VOGUE'S 26th KNITTING BOOK
Published by Conde Nast Publications (London, UK)
Undated but believed to be early to mid-1940s (one of the advertisements features a woman in 'forces' uniform)

Small format softback booklet - 52 pages - contains several colour photographs as well as black and white
Dimensions: approx. 6" x 8.5" (approx. 15 cms x 21.5cms)
Please note: this is a much * smaller * format than the booklets produced later in the 1940s, possibly due to wartime paper rationing

This edition contains the usual stunning range of Vogue fashion knitwear. It's diffiult to decide which to feature here! Cardigans, sweaters, jackets, hats, slippers, gloves, a pretty lacy scarf - all very chic, feminine designs. Also includes a few patterns for men
As was customary at the time, the instructions for each garment are given in ONE size only, though the sizes do vary from garment to garment.

A rare and highly collectible volume. These vintage Vogue Knitting Books are becoming increasingly difficult to source, especially from the 1940s

In good condition. Some creasing to cover - including a prominent diagonal fold at the bottom corner (please see photo) - plus a couple of small stains to the cover. Front and back covers are a little grubby. General age discolouration. A couple of small corner folds to internal pages. All pages are also a little creased/dented at the bottom outer corner But otherwise very good. Binding is tight. Internal pages are clean and free from stains, tears and annotations
