The author wishes to acknowledge the courtesy of the authorities of the Victoria and Albert Museum in allowing the publication of Chippendale, Haig & Co.'s account to Garrick. Figs. 4, 5, 6, 14, 15, 25, 27, 39, 50, 61, 64, 68 are now the property of Messrs Gill & Reigate, to whom he is indebted for the illustrations of these examples, also to Messrs Restall, Brown & Clenell for Figs. 29, 30.

Figs. 49, 56, 58, 85 are at present in the Melbourne Museum, and the author is indebted to the authorities of that Institution for their kindness in supplying photographs of these exhibits, also to the Rev. E. A. Downman for permission to use the Blue Dash Charger on the jacket.

Excerpt from Collecting Antiques for Pleasure and Profit: The Narrative of Twenty-Five Years Search for Antique Furniture, Paints, China, Paintings and Other Works of Art, Copiously Pictured With Many Fine Examples I first began to collect works of art in a small way as long ago as 1893, and it has seemed to me that my experiences as a collector may be of interest to those who, like myself, take a keen delight in acquiring things antique. I cannot boast of ever having bought an article that turned out to be worth thousands of pounds, although such prizes are possible; and this book is in tended for the collector of moderate means who is looking for pieces such as I possess. The illustrations - with a few exceptions - are from photographs, taken by myself, of specimens which have actually belonged to me, and many of which are still in my possession. When I began my collection I had no intention of sell ing any of my acquisitions, but since I retired from my profession and have had more time to devote to my hobby I have sold many of them and replaced them with finer specimens. This is the usual method with collectors, and one which is to be recommended. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
