Book: Early British Chairs & Seats
- I have just received:
Jellinek, Tobias. Early British Chairs & Seats From 1500 to 1700.
Woodbridge: Antique Collectors' Club, 2009. 30cm., hardcover, 320pp.,
500 color illus. ISBN: 9781851495818
List Price: $125.00 (available at a substantial discount from various sources)
The photos are excellent and I strongly recommend the section on the
Glastonbury chairs. Dating is by the usual antique/art history
criteria. I do wish that scientific techniques (dendrochronology,
etc) were used, but this not usually available. Footnotes and a more
extensive bibliography would also be nice.
