It is a wonderful book full of the best examples of Early American furniture and detailing the differences between those examples of the good, the better and the best. Showing the photos side by side you can see the sweep of a really fine curve or carved shell versus the more pedestrian examples - although admittedly even the merely good furniture is truly wonderful. The amount of research represented by the sheer number of photos is really awe inspiring and you get to see them through the finely tuned eye of one of the very best dealers in Early American furniture. Whether you collect the furniture or just want eye candy it''s a superb book.

I found this book to be very helpful. Sack points out clearly what features of the furniture contribute most to the value. While these factors will be somewhat different for furniture from England or other countries, it is an excellent guide to American furniture, and a good base of knowledge from which to begin looking at other antiques. While some reviewers have complained about the black and white photos, I didn''t find this to be a significant detriment for me. Had all the photos been in color, I think the book would have been prohibitively expensive.

Masterpiece of a book. Get ready to drool. Albert Sack put his soul into this book, and it''s even better than the original (it''s in color!) Every sentence and every picture conveys a life spent in the presence of greatness. Get it.

No mention of maker names, so relatively useless. Heavy, so not good to take on an outing.

This is a book filled with images and personal commentary about the style. The author is generous with poor rhetoric and horrible commentary of works they claim are of “good” quality. Ten pages of this garbage and I had enough of the attitude. Nothing to learn here at all, the author only offers poor comments and nothing of value. Please do yourself a favor and skip this garbage.

If you have any interest at all in Early American Furniture, buy this book! Mr. Sack is one of the most knowledgable experts on this subject. This book shows you the subtle differences in what makes a piece good and what makes a piece great. Having his experise on this subject is invaluable if you have any interest in searching for early American antique furniture. He learned from his father, who had an amazing eye, and Mr. Sack shows you what he has learned. He is reknowned as an expert in the field of Early American Furniture. It is a shame that this book is out of print and that one must spend a great deal for a used copy, but this book is worth every penny. Maybe we will get lucky and he will revise it again, but I would not hold my breath.

Not a lot can be said here. If you want to see the best and have comparisons to look at as well. Or if you just want drool over real furniture this is the book. A must have for anyone who aspires to knowing what is truly art and mastery in furniture design.
