SUMMARY- I've finally found a beautifully preserved original edition of this book. It's a rather nice collection of traditional patterns, and comes from a time period when there was a LOT of competition in the needle arts. The cover shown is a reprint put out by Barbara Bannister(Thanks, Barbara!) in 1986.
