Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764310801, Hardcover)This is an important study of the fine handcrafted furniture made in America between 1840-1880. Most pieces are identified by the cabinetmaker who made them and biographies of the leading cabinetmakers from all over America are presented. There are special sections on Wooden desks and John Henry Belter including new, significant information on Belter the man. Most of the examples have not been seen before in any publication. In the book, Mrs. Dubrow explains why this was the most productive period of American furniture making, and she shows actual room settings as well as individual forms.
