The Heritage of Upper Canadian Furniture
Seller ID: 165
Toronto: Van Nostrand Reinhold, 1978. First edition. Large Quarto with more than 1300 illustrations in colour and b&w, folding map; in maroon cloth with gilt lettering, pictorial dust jacket. A 'study in the survival of formal and vernacular styles from Britain, America, and Europe', Pain's book stands as the single most influential and authoritative work on the furniture of 19th century English Canada. It is not uncommon for auction cataloguers to cite Pain (as in, 'See Pain, p. 211, fig. 537') to authenticate and suggest the value of a period sales item. A bright, clean copy in a protective Brodart wrapper.
