This is a very comprehensive, tradesman-oriented, well illustrated manual from the early 20th century, covering shops, tools, materials, paper-hanging, color mixing, and all aspects of painting (decorative effects through spray painting). With four brilliant color plates illustrating various applications and styles. Very scarce in this edition, Painting and Decorating was a popular trade manual, and was reprinted and revised several times throughout the early 1900s.
