Nineteenth-century furniture has only recently begun to be treated as a serious study. In this book, Elizabeth Aslin, who has been instrumental in the collection of Victorian furniture by the Victoria and Albert Museum, reveals the continuous and logical process of evolution throughout the period, which threw up many new ideas, and slowly and painfully led what had been a purely local craft through the hazards of the Industrial Revolution, guided and exhorted by men like Pugin and William Morris. The schools of design from the late Regency to the founding of the 'Art Nouveau' are traced in fascinating detail and the book includes notes on the development and work of the major furniture-making firms established during this period. Illustrated with 135 monochrome plates and 4 plates in color.
