English furniture, 1660-1714 : from Charles II to Queen Anne by Adam Bowett( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 182 libraries worldwide
"This book describes the development of fashionable English furniture between the restoration of Charles II in 1660 and the death of Queen Anne in 1714. Based very largely on contemporary documents and on original and firmly documented furniture, it provides a closely-reasoned analysis of changing furniture styles, together with much technical information on materials and processes. The author's radical new approach to the stylistic and structural analysis of furniture will change perceptions of English furniture and establish a new chronology for late 17th and early 18th century English furniture. This illustrated book is the first comprehensive review of the subject for nearly one hundred years."--BOOK JACKET
