With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

1 Stillehre und Geschichte des Mobelbaues
Vienna 1924 Hardcover Very Good very good Jacket 
A well-done and decorative student notebook, and really compendium, on the topic of cabinet or furniture-making. The notebook is written in a neat hand, with many illustrations of Renaissance and Gothic style furniture and ornament, and Tirolese style figures in as well. The most memorable illustration, though, is of a domed baroque church and monumental column and staircase in front of it. Measuring 20 by 16.5 cm, the notebook runs for about 100 pages, after which the leaves are blank. With also a homemade dust jacket.

7 Sheraton, T. [Thomas] The Cabinet Dictionary, Containing An Explanation of all the Terms Used in the Cabinet, Chair & Upholstery Branches; With Directions for Varnish-making, Polishing, and Gilding. . . .
London W. Smith 1803 First Edition Full Morocco Very Good Minus 
A hard-to-find classic on furniture. 8vo. vi, [10], 410 pp. plus 87 copper engraved plates, 27 of which are folding, of late Georgian and Regency Era designs by a master. Includes ten page list of subscribers. The definitions of terms ranges from short and to the point definitions to longer essays or encyclopedic articles. The writing is fluid and very readable, and the interest today is not merely as a hoary reference for words now fallen into disuse or whose meanings have shifted but also the numerous historical asides and lucid explanations of processes, etc. The writing is both precise and accessible. Occasional foxing. A few plates with repairs. Later full red morocco with edgewear. 
Price: 1250.00 USD
