[Carpentry]. (Peterson, Charles E., editor).

Building Early America: Contributions toward the History of a Great Industry.

Chilton Book Co Radnor, PA 1976 Octavo, pp. 407, indexed, color frontis, profusely illustrated with drawings, photographs, and diagrams. Proceedings of the Symposium held at Philadelphia to celebrate the 250th Birthday of the Carpenters' Company of the City and County of Philadelphia. Texts by 22 contributors.
Great resource. A very impressive publication, extremely well documented and illustrated. A case in point: Diana Waite's chapter on "Roofing for Early America" covers thatch, ceramic tile, wood shingles, slate, tinplate, zinc, galvanized iron, and composition roofing, all in scholarly yet readable style, beautifully illustrated and painstakingly referenced. A wonderful study for historians of the building trades and architecture.
