SUMMARY- I'm glad the Kliots made these reproductions generally available again - there's some really lovely work locked away in these 100 year-old booklets. The second edition is greatly superior to the first edition. It not only includes a fifth work, but also ads the original covers of all five reproductions. Some things were not included, like the advertisements and the basic tatting instructions, but this book is well worth hunting down for the plethora of lovely patterns.
