This is a straight reprint of an extremely technical tailors' manual from 1886, without any supplemental material or introduction. While undeniably useful for gaining an understanding of how men's garments of the late nineteenth century were constructed, you need a serious grounding in tailors' techniques and pattern drafting to make much sense of it.

Seriously not for beginning sewers.
