About the book

American Patented Nutmeg Graters 1854-1935...Plus!

 is a 530 page reference guide for novice and advanced collectors of American manufactured nutmeg graters. The primary purpose is to inform the reader on how various patented nutmeg graters function. It is a compilation of 136 patents, over 575 colored photographs, 24 black and white photos, 175 explanatory patent drawings, and over 45 advertisements and illustrations. Scattered throughout the book are collector’s comments and vignettes about the volatile nutmeg. It contains information on nutmeg graters combined with various kitchen implements, a few foreign nutmeg graters commonly found in the United States and indexes of patentees and patent dates. A pictorial thumbnail section is included for quick identification of selected nutmeg graters. This is a reference guide, not a price guide, although there are general evaluations of four categories for each nutmeg grater. Not a coffee-table picture book, but a reference guide including a ribbon bookmark and...a sparkle of fun.
