When it arrived I'd forgotten I ordered the hardcover and so I was surprised by the weight of the package. However, that's the one that I was sure was the right book, so I'm glad to have it. It's the edition I expected and in decent condition with signs of use, especially on the dust cover, but only as much as to be expected. Still had some notes from the previous owner tucked in the pages. Honestly, it helps studying a bit.

One of the last classes I had to take at art school required this as a text book. The disc included is "ok" as it's just a digital timeline. What I would REALLY have enjoyed and it would've made research so much easier is a digital version of the book. One massive PDF. Carrying that PDF on my iPad would be a lot lighter than tugging a book around. Not complaining, just a suggestion. However, anyone really passionate about interior design history should take a look at this book.

I purchased this book for a history of architecture and furnishing class I'm taking and found it to be one of the better textbooks I've bought. It gives the general history of each time era along with classic signature pieces of furniture and architecture designs that classify that period. It contains a good amount of pictures, a nice glossary and a cd. I haven't used the cd, but it is an interactive timeline which could be helpful. What I like most about this book which many others don't do, is that it covers all time periods from prehistoric to the 21st century. Most books similar to this one end around the 1960's-80's so this book is more useful in that it continues to up til our current time. One last thing, this is more of a basic or beginner level book, so if you're looking for a super detailed advanced level course book this isn't it.

great book, i like it better than "Interior Design and Decoration By Stanley Abercrombie / Sherrill Whiton" but if money is not an issue buy the new edition

it kinda seems to skip a few thousand years. lol... but its an amazing book that has some wonderful pictures of interiors that showcase a few neat pieces of furniture as well! the expertly detailed woodwork photographed on page 227 is something that EVERYONE should see.

I absolutely love this book. I originally got it for a class and it's amazing how much valuable info it has. This is my Interior Design history bible and I think every designer and student would really benefit from reading this.
paperback. Interesting read. Should be titled History of Architecture rather than Interior Design.
