Brawer, Nicholas A.
British Campaign Furniture. Elegance under Canvas, 1740-1914.

New York Harry N. Abrams: 2001.

A beautifully-illustrated study of that most British of innovations- campaign furniture. Although furniture that can be folded up and transported has been used by armies since Alexander the Great, the British perfected the form as their global empire expanded in the 18th and 19th centuries, and English furniture manufacturers rose to the task. This is the first full-length study of the subject, and is superbly done.

Hardcover. 9"x11", 231 pages, color and b/w illustrations, dj. A fine copy.
