This book furnishes architects with authoritative information to enable them to easily and correctly determine and as a result properly specify the various grades of white pine lumber desired for use in house construction. While white pine was frequently regraded in the different markets to conform to various local grading rules before being sold to the ultimate consumer, it was always purchased by retail lumber dealers from the manufacturers under one of three sets of white pine grading rules, and those three sets are covered in this manual. Scarce! We've never had a copy of this title before.
