KIRKUS REVIEW

From the Middle Ages to Modern Times, this surveys, in the first part, the primary periods (Medieval, Tudor & Stuart, Queen Anne, Georgian, Regency, Victorian and 20th Century) and then the particular furniture and mounts each produced. There is a Time Chart, Glossary, Bibliography and Index along with photographic insets of furniture primarily in the Victoria and Albert Museum. About 60 pages of photographs, the frontispiece in full color. The text is pure explication, formal and authoritative.
