Full Description


With the assistance of various international organizations and the use of modern catalogues from The Netherlands, Britain, France, Spain, Italy and Germany, the compiler has created a selective yet comprehensive reference work covering the closely linked and wide-ranging fields of tools and ironware. The terms included are drawn from the technical language rather than from scientific nomenclature, and are given in English/American with equivalents in the other five languages. A separate index in each of these languages is provided, keyed to the basic table, and the areas in which each tool or appliance is used, or the functional category to which it belongs, is also shown. The technical areas and functional categories covered in this work include: agriculture, artist's tools, brewery, carpentry, cooperage, dredging, engineering, fire brigades, gold and silversmithing, joinery, leather working, masonry, measuring, navigation, office equipment, printing, railways, screwdrivers, shearing, surveying, textiles, watchmaking and welding.
