This light, elegant Arts and Crafts furniture, characterized by long graceful corbels and arched stretchers, was introduced in April 1917 and was popular with the public for years after Gustav Stickley and most other leading Arts and Crafts furniture manufacturers went out of business or moved on to historical period motifs.

This book reprints the complete contents of the 1918 catalog together with the original November 1918 price list. The catalog features 75 different forms of Puritan-style mission furniture. The book includes a scholarly Introduction illustrated with period photographs.
