Astragal Press, Mendham, NJ. Compiled by the Carriage Museum of America. Edited by Don Peloubet, Wheelwright. 240 pages. 9"x 12" profusely illustrated. The last half of the nineteenth century marked a huge transition in carriage building-basically, from individual carriage shops to large, industrialized carriage factories. A major factor in this transition was the concurrent change in the manufacture of wheels, from individual wheelwrighting to industrial wheelmaking. This book is a compilation of articles on wheelmaking taken from late 19th century journals published in America for the carriage industry.
