Nineteenth Century Furniture – Innovation, Revival and Reform
I’ve set up a new Reference Book page on the Rare Victorian site and I will be adding more entries over time, one of which will be this book, “Nineteenth Century Furniture: Innovation, Revival and Reform”.
I point this out now since I see one of these out-of-print books for sale on Ebay for a Buy It Now price of $48. You’re better off to go to Amazon.com or Abebooks.com and get a used one for around $2.
This is a good book for Daniel Pabst, Egyptian Revival and Kimbel & Cabus due to cursory coverage of these in other reference materials. There is also a good section on George Hunzinger. Other makers and styles covered: Philadelphia Empire Style, Hitchcock Furniture, Belter, Eastlake, Galle and Majorelle, Art Nouveau, Charles Voysey, Chicago Furniture, Gustav Stickley, Roycrofters, Innovative Furniture, Thonet and Bentwood, Wicker, Cast Iron, Adirondack Hickory
