- Source: eBay
This is a hardcover book by R.A. Salaman titled "DICTIONARY OF TOOLS - USED IN THE WOODWORKING AND ALLIED TRADES c. 1700 - 1970). This book was published in 1977 by George Allen & Unwin of Great Britain. It comes complete with the original dust jacket.
Since its first publication in 1975, R.A. Salaman's Dictionary of Woodworking Tools has come to be recognized as a definitive pioneering reference work, one of unparalleled value to craftsmen, collectors, antique dealers and all who are interested in the subject of woodworking tools and their uses. His rich language describes and explains the tools, not only of the more obvious woodworking trades (such as the cabinetmaker, chairmaker, joiner, coachbuilder, cooper, shipwright, plane maker, wheelwright and instrument maker) but of the less obvious trades as well, such as broom and brush makers, tree feller, hoop maker, upholsterer, millwright, coffin maker and window maker. The present edition is a substantial enlargement of the original work, revised and updated by Philip Walker, himself and authoritative historian-collector of tools.
Includes 545 pages and thousands of illustrations. It measures approximately 8" x 10". This book is USED and I rate it in FINE CONDITION overall. .... read more
