Book of Trades: Ladies' Dress-maker

On the 21 May 1809 John Prince inscribed his name inside The Book of Trades, or Library of the Useful Arts, Part III, London, 1805.

On Friday 22 February 2013 this book became part of my book collection, and herewith I'd like to start sharing it with you. I absolutely love it - the descriptions of the trades are fantastic - what the trade involved and who was involved in the process. To commence, I'll jump through to Page 37, the Ladies' Dress-maker.

How neat! I love touching and smelling old books...there's something special about knowing that other people throughout history held and read them.
