Textile History 'This encylcopedia is one of those rare books that, once written, becomes immediately indispensable...It is not another encyclopedia of decorative arts...Rather, it is an ecncyclopedia of knowledge related to furniture manufacture...Any designer with curiosity about how furniture has been made in the past or how it might be made today will have to have a copy of what will surely come to be known simply as 'Edwards'.
