This is only the second time I've ever had this for beautiful book for sale -- it's not seen too often. It's oversized at 8"x11" and is enlarged from the original of 1897. The booklet is tightly bound, but shows a small loss of paper at top of spine and a small chip to spine edge of front cover visible in photo. There are also a few dark stains to front, but these are not highly visible due to the darkness of the green paper. The author subsidized her effort with national advertising at both front and back. The text is illustrated with both black and white and color images. Much information on technique, equipment, borders, corners, the study of color, and embroidery. A very handsome item by an early woman entrepreneur. Mrs. Houck even sold the frames needed to do the work.
