KIJOWSKI, GENE (editor). Directory of American Tool Makers, Colonial Times to 1899, n.p.: Early American Industries Association, 1990. Quarto, working draft edition, pp. xviii, 394, 20 (data capture forms), wraps. Preliminary issue of a reference work that was released in 1999, now very scarce. Pulled together by many volunteers, it was distributed among the members of the association so that they would have a working copy to be updated and refined for the eventual first edition release, hence there are forms in the back of the present copy to be sent to the editor with ideas for improvement. This work was intended for tool collectors, museum curators and historians of American tech. Condition of this book: Covers curling, pulling from spine, moderately soiled. Leaves clean and tight.
