Collection of black-and-white photos and drawings detailing principles and designs for heating with wood. "Unfortunately, the image of the fireplace as a viable means of efficient heat production suffers from the stigma of wastefulness...The fireplace is most often presented as a decorative adjunct to home ornamentation" (from the introduction).
