About this Item

Original green cloth with title and leaf-pattern decoration embossed in black; octavo (9.5 x 6 inches); (5), 622 pp. 6 pages adverts at rear. 890 engraved illustrations. Top edge gilt. Though no date anywhere in the book, we believe this to be the first edition of this most famous encyclopedia of needlecraft. Assuming that the work grew in size over time, this edition has the fewest number of pages in comparing with all copies catalogued on OCLC and does not have the color plates that are found in later printings - likely added as the fame and popularity of the work grew. Covers very lightly soiled, pages slightly darkened due to paper quality, still near fine. Bookseller Inventory # 17906
