Marcus Hopfinger Posted June 24, 2010 Share Posted June 24, 2010 I found a bunch of blacksmithing related ebooks on Google Books and I thought I would share the links. Although I have them downloaded as PDF files I dont' think I can post the actual files themselves but I see no reason I can't share the links. If you follow the link you will see a "PDF" or "Download" link in the top right corner of the Google Books window. Just click the link to download the book to your computer for reading at your leisure. All of these are from 1888 to 1921 with most being right after the turn of the century. A few have sections where the book didn't scan cleanly but those are few and far between. Practical Blacksmithing by Milton T. RichardsonVolume 1 (1888), I downloaded Volume 2 some time ago but can't find it on Google Books today, Volume 3 (1900), Volume 4The Blacksmith's Guide by J.F. Sallows (1907), Forge Work by William L. Ilgen (1912),Forge Practice by John Lord Bacon (1906),Farm Blacksmithing by J.M. Drew (1901),Farm Blacksmithing by John F. Friese (1921),Farm Shop Work by George M. Brace and D.D. Mayne (1915 - blacksmithing section begins on page 214 of the PDF),Shop and Foundry Practice by the International Correspondence Schools (1901 - blacksmithing section begins on page 217 of the PDF), American Blacksmith and Motor Shop--There may be more of these out there but these are the ones I have found so farVolume 17 (1917), Volume 20 (1920), Volumes 21-22 (1922) The Blacksmith's Journal--There may be more of these out there as well....Volume 5 (1904), Volume 11 (1910) There is more out there. Just but the word blacksmith in the Google Books search field and start poking around....easy to loose track of time doing that. Enjoy.
