Leather in some form has been in use from mankind's earliest days to the present, and although there are many ingenious and valuable imitations and substitutes, the saying "There's nothing like leather" is as true as ever. This book contains a detailed treatise on tanning and leathermaking, written for those who wish to tan and make leather from cattle, horse, calf, sheep, goat, deer, and other hides and skins. A must-have for those with an interest in leatherwork, this antique book makes a great addition to any collection of leatherworking or taxidermic literature. Chapters contained herein include: 'Selection of Hides and Skins'; 'Skinning, Curling and Storing'; 'Equipment and Tools'; 'Materials'; 'Methods and Terms'; 'Soaking and Liming'; 'Unhairing and Deliming'; 'Tanning'; 'Softening and Finishing'; 'Alum process - Lace Leather'; 'Chrome Processes; et cetera.
