Though slim, these attractive, quality printed magazines pack in a lot of information and photographs in 12-48 pages (they start small and increase through the year). This is a full set for 1957, Volume X, Nos. 1-2-3-4. The topics are myriad, but the emphasis is on Early American products and processes. Amongst the features here are the Corning Glass Center, tools of early American glass blowers; making simple tools such as the Indian broom, the rake, and the twibill (now there's a new/old one!); Old Salem; fruit lifters; bookbinding tools; early home coffee roasters; the Old Slater Mill, and a beekeeping exhibit at Shelburn Museum in Vermont.
