Detailed Information for Seller's item number: TB26157
A Reverence for Wood
Author: Sloane, Eric
Publisher: Funk & Wagnalls New York 1965

Third Printing Fine in decorated brown cloth covered boards with black text on the spine with a prior owner's name and address on the first free end page. In a near fine, price clipped dust jacket with very light soiling to the front panel. One of Eric Sloane's most endearing books describing in both written and visual detail how the early settlers utilized the most abundant resource available to them. This is a book about trees and the wood they produce but viewed from the standpoint of 18th century America as wood was the most prevalent source of building material. Although the last ten pages of the book are devoted to text and illustrations to help the uninitiated identify "American Trees" the bulk of the book focuses on the tools and buildings which were made from this abundant resource. The hundreds of black and white (pen and ink) drawings done by Sloane provide a remarkable insight into the use of some tools and products which today can only be described as obscure. Sloane's observations provide a fascinating glimpse at the life and times of pioneering days of the 18th and early 19th centuries. Our code number = TB26157
