The chipped stone artifacts of
the Empire State as described in 1897 by William M.
is a summary of the leading forms of chipped stone
implements found in New York. They preceded and
survived the finer articles of polished stone, which
is naturally the next subject to be treated, and of
which New York furnishes so many good examples. That
every important locality will yield striking
varieties of chipped implements not here
illustrated, is to be expected. The purpose of such
a paper is to furnish information, but yet more to
be a basis for comparison, so that collectors may
judge of the real value of the articles they find,
and thus be induced to contribute rare specimens to
this department of the state museum."
