An annotated bibliography for the study of building hardware: R64-81/1978-21E-PDF

"Building hardware is an important subject for both the historical archaeologist and the restorationist. However, neither profession appears to be involved in any extensive research of it. To provide some degree of assistance, comments are provided for several hundred references. These are arranged in categories of general references, bolts(including nuts), brackets, fasteners, grilles and railings, gutter supports, grates, hasps, hinges, knockers, latches, locks (including keys and padlocks), nails, roofing, screws, shutter catches, sliding bolts, timber anchors and wall anchors. The references come from a variety of sources, have been written for various purposes and often are only of limited value"--Abstract, p. 4.
