From the summary – "The complete book of furniture, Style, Design, Antiques, Reproductions, Woods, Fabrics, Construction, Architecture, Designers, Cabinetmakers, Details and Development are covered accurately and interestingly. Not only does this book tell you authoritatively but also shows you in over 1500 illustrations. Most of these are photographs and the excellent drawings clarify the most difficult and unusual points, so that this book is also a Pictorial Encyclopedia"
