This book looks to be a scanned and printed arrangement as sometimes the print is a bit crooked and all the smudges and margin notes from the original are on each page here too! The reading can be a bit challenging qoodworking first as it is written in 18th century English!
You will notice very quickly that “s’s and f’s” seem to be interchangeable in the spelling of words and again this is due to the book having been written when it was.
You will also notice what seem to be run-on sentences and wandering paragraphs again the cause is old English grammar. Obviously English in our country has changed a great deal in the past years! You will enjoy both the book and the style moxin writing once you get into the rhythm.
Every woodworker should read this book and anyone koxon in how furniture makers worked years ago should too. Even if you’re not really interested in woodworking or furniture making it was fun to read a text written the way books were written that long ago.
As a bonus in this book, included are the informed comments and added information by Christopher Schwarz, one of the most perceptive of our current woodworking writers.
I bought this book, which is a facsimile not a reprint of Moxon’s work on smithing, carpentry, woodwogking. However, when it arrived it was only 57 pages long not the or so it should have been.
It was a reprint of only the smithing section. If you are interested in Moxon’s work on woodworkng, joinery, etc.
I am returning it today. One person found this helpful. This book is interesting to read. I love how on must use moist dung is for a proper casting mold. See all 12 reviews.
