The nineteenth century was a period of remarkable changes in furniture styles in America, and this book, with 481 illustrations, presents a record of those evolutions. Each of the major styles is examined in detail: classic, which developed from the influence of Hepplewhite and Sheraton early in the century; Empire and Restauration, which followed next; the richly carved rococo furniture popular at mid-century; the applied decoration of the American Renaissance; and the informal variety of the eighties and nineties.
