Published by Acanthus Press, 48 West 22nd Street, New York, NY 10010. Reprints two rare 19th-century drapery manuals from the Winterthus Library (the first by Arrowsmith, the second by King). An introduction by Gail Caskey Winkler explains their use and the context of their publication: by subscription, in England, for the increasing numbers of households that could afford fabrics and be concerned with fashion (such decorating was men's province at that time). Both give detailed descriptions of workroom techniques and include illustrations. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
