About equally a publisher's catalogue and a conventional pattern book, "not so much intended to offer new and original studies, as to make a compilation from various published works" (Preface). Particularly interesting in that all designs are credited to their original publication, of which a number were not by Bicknell and Comstock. HITCHCOCK 173.
