Up for bid is another marvelous Dakota Prairie Treasures Spiral Bound Book Republication™ of the original "Scientific Hat Making & Renovating" by Henry L. Ermatinger, Hatter, during the early Flapper and Prohibition era! This book was originally published c1919! (Original is NOT for sale)

"A complete and profusely illustrated course of instruction, enabling the novice to acquire the art of finishing and remodeling hats of all varieties according to tested and approved methods."

This HISTORIC item contains much information regarding Flapper and Prohibition era men's millinery work; from the proper tools to use and the hatter's techniques for making and restoring men's hats. This book covers various instructions and techniques used in the making, cleaning and restoring men's hats. It includes many images of the fabulously intricate and rare tools used in the milliner's process.

An excerpt:

"In publishing this book it has been our aim to give to hat finishers and renovators a text book such as has heretofore been possessed by practically every craft but that of hatting. While the need for such a book has been keenly realized, the jealousy with which the secrets of the trade have been guarded by those competent to teach them has been an insurmountable difficulty to overcome in the past.

The present volume, it is believed, is as complete and explicit as it is possible to make. "Scientific Hat Finishing and Renovating" is really a remarkable achievement. The reader will soon realize that it is more than a set of instructions--it is this, plus a running fire of confidential advice and counsel from a man who has been a practical hatter all his life and has learned the little shortcuts and economies that distinguish the expert from the beginner. If you need a cigar-box for pouncing paper and chalk he does not advise you to get a costly cabinet. Throughout the book there are hardheaded hints that will be of value to the hatter already established as well as to the man planning to open a shop."

Our new line of Spiral Bound Book Republications™ oh-so-conveniently lie flat while in use!

This is a unbelievably nice touch if you have every tried to read a pattern's instructions while your hands are full of your in progress project. As an avid needleworker myself my personal experience prompted my choice of spiral binding for it's ease-of-use alone. I bet you'll love it too!
