The Woodworker Series by William Fairham, edited by J. C. S. Brough, Evans Bros., Publishers, London
Early in the 20th Century, Evans Bros., London, England, engaged William Fairham to author and edit The Woodworker Series, books derived from The Woodworker journal. A practical woodworker trained in the late 19th Century skills of carpentry and woodworking, William Fairham later taught these skills to students in technical schools.
After William Fairham passed, Evans Bros. brought in Charles Hayward to edit The Woodworker Series to suit more modern interests. The traditional craftsperson of today will find the Fairham editions of The Woodworker Series to be valuable for their adherence and accuracy to late 19th Century carpentry and woodworking techniques.
