Read Books, May 1, 2006 - Antiques & Collectibles - 220 pages
Originally published in 1934, this is an exhaustively detailed guide to the history of English furniture, copiously illustrated with black and white photography and many illustrations, and is highly recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of anyone with an interest in the subject. Many of these earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. Contents include: The Historical Background of Design 1500-1700; The Historical Background of Design 1700-1934; Furniture Design Under the Wood Workers 1500 1660; Furniture Design Under Fashion, 1660-1730; Furniture Design Under the Architects 1730-1830; Furniture Design Under the Romantic Movement and the Furniture Trade 1830-1900; Furniture Design Under the Antique Dealers and Artist-Craftsmen 1900-1920; The New Materials and Their Effect on Design; The Patient Art of Buying Furniture; Books About Furniture and Design.
