“Collectors and students of American furniture look forward annually to the publication of American Furniture, the journal of record for the field, launched in 1993. Each one is filled with articles on furniture history, connoisseurship, and conservation and with book reviews about American furniture from the 17th through the 20th centuries. A bibliography of recent writing in the field, compiled by Gerald W.R. Ward, is always appended. The entire 2015 volume is devoted to Pennsylvania furniture.” —Lita Solis-Cohen, Maine Antique Digest

American Furniture has energized the field, inspiring scholars to publish their research and insights. It provides, not only for the scholarly community, but for all interested parties, the latest thinking on the subjects.”—Peter M. Kenny, co-president of Classical American Homes Preservation Trust

The essays are insightful, probing, and illuminating.
