Author: Wallace Nutting
Publisher: Old America
Publication Date: 1928-01-01
Jacket condition: None as issued
Edition: First Edition
Notes: The original, 1st edition 2-volume set from 1928. Brown buckram covers, no jackets as issued. These HUGE volumes are in very good condition given their age. Bindings are solid, all pages intact. Hinges have not torn; they are weak on volume 1, tight and solid on volume 2. Pages on both books are well-thumbed - it appears they were used as a reference by a furniture maker who did not always get all the stain off his hands! All text/illustrations are perfectly legible, just expect many finger smudges in the margins. Covers have rubbing at edges, especially at corners, but corners are still quite square. Gilt titles on covers and spine still bright. With over 5000 illustrations, it's easy to see why this set has become the standard research source for American furniture.
