If so, this could well be the book for you. Published in 1938, it belonged to the missus' grandfather.

I hope you can make out the text. If there is a particular subject that catches your eye, let me know and I'll add the relevant page. Apparently there are several other books of a similar ilk - I'll see if I can find them.

I have a copy of that! It is a fantastic book! Not very health and safety, but then what really is? Cheesy

Have a copy in the bookshelf at home.

Still comes in handy occasionally.

Republished in 2010 and available for as little as £8.

Obviously the First Edition is a bit more expensive but can still be had for under £30.

Think I'd better get it and add it to MY library. Smiley
