2nd edition. "Whilst many branches of Leather Decoration are touched upon, it will be noted that the more detailed instructions are gived in reference to 'incised work'. This is simply because, not only does such work need greater care to obtain success, but also because it is often the foundation of more elaborate work, and, in combination with staining, is capable of yielding remarkably artistic effects, even where little or no relief-work is attempted." Pp.viii/67/7(ads), black & white frontispiece + 5 further photp plates + 21 figure illustrations. Grey cloth with blind-staped decorated border to front, minor edge wear. G+.
