Pictorial Dictionary of British 18th Century Furniture Design - The Printed Sources [1990]

£34.99

Product description

Published in 1990 by the Antique Collectors' Club.

Highly illustrated, full of plates of furniture designs.

This text examines the published drawings which were influential in determining design details during this century. Pattern books and printed sources of information on furniture design and details of decoration increased rapidly on as the 18th century progressed. Chippendale, the best known name, was one of the earlier sources, but it is typical of the difficulties which this book unravels that a revival of interest in this work in the 1820's resulted in the plates being republished. Communication of ideas to craftsman blossomed under Chippendale and soon dozens of books were published so that by the end of the century design had become an important craft in its own right.

In excellent condition throughout. Fresh, crisp and clean with a firm binding. The edges of the dust jacket have a few light creases.
