1. Practical Instructions Telling How to Tan, Dress, Color and Manufacture or Make into Articles of Ornament,      Wear and Use.

by ALBERT B. FARMHAM Taxidermist and Furrier 1900s 

INTRODUCTION
Author’s Introduction : Probably one of the oldest human industries is Home Dressing and Manufacturing of Furs 
and Skins, as this method of clothing the body has persisted from the stone age to the present
time. As a happy combination of dress and ornament, furs will always continue to lead. At
the present time the manufacture of furs has been highly developed, with the aid of machinery
And specialized workmen it is conducted on a .scale which compares favorably with any business
activity. However the principles remain the same, And good results can still be attained by hand
labor. To the average "out-door" man it is a positive pleasure to see the stiff, dirty, raw skin
develop into the soft, clean, flexible material, and later to shape it into a protection from the cold
and an ornament combined. In addition to the pleasure of tanning and
making into some article for your home or office use, furs or skins caught or killed by yourself,
there is a cash market for such articles. In fact, right here is the "Long End" of the profit.

PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE OF FUR DRESSING AND FUR DYEING BY WILLIAM E. AUSTIN, B.S. CONSULTING CHEMIST TO THE FUR INDUSTRY ILLUSTRATED

Author’s Introduction : THE great increase in the use of furs during the past few decades has caused the fur dressing and dyeing
industry to rise from relative insignificance to considerable importance as a branch of applied chemistry.
The past eight years, moreover, have witnessed the virtual transference of the leadership in the dressing and dyeing of furs from Europe to America, and in the quality and variety of products, the domestic industry is now in every way the equal of, and in many respects superior to the foreign. The great bulk of American furs which formerly were sent to Leipzig, Paris or London to be dressed and dyed, are now being dressed and dyed in this country.

Author’s Introduction : The object of this book is to encourage the man and boy in the country, on whom the future supply of fur depends, to take an interest in the small fur bearers that live in his district, and protect them during the summer and during the breeding season, and to only trap and hunt in the Fall and Winter, when the pelts are prime and the fur is valuable. Trapping in season will never deplete the supply of furs. Most of the fur bearers are very prolific and attain maturity quickly and are found in large quantities in nearly every state in the Union.
