Modern Practical Masonry, Hardback Book


This work provides a clear and simple guide to the subject, based on meticulous and beautiful drawings. Organized in three sections, it includes chapters on construction details; methods of working particular structural shapes; both basic and advanced geometry and setting-out.

It also includes forms and tables omitted from later editions to be used as templates for costing and estimating work.

These are as relevant today as they were in the 1920s.

It includes a new introduction by Christopher Weeks.
