Woodwork Joints: The Model Library, No.12
How To Make And Where To Use Them. Full instructions for making Mortise and Tenon, Lap, Dovetail, Scarfing and Glue Joints, with a Chapter on Circular Woodwork. by A Practical Joiner. Price. 25 cts. 1917

A primer of sorts for the carpenter and joiner. The majority of the joints illustrated are intended for use in the construction of buildings using post and beam or early balloon frame details. Printed on fairly thin newsprint with a bit too much ink, the illustrations and text have a tendency to bleed through when least expected.

Still and all, a nice review of woodwork joints both common, uncommon and peculiar. The section of dovetail joints is interesting, as are the note on draw-boring mortise and teneon joints.

For some reason, the author declined to give his/her name, instead opting for the mid-nineteenth century form of authorship as "A Practical Joiner".
