    Covers most areas pertaining to title

    A good reference book that I would grade average.I thought that the information was very general, that more attention should have been given to dating and origin of manufacture. The book did however cover most areas that one would expect with adequate photography although few closeups. A good history of iron making in America is included.Price list for collectors would be helpful.
