For the marudai
In English

The book portion is from the 1875 revised edition of Mark Campbell's SELF-INSTRUCTOR
IN THE ART OF HAIR WORK, DRESSING HAIR, MAKING CURLS, SWITCHES, BRAIDS, AND HAIR
JEWELRY OF EVERY DESCRIPTION. The original edition (published in 1867) is in the
public domain, and is available in several digital formats at no charge.

The editors omitted some of the Godey's braids that duplicate others in the book portion.

Although this is a hair work book, the braids can be made on the marudai with kumihimo
fibers and are very attractive. Some braids are unique; others have Japanese counterparts.
However, the braider must decipher Campbell's instructions.

Some braid names are identical in the book. Numbers have been added to make them unique.

Braids 112-126 are those excerpted from Godey's.
