Throughout his life three interests were all-absorbing to Edward Pinto: history, wood and craftsmanship, especially craftsmanship in wood. This great book is a compound of all three. It is a major product of the author’s life’s work, embodying a great part of his exceptional, perhaps unique, knowledge. It illustrates most aspects of the woodworker’s craft from the Middle Ages almost to the present day and, at the same time, social life and customs throughout that period from the humble activities of kitchen, school and
nursery to the techniques of trades and professions and the changing fashion scene. The book has been designed for easy reference under 28 main headings, each beginning with an historical introduction and then describing the objects so far as possible in alphabetical order. Some 3300 objects are illustrated in the photographs most of which were specially taken for the book. To make the book as comprehensive as possible some subjects made partly of metal are included.

Though, naturally, objects from the British Isles predominate, there are a great number from Continental Europe and also some of European origin made in, or exported from, Europe to the U.S.A., Canada, Australia, South Africa and other countries where culture derives from Europe. The objects range in size from a carved peachstone to a wooden fire-engine, in subject from lace bobbins to a ship’s figurehead, in quality from a simple trencher to the Carolean lignum vitae and ivory wassail bowl suite in the collection of Lord Cullen of Ashbourne.
