It's an in depth, well illustrated guide to layout of work with a steel square. Includes Volume I of a two book set, printed by The Radford Architectural Co., copyright in 1907 by William A. Radford. The books measures 6" x 8.6" x over 264 pages + index in the front, and about 50 pictures of house, and house plan layout advertising blueprints you could buy for $5 at the time (1907).

It's in good condition with minimal wear, no spine cracks no writing, good clean pages. Some page edge foxing when the book is closed, not seen on inside pages. We note an past owner's name written on the inside blank page. Some of the information covered includes: Polygons and mitrers. lists of angles for octagons & rakes. Hip rafters, brace, hip, and rafter cuttings. Bevels for hips, valleys and purlins. Angles and cuttings for trusses. Layout of ellipses, ovals, circles, with a square and different ways of measuring with the square, and many other issures involved with roof framing or construction. Other topics on stair building and exterior construction mostly are included in this book like dormers, windows and door sills etc. An excellent reference book for the home restorer!
