   schema:reviewBody ""Three authoritative essays introduce the subject, highlight the importance of nautical influences in the region, and discuss the celebrated and marvelous Bailey family clocks. These essays and more than one hundred illustrated furniture entries combine to present a wonderful, comprehensive look at the lifestyle and furniture craftsmanship of a little-studied time period - the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries - in southeastern Massachusetts, an understudied geographical area of New England. Featured pieces originate in private and institutional collections. Brock Jobe, Gary R. Sullivan, Jack O'Brien, and their collaborators do a masterful job. Through gorgeously photographed period furniture and meticulously researched data, they chronicle the extraordinary transformation of the landscape, population, and economy of southeastern Massachusetts. They also consider the activities of furniture craftsmen, the purchasing patterns of local buyers, regionalism and the forces that shaped it, changing preferences in fashion, the impact of local residents' growing affluence during this period, and the evolving techniques of contemporary furniture makers. An inclusive appendix listing regional cabinetmakers and clockmakers and a selected bibliography round out this elegant work. Collectors, scholars, and other interested readers will find the volume an indispensable and much-consulted addition to their libraries."--Jacket." ;
