Описание: Victor Chinnery's scholarly work covers the history and development of furniture in oak and kindred timbers in the British Isles and New England, from the Middle Ages through to 1800. The subject is broken down into a logical sequence of aspects and each section is generously illustrated. The furniture shown ranges from the finest examples of the period, to the sort of sturdy and workmanlike pieces which modern collectors will find affordable.
The study of oak furniture is a remarkably rich and varied subject, which reflects at several levels the social and domestic life of many generations of our ancestors. Victor Chinnery has explored and clarified many important topics, whilst fully realising that scholarship in this field is still very much in its infancy.
One of the most profound influences on the appearance of furniture in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries was the system of rigid demarcations operated by the different furniture making trades, and in which the work of the joiners was the most important. The author explains the techniques and materials of the different trades, as well as other considerations of vital interest to the modern collector and curator.
The furniture of Connecticut and Massachusetts in the seventeenth century is presented as an extension of the range of styles to be found in other English provinces at the same date.
Описание: Take a leisurely stroll through one of the most charming and desirable areas on Marthas Vineyard -- or anywhere in the country, for that matter. Founded in 1835 as a Methodist campground, the Marthas Vineyard Campmeeting Association began as a group of tents surrounding an impressive tabernacle. Soon the tents were replaced by cozy Victorian cottages featuring bright colors, welcoming porches, and sumptuous decoration. Lovingly preserved, often with little changed since the nineteenth century, these cottages today transport residents and visitors back to an era when life was simpler and community spirit thrived. View a wonderful selection of the more than 300 cottages still remaining in the campground (now a National Historic Landmark), plus many of the larger and more ornate homes in the surrounding Oak Bluffs area. Delight in the architectural details of these fascinating structures, many designed by the prolific S.F. Pratt. This book will be a treasured memento for all who have visited and been captivated by this enchanting island.
