This important book, the result of discoveries made during an exhaustive survey of Portsmouth furniture at more than 230 sites throughout the country, places the furniture makers of Portsmouth alongside those of Newport, Boston, Philadelphia, and New York as creators of some of the finest early American furniture. The book contains three essays (by James L. Garvin, Brock Jobe, and Johanna McBrien), a graphical description of furniture terminology ("Reader's Note"), and a catalogue describing in detail 117 pieces of furniture each illustrated in black & white photographs with 14 of the pieces also illustrated in full-page color plates. In addition, there are two appendices (on Furniture Makers and Allied Craftsmen and on Portsmouth Branded Furniture) and an extensive bibliography.
