This is an auction for IN THE COMPANY OF STONE: THE ART OF THE STONE WALL, by Dan Snow.

“The compellingly tactile quality of stone entices Dan Snow to build drystone walls and other structures, sometimes crafting such autonomous shapes as spheres. Likening the process of walling to alchemy, Snow conveys a boundless delight with his occupation. Whether describing the material that occupies his days, or expressing intricate knowledge of how stone responds at each stage of construction, Snow writes beautifully. Befitting the narrative, a felicitous clarity distinguishes Peter Mauss' photographs, which reveal Snow's artistry at work. In all, this handsome book discloses the potency of stone as displayed in the deftly crafted walls and staircases, raised planting beds, and fanciful grotto that enhance the houses, gardens, and open landscapes of Snow's fortunate clients.”
