Encyclopedia of Antique Trunks. 40 years of research, thousands of photos, diagrams, trunk makers' labels, lithographs, facts, addresses, dates, patents all on CD so it's affordable! The book is very easy to use, you just insert it into the CD/DVD drive of your Windows computer*. Nothing is loaded onto your computer; the program runs completely from the disc so there are no security worries. The program has its own browser and operates much as regular Web browsers most of us are used to. There are back and forward controls, a powerful search facility, printing capabilities and much more. Included in the book are thousands of photos, diagrams, trunk makers' labels, lithographs, facts, addresses, dates, patents; we've even included things we hope you'll find as humorous and interesting. The section on trunk makers alone contains references to nearly 10,000 entities we have found associated with antique trunks. The information here contains names of makers, manufacturers, sellers etc. along with their addresses and corresponding years at that address. This information can help you determine the age of your trunk, especially if the trunk contains a maker's label. If you want to see if your family had anything to do with making antique trunks or selling them then many list proprietors, owners, presidents and such; some entities even have employee lists; All this information goes back as far as the 1700s, from all over the world. Many patents from the US and British patent databases are included, along with associated drawings. Descriptions of trunk styles, parts, hardware are given. Several trunk maker catalogues are included from such companies as Stallman, Everlast, even Montgomery Wards.
