In Hardcover!!!!

A Museum of Early American Tools is a deeply influential book about tools and trades that has gone in and out of print. We’re delighted to stock it in a sturdy hardcover edition. Pen-and-ink sketches by the dozen and an illuminating text make the book a delight for anyone who enjoys Americana.

Fresh, informal, direct, and expressive, Museum covers early tools - building tools and methods; farm and kitchen implements; and the tools of curriers, farriers, wheelwrights, coopers, blacksmiths, coachmakers, sawyers, loggers, tanners, and many of the other proud and individualistic craftsmen of the pre-industrial age. The book’s scope is wide and its illustrations are profuse and comprehensive. It is the best generalist publication of early American tools -- and is a "must have" addition to the library of anyone just getting interested in tools or looking for a general reference on colonial tools and how they were used.

This classic book has played an outsized role in inspiring passionate interest in tools since its publication - read it and understand why.

Hardcover. 108 pages. 8 1/2"x 11".

I have owned a copy since I was about twelve and this is the book that launched my interest in tools, history and cabinetmaking. Joel, Founder - Tools for Working Wood.
