About the Author:

Since 1957, Joseph T. Butler has served as curator of the Sleepy Hollow Restorations in Tarrytown, New York. The author of numerous books, he was also the American editor of The Connoisseur and an Adjunct Professor of Architecture at Columbia University.

From Library Journal:

Over 1700 of Skibinski's line drawings present a visual approach to the identification of antique furnishings. The book is arranged in chronological sequences (17th century through the early 20th century) by type of furniture, from tables and settees to desks and bookcases. Butler and Johnson have included some important information for the novice and the experienced collector: the sources of furniture used as models for the illustrations; lists of museums, art galleries, and special displays of outstanding collections of furniture; a selected bibliography and a glossary; the anatomy of a piece of furniture; and a brief history of the periods of furniture and furniture makers. Highly recommended for public libraries and other subject collections. Mary Ann Wasick, West Allis P.L., Wis.
