My name is Maria Vaccaro, I am a student at the department of interpreters and translators, university of Torino, Italy.
I am desperately looking for a glossary concerning antiques restoration (e.g. tools, substances used, like solvents, techniques etcâ€¦).
I need your help!
I will send you a copy of my research on â€œwood antiquesâ€ in Italian, English and Spanish.
Could I suggest for the tools that you get hold of a copy of R.A.Salaman's book "Dictionery of Woodworking Tools" (ISBN 1-879335-79-4) and also his "Dictionery of Leatherworking Tools, c.17000 - 1950" (ISBN 1-879335-72-7) which are standard references used by tool collectors. They cover almost the entire range of tools used in British/American practice.
