11 Clouston, R. S. English Furniture and Furniture Makers of the 18th Century. Illustrated
London Hurst and Blackett 1906 First edition Cloth Very Good 
xii, 362, [2] pp. Useful source because chapters devoted not just to the likes of Chippendale, Hepplewhite, Sheraton and Robert Adam, but also to Robert Manwaring, Ince and Mayhew, Mattias Lock, Robert and Richard GIllow, and others, designers who also were influential with their pattern or design books as well as in the case most obviously of Gillows, actual manufacturing. Also written in an almost conversational style, notwithstanding what now might come across as a quaintness of phrasing, inviting to the non-specialist. Throughout photographic illustrations of furniture and patterns. This is a comparatively rare title, not to be confused with a somewhat similarly titled book by Kate Clouston. Some shelfwear to green cloth. Slight fraying of the cloth at the spine extremities. Tight, with clean age-toned pages. Bookplate of W.R. Grace on FEP.

18 Hirth, Georg Das Deutsche Zimmer Der Gothik Und Renaissance Des Barock-, Rococo- Und Zopfstils
Munchen & Leipzig G. Hirth's Verlag 1886 Third Edition Hardcover Very Good 
Book. 4to - over 9. xii, 452 pp., 370 text illustrations, some full page. This is a classic work on interior design. It is especially strong in the coverage of Gothic and Renaissance styles as interpreted in the Teutonic world, but it carries on to what is known elsewhere as the Empire style and of course the Rococo. Much attention is given to the development of form, as with such things as a chair. Illustrations with Kronleuchte and other decorative elements that are intimately associated with German style abound. VG. Some sunning to spine. A little fraying to cloth around gutter. Slight bumping to corner. Interior clean, age toned. Grubby stain on fore-edge onto rear board, inside, but only affecting a few pages in the most trivial manner.

19 Kennedy, Roger G.;Kotz, Jack;Hall, John M. Greek Revival America
Edison, New Jersey, U.S.A. Stewart Tabori & Chang 1989 1556700946 / 9781556700941 Hardcover Fine 
Book. 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. 456 pp., beautifully illustrated with photographs of Greek Revival mansions, interiors, public buildings. Roger Kennedy was the head of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and author of several lavish books on architecture. This is perhaps his most magnificent production, and it has become one of the standard references on the style, which had not received a good treatment for several decades. Greek Revival is far more than just another architectural style; it expressed the hopes and pretensions of the early Republic, and it is that sentimental or philosophical attachment which makes the study of it so much richer than merely the admiration of old buildings.
