Roberts: Tools for the Trades and Crafts.
This is a reprint, with much commentary by the author, of an 18th century pattern book published originally by R. Timmons & Sons. The pages within contain hundreds of standard patterns for hand tools of all trades, but especially woodworking tools. From these patterns we can see that many of the forms of the tools did not change for several centuries, in fact, the same plates that appeared in the 18th century editions of these books were still used well into the late 19th century. The artistry is of an exceptional quality, clearly showing the scale and design of each tool. This, combined with Roberts' excellent commentary, makes it an excellent reference book. It is in excellent condition, printed in 1976, and has only light wear to the dustjacket.
