This early work on wood treatment is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains information on the methods and materials involved in treating and preserving wooden poles. This is a fascinating work and is thoroughly recommended for anyone interested in the skills of wood preservation. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
