BOOK REVIEW FOR
WELSH FURNITURE 1250-1950 :
A CULTURAL HISTORY OF CRAFTSMANSHIP AND DESIGN
BY RICHARD BEBB
taken from: www.welshfurniture.com
"Bebb devotes much space, with lavish and beautiful illustrations, to a consideration of these different furniture types. Many will relish the discussion of regional detail and the chrononlogy of different types of furniture. Inscribed pieces and those with a secure provenance have particular significance, and many important pieces are described and illustrated here for the first time...
...Richard Bebb has written an important and substantial book, the first overview of Welsh furniture since a modest study by Lloyd-Johnes and Twiston-Davies (1950)... and his book will be constantly perused for pleasure and reference. It will certainly be the point of departure for many future serious studies on Welsh furniture. The author is to be congratulated on a study which many will find indispencable, that successfully relates furntiure history to social and architectural history."
