Excerpt from Building Timbers and Architects Specifications, Incorporated With Which Is Part of Haworth's Practical Timber Measurer
This book differs from the many excellent existing works upon Timber now available, inasmuch as it confines its notice to those woods which have been, are, or promise to be, of special interest to the architect, contractor, builder, timber merchant, and student.
It deals with the commercial side of the subject, and keeps in View the particular requirements of the architectural profession and the building and timber industries.
It also deals brieﬂy with woods which, though not in regular use for building, are of sufficient general interest to warrant passing notice, and it supplies an extensive list of Canadian and Australian woods often used in the Colonies, which may come into use in this country.
Our thanks are due to a number of eminent timber firms who have been consulted concerning certain woods they especially handle.
