Product Description

Product Description

In the days before refrigeration, the very wealthy would use specially designed icehouses to store food from one season to the next. This book examines the design and development of icehouses, using many illustrations to explain how they worked and how they improved as scientific knowledge increased. With a detailed description of the different uses of icehouses, as well as examples of some of the most elaborately decorative structures, this book provides a rare insight into an intriguing subject.

This is a great book for its size. It cannot of course cover the whole subect in such a small volume but it has a good try. The photos are interesting too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definative 9 Oct 2003
By Mothy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you don't know anything about Icehouses then this is the book to read. If you know something but want to know more then buy it also.
I own an Icehouse and this book explained many of the things I didn't know when I bought it.
It's a very English book and covers mostly Icehouses in Britain (the concept is similar but different in the states). Good pictures and diagrams, a great little book.
