This extensively illustrated book brings to life the history of furniture and furniture styles, not only as an industry, but also as a prism for the way early New Zealanders conducted their lives and constructed their identities in the places they came to call home. Includes details of tools and methods of construction. A very large and heavy book. An oustanding piece of work and very scarce.
