  • Description

A Voyage through the Labyrinth of Steel and Toolmaking Strategies and Techniques 2000 BC to 1950
(Volume 11)

Defines hundreds of items of interest to blacksmiths, historians, and anyone seeking knowledge of steel- and toolmaking and its history. Topics range from ancient metallurgical techniques to later developments in iron and steel production in America and modern machines and the biomass-derived consumer products and toxic waste that they produce. While it stands alone as an important resource, the Glossary is also an invaluable component of the Davistown Museum Tools in History series, which surveys the history of steel and toolmaking and relates it to New England shipsmiths and edge toolmakers.
