The Antiques & Residential Contents Guide – Update Your Resource Library with the Newest Edition
Thanks to the tireless efforts of its current co-editors Libby Holloway, ISA CAPP, and Michael Logan, ISA CAPP, one of our primary texts, A Guide to the Identification and Evaluation of Antiques and Residential Contents, has received notable revisions for its 2015 edition. Previous versions were published in 1996 and 2011, with the latest changes in form and content ensuring that the current guide reflects industry trends, best practices, and ever-evolving appraising procedures. The 2015 edition features significant additions, including color photographs, as well as brand-new sections regarding the writing of reports, tips for research, and more.

The ISA Antiques & Residential Contents (ARC) course was developed to provide specialty knowledge to those appraisers who cover the world of general household contents, be they antique or contemporary. This manual, which contains extensive information on 19th and 20th century furniture and accessories that forms the basis for how appraisers examine residential property, is not a price guide but rather a how-to source for procedures that include identification, evaluation, and connoisseurship.

From the preface by Leon Castner, ISA CAPP, Director of Education:
This is one of the only texts that cover the contents of a house from attic to basement, wall décor to floor coverings. It provides the information necessary for anyone seeking to become an appraiser, dealer, auctioneer, or estate sale agent, or anyone seeking a comprehensive and thorough foundation of the world of antiques, collectibles, and general residential contents.

This book has proven itself to be a crucial guide to ISA members seeking reference to the world of antiques and residential contents. Purchase your copy of A Guide to the Identification and Evaluation of Antiques and Residential Contents from ISA’s online store.
