Hand-Saw Makers of North America is jam packed with information about every known hand saw maker who made saws in North America. The book opens with a short history of the hand saw industry in North America documenting the earliest makers in the US and Canada. Following is the heart of the book with a table which lists each handsaw maker known, location of operation and dates of operation. For major makers, important saw model numbers are listed as well. The data is organized in two formats, alphabetically and by state for easy reference. One of the unique aspects of Vintage Saws is that often times another company made a saw for a hardware store that redistributed them under their own name. Erv lists all the know Hardware Suppliers and Dealers with location and date information, as well as the brand that they sold with model numbers. The book closes out with a detailed history of the Disston, Atkins, Simonds, George Bishop and Welch and Griffiths firms. In each case, Erv presents the history of the company and lists the individual model numbers with the dates of manufacture for each. Sprinkled throughout are ads and artwork from each company which adds to the appeal of the book and gives a sense of the marketing environment at the time. Finally, the end of the book is devoted to ads and broadsides mostly from the 19th and early 20th century. The book concludes with an exhaustive bibliography for further reading and research.
