Do-It-Yourself Encyclopedia (set of 12); for home-owner, craftsman and hobbyist in twelve volumes

J.J. Little & Ives Co. 1955. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. Rarely seen as a complete set. This encyclopedia is a treasure trove of photos and pen illustrations of both DIY projects and, by the grace of its marketing, 1950s suburban life. While the projects and advice of Popular Mechanics are certainly sound, this set may bring the most joy to the artist or collagist who can make use of the thousands of magnificently kitschy visuals contained within. All volumes in good condition, though 10 and 11 have some superficial damage to the spine and covers. Good. Item #206

Price: $65.00
