"The rapid sale of Four Editions of this work has induced the Editor to offer to the public a Fifth which, from the many important additions made, he trusts will now form a complete pocket companion for the Cabinet Maker, as well as a necessary and useful addition to his tool-chest : and though the price is somewhat enhanced, from the plates and extra matter contained in it, still that will not be found, on a comparison with the former work, to be such as will put it out of the workman's power to avail himself of the benefits a book of general reference like the present is calculated to afford.
