Within each category the pieces are arranged in chronological order so that the evolution of each type is clearly seen. The complexity of the subject is best explained by a very large number of illustrations and this is the reason why some 6,000 appear within this book. As the furniture trade developed, so manufacturers and retailing split. This Pictorial Dictionary, the first major study on the wide range of furniture produced in this century, is the standard work of reference on the subject. The Dictionary is made up from forty-nine contemporary design and pattern books issued by manufacturers such as Heal s, Smith, Tatham, King, Pugin, Morris and Liberty s. Each piece of furniture has been sorted into its physical characteristics (e. g. table with three legs) so that it is only necessary to glance down the list of contents to identify into which category any particular piece belongs. The nineteenth century produced dozens of independent designers, particularly towards the end of the period. This change in the structure of the industry made full use of highly individual interpretations of Gothic, Renaissance, Elizabethan, Naturalistic styles, Egyptian, Old French, Louis XIV, Louis XV and Italian decorations, all applied to a wide variety of furniture. Competition between retailers and the use of the new design books resulted in a large number of designs, not only new ones but also a constant looking backwards to earlier centuries for inspiration. Catalogues began to be used in retail shops as they are today.
