This book is a gem. It’s an old publication put out in 1962 for Home Economics departments. There were several editions that followed. I’ve combined through it carefully over the last few days, and there’s some great illustrations and wonderful black-and-white photographs. I know of some experts who are still teaching many of these techniques today. You might check it out on the internet. A google search showed several copies available.
There’s some dated stuff in the front (you’ll really get a chuckle out of it), but I would think it’s worth very penny.
