Originally published in 1898, this early work contains a mass of varied and well digested information on the subject, and its value is further enhanced by a large number of finely executed illustrations. It contains much information that is still useful and practical today. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
