Brawer, Nicholas A.
Britain's Portable Empire. Campaign Furniture of the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian Periods.

Katonah Museum of Art: 2001.

One comes away from this exhibition catalog with two firmly fixed ideas- the English, even when in the wilds of the furthest corners of the Earth, liked to be comfortable, and they were ingenious in the ways they managed to do it. Here are chairs, desks, beds, and other furniture that come apart and fold up small enough to, if not fit in your pocket, at least fit in two pockets...

Softcover. 10.5"x7", 36 pages, color and b/w illustrations. Fine.
