Bricklaying : Skill and Practice
picture
Features:-
"THERE ARE TWO WAYS of training brick masons. One method of instruction requires a personal demonstration of the craft to the pupil. The second method introduces a clearly written text, together with an abundant use of illustrations, to show trainees the on-the-job procedures of a skilled craftsman. Bricklaying Skill and Practice uses the second of these two excellent methods because its authors fully realize that it is impossible to guide each hand in order to teach the manipulative skill of laying bricks. They are convinced, however, that the effective use of illustrations and the clear text material found in Bricklaying Skill and Practice can be used not only by the beginner, but also by the more advanced mason as well...."
