The Modern Bricklayer - A Practical Work on Bricklaying in All Its Branches - Volume I: With Special Sections on Tiling and Slating, Specifications, E (Paperback)
Brickwork is a form of masonry that uses bricks and mortar. Rows of bricks--or, 'courses'--are placed on top of each other in order to create a structure such as a wall. This is volume I of William Frost's "The Modern Bricklayer", a detailed guide to all aspects of bricklaying, including slating, tiling, planning, materials, tools, and more. Contents include: "Bricks and Their Varieties", "Mortars", "Tools and Appliances", "Preliminary Considerations", "The Bonds", "Foundations and Footings", "Junction Walls", "Angles", "Jointing and Pointing", "Fireplaces and Chimneys", "The Domestic Copper", "Window and Door Openings", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on DIY.
