More Description

This early work is a fascinating read for amateur and professional antiquarians, thoroughly recommended for use as a reference on all aspects of antique chairs. Extensively illustrated with text and full page drawings to accompany the text. Contents Include: The Historic Background of Chairs; Chairs of the Seventeenth Century from Tudor Gothic through William and Mary; Slat-back and Banister-back Chairs; American Windsor Chairs; Queen Anne and Georgian Chairs; Corner Chairs; Note on the Chair Styles of the Brothers Adam and the Louis XV Period; Chippendale Chairs; Hepplewhite Chairs; Directoire and Sheraton-style Chairs; Fancy Chairs; Empire and William IV Chairs; French Antique or Victorian Chairs; Rocking Chairs; Glossary; A Partial Exemplary List of Chairmakers 1660s to 1850s; and Directory Listings of Chairmakers. Many of the 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.
