Ever wanted to start your own home-based business? Here is the answer for that. Mind you, it would be a real pain if you`re living in a second or third floor walk-up. This book is about painting commercial wagons and carriages. Mind you, there`s not much demand, these days, but who knows the future?

The boards are brick-red cloth with gold print and black design on the spine and front. The corners, edges as well as top and bottom of the spine are quite bumped and worn, soiled and stained. The binding is weak with numerous breaks in the gutter between the pages. The hinges are still together but shaken. The page edges are browned and foxed and have some stains, but otherwise surprisingly clean and unmarked. It is actually a fascinating book revealing the way things were done in a much simpler time. It even gives the formulae for blending your own paints using a lead base. It is 177 pages, 6 3/4 inches wide by 7 3/4 inches tall.

The book was written by Fritz Schriber in 1903 and published by M.T. Richardson, New York.
