From the Publisher
This is Mr. Thornton's third book on the subject. Mr. Thornton also wrote "Apple Parers," the delightful comprehensive history, identification and price guide to the vast variety of ingenious apple peeling, coring and slicing devices that were a vital part of early America. Both books are a must for any antique kitchenware collector's reference library.
