KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a thoroughly practical book, on basic principles, not a lesson in taste or periods (except as they are involved in the larger subject). He goes into questions of woods, treatment, care, of fabrics, colors, and so on. But his main thesis is how to use what you have to best advantage, how to judge its fitness, how to make necessary changes from angle of better taste, appropriateness and longevity. It is a book for people who have limited budgets for doing over their homes, and who want to make them go far.
