2.0 out of 5 stars Some good pictures - that's about it, 30 Jan 2014
This review is from: Antique Boxes - Inside and Out: For Eating, Drinking and Being Merry: Work, Play and the Boudoir (Hardcover)
A quick scan of the acknowledgements raised alarms bells, I'm afraid, as some of the names mentioned are no more experts than I am the Queen, and know little about the real ins and outs of antique boxes. Allegedly, some are ebay sellers and dealers no longer in business whose reputations were apparently questionable, their knowledge of boxes even more so.

The details in many sections are lacking, the writing does not flow in places, and there are also many grammatical mistakes.

Does not even begin to compare to ANTIQUE BOXES, Tea Caddies & Society by Clarke & O'Kelly which is wonderful.
