SUMMARY- I could take or leave the two collar patterns, but several of the doilies are really stunning, and there is a photo of a tatted tablecloth for a small round cafe-style table with lots of lush long fringe. Unlike books 1, 2, and 4, there are no diagrams. The instructions are in Spanish only and written notation to boot. They are not broken down in any way. There's some innovative design here, but even a very experienced tatter would have trouble unless they knew the language.

I tried unsuccessfully to find a copyright date for these booklets. My best guess is the late 1990's - but it is a guess.
