Is that a book by Chaudry?

Sir, yes Sir.

I've been looking for a comparison copy myself, but haven't found it amongst the usual suspects. I'm curious if it carries close similarities to the Mitchell system published about the same time.

No, it bears no resemblance to the "New" or "Modern" Mitchell system which was done in the 1950's. It's block base is very close to the T&C system but with some changes, such as 3/8" seams are factored throughout, a couple of calculations are different, slight difference in the squaring of the shoulders with a slightly higher NP. Honestly, all the drafts that would benefit the majority are already posted on the C&T forum.
