Book about basic carpentry and furniture-making?

What is the
book on basic carpentry and furniture-making techniques? I have started to pick up DIY furniture making as a hobby, but I don't know any of the basics, like how to make joints and kerfed edges, how to cut plywood without splintering, which tools and materials to use and how, and so on. It should be a reference/how-to book with lots of pictures. When dealing with obscure hobbies there often exists a legendary out-of-print, hard-to-find tome published the 1970s that everyone in the field has and cherishes, like this one
(which I have), but which one is it?
