This encyclopedia, a labor of love by an avid tool collector, provides an illustration, description, and the purpose of practically every variety of American hand tool, including both tools made and sold in North America and those known to have been used in North America. Primarily written to facilitate rapid identification, with illustrations mostly taken from American trade catalogues, the volume is arranged by tool name in alphabetical order, as well as listing some tools by the profession of their users, with a separate index. Cross-referenced. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
