Regal's American Garment Cutter Volume 1 Request
« on: December 19, 2020, 11:04:42 AM »
Does anyone happen to have a copy of volume 1 of Regal's American Garment Cutter in either the fifth or sixth edition that they would be willing to share?

Now that I have had a cup of coffee I see that this is a second edition 1908, a time of very interesting and short lived stylistic choices.
There is a third edition which is dated 1914.
What year would the fifth or sixth edition be?

Thank you for your reply :) I did see these, but they are sadly a bit too old.

The Fifth edition was published around 1934 and the Sixth was published around 1944.

This does look interesting, but what edition would 1924 or '25 be?  My particular period of interest is right around there, as that's generally the most flattering silhouette for me

That would have been the fourth edition.

Have you seen either of  those editions anywhere?
I assume you have searched abe books and what about libraries?

I've checked online and haven't had any luck finding it on sites like Abebooks. It does appear to be in a few university libraries (according to the Worldlib website), but I'm not sure if those libraries participate in the interlibrary loan program. Unfortunately, with the current events, my local library (I'm located in the Portland, OR area) has haulted the interlibrary loans until further notice.
