Title: Illustrated Notebook of Patterns for Women's...
Publication Date: 1945
Cloth-backed paper over boards (10.25 by 13.75 inches); approx. pp. 200, handwritten and illustrated in black and red ink. Contains more than 50 patterns for women's clothing, as well as few for little girls -- including dresses, blouses, skirts, coats, and underwear. Boards a bit worn and warped, but contents are nice and fresh. Very little text -- all of it in Dutch -- but the patterns are universally applicable. Presumably created by a student, the patterns are painstakingly neat and exact, and accompanied by drawings of the finished apparel as well as wonderfully adept drawings of ladies modeling them, offering complete looks from hat to shoe. Also includes cut-outs of patterns, many of them still holding pins, laid-in here and there. Lovely, legible, and careful throughout (you can see that they were first drawn in pencil, then traced over in ink, and the student's ruler and blotting paper are laid-in at the back). Unique and accomplished. A gem. Bookseller Inventory # D3115
