The Judge is a real bibliophile, and he haunts bookstores much like I haunt yarn shops. He has an endearing habit of picking up books for other people, and here are a couple by Barbara Abbey he gave me.
This small book was first published in 1949 by The Studio Publications, Inc., and revised by The Viking Press in 1962. The price on the dust jacket is $2.00. It's still available here.
Here's another book by Barbara Abbey published by Viking Press in 1971. It's a book club edition, so there is no pricing listed. Recent pricing at Amazon is around $50 and up
Neither of these books is listed in Ravelry's library, alas, but her book, "Knitting Lace" is there.
