William W. Klenke
One of my favorite woodworking authors was William W. Klenke who wrote books for the Manual Arts Press, the publishing company of Charles A. Bennett in Peoria, Illinois. I just acquired this lovely classic, signed by the author for $10.00 plus postage. Joints and How They Are Made was published in 1925. What I like best about Klenke's books are his beautiful line drawn illustrations like that shown below.
