I don't think anyone proofread the original manuscript. I counted over twenty typographical errors and viewed at least two misidentified items. The photographs are wonderful and the content good, but when you see that many typos it cheapens the product to the point of nearly being humorous.

I waited to see what was next and wondered about their claim of being a wonderful coffee table reference. Personally it has become more of an embarrassment to the typesetters art that conveys the fact they were irresponsible in the publication of this book.

3 stars is being generous. Learn to read before you print another book.

This book was clearly written by people who have a passion for the trades and arts of the past. Lots of research and thought went into creating such a comprehensive account of the people who provided early California families with their treasured furniture, jewelry and housewares. I discovered it when I went to Witherell's website after seeing Brian Witherell do an appraisal on the Antiques Roadshow. He and his dad are both regulars on the show I just love to watch! I have this book as a sort of keepsake and reference for my own occasional purchases. It's great niche book for anyone wanting to know more about California's heritage of creativity.

This book is the single best compilation of fine antiques from the gold rush era of California available today. From beautiful Quartz Jewelry to fabulous images of saloon advertising art (and much more!) this book is a must for collectors of old west memorabilia. The photography and layout of the book are wonderful. Put this book as a must on your acquisition list!
