CHIPPENDALE AND HIS CONTEMPORARIES by John Kenworthy-Browne, Orbis Publishing, London, 1971/1975.
The name of Thomas Chippendale the elder, one of England’s greatest and best-known cabinetmakers, has become almost synonymous with the mid-Georgian style largely because of the great pattern book published by him in 1754.  Although Chippendale is the central figure of this study, his work should not be viewed in isolation, for during his lifetime English furniture and interior design reached a new degree of excellence.  Among the most important of his contemporaries were William and John Linnel, William Vile, George Hepplewhite, Thomas Sheraton, and Robert Adam.  In this superbly illustrated book, the author provides an interesting and informative introduction to the work of all these great men – great craftsmen in an age of greatness.”  
Lavishly illustrated in color and black-and-white, this early out-of-print book covers by chapter: Enterprise and Traditions; Rococo with Variations; The Neoclassic and Robert Adam; Elegance and Fashion; Principal Woods Used; Selected Bibliography; and Chippendale and His Contemporaries.  There’s a wealth of information in this text which will benefit the student, dealer, or connoisseur of the Chippendale style.
