The six sections of this volume were originally a 6-volume tradesman's set from 1929-1935 printed in the UK. Section one focuses on joints, fastenings and fixings; section two concentrates on doors, frames, and panelling; section three focuses on house fitments (dressers, shelves, cupboards, tables, wardrobes, etc.); section four is devoted to church fittings (pews, benches, screens, pulpits, etc.); section five is devoted to design and ornament; and section six is devoted to ship joinery (deck houses, bridge shelter, berths, windows, etc.). The publisher notes that the writers of these sections were top authors in their day and much of the material covered can no longer be found in print anywhere else.
