This unusual early work presents a collection of toys with a variety of typical mechanical movements and worth-while construction problems. Instructions are extensively illustrated with diagrams. Contents Include: Tools and Supplies; Transferring Drawings; Sawing; Fastening Parts Together; Joints, Coloring and Finishing; Standing, Rocking, and Wheeling Animals; Jacks and Acrobats - Performers on Strings; Combat and Competition Toys; Walkers and Dancers on an Inclined Plane; and Carts and Chariots. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
