The Complete Cabinet Maker, and Upholsterer's Guide : Comprising, the rudiments and principles of cabinet-making and upholstery, with familiar instructions, illustrated by examples, for attaining a proficiency in the art of drawing.
Dean & Munday, London 1829 - xii, [13]-133, [11] pages. A well preserved copy of this scarce title. Presumed first edition, with no date on title page; "Introductory Observations" dated June, 1829. Later editions had fewer or no plates. Of the sixteen plates called for, this copy retains thirteen: the five black and white engravings, both folding plates and six of the other hand-coloured plates are present. We are lacking plates 9, 14, 15, those depicting a window seat and card table / cheval dressing glass and lady's work table / a French bed. The signature of one John Harrison appears at head of title page. Recently and professionally rebacked with leather spine, retaining front and rear boards with printed paper covers. Two new endpapers at front and rear, with abrasion to top right of first at front. Pea-sized brown spot to upper right margin of pages 50-60 and occasional unobtrusive soiling elsewhere. Full sub-title reads: Comprising, the rudiments and principles of cabinet-making and upholstery, with familiar instructions, illustrated by examples, for attaining a proficiency in the art of drawing: the processes of veneering, inlaying, and buhl-work; the art of dying and staining wood, ivory, bone, tortoiseshell, &c. Directions for lackering, japanning, and varnishing; to make French polish; to prepare the best glues, cements, & compositions; and a number of receipts, particularly useful to the workman generally.
