Buckinghamshire's reputation for furniture-making goes back to the seventeenth century - for Daniel Defoe mentions chair making in the Chilterns, and High Wycombe has been the acknowledged centre for more than a century and a quarter. This antique book contains a detailed treatise on 'High Wycombe Furniture', including photographs, detailed descriptions, historical information, and much more. A text sure to appeal to those with an interest in English furniture, this marvellous little book constitutes a worthy addition to collections of furniture literature and is not to be missed. The chapters of this book include: 'High Wycombe Furniture', 'English Chairs: Some Points in Anatomy', 'A Note on Education in Furniture-making', and 'The Commercial Organisation of Furniture-making'. We are proud to republish this antique book here complete with a new introduction on the history of furniture.
