This early work on wood carving is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains details of the tools, materials and techniques involved in different styles of wood carving. This is a fascinating work and highly recommended for anyone interested in the art of the decorative woodwork. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
