Beaton's Book of Needlework from 1870
The Gutenberg Project lists thousands of out-of-copyright books online
for free download. I found this gem from 1870 – "Beaton’s
Book of Needlework." It includes illustrated directions and
patterns for embroidery, tatting, crochet, knitting, and several other
obscure lacemaking and needlework arts. Added to Crochet
and Knitting and Needlework.
