When this book was published around 1866, it was intended as a guide
to the most popular trades of the day for prospective apprentices. It
shows the tools of the trade and describes trade practices with illustrations
of tradesmen at work. The current value of the book is its succinct information
on vanished trades. A must for tool collectors.
