Without a doubt, the most lavishly illustrated New Zealand book to be published so far this century, this will also rank among the most historically significant. A definitive account of the furniture and interiors of nineteenth-century New Zealand, and of the cabinetmaking industry throughout that period, the book is crammed full of never-before-published research and images. The contents range over the early settlement, imported furnishings, campaign furniture, New Zealand timbers, the birth of a local cabinetmaking industry, the major furniture makers such as Johan Levien and William Seuffert, New Zealand design, and the great exhibitions. A ground-breaking database of cabinetmakers, most of whom are represented in photographs, is contained in an appendix. Illustrated with almost 1500 photographs, illustrations, reproductions of advertisements, working drawings, and cabinetmakers' catalogues - including 64 colour pages - this is a work of timeless appeal not only for fans of antiques and history but for all who appreciate a truly beautiful book.
