Encyclopedia of Antique Trunks, Version 2.0! Nearly 45 years of research, thousands of photos, diagrams, trunk makers’ labels, lithographs, facts, addresses, dates, patents all on CD so it’s affordable AND portable! NOTE: THE CONTENTS OF THE CD ARE AVAILABLE AS A TWO-VOLUME KINDLE eBOOK, ASIN: B06WD5YLWG and ASIN: B06WD5VFVW ON AMAZON.COM.

Friends, family, customers and visitors have suggested for years the need for a really good, definitive book about antique trunks. Actually two books have been suggested, one about the intriguing history of trunks and another book about how to restore them. This is an update of our first attempt at documenting what we know about antique trunks. Sometime in the future we hope to put together a book about the proper methods of restoring them.

The encyclopedia represents over 44 years of research from thousands of sources. From our beginning in 1972 we have saved everything we could possibly find about antique trunks into a huge collection of materials. At first it was hard copy then into a database that if printed out in hard copy today would result in thousands of pages. It’s difficult to produce a paper book that size that would be affordable for most of us. A few years ago we started planning a book on disc and after much work we are able to finally offer it to the public. For the sake of clarity we shall call it henceforth our book.

The time line of trunk styles contains hundreds of dated ads, photos and other facts that will help you identify and date your antique trunk. Included in the book are thousands of photos, diagrams, trunk makers’ labels, lithographs, facts, addresses, dates, patents; we’ve even included things we hope you’ll find as humorous and interesting. The section on trunk makers alone contains references to nearly 13,000 entities we have found associated with antique trunks. The information here contains names of makers, manufacturers, sellers etc. along with their addresses and corresponding years at that address. This information can help you determine the age of your trunk, especially if the trunk contains a maker’s label. If you want to see if your family had anything to do with making antique trunks or selling them then many list proprietors, owners, presidents and such; some entities even have employee lists. All this information goes back as far as the 1700s, from all over the world. Many patents from the US and British patent databases are included, along with associated drawings. Trunks that belonged to celebrities like Isaac Hayes, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Holliday and Bela Lugosi are featured. You can see the Table of Contents and samples below.

Descriptions of trunk styles, parts, hardware are given. Several trunk maker catalogues are included from such companies as Stallman, Everlast, even Montgomery Wards.

The book is very easy to use, you just insert it into the CD/DVD drive of your Windows® computer*. Nothing is loaded onto your computer; the program runs completely from the disc so there are no security worries. The program has its own browser and operates much as regular Web browsers most of us are used to. There are back and forward controls, a powerful search facility, printing capabilities and much more. FREE SHIPPING ANYWHERE IN US; $14 WORLDWIDE.
