Description

Excerpt from The Saw in History: A Comprehensive Description of the Development of This Most Useful of Tools From the Earliest Times Down to the Present Day

While the history of the modern saw is more or less a history of the development of the business of Henry Disston Sons, yet to obtain a record, at once comprehensive and ao curate, Of this most useful of implements, extensive investiga tions into its origin and early development were instituted. Museums, private collections and musty old records everywhere were delved into for information, and the result constitutes the only complete history of the saw ever compiled in one volume.

However, as with all pioneer undertakings of like magni tude, with no guide to follow save the pattern devised from its own discoveries, it is entirely likely that this work is not without defect. Such slight omissions as may be brought to light by its wide circulation will, it is hoped, be passed in tolerance in view of the difficulties attending its compilation.
