About This Book

"Stereotomy" is a comprehensive handbook on stereotomy, the art or technique of cutting stone, with chapters on quarrying, cutting, finishing, tools and equipment, masonry, and much more. Written in simple, plain language and profusely illustrated, this volume will be of considerable utility to modern readers with a practical interest in stone-cutting. Contents include: "Description of Building Stones", "Description of Trap, Granite, Limestone, Marble, Sandstone. Local Names. Artificial Stone", "Quarrying", "Method of Quarrying: by Hand-tools; by Explosives—The Drills.", "Stone-cutting Tools", "Eighteen Hand-tools Illustrated and Described. Machine Tools.", "Methods of Finishing the Surfaces", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete the original text and artwork. "Stereotomy" was first published in 1902.
