BY FRED T. HODGSON

This book deals with the stone mason's work altogether. Methods of building walls in rustic rubble, ashler square, uncovered, random coursed, irregular corners, snecked and square rubble, picked polygonal ragwork, and other styles of work are explained and illustrated. Finished stones such as window sills, window heads, coping, arch stones, key stones, and other dressings are described and illustrated. Stone arches and joists are described and illustrated, with ample instructions for working them. The book contains 180 illustrations and diagrams, and is a complete cyclopedia of practical instructions in masonry, and must prove of inestimable value to the operative mason.
