“Devoting himself chiefly to medieval art, M. Viollet-le-Duc, like our own Pugin, mastered the details of ancient furniture, iron-work, tapestry, glass, and other subsidiary applications of design in a manner which made him the highest authority on this vast subject. The famous 'Dictionnaire Raisonné de l'Architecture,' published in ten volumes, between 1854 and 1868, has its sequel in the 'Dictionnaire Raisonné du Mobilier Français' of 1858. The two works form a treasure of learning, illustrated with the rarest kind of draughtmanship."-Athenæum, Sept. 27th, 1879.
