Synopsis: In this marvelous book, Salaman describes and illustrates every tool used in the leather-working trades in Great Britain from about 1700 until the present time, and explains its purposeQall told, he covers over 1,100 different tools. 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. The Dictionary of Leather-Working Tools is no less distinguished. With its great wealth of information and impeccable scholarship, it is invaluable to leatherworkers, tool collectors, and industrial researchers alike. 400 pages. 7" x 10". Completely illustrated. Soft cover.
