reprint of Volumes 1 and 2 of the 1892 edition of Practical Carriage
Building is perhaps the most complete and accurate contemporary
work on the subject.
It covers in
great depth, and with many illustrations, the materials and tools
used, the making and repairing of wheels, the making of carriage
parts and their assembly, framing and construction, axles, yokes,
whiffletrees, patterns and layouts, and many other useful and fascinating
All sorts of carriages
are discussed: buggies, cabriolets and broughams, phaëtons, rockaways,
as well as sleighs and sleds, and express, delivery, and farm wagons.
A definitive, easy to follow reference on this early trade that is
now enjoying a well-deserved renaissance.
