The Encyclopedia of Judging and Exhibiting - fully revised

This is the first and only comprehensive textbook involving
psychometrics...the mechanics of decision making as it pertains to
fora show and all its attendant phases and phrases.

A complete encyclopedic work, it brings together in one volume that
which was formerly sought in many places.

What judge has not searched through many books for authoritative
answers to judging problems?

What Exhibitor has not wondered what criteria Judges will use?

What Schedule and Classification Committee has not wondered how to
classify the myriad types?

What Show Chairman and personnel have not prayed for more uniformity
in judging standards?

Never before has such detailed information on the complete ethics and
theory of judging been compiled in one book - a book which clarifies
and explains in simple language the entire terminology of the flora
show.  Each chapter is headed with suggested classes and ends with an
easy-to-use summary that can be used while actually judging a show or
preparing exhibits.

Over 200 intricate sketches by the author identify types most often
confused by Judges, Exhibitors and Classification Committees.

The ENCYCLOPEDIA is exactly the equipment the exhibitor must have to
enable him to select and construct the best possible exhibits.  It is
precisely the tool the Judge needs to do the best work, to avoid
criticism, to ensure that no important points are overlooked.  To do
this, the Judge must have standardized guidelines to facilitate fair
and equitable awarding.  All this and more is found in the

How to determine substance in a rose or dominance in a design?  What
is that elusive thing called distinction?  How does modern differ from
abstract design?

Look it up in the ENCYCLOPEDIA

*Christmas home decorations	*niches			*mobiles

and hundreds more!
