Overview


Early American craftsmen made a vital contribution to the development of this country, and they are still a very important part of our heritage. This book provides illustrations, rendered for coloring, of 22 crafts that were once widespread in America but are now rarely seen.
Wigmakers, farriers (horse shoers), glassblowers, hatters, a whitesmith (tinsmith), cutlers, coopers, cabinetmakers, a coppersmith, and other tradesmen are shown in period costume at work, often in groups of two or more. On facing pages are illustrations of tools and products associated with each trade — such as the whitesmith's anchored shears, flatting hammer, tin snips, tin candlestick, tin lantern, soldering iron, etc. A caption provides basic information on the craft.
