The Complete Cabinet Maker And Upholsterer's Guide, by J. Stokes, was in continuous publication from the first London edition of 1829 through to the final Philadelphia edition of 1904.
This, the 1829 edition, is the only one to feature eleven hand colored plates of furniture of the period.
As a testimony to it's importance and relevance to the furniture making trades of the 19th and early 20th centuries, the text of The Complete Cabinet Maker And Upholsterer's Guide, later retitled The Complete Cabinet Maker And Upholsterer's Companion for the American market by H. C. Baird, remained largely untouched for 75 years.
Gary Roberts, Publisher of Toolemera Press, has reproduced The Complete Cabinet Maker And Upholsterer's Guide in full color in order to provide the reader with the experience of reading a rare and valuable book. All Toolemera Press titles are produced from the originals in his personal collection.
