I hope this is allowable here?
By the end of October, the Early American Industries Association will publish the collected articles of Walter Jacobs, one the top authorities on Stanley tools. At 244 pages, that’s a lot of tools. Walter covers type studies, descriptions, patents, histories, you name it of planes, rules, gardening tools and everything in between.
I’m not the publisher, just the technical advice guy for the project.
It will be 8.5×11, trade paperback, color cover, black & white interior, 244 pages, fully illustrated, $20 and discounted for EAIA members. Available at the end of October at the Browns’ Auction and then through the EAIA website and then through Amazon and most booksellers.
All I can show you know is the title page as a sneak peak here:
I can’t show you a sneak of the contents yet, but it’s really good. Every article has been reformatted for the book, images improved or replaced, text corrected, etc.
