Description


Edward Preston & Sons was the most prolific manufacturer of iron spokeshaves in the United Kingdom from approximately 1880 until 1932. This book catalogues the iron spokeshaves and related tools manufactured by Preston. Since original Preston catalogues are not readily available, many Preston tools have been misidentified and many incorrect assumptions about the age of tools have been made. Rare Preston catalogues, price lists, and patents were used to correctly identify Preston spokeshaves and provide an accurate history. Type studies are provided where the design of a particular spokeshave changed over the years that it was manufactured.
