Originally published in 1904, this early work on Brickwork and Masonry is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. This is a fascinating read and contains much information that is still useful and practical today. With chapters on Foundations, Vaulting, Arches and many more as well as illustrations this work is thoroughly recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of all Masioners. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
