“The issue of the nineteenth edition is an indication of the value of this book. It is written by a man who has the double advantage of having been in the trade, or ‘on the plank’, as basketmakers call it, and having experience in teaching – the happiest combination for writing a book on craft.
The book covers the making of most articles in everyday use for which cane is a suitable medium and gives clear diagrams and detailed instructions which are easy to follow.
A scheme for a four-year course is included, which can be applied in schools and which suggests work within the capabilities of both junior and senior scholars.”
