Publisher Comments:


Hailed as the definitive resource and standard reference book for blacksmiths, anvil collectors, and anyone interested in historical tools, Richard Postman's Anvils in America is the culmination of 15 years of meticulous research. In 1982, while preparing his teaching materials for a new Industrial Education class on hot metals and hand forging at Andrews University, Michigan, Mr. Postman discovered that there was little or no published materials the subject of anvils. Finding it difficult to believe that no one had previously chronicled an implement so historically important and integral to the Iron Age became the impetus behind the creation of Anvils of America.

Mr. Postman's thorough research has corrected much of the misinformation previously found in the limited published resources available.

More than a reference book, Anvils in America is a delightful chronicle of manufacturers, tools and people integral to the development of our country.

This book is great, it is not just about anvils but about our history. This book is just hard to lay down, the more you read it the more you want to read it. It is worth every penny, only wish that I had found out about it sooner.
