Hughes, Therle - Old English Furniture. Lutterworth, second edition, 1963. ... is a simpleand comjprehnsive approach to period furniture from the earliest times to the Regency. In successive chapters, chests, charis, tables, beds and cradles, cupboards, cabinets, mirrors, dressing-tables, long-case clocks, bureaux and other articles are explained and discussed, and at the same time much information is offered about materials, tools, and constructional methods - logical expressions of the general pattern of the times in which these pieces were produced. This book, though designed for the non-expert, is well qualified to be a companion and constant source of information through a lifetime of collecting. (flap). 8¾" x 5¾", 202pp plus 26 plates, brick-red cloth, hardback. Index. Illustrated with monochrome and colour photographs, plus drawings within the text. Very good (no inscriptions, no bumps, not ex-library) probably unread complete with good (edge-wear, 'rub' down centre of spine, 'dusty') wrapper, not price-cut.
