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.
Fair. Good copy for reading, may have heavy page wear with writing textual notes highlighting or be an heavily used ex library copy with library markings, stickers or stamps. Dust jacket or accessories may not be included.
Fair Poor jacket. 1954 reprint. The dustjacket has some small sections torn away around the edges. Some foxing to the free end page. Firm binding. Clean inner pages throughout. Good condition copy. Acceptable: a readable copy. All pages and the cover are intact (dust cover may be missing). Pages can include considerable notes (in pen or highlighter) but notes cannot obscure the text. Most items will be dispatched the same or the next working day.
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.
