More details about this CD Publication:
Contains 156 pages in PDF file format. Originally published in 1919 by Hat Trade co. as Scientic Hat Finishing and Renovating.
In publishing this book it has been our aim to give to hat finishers and renovators a text book such as has heretofore been possessed by practically every craft but that of hatting. While the need for such a book has been keenly realized, the jealousy with which the secrets of the trade have been guarded by those competent to teach them has been an insurmountable difficulty to overcome in the past.The present volume, it is believed, is an complete and explicit as it is possible to make. "Scientific Hat Finishing and Renovating" is really a remarkable achievement. The reader will soon realize that it is more than a set of instructions - it is this, plus a running fire of confidential advice and counsel from a man who has been a practical hatter all his life and has learned the little shortcuts and enconomies that distinguish the expert from the beginner. If you need a cigar-box for pouncing paper and chalk he does not advise you to get a costly cabinet. Throughout the book there are hardheaded hints thta will be of value to the hatter already established as well as to the man planning to open a shop.Besides the satisfaction of filling a genuine need and helping to elevate the craft of hatting, we feel a sentimental interest in sponsoring this book, for John Henry Ermatinger, father of the author, was one of our early customers and Mr. Ermatinger himself is still on our books as a regular purchaser. As far back as 1862 John Henry Ermatinger was purchasing goods from us; and his son, the author of this book, has in his possession an old bill from us dated in that year.While we have made no endeavor to advertise our products in this book, we wish to call the reader's attention to the fact that all supplies mentioned may be obtained from the Business Man's Point of View

Customer Testimonials and Reviews:
Hi, I just want to tell you I received the CD today! I absolutely love your elegant packaging! I think I will get another CD to give as a gift for my best friend who is crazy about crochet! Sue H.
Dear folks at Patterns-on-CD, thank you for shipping the cd out so quickly. I am new at crocheting and I am finding the instructions very clear and easy to follow! Your CD is so easy to use. I can print out just the pages I am working on and scribble my notes on the print-out without worry. My dog chewed part of the pattern sheet I was working on, but no worries, I just print out another sheet! I am keeping the print outs in a 3 ring binder and even printed the lace images I like for the binder cover. Thank you for making this rare antique book available on CD ROM!
