Lockwood's classic survey of furniture from the Colonial period is based on the examination of colonial furniture in public and private collections, inventories, contemporary records, and cabinet-makers' design books. The one-volume first edition was published in 1901 and contained less than half as many illustrations. Bookplates of Chicago meatpacking magnate J. Ogden Armour.
