Our Workshop &The Lathe And How To Use It by Temple Thorold 1866, 1867
"It is our intention to notice many things, however trivial, that may in any way serve to enlighten our readers respecting the joiner's art."
Our Workshop & The Lathe And How To Use It, published 1866 & 1867, respectively, are the only known works of Temple Thorold. Although we do not know who Temple Thorold was, it is likely that he was a British educator in the English Sloyd educational system.
Our Workshop & The Lathe And How To Use It features two of the earliest English language Manual Arts texts written exclusively for British adolescents attending public or private schools.
Written with a directness and clarity seldom found in nineteenth century text books, Our Workshop & The Lathe And How To Use It represents an invaluable period resource for the modern traditional woodworker as well as the educator interested in applying the practices of Slöjd or Manual Arts Education to classwork.
