I recently bought a couple of anitque planes. Is there a book that I can use to identify them and see how to properly use them?

'The Handplane Book' by Garret Hack (1997 Tauton Press) is an excellent book on the topic. Great information on collecting planes, their use, repairing and tuning them up.
