Ince & Mayhew - Original 1st edition furniture pattern book.


A very rare complete copy of Ince & Meyhew's 18th century furniture pattern book which they published in competition with the Chippedale Director. "Consisting of above 300 designs in the most elegant taste both useful and ornamental, finely engraved in which the nature of ornament & perspective is accurately exemplified". Text is in English and French, there is an engraved dedication to George Spencer, Duke of Marlborough - and 101 plates engraved by M. Darly on 95 sheets. Of particular interest are the period hand written annotations and drawings made by the cabinet maker who must have once owned this book. Having twentieth century calf covers with gilt decorative borders and spine. Very scare in this excellent condition, very collectible and one of the most important records of furniture designs.
