Reference book on Brick (and other masonry)

Handbook of Brick Masonry Construction, John A. Mulligan

Mine’s a first edition by McGraw-Hill Book Company 1942, but there may be more recent editions. Anyway, it’s a killer book on brick. Mainly brick, but also concrete, lime, mortar, weathering, efflorescence, and the list just goes on and on. Great brick reference book. It’s hard to find newer books that are this comprehensive and go into this much detail, and when you do they usually start at about $75. Easily worth $15 plus shipping. Available on Amazon too, but for $24 plus shipping.
