This important publication describes a unique set of over 200 tools from the late eighteenth century, giving an extraordinary insight into the trade practices of the time. The tools were bought by Joseph Seaton for his son Benjamin but were hardly used - instead they survive intact, with an original inventory recording the prices paid at Christopher Gabriel's London toolshop, and can be seen in the Guildhall Museum, Rochester, Kent.

This second edition is much bigger and more detailed than the very popular first edition. It has more photographs (many in colour) and revised text from expert tool historians.

Also included are measured drawings of many of the tools and of the chest itself.
