About this item
Within the limits of a small volume it is manifestly an impossibility to deal exhaustively with a subject of such magnitude as furniture. The author has, therefore, attempted an outline sketch with three main objects in view. Firstly, to present briefly a description of the various recognized furniture styles. Secondly, to stimulate a desire for further knowledge, such as will encourage the reader to persue his researches in greater detail. Thirdly, to emphasize the importance of domestic art and an intelligent appreciation of the beautiful in interior decoration.
