    John K. Fitzpatrick

    I used to own a book which I gave away, I would like to find it again, but can’t remember the title.

    It was a large format book, perhaps from the 1970s, of reproductions of pamphlets from different sources [military, parks service, etc.], mostly DIY instructions for building and fixing just about everything. It had a red cover and was perhaps 500+ pages. I miss it, and like to acquire another copy.

    If you happen to know title, press, year etc., or a copy you want to sell, please let me know.

    Thanks, John



    Sounds interesting, but without author, publisher, title etc. gonna be difficult to find. Was it published for Navy? Army? or other? I picked up an awesome book published for the Navy in 1970 which talks about house construction and has a great section on logging. I don’t have it handy or I’d give you the title. I’ll post the title and publisher later.



    cant help you but if you find out what it is i would also be interested

    in it sounds like just my kind of book.

    I’m pretty sure it was not published by the military, or by a press as large as Rodale (I could be mistaken).
