The Taunton Press

This collection features more than 250 unique tools built with beautiful materials, lavished with artistic decoration, and crafted with remarkable precision

Privately owned, many of these tools have never been photographed or shown in publications before

Included are measuring instruments, handplanes, saws and other cutting tools, striking and drilling tools, Asian treasures, miniatures, ingenious foot-powered machines from the 19th century, and improbable combination tools

Each photo is accompanied by detailed notes that provide historical and technical background

This handsome volume will appeal to collectors, those who use tools, and anyone who appreciates finely crafted utilitarian objects
