English and American Tool Builders

£17.99

Product description

Starting from the premise that the most important contributions to tool building up to
the end of the nineteenth and into the early 20th century came from
English (the author probably means British) and American tool builders, the
author, in this book, tries to bring out the importance of the work and
influence of the great tool builders on the industry of their time. The scope
of the book is evident in the table of contents seen in the second image
included with this listing.

This copy is the first, 1916, edition but was subsequently rebound probably in 1984 when it
was part of a university library. There is evidence of previous repair which was made good by the rebinding.

There are 50 black and white plates and a frontispiece together with 7 illustrations within
the text.

Binding in very good condition. Good condition internally. Some grubby marks and a few
pages show foxing. Adhesive tape residue evident in some places. No dust
wrapper.
