Book Details

SIDDONS (G. A.). The Cabinet-Maker's Guide; or, rules and instructions in the art of varnishing, dying, staining, japanning, polishing, lackering, and beautifying wood, ivory, tortoiseshell & metal: with observations on their management and application. Including an appendix, containing several valuable tables.1830

London: Printed for Sherwood, Gilbert, and Piper, Fifth edition, considerably augmented by the addition of several new articles, receipts, &c., 12mo, xvi, 233, [1] + 12pp., of adverts, engraved frontispiece of the cabinet maker's workshop (lightly waterstained to lower margin), 4 engraved geometrical plates, cont. cloth-backed boards, slight tear, orig. printed title label to spine. "The rapid sale of Four Editions of this work has induced the Editor to offer to the public a Fifth which, from the many important additions made, he trusts will now form a complete pocket companion for the Cabinet Maker, as well as a necessary and useful addition to his tool- chest: and though the price is somewhat enhanced, from the plates and extra matter contained in it, still that will not be found, on a comparison with the former work, to be such as will put it out of the workman's power to avail himself of the benefits a book of general reference like the present is calculated to afford."—Advertisement.
