Why We Love This

The American Boy's Handy Book by D. C Beard. NY: Charles E. Tuttle, 1966. First printing. Based on a best-selling compendium from the 1880s, this marvelous collection tells hyper-active boys 'what to do and how to do it'. From homemade kites and fishing tackle to sleds, fires, aquariums, puppets or hot-air balloons, this wonderful guide creates a markedly old-fashioned alternative to the internet! 391 pp. with hundreds of illustrations.
