Vintage 1940s 1950s book - knitting patterns for women, men, children and babies - includes lingerie

Knitted Garments for the Family
by Dorothy M. Beckett
Published by Odhams Press, London
Hardback book - undated but believed to date from the late 1940s or early 1950s

Hardback with light blueish grey cloth covers (features a skein of yarn on the front cover) - 256 pages - fully illustrated with black and white photographs and drawings, together with one colour plate

Provides a wide variety of knitting patterns for all the family - women, men, children and babies.
Features sweaters/jumpers, cardigans, dresses, lingerie / underwear, swim wear, accessories etc
Also some household items such as cushion/pillow covers and lacy curtains

In very good condition. Yellowing/age discolouration to cover (especially spine). Internal pages a little age discoloured. But otherwise remarkably good. Binding is tight though there is very slight movement. Minimal scuffing/bumping to cover. No major flaws. No stains, tears or annotations. It does not appear to have been handled a great deal

* I have omitted a photo of the cover in favour of showing more content but I am happy to supply a photo of the cover should you wish to see one prior to purchase *

Apologies for the high shipping costs - this is a heavy book. Shipping costs are usually estimated at time of listing (especially for combined shipping) but any significant overcharge (after allowing a small amount for packaging) will be refunded

Any questions, please feel free to ask
