Any collector who has wished he could carry the Guide to the Makers of American Wooden Planes in his pocket at flea markets, auctions, or estate sales will be happy with this new Field Guide.

The primary difference between this pocket book and the full-sized guide is that all the commentary and historical narrative has been removed from the larger Guide. Tom Elliott has included all the imprints (about 4500) from the fourth edition and has added over 550 new imprints. He has also provided all the star ratings shown before, as well as notations of the names on the planes; whether the name was for a maker or a hardware dealer; and the geographical locations and approximate dates for each entry. Although showcased in a new convenient size, all imprints are shown at their original sizes; nothing has been scaled down except for the size of this high-quality, laminated guide.

Fully illustrated. 4-1/4" x 11". Soft cover.
