In the List of Colonial Trades, the outline of trade crafts during the early period of American history is derived from many sources. Early county plat book always listed the local trades in the quaint little grid maps of towns and villages…What is amazing about those maps is how many craft shops there were in every little community. The Leather Workers and Allied Trades were always strongly represented…Dressers, Tanners, Harness Makers, Hatters, Coat Makers, Cordwainers or Shoe Makers, Cobblers that would fix almost anything above, Saddlers…One book collects and identifies the array of tools used by all of these Journeymen…

My list of the Colonial Trades is here:

Probably missed a few of them, but this is a living list & will occasionally add a title.

Out of all of the early trades, the hand tools of the Leather Worker and allied trades were made in the most amazing and elegant array of form and function design…To look at the tools and identify them, then practice their use requires a guide like Salaman’s work…then lots of practice…

An essential title for the ‘Leather Worker and Allied Trades Person’ or collector…This exceptional title deserves more than five stars. ( )
