THE HERITAGE OF UPPER CANADIAN FURNITURE - A Study in the Survival of Formal and Vernacular Styles from Britain, America and Europe, 1780-1900, by Howard Pain, Van Nostrand Reinhold Ltd., NY, 1978. 
THE HERITAGE OF UPPER CANADIAN FURNITURE is a book of firsts. It is meant for both the serious collector and those who are only beginning to become interested. Never before has Canadian furniture been illustrated so lavishly or completely; the 1,450 plates (249 in color) portray the best examples of Upper Canadian furniture so that they can be identified and evaluated. And never before has the furniture been written about with such clarity and authority. Howard Pain [the author] has given us the only complete reference work on this fascinating and unique body of furniture.” 
This text "is the first book to deal in a comprehensive way with both formal and vernacular styles in Upper Canada, and the first to show their interdependence. More importantly, it is the only work to trace and explain the furniture’s diverse cultural origins. The impression has often been given that Upper Canadian furniture originated almost entirely in the traditions of British and American immigrants. This book clearly shows that it is the result of complex interrelationships not only among Britons and Americans, but also among European and French Canadian immigrants. The European traditions, especially, contain unique and beautiful furnishings, which were made in Upper Canada with admirable skill using old country methods.” 
After a brief historical discussion of immigration patterns into upper Canada, the author explores and illustrates the broad range of stylistic influences on Upper Canadian furniture, and then proceeds to explain and portray for the first time the four major furniture traditions: Anglo-American, Germanic, Polish and French Canadian. The last chapter deals with imported furniture, pieces brought by Loyalist and later immigrants, sent from the old country or imported for re-sale, so that collectors will be able to distinguish them from those actually made in Upper Canada.” This indispensable book belongs in the permanent reference library of the collector, dealer, curator, or historian of antique furniture of North America.
