A good clean copy of "19th Century European Furniture", by Christopher Payne, first published in 1981, this copy issued by The Antique Collectors' Club of Woodbridge, Suffolk, in 1989. For European, read Continental and allow yourself plenty of time to absorb the mass of fresh information contained in this pioneering study. The author, Departmental Director of Sotheby's Furniture Department, tackles with flair and panache the long overdue task of re-appraising this section of the market. With 1600 carefully chosen photographs, this massive tome is a triumph of scholarship blended with that streetwise realism which can only come from handling the goods. A valuable contribution to the study of furniture history. Hard covers, large format, 504 pages, mainly black and white illustrations plus a few colour plates, original dust jacket.
