From the Back Cover:

"The Ensko and Wenham charts of characterisitic silver shapes clearly express the 'anatomy' of the shifts of fashion in English plate. They have proved to be a valuable shortcut in familiarizing my students with the major styles."....Carl Christian Dauterman, adj. prof. Columbia Univ.; curator emer., Metropolitan Museum of Art
