. Eric Jay Dolin's 'Leviathan' exposes the rise and fall of the industry inspired by the great beasts of the deep...The excitement of the stories in this magnificently researched saga build and build - until crude oil replaces whale oil, and the copper-sheathed planking from the hulls of old ships gets sold for novelty firewood. I read every word."

Long Island Sound around 1614.

on exhibition, are also available in the Museum Shop.
