Williamsburg, Virginia: The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, 1974. Softbound. VG. Color illustrated wraps. Unpaginated, 164 items are listed and annotated, some in color most in bw. "The range of objects described and pictured in this catalog spans almost two hundred years of time and varies in quality from the most sophisticated examples of a given form to simple, rather standard items of little artistic merit. Unlike many museums, Colonial Williamsburg has always endeavored to obtain not only the best high-style productions of the major urban centers, but has also made a conscious effort to acquire simple, plain examples of furniture to furnish its several taverns, kitchens, laundries, and the bedrooms of the smaller houses. Thus in this catalog a magnificent block-front piece of Newport furniture may be seen in close proximity to a Windsor chair or a rather crude folding bed. Each of these objects is important in its own way as interpretive material, and to omit the less grand obejcts from the catalog would fail to convey the whole story. The New England furniture has been acquried over an almost fifty-year period of time. ..." (intro).
