reprint edition.

Just as no other book of the eighteenth century--and perhaps of the nineteenth century--gives such detailed directions for furniture design as does Thomas Sheraton's Drawing-Book, so The Cabinet Dictionary, with its comprehensive explanations on the use of furniture, stands alone as a guide to household furnishing. Not simply a pattern book of current London fashions, the Dictionary also suggests principles for tastefully furnishing and decorating every room in a home. Published in London in 1801, the Dictionary arranges the vocabulary of taste and usage in alpabetical order, providing a unique and detailed account of how the elements of design, the products of the trades, and their use in the home contributed to the broad pattern of English taste at the beginning of the nineteenth century. This Praeger edition includes a biography of Thomas Sheraton, together with a new, scholarly introduction to this remarkable work.
