Reader's note

This charming little pocket-sized book is a well-loved classic by Charles Sale. The Specialist concerns the professional activities of one Lem Putt, a specialist in the simpler forms of sanitary engineering. Written in Lem's vernacular, it takes the form of an explanation of his methods to one of his customers. Lem is an artist in his own way, with a knowledge of human nature which enables him, in his constructions, to provide for its most delicate psychological as well as material needs. This vintage book is one among a bounty of stunning classic literature vintage books and obscure gems in our second hand bookstore!
