FIRST EDITION OF THE DICTIONARY OF ENGLISH FURNITURE, BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED

MACQUOID, Percy and EDWARDS, Ralph. The Dictionary of English Furniture from the Middle Ages to the Late Georgian Period. London: The Offices of ?Country Life,? 1924-27. Three volumes. Folio (11 by 16 inches), original green cloth, marbled endpapers, original dust jackets with mounted color illustrations. $1850.

First edition of this pictorial dictionary of English furniture, richly illustrated with dozens of color photographic plates and hundreds of in-text halftones of landmark furniture styles, in rare original dust jackets.

The most authoritative work on Medieval to Georgian antique English furniture, featuring well over a thousand photographs with explanatory commentary. “Without Macquoid’s pioneering work, furniture studies would never have reached their present state” (Jerome Phillips). Macquoid’s collaborator Ralph Edwards was a distinguished furniture expert in his own right and later became the Curator of Woodwork at London’s prestigious Victoria and Albert Museum, where he helped to build a massive collection of nearly 14,000 pieces. Owner signature in volume II.

Books fine, scarce original dust jackets with a bit of staining, some chips to spine ends, a few tears. A near-fine set.
