George Ellis was one of the premier English writers on carpentry and joinery. This, the author's last book, was originally issued in two volumes; the present edition is a reprint of the 1932 one-volume edition. The trade of wooden stairbuilding has enjoyed a rebirth during the last ten years. Unfortunately, most trade schools do not teach this complex craft, and there has been little published in the field for many years. This leaves the craftsman at a loss, both for available information and training. George Ellis has written a very lucid book on the subject. He covers much the same ground as Alexander Mowat in A Treatise on Stairbuilding and Handrailing (page 92), but Ellis is much less technical and more shop oriented. He includes detailed information on taking dimensions and setting out stairs (geometric, spiral, and elliptical), newels, balusters, brackets; constructing soffit linings, single and geometric handrailings, and wreathed handrail to spiral stairs; and he explains the cylinder method of making wreaths.

If you're interested in advancing your skills as a stair builder or someone who desperately needs to understand the fundamentals of stair stringer layout, then the advanced methods inside this book, we'll take you to the next level. Master Stair Builder - Greg Vanden Berge will share some of the extraordinary fundamentals as well as advanced techniques, few carpenters in the world are familiar with. This is a one-of-a-kind book and was written in a simple and easy to understand format. There are plenty of illustrations and even my wife, who is extremely skeptical about my other books said this was one of the best books I've written so far. This book was written for carpenters, contractors and even sophisticated do-it-yourselfers. I don't recommend this book to anyone who doesn't understand the fundamentals of stair building.

Muslim Mission in an Age of Empire

Author: Ron Geaves

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing

ISBN: 147427174X

Category: History

Page: 256

View: 359

Based on hitherto untapped source materials, this book charts the history of Muslim missionary activity in London from 1912, when the first Indian Muslim missionaries arrived in London, until 1944. During this period a unique community was forged out of British converts and native Muslims from various parts of the world, which focused itself around a purpose built mosque in Woking and later the first mosque to open in London in 1924. Arguing that an understanding of Muslim mission in this period needs to place such activity in the context of colonial encounter, Islam and Britain provides a background narrative into why Muslim missionary activity in London was part of a variety of strategies to engage with European expansion and overzealous Christian missionary activity in India. Ron Geaves draws on research undertaken in India and Pakistan, where the Ahmadiya missionaries have kept extensive archives of this period which until now have been unavailable to scholars. Unique in providing an account of Islamic missionary work in Britain from the Islamic perspective, Islam and Britain adds to our knowledge and understanding of British Muslim history and makes an important contribution to the literature concerned with Islamic missiology.
