These two volumes are a valuable resource for the serious collector, with splendid illustrations and informative accompanying text. There is much to learn, even for those who consider themselves knowledgeable about Gillows of Lancaster. My husband was thrilled with his Christmas present; he browses this book on an almost daily basis and always finds something new to interest him. Despite what initially seems quite a high price, this is in fact superb value.
As others have said, this is THE book on Gillows. It is also a fascinating social history of a firm of the time. I borrowed this from British Library, but found I had to have a copy. This is a great deal from this seller.
What a pair of books to read! The only book to buy for Gillows and very good illustrations of furniture. The books are packed with information and will be a very firm favorite for research and pleasure
