- Blacksmith's Cookbook, The: Recipes in Iron Whitaker, Francis$40.00
NEW reprint with index!
This book is the result of ten years of workshops, demonstrations and master classes. The idea of the title for 'The Blacksmith's Cookbook' was to give credit to blacksmith's wives, especially my own. There is a similarity between forges and kitchens, basic equiptment, basic tools and the often exquisite results. A large part of my success is due to the devoted help of my wife, and I am sure this applies to many other smiths. F.W.

- Blacksmith, The$7.00
The Artisan within the Early Community
The blacksmith was a man of many talents and took his place as an important member of the early farm community. Virtually every article for the home or farm that could not be formed of wood was made by him. His shop served as a natural gathering place for the men of his village and as a center for the exchange of information on crops, gossip and national news.
Henry and George Landis of Landis Valley Pennsylvania, were brothers of exceptional curiosity. As small, rural children, they were curious about the way people lived and worked during the founding days of this nation. Before their formal schooling was accomplished, they had already begun to collect American antiques that were to become the nucleus of the Landis Valley Museum. They were often seen with their horse-drawn wagon coming home from country sales loaded with "another pile of junk."
It is to them that this booklet is dedicated.

- Blacksmith’s Craft, The$22.00
The Blacksmith's Craft: An Introduction to Smithing for Apprentices and Craftsmen was published because there was no text book, at that time, on blacksmithing which could meet the needs of craftsmen and apprentices. The lack of such a book was a handicap to the teaching of this subject. It is also of great value to many other craftsmen and apprentices whose work depends on a sound knowledge of the behavior of iron and steel. The skill of the smith is faithfully recorded in sequences of still photographs and brief descriptions. Some of the methods shown and described are not the only ones possible. As experience is gained, the smith can develop his own variations of a technique. With its clear photographs and accurate descriptions, The Blacksmith's Craft is a valuable resource for all blacksmiths.
