Issued in conjunction with a 1978 exhibition that "attempts to explore, define and, in some cases, suggest possible explanations for a number of perplexing problems surrounding one of America's greatest artistic creations, the Philadelphia chair, both in its earliest Wainscot and William and Mary periods, as well as in it highest stages of development."
