PRACTICAL MILLINERY. First Edition 1922. Florence Anslow.
PRACTICAL MILLINERY BY FLORENCE ANSLOW.
A comprehensive guide to women’s hat making – this 1922 book is a real gem. The author was, amongst other things, a lecturer and teacher at the Royal Technical College, Salford. This book has a neat, had written inscription by, one assumes, the first owner – “Bertha Wilson. Royal Technical College, Salford”
Great care has been taken with this book over the years – there a few pencil & ink inscriptions in the margin where relevant notes have been neatly written.
CONDITION: Spine and hard cover edgeworn top and bottom. Binding is still tight, but a few sections have a slight play in them. Corners badly bumped. Internal pages clean & bright with frontispiece in good condition, still with protective paper. Some foxing and age related soiling, but very minor. Internally a book in very good condition, externally shows the age related wear & marks expected.
Hardback with blue cover and cloth spine. 214 pages which include basic patterns. A list of books on needlework, dressmaking and dress design takes up another 16 pages. A fascinating snapshot of the period
