Good. Heavy scuffing and some creasing to dust jacket. Light staining and discoloration on page edges. A few light marks to interior. Binding worn but strong, text and images clear. All proceeds from purchases from BooksKC go to benefit the Rehabilitation Institute of Kansas City, a nonprofit organization which provides job services, training, and employment to individuals with disabilities.
I purchased a 1941 (first published 1934) hardback copy ( I love old books) of this wonderfully detailed book. The stitches are arranged alphabetically, of course, including other nicknames for the stitches and cross references. The drawings and instructions are some of the clearest I've ever seen. I have many embroidery books, but I refer to this one the most often. You hardly need another reference book.
