A comprehensive, copiously illustrated, and uncensored dictionary of logging terms and technology. The lexicon used by loggers or lumberjacks is a language all its own with dialects created by a handful of factors - national origin of the speakers, working conditions, era, changing technology, and regional variations. Illustrated with nearly 500 photographs, vintage equipment catalog cuts, textbook illustrations, and rigging diagrams. A bit of faint smudging to front paste-down endpaper, near fine in very good rubbed dust wrapper and protective mylar.
