FURNITURE TREASURY (Mostly of American Origin) – All Periods of American Furniture with  Some Foreign Examples in America Also American Hardware and Household Utensils  by Wallace Nutting, The MacMillan Co., NY, 1928 / ca.1950.
One of the most comprehensive pictorial guides on the subject, this scarce out-of-print book contains over 5,000 black and white photographs and detailed line drawings depicting examples of early American furniture.  Each picture is captioned with a terse description, date, maker, and origin when known.  This book was first issued in two volumes in 1928.  This book is the later publication with two volumes of information combined in one bible-thick text.
Indispensable for the beginning collector, the connoisseur, the dealer, the student, and the decorator,Furniture Treasury contains 5,000 examples, illustrated by photographs and brief descriptive comments, of furniture and utensils, mostly of American origin.  While this classic work is rich in rare and elaborate pieces, dating from approximately 1650 to the end of the Empire period, it also includes simpler articles desired by, and more accessible to, the small collector and dealer.”
The table of contents consists of ninety entries, both generic and specific – among them chests, highboys, secretaries, sideboards, settees, chairs, tables; fireplace utensils, lighting fixtures, turnings, and moldings.  In every instance all periods of any given class are illustrated before another class is shown.  To facilitate comparison and appreciation of the development of a structural or ornamental technique, for example, all references in both the table of contents and the index are to the number of the photograph – there are no page numbers.”
A collector’s item in itself, this invaluable reference belongs in the permanent reference library of the collector, dealer, or curator of Early American antique furniture and accessories.
Bible-thick / heavy 7.8” x 10.5” hardback with dust cover in very good condition.  Approximately 1,500 pages.
