Examples of Carved Oak Woodwork  of the 16th and  17th  Centuries. , Sanders, William Bliss
96 Sanders, William Bliss Examples of Carved Oak Woodwork of the 16th and 17th Centuries.
Quartisch 1885. Hardcover. Folio 
Unpaginated. Text with 25 photo lithographs from original sketches by the author. While Mr. Sanders, a person of great architectural renown was examining the structural woodwork of ancient houses he was led to notice old furniture which had been in use for over two hundred years. It was simple, sturdy, effective, ornamental. He then set down to illustrate the furniture, woodwork, staircases, chairs, chests, bureaus, etc., and the plates and engravings in this volume were taken directly from those sketches.

This elephant sized folio is an absolutely gorgeous study of the architect and architectural sketches from a day and age long gone.

The list of illustrations in this antiquarian architectural volume include: Old House at Langley, Kent (Perspective View), Chimney Piece and Paneling in Bedroom, Details of Oak Window, Corbels, etc., Details of Oak Paneling and Doors, Elevation of Old House at Maidstone (now pulled down), Small Buffet (at the time this volume was published this was in the possession of Theodore Fry, Esq. M.P.), Old Oak Chest, Old Oak Dining Table and Old Oak Bench, Old Oak Drawing Table, Four Old Oak Chests, Six Small Oak Boxes or Desks, Four Old Oak Chests, Old Carved Oak Bedstead at Buxton, Derbyshire, Great Fosters, Egham, Chimney Piece in Entrance Hall, Old Staircase, Park House, Englefield Green, Egham that was designed by the author, Old Oak Cabinet at Nottingham, Oak Cabinet at Wingfield Manor, Derbyshire, Old Cabinet and Chest at the Friary, Newark, Notts, Old Oak Hanging Closet, Old Oak Cabinet at the Friary, Old Oak Bedstead at Bladon Castle, Three Old Oak Chairs at the Friary Newark, Old Fireplace and Chimney Corner, Two Oak Cabinets.

The perspective and elevation drawings are so detailed that they seem to jump out from the page. Very detailed diagrams with copious notes of explanation. Besides the 25 full page plates there are also 50 to 60 pages of historical and extremely informative text.

"From its origins on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, in the seventeenth century, this charming and practical style of house has been transplanted and modified to accommodate varying life styles from as far away as Hawai`i. Stanley Schuler has brought together the architectural history of the Cape Cod House with many floor-plans and photographs to be studied and enjoyed by all who live in, restore, or want to build their own Cape Cod House. Examples range from the tiny single style to double, triple, modified and "modern" interpretations--all of which were practical at the time they were built".
