Old Point Lace and How to Copy and Imitate It"

By Daisy Waterhouse Hawkins. Published in London by Chatto and Windus: 1878.

An interesting Victorian crafts book showing the reader how to imitate 17th century Flemish and Italian point lace patterns. Most interesting for the 17 folding plates showing lace patterns, some printed in colors.

Hardcover. 5.5âex7.5âe, 21 pages plus 17 plates, some colored, and a 35-page catalog of other Chatto and Windus books. Publisherâe(tm)s decorated card covers, with the original green cloth and gilt decorated spine. Ex-library with stamps on the title page and several other pages, and the plate margins (see our images). General wear, covers somewhat scuffed, some soil throughout, front endpaper removed. Despite the "ex-librariness" of this copy it retains its interest as a Victorian lace-instructor in the original, highly decorative, binding.
