This combined reprint of Volumes 1 and 2 of the 1892 edition of Practical Carriage Building is perhaps the most complete and accurate contemporary work on the subject. It covers in great depth, and with many illustrations, the materials and tools used, the making and repairing of wheels, the making of carriage parts and their assembly, framing and construction, axles, yokes, whiffletrees, patterns and layouts, and many other useful and fascinating subjects. All sorts of carriages are discussed: buggies, cabriolets and broughams, phaėtons, rockaways, as well as sleighs and sleds, and express, delivery, and farm wagons. A definitive, easy to follow reference on this early trade that is now enjoying a well-deserved renaissance. 512 pages. Fully illustrated. 51/2" x 81/2". Soft cover.

Thanks to The Astragal Press, we have a classic back in print with a wealth of information, hundreds of nuggets, or pearls of wisdom. An essential purchase for carriage restorers, wheelwrights and historians alike. (Blacksmith's Gazette)
