British campaign furniture: elegance under canvas, 1740-1914
Campaign furniture was designed to be folded up, packed, and carried on the march by traveling armies. During the 18th and 19th centuries, British furniture makers from Hepplewhite to Chippendale produced the most stylish and elegant collapsible chairs, tables, bookcases, beds, sofas, and desks. This first book on the subject is great for designers and collectors, and includes a directory of makers plus great "before" and "after" photos of the furniture -- broken down for travel and then unfolded for use.
