- Axe and Man, The Heavin, Charles$20.00
Excellent book covering a vast range of axes starting with the early stone hand axes of the paleolithic period. It began as a history of the evolution of the axe. Since the history of the axe is difficult to separate from the history of man, this study has become the history of early man's stone and metal technology as exemplified by his axe. Technology is not only an important part of every culture, but it also usually affects such other aspect as the economic, political, social and religious. The degree of advancement of man's technology is not only reflected directly in his tools and weapons themselves, but also in his means of agriculture, kinds of transportation, the sophistication of his buildings and the degree of his artistic development. These in turn can be directly affected by the degree of his tool development, which in many cases means his axe.

- 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.
