About this Item

This book presents exact-size facsimiles of the existing one hundred plates, title page and colophon of the 1568 edition of Nicolas Bassee's New Modelbuch now housed in the rare book collections of the Newberry Library in Chicago, Illinois. The plates feature charted designs for counted cross stitch and other counted thread embroidery techniques, angular patterns for double running stitch, various forms for surface embroidery and geometric bands for satin stitch. The illustrated introduction provides information on Bassee and his work, with historical background on the development of the embroidery pattern book, as well as an analysis of the plates. This collection of sixteenth-century textile patterns is an important primary source for the history of European embroidery and design. 123 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 6386
