Beautiful photos of the early Breuer and van der Rohe tubular steel chairs, early catalogues and a nice section on how to date items for collectors. Chapters include: Thonet-A Family Concern, Wood Bending Techniques, From Biedermeier to Bauhaus, From Bent Wood to Tubular Steel, Vintage Models, Dating Items, Care and Repair. Thonet pioneered the radical innovation of bending veneer, then solid wood to make bent wood chairs and other furniture. A great reference.
