Rood, Will C.
Advanced Studies for Those Using the Dressmakers' Magic Scale, a New Book, Profusely Illustrated. Designed for Those Who Have Learned to Use the Magic Scale, and Wish to Study Deeper in the Science of Garment Cutting.
Softcover 8vo, 32pp. Pattern diagrams throughout. Faded name on the front wrap and a few scraps of paper with drafting notes including for "father's shirt" and "mamma's measure." Good condition with moderate edgewear and offsetting from the inserted scraps. The Rood Magic Scale was a solid triangular measure with curves cut from the interior—a sort of reverse French curve, if a bit clunkier in form. The device was sold with basic instructions and additional "advanced" studies could be ordered by mail.
