SUMMARY- This small booklet is entirely in Dutch. As far as I can tell, the designer's name is not given. There is an ad for Anchor thread on the back cover. It came with an errata sheet printed on extremely cheap newsprint tucked into the front that is prematurely browning the better quality paper of the book. The designer was a fan of zigzag stitch. There are some very attractive classic designs that bumps up against unusual but misses by just a hair. Instructions are in written notation and not broken down at all. This booklet predates diagramming, and could date as far back as the 1940s, but I think it's much more recent. I bought it in a lot with another tatting booklet by Marjorie Willis from New Zealand. It didn't have a copyright date either, but they were probably contemporaries. I'd love to know the story behind a Dutch and a New Zealand publication coming from the same needlewoman of the 1940s.
