Complete Book of Tanning
By James Churchill - Churchill covers the tanning of many different types of animals, using many different methods. No other tanning book contains so much varied information, and for this reason its a good one to have.
Types of skins include squirrel, raccoon, muskrat, weasel, skunk, mink, rabbit, deer, moose, elk, fox, coyote, otter, fisher, beaver, bear, sheep, goat, calf, pig, horse, cow, alligator, fish, snake, frog, lizard and birds. Tanning methods include chrome tanning, acid tanning, alum tawing, brain tanning, and vegetable tanning.
There is simply no more thorough book on the tanning of furs available. Churchill does include recipes and instructions for each project. 198 pages, hard cover
