SUMMARY- There is a nice selection of traditional patterns in this booklet, and she wasn't stingy with the tatting patterns. Photos are black-and-white on good paper and the instructions are in written notation with few breaks. It's also very small print. It is marvelous holding something in your hands that is 100 years old. The copy I bought must have been stored in a trunk or box with a sachet - it still smells of flowers when you open the pages. Mine is a reprint, so the Table of Contents may not be complete. It was common practice to not worry about setting back up all the pages. I've marked the ToC entries with the discipline used to make up the pattern.
