I have an old book :
The Pine Furniture of Early New england by Russell Hawes Kettell
Does anyone have any idea the Pub Date? The only date I see is 1929, but the pictures in this book appear to be modern (furniture is old looking, but not pictures)

I googled the author's name - the first link I got was at Amazon. For that title/author, ISBN 978-0486201450, it is showing a publication date of 1970 by Dover Publications.
Perhaps the original writing is old & Dover reprinted it? That might account for the "newer" photos.
Just found another listing at Antiqbooks -- it shows a 1956 printing by Dover. Description mentions that the book is a "classic" so it probably has been reprinted various times throughout the years.
What's the ISBN on your copy, if it has one?
Aha -- another one --- check this copy at Ebay out -- it states that it is allegedly a 1929 publication date, again by Dover.
