As Dr. Daniel Preston comments in his preface to this reprint, RThere is not now, nor has there ever been, such a complete compendium of arcane, irreplaceable, and wonderful leatherania in the English language.S Covered here are tools of the Bookbinder, Boat and Shoe Maker, Clog Maker, Driving Belt Maker, Furrier, Glove Maker, Handbag & Purse Maker, Harness Maker and Saddler, Hat Maker, Loriner; and, among the miscellaneous trades, the Ball Maker, Coach Trimmer, Felt Maker, Hydraulic Pump-Leather Maker, Last and Boot Tree Maker, Parchment and Vellum Maker, Taxidermist, Whip Maker, and more besides. There are chapters on leather manufacture (TannerUs tools and CurrierUs tools) and on tools for the decoration of leather. Mr. Salaman's earlier book, Dictionary of Tools Used in the Woodworking and Allied Trades c. 1700-1970, emerged as a classic in its field and was hailed by reviewers in America and in Britain.
