Originally published in 1936, this book formed part of The Craftsman Series, which aimed to give secondary school age children an insight into 'the development of constructive activities in the sphere of material things'. The text is comprised of extracts from the complete version of The Din of a Smithy (1932) by J. A. R. Stevenson; these extracts are arranged into short chapters to form a coherent narrative. The narrative gives an account of how the author established his own smithy and became involved in the creation of decorative ironwork. Chapters also provide information on the various tools and processes involved in smithing. This is a highly readable book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in ironwork and books for schools.
