The Author has attempted, as the title suggests, to surmount this difficulty with the use of excellent photographs showing in sequence the steps leading up to the finished piece of work. The book is intended to help boys starting on individual work, and thus it is presumed that the readers have a slight background knowledge of woodwork. One of the principal aims is to encourage the boys to work without constant reference to the teacher, or in the case of adult beginners who are unable to seek advice from a teacher, to supplement their some times scanty knowledge, and enable them to produce a more craftsman like job. The methods of instruction have already been proved highly satisfactory with boys of the age of thirteen and upwards, and with adults who do Woodwork as a hobby." Almost fine copy.     Price: $70.00
