Full Description

Folio. viii+87+(1)pp, inc. 87 litho designs. Publisher’s quarter cloth.

A collection of designs for various pieces of furniture by the English cabinet-maker Percival Hildesley, whose work was popular during the first decades of the twentieth century. Hildesley’s designs seem fairly conservative, but there are some interesting designs for entire rooms, such as a ‘design for the treatment of a basement as a restaurant’.
