1 John Andrews
British Antique Furniture: Price Guide and Reasons for Values
Antique Collectors Club; Suffolk, UK; 2007; 1851494448 / 9781851494446; Fifth Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
For the past thirty years this book has, in its various editions, outsold all others on British antique furniture simply because it is unique in explaining what to look for when assessing the value of individual pieces. In this, the fifth edition, the huge financial importance of patination and colour has been explained and illustrated – something which has become increasingly important in recent years. This classic guide consists of some 1,200 photographs of furniture found in shops and auction rooms throughout the country with the author’s down-to-earth comments on important features which affect individual prices. The reader will come to understand the rules and prejudices which apply while the eye will become aware of gradations of quality. He will come instinctively to assess the workmanship and how all this affects the final price tag. This is, above all, a reference book for the practising collector and dealer, a work from which the memory may be refreshed and points checked. Each item is clearly referenced. This enables the annual price revision list to be compiled with a ready cross-reference. The list is available in January/February each year on a private subscription basis and details are contained within the book. “John Andrews has an encyclopaedic knowledge of antiques and history, qualifications for writing the first of the longest-running of the antique price guides” Sunday Telegraph * The best-selling guide to British antique furniture for over thirty years, now in its fifth edition * Explains in plain language what to look for when assessing value * Over 1,250 superb photographs show just how and why values can vary so greatly * Colour plates show the financial importance of patination * Contains revised prices in both £ Sterling and US $ Printed Pages: 432 with 137 coloured and 1150 b/w illustrations. 017862

Starting to Collect Antique Furniture
Antique Collectors Club; Suffolk, UK; 2007; 1851494499 / 9781851494491; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Furniture is a prime interest of most antique collectors, but few books attempt to give the beginner an overall view of the history and development of furniture design. This book, structured chronologically and then by country within each time period, starts with the primary medieval period and follows right through the dominance of successive Italian, French and English influences up to 1900. In identifying, describing and illustrating those major fashions and styles whose originals were copied and adapted from country to country over at least two centuries, the author has used his well-proven research and experience to explain an apparently confusing subject with the clarity for which his other books are celebrated. The way in which he shows how so-called national styles are related to neighbouring and even distant originals in other countries makes this history of antique furniture a fascinating and illuminating read as well as a handy and portable reference. This copiously illustrated book covers all the principal European countries and the United States of America in a simple, easily-digested form which shows all the major design features necessary for the understanding of many furniture styles. Never before has such a comprehensive survey been published in so workmanlike yet so concise a form. Practical and compendious, it will serve as a primer for beginners as well as an aide-mémoire for experienced collectors. Printed Pages: 192 with colour illustrations throughout. 017861
