B&W Illustrations; This is an oversized paperback book with cardstock covers and a glued spine. The book is in Near Fine condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. Page 25 has been inserted upside-down and with the wrong title - It should be listed as Part II (of IV) , but shows Part IV. - checking the pages, all the text pages are correct and there is no duplication of patterns. " One of the most interesting documents in the all too meagre archives of American hand weaving is a book of drawings by one John Landes, who appears to have been a professional weaver of the Revolutionary period." This remarkable old pattern book is one of the treasures of the Frishmuth Collection in the Pennsylvania Museum, where many of the weaving fraternity have had the privilege of examining it. And it is through the generous permission of the museum that the present publication is made possible."
