1983, Finegold and Seitz's classic book
First US edition. Hardback, bound in black cloth with silver titling to spine and upper board (no wrapper as called for). 24 × 18cm, 460pp.
Considered to be one of best books on the market on smithing, including the general principles of metalwork, types and properties of metals, tools, and techniques. Numerous diagrams, photos and illustrations enhance this in-depth, how-to book on silversmithing.
A good, solid copy but pages 59–69 have had a paper-clip to the top edge which has shaped the pages and left a little gap. The book also has a slightly perfumed smell, not unpleasant but it is noticeable.Sold
