A rare 1754 1st edition of Thomas Chippendale's Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker's Director is held by The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Williamsburg master cabinetmaker Edmund Dickinson, who counted Thomas Jefferson among his patrons in 18th century Virginia, owned a copy of Chippendale's designs, which cost about as much as a mahogany desk. When Dickinson was killed in battle during the American Revolution, the influential design book was listed in an inventory of his possessions, providing one of the few documented references to its use in America.
