This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1903 Excerpt: ...the bracelet which abuts on this; tie binding-wire round the whole bracelet, and solder the back-plate of the snap to the proper half of the band. File the joint clean and smooth, and release the snap by pressing the point of a file or a knife upon the spring-plate through the slot C.
