London: E. & F.N. Spon, 1904. Fifth edition. Original Cloth. Octavo, pp. 936, indexed, illustrated. Very Good. Item #2444
One of the most interesting trades-related titles we've ever offered. Originally written in 1878-79 this is the expanded 5th edition of 1904. The title is misleading-it is actually a practical study on assessing the amount of materials needed in trades-related building (brickwork, plaster, stone, carpentry) Gives many insights into rtrades-related activities.
