|Title||Buddington Dress-Cutting Machine|
"The Buddington Dress Cutting Machine". Seven metal parts to assemble, plus two paper measuring drafts. Booklet included. [--1988 cataloging, as "Drafting supplies"]
See Provenance field. When viewed all together, this appears to be at least three different copies of Buddington's dress cutting machine and two copies of Buddington's sleeve cutting machine (with 2-3 stray parts?), in a box labeled inside as "Buddington Dress & Sleeve Cutting Machine". One dress cutting machine is the original edition, circa 1892, and two (?) are the Improved edition of 1895; the sleeve cutting machines are almost identical (may not have been "improved"?) and cannot be reliably associated with any of the three dress cutting machines.
Published in Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.; by Mr. & Mrs. F. E. Buddington.
Found in Collection, July 1988.
A box containing more pieces, pamphlets, and a note saying "Donated by Dr. McClure" was found in Box 270 in a closet at the back of 2088 LeBaron, in November 2011.
