Product Information

Generally the present day tannery is a factory provided with expensive machines, operated by skilled help under direction of someone with considerable knowledge of chemistry. Still the fact remains that good useful leather can be profitably made by hand under some conditions. Originally published in the 1920s, this book contains information on how to tan and make leather at home from cattle, horse, calf, sheep, goat, deer and other hides and skins. It also explains how to skin, handle, classify and market.
