and reproductions from original trade catalogues.

sketches and a directory of notable firms, as well as chapters on types of
woods and finishes used and fakes and copies.
The book measures approximately 22.5 cm by 29cm
In very good used condition with only minor signs of age and use. The dust
jacket is very good indeed save for a scuff on the spine at the top. It isnot
price-clipped and there is a previous owner's label on the front end paper.

standard work on late Victorian and Edwardian furniture.

Payment and Postage
Paypal is accepted and I do not add a surcharge to cover their fees. UK buyers
only may also pay by cheque or postal order. If it's a cheque, please allow 7
to 10 days for it to clear. It may be possible for overseas customers to pay by
another means, such as bank transfer, but this is by prior arrangement only.
All buyers please make contact within 3 days of auction. Payment is required
within 7 days.
All non-paying bidders are, without exception, reported to eBay. This is not
for the sake of being vindictive, but because eBay charges retrospective fees
calculated on the actual sale price of items and this money needs to be
retrieved. It's hard enough to make ends meet on here as it is! Thank you for
your understanding. Please refer to eBay's policy on non-payment for more
information, including its ramifications for the bidder.
Condition of items
Please note that, unless clearly stated otherwise, my listings are for
vintage/antique items and therefore, by definition, are not going to be in the
same condition you would expect from a brand new item. Please be assured that I
always endeavour to offer the most accurate description possible of the item's
condition and take multiple illustrative photographs.
Vintage electrical items
Unless clearly stated otherwise in the description, vintage electrical items
are sold in their original condition so should be safety checked by an
electrician before use.
