About This Item

This is a first edition, first printing, of Progressive Lessons in Machine Shop Practice, Book I. It was produced as a textbook by Harry A Jones, Machine Shop Instructor at Vancouver Technical School, and the title page states that it was authorized for use in the schools of British Columbia. However, it quickly became an international best-seller and was used in schools throughout the world--this copy was purchased in the UK.


See table of contents photo: everything covered is illustrated.



This copy is in superb condition.

172 pages, only slightly yellowed with age. The paper is fine and smooth.
The fading you see in the photos only appears in photos.

There are a couple of fingerprints. Two students signed the book, one at the front, one at the back.

Other than that, it is perfect. And all still relevant to woodworkers and cabinetmakers.
