Table of Contents

The David Russell collection brings together a stunning array of edge and boring tools from Britain, continental Europe and North America and provides a broad survey of hand tool-making from prehistory to today. All the tools are illustrated with James Austin's photographs, and details and marks are shown where appropriate. Special attention is given to planes, and the great British makers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries are discussed in depth.

Since prehistoric times there has been a neverending quest for better ways to cut and bore wood. Along the way this has produced a wide variety of hand tools, and there are many where beauty and function meet.

The book will appeal to a wide range of readers, including collectors, industrial archaeologists and social historians.

"The excellent photographs and descriptions do more than justice to one of the most outstanding collections I have ever seen."
- The late Roy Arnold
