    well as rules of principal designers, makers and

    fully-captioned color photographs add a detailed
    commentary on significant pieces. A glossary of
    terms supplements the text.

9
Scope (contd)
  • The balanced presentations of historical
    perspective and thorough analysis of specific
    examples presented here makes The Illustrated
    History of Antiques the essential single volume
    reference for the dedicated collector or the
    general reader.

10
Currency
  • Current in that every category of antiques is
    discussed by a well know expert.

11
Intended Purpose
  • Dedicated collectors can use this for reference
    as well as general readers educating themselves
    in the history of antiques. The general public
    might be interested in getting ideas about items
    they feel might have antique value.

12
Intended Purpose/Additional Purposes (contd)
  • They would be able to evaluate and make decisions
    as far as if they would want to bring their items
    to an appraiser for an appraisal at a fee. If
    you are not near an antique roadshow and have to
    go to a professional appraiser on your own you
    most likely would be charged a large fee.

13
Authority
  • A respected authority on antiques Huon Mallalieu
    has published articles in many general and
    specialized publications including The Antiques
    Trade Gazette, House Garden and Connoisseur.

14
Authority (contd)
  • He is general editor and coordinator of The
    Popular Antiques Yearbook and was the Sales Room
    writer for Country Life. Mr. Mallalieu was also
    cataloguer of watercolors at Christies in
    London.

15
Personal Impression
  • I liked the book of course I watch and enjoy the
    Antique Roadshow whenever I can catch it. This
    book has just exquisite, very rich and fine items
    pictured in color. It was a pleasure to look at
    them.

16
Physical Format
  • Book only at this time.

17
Special Features
  • After looking over the book and then trying to
    find images for this presentation I found the
    book deals with very fine antiques. There were
    not that many images online that compared to
    those in the book.

18
Reference Uses
  • An art history student should find this book
    useful as a reference tool. Say, what styles
    were popular during different periods, for
    example, was furniture coordinated, upholstered
    and matched in color and fabric during the 15th
    century

19
Reference Uses (contd)
  • Well no, the introduction to furniture states
    that coordination developed about the 17th
    century after the Renaissance.
