Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1892 edition. Excerpt: ... out nf centre; the narrower the closet the more it should bo fixed out of centre. If you keep these distances from tho back they will give a nice seat and allow you to have a flap that when lifted up will stand back; it also gives you a chance to bring the lead pipe into the arm of the basin.
