3rd printing, signed by author on title page; previous owner's bookplate on front endpaper.

Lavishly illustrated with more than three hundred photographs, this book shows the history and humanity of the trade blanket prior to World War II. It also discusses the status of contemporary collectors' editions. Examples from all five major manufacturers -- Capps, Oregon City, Buell, Racine, and Pendelton -- are classified as to patterns and time period, making it possible for the amateur or avid collector to identify blankets in their own collections.
