About this Item

A handsome catalog, replete with fabric samples, from the New York garment center in its heyday (during the last decade before its contractors and manufacturers looked for cheaper labor abroad). No copies located on OCLC. Folio. 13.75 by 11.25 ins, 35 by 29 cm. 16 pp., all on heavy card stock. With 83 fabric swatches (not counting three squares with swatches now missing). Photographically illustrated title, followed by ten photo plates. Kenneth Trencher heavily advertised his line of Dry Manhattan Coats in Glamour and Vogue during the period. The photographs present models in gloves, hats, jewelry, and other accessories of the period, providing a great textile and fashion reference. The models themselves are slim, wholesome, perky, of course youthful and pretty, and unquestionably they represent an early fifties ideal. Samples include wool, cashmere/wool blends, Alaskan seal fur/ wool blends by Forstmann, Tweeds, Alpaca, Orpaca, Camel, Chinchilla, etc. Original manufacturers post-binding, diagonal pink & black cloth pattern on front cover. Minor bumping to corners, light shelfwear. Other than three missing samples, a few others have minor damage. Kenneth Trencher heavily advertised his line of Dry Manhattan Coats in Glamour and Vogue during the period, including such coats as the Traveler, the Voyager, the Guardsman, the Miracle Orpaca coat made from Alpaca. The photographs present models in gloves, hats, jewelry, and other accessories of the period, providing an invaluable textile and fashion reference. Bookseller Inventory # 002582

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
