Reprint of the book first published in 1931. This book covers the field of furniture-making over a period of two hundred years, from 1620 to 1820, and is concerned with that part of the old South which comprised the original colonies of Maryland, Virginia, North and South Carolina, and Georgia. It is the first and only complete authoritative work about Southern antiques, and its illustrations are authentic, and, in some instances, labeled antiques which are representative of types now extant in this section of the country. The furniture is arranged in eleven chapters: Sideboards (11 plates), Gate-Legged and Dining Tables (7), Hunting Boards (5), Cellarets (6), Tables (21), Desks and Secretaries (16), Cupboards (12), Chests (11), Chairs (17), Beds (5), and Miscellaneous Pieces (6).
