First edition, published by Harry N. Abrams.

“Campaign furniture, designed to be folded up, packed and carried on the march, has been used by traveling armies since the time of Julius Caesar and even earlier. With the rise and expansion of the British Empire in the 18th and early 19th centuries, as British gentlemen came to dominate the army, government, and commerce in colonies throughout the world, the finest British furniture makers produced for this new class of traveler some of the most stylish pieces of portable furniture ever made.”

This book displays some of the most beautiful pieces made between 1740 and 1914- chairs, tables, desks, bookcases and even sofas from renowned designers such as Chippendale, Hepplewhite and Sheraton.
