THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FURNITURE by Joseph Aronson, Clarkson Potter, NY, 1965.
Some 2,000 photographs support this compendium which provides an in-depth survey of the various types and styles of antique furniture, covering the periods and developments from the 1600s through the 1900s – Designers, Craftsmen, and Their Materials.  
Concerning this revision, the publishers say, “ Articles have been brought up to date.  New materials, styles, and trends have provided the basis for added articles.  Every period and every development in furniture styling and construction are described in detail.  The Encyclopedia of Furniture contains full information about designers and makers, woods and other materials, architecture and decoration. Illustrations are not a supplement, but an integral part of this book…so that the reader can see for himself an example of the item being described.  The range of photographs is from the earliest museum pieces to products of today’s and tomorrow’s noteworthy designers.  Photographs have been supplied by almost every famous museum, and by private collectors, manufacturers, and dealers.  Definitions are clear and complete; factual matter is thoroughly reliable.  This single volume contains the synthesis of an entire library on the subject of furniture and decoration.”  This book is an invaluable resource reference for the collector, dealer, or appraiser of antique furniture.
