This unique directory lists hundreds of tool-cutters and their firms who worked from 1780 to 1965. With brief biographies of each craftsman or firm, the author illustrates many of their original trade marks and advertisements. He also lists the dates when they were active. This well-researched and illustrated Directory is divided into three main sections: Toolcutters in the British Isles: Toolcutters in Continental Europe: and Toolcutters in North America and Australia.
