"This is a book of unusual excellence, for which students of Miss Simon's fascinating but obscure subject will have very good cause to be grateful. So little is known of the lives and personalities of the great cabinet-makers of the Georgian period that the additions to our knowledge which her industry and research have enabled her to make are not only of substantial value in themselves, but will entitle her book to a distinguished place in furniture literature. The illustrations add most appreciably to the value of this well-informed, original, and authoritative piece of work, in which nothing is slurred over, and nothing taken for granted." - The Standard.
" Miss Simon's book is decidedly most attractive in form and appearance, and its copious illustrations from choice specimens in private collections are particularly excellent and interesting." - The Times.
