I am sure many folk will enjoy this 1945 book called Woodsmanship by Bernard S. Mason
It is 65 years out of date which puts it back in the time when folk used axes and cross cut saws. It is written from an American perspective and has some flaws but I still like it. Lovely line drawings showing good practice for using the axe, manhandling timber, building woodpiles etc.
