NY: Bonanza. Very Good+ in Very Good- dust jacket. 1968. Reprint. Hardcover. Binding is almost as new. Very minor edge foxing. Contents are almost as new. Very minor wear and soil on the complete DJ. ; First Printing of Bonanza's Reprint Edition. 9-7/8" Tall, 536pp. Medium brown cloth, bright gold spine lettering and designs. Index. Dozens of B/w photos throughout text. ANTIQUES. This handsome volume rationalizes price movements by different styles of antique furntiue over the years in order to show (1) the effects of prosperity on antique sales, (2) changes in taste, and (3) alternating periods of preference for antiques and for 'modern. ' Alto instructs potential antique buyers on approximate amounts to pay for particular pieces of antique furniture. Goes a long way toward helping the inexperienced antique buyer to determine what is genuine and what is fake. The recognition of quality is not always instinctive ; to a large extent it must be learned, and the many descriptions and illustrations in this book provide a start for the prospective antique buyer in recognizing what is fine and beautiful. ; 9-7/8" Tall; 536 pages .
