English Embroidery - I - Double-Running or Back-Stitch
Publisher: White Press
This is a vintage handbook on double-running or back-stitch, with diagrams and scale drawings taken from seventeenth-century samples and other sources. It was originally intended as a practical aid for embroiderers, especially those interested in English embroidery. "English Embroidery - II - Cross-Stitch" is highly recommended for modern readers with an interest in embroidery, and it would make for a useful addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: "Sampler from Egypt, belonging to Prof. P. Newberry", "Top portion of English Sampler. Dated 1661. 368-1907, V. & A. M.", "Lower portion of Plate II", "English Cross-Stitch and Double-Running Sampler, from the Collection of Lady Egerton", "Diagrams from a Sampler belonging to Mrs. Clement Williams", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
