TEMPORARILY OUT OF PRINT.  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.
