It does not seek to take the place of a popular manual, but aims to answer his first questions, to suggest to him the matters he ought to ponder and settle for himself, and the others on which he will need expert advice. Its principal claim to originality lies in its effort to help him to a definite intelligent choice of possibilities.The one point where the homebuilder calls for aid is the point where he must decide between several courses, all of which invite. Any amount of building lore is spread before him- half of it full of detailed application to modern problems, but frankly in the service of specific manufactured articles- half of it authoritative, colorless, carefully impartial - too impartial to be of use. Comparisons are odious- yet practical building is impossible without comparing, sifting and rejecting.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
