The stylistic developments of the period are considered in detail, and attention is given to the individual work of the important furniture designers. Furniture-making is dealth with in its widest aspects: the author discusses patent furniture, a rapidly expanding field at this time, and there are chapters on work from theprovinces, the economic structure of the industry, the materials and techn iques, and the export trade, which now proves to have been of considerable extent and influence." - from the dustjacket.

Antique Furniture of Quebec : Four Centuries of Furniture Making. First Edition in dustjacket, LESSARD, Michel.
174 LESSARD, Michel. Antique Furniture of Quebec : Four Centuries of Furniture Making. First Edition in dustjacket
McClelland & Stewart, Toronto, 2002, ISBN:0771046707 2002 0771046707 / 9780771046704 
LESSARD, Michel. Antique Furniture of Quebec : Four Centuries of Furniture Making. Translated by Jane Macaulay and Alison McGain, assisted by Benjamin Waterhouse. (Toronto) : McClelland & Stewart, (2002). First Printing. Pp [ 1]-543,(1). Illustrated. Index. Triple Column. 4to, illustrated orange and cream glossy paper-covered boards.

“Antique Furniture of Québec brings together hundreds of sumptuous full-colour photographs and an authoritative text by Michael Lessard that together describe every phase in the history of Quebec furniture. The result is a book that is both beautiful in itself and an unparalleled resource. It is essential for everyone – collectors, scholars, decorators – with an interest in the subject.

Michel Lessard emphasizes the cosmopolitan and eclectic nature of Québec society and its openness to outside influences. He draws upon both textual and photographic sources to demonstrate that Quebeckers, from the first years of settlement to the present time, have adopted craft and design ideas from all over the Western world. The three cultures that have shaped Québec society, that of France, Great Britain, and the United States, have naturally been the most powerful influences. Lessard traces their effect while, at the same time, demonstrating the often original and creative response to these influences by designers, artists, and craftspeople.

'Furniture,' writes Michel Lessard, 'is an open book containing a multitude of stories.' This lavish and authoritative book is certain to continue telling its stories for years to come.” (from the dj).

"Its all in these pages: from the ornate and often heavy furniture of eighteenth century France to the primitive, Shaker-influenced pine furniture of rural Québec, to William Morris and Art Deco and, finally, the Modern era.

Of particular interest is the series of homes that the author has tracked down, each typical of a particular era and each preserved with furnishings appropriate to the era in place. By this and other means, Michel Lessard masterfully combines an appreciation of the historical and social context in which furniture is made and used with a thorough understanding of the craft and business of furniture-making.".

"With more than 500 pages and 1500 photopgraphs and pictures, this book is a must-have for anyone with an interest in the history of Québec's antique furniture" - from the rear.

Contents :
1. By Way of Introduction... Quebec Furniture and the Ever-Changing Story of Stylistic Movements.
2. Provincial Traditions of the Ancien Regime and Classicism: Furniture in the French Manner.
3. The Merging and Melding of Cultural Influences: Neoclassical Furniture in the St. Lawrence Valley.
4. Traditional Craftsmanship Meets the Industrial Revolution: Revival-Era Furniture in Quebec.
5. Between Historicism and Industrial Functionalism: Pre-Modern Furniture in Quebec.
6. Mass Production and Studio Design: Modern Furniture in Quebec.
Conclusion: Post-Modernity at the Turn of the Century and the Millennium: Quebec Furniture at the Threshold of a New Era.
