VG (bookplate from previous owner, otherwise clean. ) Blue and illus. wraps, 166 pp, 210 BW illustrations. A fascinating and informative survey of the metalworking trades in early America. Each one is covered with its own separate chapter: the blacksmith, whitesmith, edgetool maker, cutler, locksmith, wheelwright, gunsmith, nailer, and tinsmith. Introductory chapters describe and explain the blast furnace, forge, and iron foundry, processes that provided the raw material for the early metal trades. A nice overview, to be sure.
