"The purpose of this book is to make the art of shading lamps and candles a little less of a problem to the amateur craftsman; and it is hoped, also, that those who have already had some experience as shade makers, will find some practical hints that will be of value to them...
...With patience, careful workmanship and good taste, as fine a lampshade as money can buy, can be produced at a fraction of the cost of those offered in the stores."
What a historically educational and delightful art instructional piece this is!
