Cloth hardbound with dustjacket, trimmed edges, 5"x 7¾"x 1⅛", 320 pp, 16.1 oz
There are copious amounts of clearly detailed drawings and illustrations.
The book is FREE OF all of the following:
Tears, loose or missing pages, page folds or corner creases, spine breaks, page stains or soil, marks/highlights, writing or notations.
This book is from my father's library and has been kept in a smoke-free environment.
The board corners are all well-pointed with no bending.
The dustjacket has much wear and tears at the edges, nevertheless none of it is missing. There is some 'invisible' tape repair at some of the wearing points on the inside of the jacket.
The book has very mild page age-toning and a mild musty odor.
There is bumping to top and bottom of spine.
There is very mild (nearly indiscernible) wear to the front board's bottom edge—all other edges are like new.
There is owner's name written then crossed out with a black felt-tip marker on both top and bottom page edges. Also a single red dot from a felt-tip marker on the outside edge of page edges. Owner's name crossed out with black felt-tip with newer owner's name written below it on the first (blank) page.
Very Very Good condition. I can provide additional images. (Note: I am NOT an experienced bookseller/appraiser)
If I haven't addressed all of your concerns, please feel free to ask me any questions you may have.
What follows is verbatim, from the book's front matter:
The problem of taking-off a bill of materials required for the construction of a house is a very important one. Skilled carpenters are often required to do this work. This book is written to make it possible for them to learn the rules and methods of estimating so they can make accurate building material lists.
__The constructional order of quantity survey is used. Each item is taken off from the plan in practically the same order as a building is constructed, beginning with foundation materials, then framing lumber, next exterior finish and lastly interior finish.
__When used as a text, each student should also be furnished with a set of residential blueprints and a copy of the check-up measurement sheet on page 5, which is particularly valuable for the beginner. It will then not be difficult to apply the estimating rules for different materials to be listed, reading the plans for all necessary measurements.
__Evening school experience using this material when teaching estimating classes has evidenced much interest by many carpenters int he subject of carpentry estimating. We hope skilled craftsmen will find it of profit and interest and that it will be an incentive for carpentry apprentices to study and progress in their trade.

PREFACE TO THE SIXTH EDITION
The continued popularity of this text indicates it is filling a definite need in the field of carpentry estimating, particularly for the apprentice carpenter training to become a Master Carpenter.
__The material is based on commonly accepted practices of house construction, as detailed in many building ordinances, which are standardized to cover basic building principles.
__It has been found advantageous to add material to make the text even more valuable. This has been done in this new edition by adding Chapter XIV, Fasteners.
__Thanks are again extended to the California State Department of Education for their permission to include in Chapter XII material selected from one of the lessons in the California Third Year Carpentry Course, which was written by one of the authors of this text. We also express our gratification to Delmar Publishers, Albany, New York, for permission to reproduce the illustrations in the Stair Chapter.
__We wish continued success to all students and readers of this book, which from it inception was planned to enable an apprentice to broaden his basic knowledge of the carpentry trade, and to help journeymen carpenters to intelligently understand estimating rules required when ordering house-construction materials.
