"Apple Parers" is the ultimate chronicle of the vast variety of ingenious machines and devices dating back to the colonial days and through the 19th century that were used to pare (peel) apples. This is the most (and only) comprehensive price/value guide ever assembled on apple slicers, corers and parers. There are more than 550 photos, serving up a true slice of American history, along with 75 old, detailed ads from catalogs, most dating back more than 100 years. Also featured are more than 215 patent drawings, along with a complete listing of all parer/corer/slicer patents.
