SUMMARY- Pages 92 and 93 covers tatting, and gives you a collar and cuff set, a hankie edging, another collar, and an elaborate 8pt doily - no basic tutorial. This book is packed with interesting stuff in teeny tiny lettering that wasn't that elaborate script the German's used to use. There was also a small booklet by Helene Mallin and some hand-typed pattern pages(corrections maybe?) included in the paper band along with the large pattern charts. The cloth patterns are all laid one over another so they look like a shrunk road map of a very busy city. Figuring out the pattern pieces you need from them would take some Athenic effort.
