Save your money. This book (let) could be so much more, except the author chose to publish with photocopies for all of the illustrations! If that was not bad enough, the author (or publisher) should have darkened the photocopies so that they could be clearly seen!

As I said, this book could be so much more, but for that to happen, the author & publisher should have taken the time to open the cover and actually look at the drawings! The title is "Identifying......A Pictorial Guide......". This implies the pictures are an integral part of the book's presentation. This is a major fail! I would return it, except it is Amazon Prime and Amazon should NOT pay the price of a poor product by reimbursing shipping costs. I hope my bad review keeps a few from purchasing this book, thus hitting the author & publisher in the wallet. Maybe next time, they will take the time to actually look at their product.

This book is a pictorial guide to American furniture styles with small faded, black & white, photos that look as if they were run through a copier machine a hundred times over. Thus, it's ability to illustrate the defining characteristics of each style is rendered almost nil. Being the only book of its kind that I'm aware of, I would still recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more about its subject. But, prepare to be underwhelmed by the photo quality. A version of this book with large, high quality photos would be worth it's weight in gold, but the publisher failed miserably in that aspect. One can hope it gets re-done with quality photos, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

If you like to have a basic understanding of furniture, then this book is for you.

The information is fine but the photo's are from a copier and the quality is so poor it renders the book useless.

This pictorial and descriptive reference is a great size to tuck in my purse. Because I was expecting a more elaborate book, I gave the paper back 3 stars.
