This book guides the reader through the intricacies of identifying a piece of lace, listing and illustrating the points to look through in each lace. It covers the whole range of lace from all parts of the world, selecting for examination those major types which the collector or dealer is most likely to come across or hear about. The numerous photographs are arranged to assist comparison of diagnostic features and to put together laces which might be confused with each other so that their differences, sometimes subtle, can be appreciated.

Pat Earnshaw's interest in lace began as a collector but she was soon involved in giving lectures and study days on the identification and other aspects of antique laces, not only in Britain but in frequent lecture tours in the USA, Australia and Europe. The Identification of Lace was her first book. Fourteen others have followed, all addressing issues of lace.Review:
“I found this book a very easy and enjoyable read. I am most impressed by the large number of beautiful and interesting lace photos...I feel that after reading this book I can also identify many forms of lace.” ―Tatting Tales (November 2009)
