Review

'It is a magnificent tribute to the furniture maker's art and would be a welcome addition on the bookshelf of the majority of makers.' --Furniture and Cabinetmaking Magazine

'John Andrews has an encyclopaedic knowledge of antiques and history, qualifications for writing the first of the longest-running of the antique price guides.' --Sunday Telegraph

'This is a superbly crafted book with top-quality illustrations of the best examples of close on over 1,500 pieces of British antique furniture. It is a book to drool over.' --Reference Reviews

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a review of the 2011 edition - if there is a later edition then some of this critique may not apply. The photos are truly excellent and quite a number of them will be familiar to the connoisseur through . auctions and other publications

My only criticisms are that some of the pricing seems a tad ambitious for even a 2011 market which may result from the prices being set by reference to auctions/dealers at the top-end both in primary and secondary dealing such as Sotheby's and Malletts.

Surprisingly, he seems to have missed the attribution of a number of pieces to known makers (such as plate 392 which is clearly a Gillows table and is not acknowledged as such). I should also have liked discussion about attribution rather than statements such as "A very neat and decorative stool" (plate 332) - indeed it is but that is not particularly helpful even to the layman.

Having said the above, it is a delightful visual reference book and should grace most collector's libraries: just don't read it and think that antiques are a good investment as one might believe from the price-ranges given: buy antiques however for sheer love of form and usefulness!
