England has a magnificent heritage of timber-framed buildings, the oldest dating from the thirteenth century. Highly prized today, an increasing number have been lovingly restored to their original condition.

All of these are detailed and profusely illustrated with the author's own delightful pen-and-ink drawings. He also shows how these intricate structures were assembled and identifies the regional characteristics and architectural features which represent an integral part of the history and charm of these fine old buildings. 368 crisp white pp & close to a kilo for post.

4 Duncan, Roger F Dorothy Elizabeth : Building a Traditional Wooden Schooner
NY W. W. Norton & Company 200 Hardcover Excellent Good 22cm 
From the dust jacket: "This is the story of Dorothy Elizabeth, a 28-foot schooner. Particularly, it is the story of why to build a traditional wooden sailing vessel that relies on age-old methods and materials, yet also embraces newfangled technologies. But mostly it is the story of the people--the score of craftsmen and craftswomen, friends, and family--who give their skill, advice, support, and time to turn Dorothy Elizabeth from an idea into a graceful, seaworthy reality. You will meet Ralph Stanley of Southwest Harbor, Maine, one of the world's great designers and builders of traditional wooden boats, and a disarmingly plainspoken master craftsmen in the maritime Maine tradition. You will meet Mary Chandler Duncan, a poet and the author's wife, soul mate, and first mate. You will meet Nat Wilson, sail maker, who took time out from building topsails for the USS Constitution to build sails for Dorothy Elizabeth. You will meet Frank Luke, neighbor, boatyard owner, all-around helper, and the man who launched Dorothy Elizabeth. And you will meet many other singular people up and down the coast from Portland, Maine, to Lunnenberg, Nova Scotia and beyond, drawn together by the building of a boat. 240 pages, slight mark on dj
