How To Electroplate Baby Shoes for Pleasure and Profit, Chicago, Warner Electric Company, Inc., 1957, first edition, 4to (11" x 9"), SB, spiral bound cardFBBI)# stock w/ orange & black illustrated titles, VG / none. Corners bumped & creased, covers slightly soiled, top right corner of text block bumped.

115 pp. Profusely illustrated in b&w. Everything you ever wanted to know about electroplating almost anything, and a crash course in business too. Laid in are a form letter pushing the certificate of merit issued by the company and a sample of the certificate. The final leaf is an envelope for holding reference materials, containing a blue flyer for sample baby shoes. Perfectly hilarious!    [Book ID # 791]
