Excerpt from Scientific Hat Finishing and Renovating: 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

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 front a man w,ho ,has been a practical hatter all his life and ha.A 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.
