They are amazing books and full of information. If you look, you can see that they even give you an outline (albeit tiny) of the pattern pieces that you would receive in the envelopes. Someone who is an expert seamstress can really put this to good use - I used to make my own clothing and found these invaluable for drafting patterns of my own. The illustrations are second to none and I love the colourisation of the outfits. These books are an example of what was being worn in 1940 wartime fashion.The condition of the book is as per the images. Please study these carefully as they form part of the description. I was asked how many pages this book has - it has 1098 pages and is complete / intact.
The item is described to the best of my ability and the condition is detailed in images. I cannot begin to describe how rare these books are and I have priced them at what I deem to be fair after consulting with friends who are huge on the 1940s scene. These do not come up very often for sale - particularly in such good condition for their age - and with no missing pages etc.I will not entertain stupid offers - if you think that offering 12p and a goat will clinch the deal then you are sadly mistaken and have wasted your time.
