    Cue the Jaws music.

    Just beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Kevin says:

    Yes, please.

  4. Vincent says:

    Encore, encore!

  5. Lee says:

    Yes, but I can’t see and feel it until WIA.

    Lee (the saw guy)

  6. James says:

    At what point is it permissible, to publicly announce a brain-boner?

  7. I have a beautiful set of one of the 500 special reproductions made in 1976 for sale if someone wants it. See Benchcraft’s offering of it a bit back. Original size (huge!) but not 237 yrs. old. They are something else.

  8. John Cashman says:

    What year were those volumes published? Beautiful books, aside from the content.

  9. J. Abraham says:

    Roubo touched that….

    CAN WE GET A TRANSLATION OF THE VOLUME BY ROUBO? OH YES PLEASE. I WANT TO READ IT. I DO READ FRENCH BUT WELL 500 + pages of 18th century French might be a bit tedious. I KNOW THE MARQUETRY ONE MIGHT BE PUBLISHED BUT WHY CAN’T WE HAVE THOSE WORKS OF HIS ALL PUBLISHED AGAIN AND TRANSLATED. SOON.

    I’ve just returned from Paris and the musee des arts decoratifs. there we saw a table displayed with just the pattern shown in photo 2. Formidable!

  12. Bill Elliott says:

    It’s not nice to tease.

  13. Rascal says:

    OMG, that’s so beautiful! Just as a side note, the gangbangers will be disappointed that wearing one’s hat sideways isn’t a new and different fad! They’ll be so crushed! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing Chris!

  14. Jesse says:

    WE’RE NOT WORTHY! WE’RE NOT WORTHY!

  15. Tim Henriksen says:

    I think the LAP version should stick with the same paper stock and be leather bound. Wasn’t one of Nuttig’s rules “if it ain’t broke, don’t rely on a dust jacket”?

  16. Larry Williams says:

    The more images I see of early French totes the more I wonder if they weren’t made of a cast or forged metal. Have any of these survived?
