Softcover New This lavishly illustrated tribute to Philadelphia's many well-preserved examples of colonial ironwork features 182 crisp black-and-white photographs and 41
measured drawings. These imaginatively rendered ironworks appear in the railings and gates of churchyards, on the marble steps of town houses, in the balconies and lanterns of banks and other buildings, and elsewhere. Architects, antique lovers, craftspeople, and historians will savor this inspiring collection. You get much the same info as a multitude of other forging books, but you'll find something a little different here. Remember, this is not about training professional blacksmiths. This was published for people like us. As a result you'll find info on forging small links, connecting rods, and even small crankshafts on the home forge for use in building model engines. You get a book loaded with details, and like the others, you'll wish it were longer because it delivers the goods.
