WOW....what an awesome magazine / book.
This paper back, magazine style book is 12" x 9"
THE WORLD'S GREATEST BUILDING PAPER
Some of the items you will find in this book:
HOUSE-BOATS and how to build them
Fantastic ads on tools and equipment from 1909. Wouldn't this be great today:
2 x 4 - 8 feet long No. 1 grade pine. price, each piece .08
Peerless brick machine...made 12,000 brick per day.
Now the down fall of this book.
After all the awesome stuff, there are some flaws of this book.
The edges are worn, and have some stains around the edges of pages. Back cover is missing.
WAIT.....EVEN A BETTER DEAL ... found another book, this one is in bad condition. Cover and several of first pages are torn, can not read them. Back cover is on this book, however also torn.
Starting price will be the same as I have in the pass, the above book will be included without any additional charges.
This book is still full of excellent information.
Lots of black and white photos. Also, lots of advertisements for those old tools.
As you can tell by the date of this book, 1909 is only one of the series. These books come with the month on top right corner, this part is missing. Dad had most of these, and we are still digging through stuff from his garage, so will probably have more. so keep watching!
All items come from a smoke free home.
I am not a professional dealer nor claim to be an expert on any of my items. All items will have a once over for cleaning. However, many items will arrive that need some TLC. This should be done by someone with knowledge of the chemicals that are safe to use on each item.
