FINE POINTS OF FURNITURE: EARLY AMERICAN , by Albert Sack, Foreword by Israel Sack, Crown Publishers Inc., NY, 1950/1993. 
Profusely illustrated with over 800 black-and-white photographs, this comprehensive book is “a pictorial guide to the evolution and selection of early American antique furniture.” 
Today it is not enough to know that an example of early American furniture is of a specific period, for there is an additional interest in determining the regional origin and, if possible, to what craftsman it may be attributed.  The most important factor of all is whether an example is good of its kind and how it compares with similar types.  A book on comparatives was an essential need in the field and it was inevitable that eventually it would be written.  The subject has been taken for the first time by Albert Sack, under the title,FINE POINTS OF FURNITURE, with a good, better, best comparison.  This publication will provide an instructive guide for the general collector, and a medium through which the advanced student may verify his standard of taste.”  The illustrations (over 800 photographs) with associated detailed captions are classified by chapter: Chairs, Beds, Bureaus, Chests and Cupboards, Clocks, Desks, Secretaries, Highboys, Lowboys, Mirrors, Sideboards, Sofas, and Tables.  There is also a section on Restorations, Replacements and Imperfections.  Considered one of the most comprehensive studies on the subject, this early first edition text belongs in the permanent library of the connoisseur of early American furniture. 
7.4” x 10.2” hardback with dust cover in very good condition.  320 pages.
