Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Sloane's 1964 volume is essentially a catalog of hardware; it is divided by types of tools and the professions that would employ certain instruments. The book mostly comprises illustrations with very little text. Craftsmen and historians particularly will find this of interest. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
