|My copy. Where did it come from...?|
Image is from the 1824 edition of The Book of English Trades. There were numerous editions of this text with differing illustrations for the trades, and a varying selection of trades. HathiTrust has many of these editions online, and by comparing the image and where it appears was able to conclude it was from the 1824 edition because the image was on the verso facing the text. The 1827 edition has it on the other side... In the 1818 edition a different bookbinder faces the other way.
|1824, position and image match my copy.|
|1827, same image, but on facing page.|
|1818, different binder facing in opposite direction. |
The number of rolls on the rack in the background varies, too.
And, on the subject of racks of rolls, and because it's past lunchtime, here a picture of "pizza cutters" I recently added to my collection...
