A lavish presentation of this fine Milwaukee collection. Two hundred pieces of seventeenth-, eighteenth-, and early nineteenth-century American furniture. Each entry includes all known information about the particular object's history, cost, design sources, regional origin and unique qualities, as well as a photograph of the piece and a description of its salient construction features. Complimenting this rich catalogue are two essays. The first summarizes stylistic developments in the period 1680-1820 and seeks to place the Stone collection in historical perspective. The second, by Stanley Stone himself, discusses a personal approach to collecting that mixes obvious aesthetic joy and keen judgment two qualities everywhere evident in this remarkable collection."
