The How-to Book of Repairing, Rewiring, and Restoring Lamps and Lighting Fixtures, by Rachel Martens.

The one practical handbook you need if you are looking to save time and money by doing your own lamp repairs or are interested in antique lamps and home restoration.

Following the step-by-step pictures and text, you'll learn how to repair and install lamps, chandeliers, wall sconces, and dimmer switches, and choose appropriate lamp shades; restore and convert oil and kerosene lamps and vintage Victorian, Art Nouveau and Art Deco lamps without damaging their antique value; as well as how to create your own lighting from candlesticks, vases, bottles, and other collectibles or flea market finds. 

With vintage 1970s photographs and a complete illustrated glossary of lamp parts and electrical supplies.
