I would not be so pessimistic. I would gladly buy copies from older M├╝llersystem books and would be willing to pay a reasonable price. The originals - if you can get them - are so expensive. 
But the market is small for those goodies.

I agree with posaune. I would buy some.

It could only be a small thing though, a service to the old profession. Exactly like these forums.

I wonder if it is you are looking for, I accidentally found that I can open this webpage. Do not ask me how could I do that, because I do not remember how I did that. I am excited to have recovered it. But I am also sad that when I read the conversation along that there were errors.........

Copy it while it last.

I could reproduce all Muellerbooks and reprint them but it would be still expensive.

Was anyone ever able to get a copy of this book?  It seems it's pretty hard to find.  I have a handful of pages- trouser draft and few on "designing based on anatomy".  I like that the theory is pretty clear and easy to follow.

When you save the web page file, you can extract the photos and assemble into a pdf if you want. Cheers

I am selling the vintage one on eBay right now, I have here. I don't need all those Books I have anymore.
Someone will get it soon or later. Cutting books are pretty expensive now, vintage tailoring tools too. In 2010 those material was cheap in comparison today. You hardly find anything anymore. Maybe that's way, it has become too scarce.

amazing thank you!  It looks like the scans stop around page 90?

Thanks for also sharing the link of the tailor.  I'd never seen his stuff, but I like the shapes and the fabric selection a lot.

oh nice!  Seems like a good price.  I just blew my book budget for at least a couple of months, but will keep an eye on it.

I have sold the original ,,The Modern Mitchell System of Men's Designing" in eBay now for 169$.
There was a lucky person, who owns the vintage book in California. I guess he enjoys it in a tailor class and his mates will envy him.

I have one more in mint condition. Will also sell fast.

I just woke up, the mouth watering book is sold in one night. The book was too cheap!
