Hand Craft: An English Exposition Of Slojd, by John, D. Sutcliffe, 1890, is a scarce and important text for practical use by both the student and teacher of the Slojd (Sloyd) manual arts education system.  
 
"For some generations there has been cultivated in Sweden, and amongst Scandinavian and kindred peoples, a course of training in personal ingenuity, unknown in most other countries... Such a course or system of training is called Slojd... The nearest equivalent in English to the Swedish word Slojd would seem to be Hand-Craft, or mechanical training for the hand."
