SUMMARY- I have a much reduced (less than half the pages) edition of Ms. Lawergren's one tatting book, originally published in Sweden in 1955. There is no copyright date on the reprint I have, but there is a ten number long ISBN on the back cover, and a LACIS sticker on the front cover. I wish I had the original edition - something still to look for. There is a two page tutorial(in Swedish), 6 traditional edgings, a 12cm doily, a tiling motif, four necklaces and a choker, a lovely tiara, a 22cm doily, an 18x31cm table scarf that is beautiful, an 18cm doily, and a 26.5cm doily. Patterns are fairly traditional. I would love to see the rest.
