Every Man His Own Builder

£15.99

Product description

Bound in red cloth boards with illustrated front cover and title in black on the spine.

Minimal wear to ends of spine and corners of boards.

Previous owner's notes in ink on page iv.

Endpapers are pale blue and have advertisements for purveyors of building materials.

The frontispiece is a b/w photograph of Joseph Johnson Miles, the author's grandfather.

Internally clean with numerous b/w diagrams and illustrations. There are also several fold-out plans.

From the preface "In the following pages I have endeavoured to show how any man of normal bodily strength can at need build his own house without the aid of skilled labour. To the ordinary Englishman the idea of building houses without skilled artisans no doubt appears strange, but to our colonists, who in out of the way places and for various reasons are frequently compelled to do so, it will appear far less unusual"
