Yep, there are plenty of public domain books there, some of them about woodworking. There are even more in The Gutenberg Project. It is good to have a reminder of that from time to time, thank you.

Still, I prefer to get a copy, commented and autographed by ”The Chris” for $17.00. :o)

Jojo-you are absolutely right—i just got my copy from the Schwarz and i love the commentary (and the cute smiley face by his signature)! This edition is not from the public domain; it’s from EEBO (Early English Books Online)—it’s prob a 1st or 2nd edition that has been scanned in, so i thought it was pretty exciting (but then again, i am a bit of a nerd…).
PS-i love your blog!

That’s an interesting resource, thank you Naomi.

You are right that this is an interesting (and nerdy!) edition, even if it lacks the smiley… They both complement each other and, although I like to support the folks at Lost Art Press, I also enjoy browsing the alternatives.

Thank you for the compliments, that reminds me that I should kick it off again because I recently went to visit an ancient village entirely made of huge wooden houses and I saw some pretty interesting examples of old tools.

Take care.

Thank you Naomi,

Knowledge, Like Time, is of greatest values, and the more we share them, the further our world spreads.
