ISBN: 9780953863082. Reprint. Book Condition – Good. This book explores how people have managed and exploited oakwoods since Neolithic times, and the skills required in the use of timbers for ship-building, furniture and constructing houses. The appendix contains a list of historic and named oak trees in Britain compiled from 18th and 19th century sources and drawing on the work of N D G James. With 10 colour illustrations and 52 b/w illustrations, this is a cultural history of both the tree and of timber, disappearing forestry and the carpentry skills of our ancestors. Front cover has some bumps and creases but interior is like new.
