    I ran across an OLD Hand me down recently and thought some of you might find some of the info of use.I'll down load more photo's as the thread grow's and maybe someone with more clout will turn it into a sticky.They don't make book's like this anymore so you may want to make copy's and enlarge them for future reference.

    Actually reprints of this are still available. It's currently published under the title of "Musson's Lumber and Log Pocket Book," although I think the title changed quite a bit over time.

    Yeah, the historical aspect of that one is irreplaceable. What's the title of it? I think this book was sold to different timber and lumber companies for them to put their own names on.

    That looks like a great book. Thanks for calling our attention to it. Looks like it's available to read online or download for free:
