An excerpt:

"Although it is best when possible to have personal instruction from a competent teacher, there are many who have neither the time nor opportunity this to gain the knowledge necessary to success in millinery; it is for such as these therefore that these lessons are compiled...No better pen could attempt such a task with good promise of success than that of Madame Anna Ben-Yusuf, whose experience as an artistic designer in Paris and London, and whose ability as a preceptress placed her in charge of public and philanthropic institutions in London, where millinery is taught as a science and where she obtained prizes for her work, besides testimonials sighed by Members of Parliament and heads of great schools of learning..."
