There is a book called Early Nineteenth Century Crafts and Trades published by Dover. It is a facsimile and simply and clearly discribes many different trades such as brick-maker, rope-maker, weavers, pin-maker, paper-maker, bookbinder, ladie's dress-maker, callico-printer, tin-plate worker, brazier, button-maker, cabinet-maker, saddler, cork-cutter, glass-blower, and watch-maker. It sometimes gives the wages of a trade as well. For example, brick-maker was a family business and paid well: two to three guineas a week. The work was hard but the whole family got to work and be together.
