This is the first major book to be published on antique oak furniture for over fifty years, during which time knowledge of early furniture has advanced enormously. It provides not only a visual feast of superb illustrations (22 in colour, 2,000 black and white), most of which were especially taken for this book, but also offers a much clearer understanding of the subject by fitting it into the context of the period, providing clear classification of the furniture itself and revising old misconceptions.
