Title:English Furniture - Decoration, Woodwork and Allied Arts
A comprehensive and fascinating volume which traces the chronological development of furniture design from the work of Inigo Jones in the 16th century to the work of Sheraton in the early 19th century. Illustrated with 3,500 drawings (some engravings reproduced from the pattern books of the great designers, and others specially drawn by the author) of such once-common household items as Chippendale and Hogarth chairs, dials, cisterns, windows, clocks, cabinets, tables, bedsteads, chests, and screens. This is a wonderful reference book for both the dealer and the collector...
