Artist, philosopher and historian Eric Sloane is widely credited as the foremost authority on Early American rural architecture and tools.
  • His works, which are filled with his elegant pen-and-ink drawings, are considered vital historical sources on their respective subjects.
  • Originally published in the 1950s and 1960s, many have been out of print for years - and we're pleased to help give them the recognition they deserve.
  • Beautifully and thoughtfully underscores the important role of wood in the development of American life and culture.
  • "From cradle to coffin," Sloane explores the resourcefulness of early pioneers and their use of this precious commodity.
  • Topics include the aesthetics of wood, wooden implements and carpentry.
  • 11" x 8-5/16", 110 pp.

"The Eric Sloane books should come with a disclaimer: PLEASE HAVE ENOUGH SHELF SPACE. Once you buy one Sloane book, you are without doubt going to buy more. I'll admit to being a big enough addict that I've bought used copies just because 'I might wear out my other one'..."
