In 1772, a group of Philadelphia craftsmen published Prices of Cabiner at Chair Work, a 36-page booklet listing furniture forms, retail prices, and journeymen's wages. Rediscovered in 2003, the single surviving copy of this remarkable publication, produced here in a facsimile edition with an introduction and illustrated guide, provides an extraordinary view into the world of Philadelphia's 18th-century furniture makers.
