Among those who came were people of wealth and quality who transported, by sea, furnishings that were superior in craftsmanship and design. Accomplished cabinetmakers arriving later from Great Britain and the United States continued the tradition with their skills and developed taste; father taught son, and son preserved the craft. This book deals with twelve of the most eminent craftsmen in the area over the last two hundred years"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
