Overview

This vintage book contains a complete manual of forging iron and steel, with a detailed introduction of the history of forging, information on the manufacturing of iron and steel, and instructions for all aspects of forging. Original written simply enough for the high school boy but and at the same time thoroughly and systematically enough for the veteran smith, "Forging of Iron and Steel" is recommended for anyone with an interest in forging. Contents include: "Introduction. - Forging, Drawing out, Upsetting, Shaping, Bending, Punching, Welding, Hardening, Annealing, Brazing", "Historic Use of Iron and Steel. - Early Period (Egyptian, Grecian, Roman), Architectural and Domestic Uses, Romanesque Period, Gothic Period, German Work, Baroque Period, Rococo Period, Deterioration of Art Iron Work", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on blacksmithing. First published in 1915.
