Benjamin made a fine tool chest for his new tools and recorder their cost in an inventory which survives with the chest. ... The 2nd edition, written by both TATHS members and the staff of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in Virginia, includes a considerable amount of new information about the tools and the chest and also a description of the making of a replica chest for Colonial Williamsburg."--Back cover.… (mais)

A joint project of the Tools and Trades History Society and the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation ( )
  ME_Dictionary | Mar 20, 2020 |
This book is a monograph published by the Tool and Trases Historic Society in England. It's now out of print and rather hard to find. My copy came from eBay as some 100 copies popped up somewhere and an enterprising individual autioned them off.

So, as a monograph, it's really an indepth study of the tool chest with some contextual information of the Seaton family and the life and times in Chatham England at the turn of the 19th Century.

Included are photographs of *most* of the tools (in B&W with a few in color), several line drawings showing the constuction details of the chest and facimilies of two inventories in Bejamin's own hand (good luck reading them).

I would say that to an old tool afficianado or a student of 18th Century woodworking, this is an excellent course. As far as we know, this is a unique collection of tools and their original container with a solid line of providence all the way back to it's origin. ( )
