The Mechanic's Companion, by Peter Nicholson, describes in detail the skilled building trades of the 19th Century: Carpentry; Joinery; Bricklaying; Masonry; Slating; Plastering; Painting; Smithing & Turning. This, the 1850 edition, was the first to include a final chapter on the Steam Engine.

In print for more than half a century, The Mechanic's Companion was a primary reference for the amateur, the student and the practical mechanic. Published first in 1812 as Mechanical Exercises, then in 1831 as The Mechanic's Companion, this famous book was Nicholson's homage and update to Mechanick Exercises: Or, The Doctrine Of Handy-Works by Joseph Moxon. The 1703 edition of Moxon is available from Toolemera Press.
