This book is both a celebration and a tribute to the achievements of nineteenth century designers and manufacturers of domestic cast iron. It is also an explanation of the way that the quality of casting thrills and tempers the feelings which might otherwise mock the artistic ability of the Victorian age. It is a comprehensively illustrated guide for the collectors and also incorporates a necessary background knowledge of cast iron combined with an appreciative and genuine feeling for the need to conserve our heritage. 127pp. Size: 8vo Medium (8" x 5½" approx.) Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
