This beautiful volume features 103 superb pieces of European furniture dating from the Renaissance to the late nineteenth century from the collection of The Metropolitan Museum. Examples by many outstanding European designer-craftsmen, such as Andre-Charles Boulle, Thomas Chippendale, David Roentgen, and Karl Friedrich Schinkel, are included, as well as important works by unknown makers. In detailed texts, which incorporate new archival and technical information, the authors discuss the history and significance of each piece. An introduction by Danielle Kisluk-Grosheide presents the history of the Museum's distinguished furniture collection. Colour reproductions of the furniture are presented in overall views and many details, all of which were made specifically for this book.

358 additional colour images are included on a CD-ROM at the back of the book.
