About this title

Synopsis:

An essential reference for collectors, dealers, scholars, and interior designers.

The furniture designs of William Morris, C. R. Ashbee, and Charles Rennie Mackintosh are even more popular and influential today than in their own lifetimes. Other major nineteenth-century figures, such as William Burges and Christopher Dresser, who were once regarded as eccentric outsiders, are accepted now as great designers, and their work is avidly collected.

Jeremy Cooper's survey of this rich and rewarding chapter in the history of the decorative arts contains an astonishing range of photographs and drawings: nearly seven hundred illustrations, many of them in color, offer a uniquely comprehensive coverage of nineteenth-century furniture, from the Gothic Revival to Art Nouveau. Every major designer is represented, and the choice of pictures includes a wealth of little-known furniture from private collections. Rare contemporary photographs of Victorian and Edwardian interiors show how the furniture formed part of complete decorative ensembles.

Jeremy Cooper, a well-known dealer and an expert in this field, has written extensive commentaries on the illustrations as well as a text that provides the essential background. 683 illustrations, 74 in color.

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
