Book Condition: New


This book is a comprehensive guide to regional differences in early American furniture. It will assist the collector, dealer, and auctioneer in determining where and when antique furniture was made. The book is unique in that it covers all the major furniture producing regions from the time of the first settlements until American furniture begins to lose its regional character in the first decades of the nineteenth century. The almost 700 illustrations focus on furniture most likely to be seen in the home and marketplace. In addition to many hundreds of illustrations of New England, Middle Atlantic, and Southern pieces, there is a chapter on the regional use of cabinet woods, essays on the furniture of the different regions, and detailed illustrations of regional carving, turning, and construction practices. There is no other book half as useful in determining the who, when, and where of early American furniture.
