I do not have the knowledge of 17th/18th century museum quality furniture to properly rate this book. I just want to comment on the very misleading assurtion that this book covers furniture styles up to the present - unless you consider one 1961 furniture company ad and a photo of a Stickley bookcase as proper coverage of 20th century american furniture.
