WIthout doubt one of the greatest publications to ever see a press. Moxon did the world a great service when he took it upon himself to detail these "handy-works". Hours of careful reading will give you a headache, but the insight it provides into the minds of our ancestors is well worth the trouble. We should all strive to contribute so much to our descendants.
