This is a super item that is not only very collectible but is very usable – it’s a handkerchief edgings book (15 pages) with a copyright date of 1949 and it’s a first edition! Some of the page headings are so cute – “Blow and Behold”, “Right on the Nose”, and (my favorite) “Will You be Mine?, Dainty edgings with come-hither ways”. Very good condition.

Neat tatting pattern book with copyright date of 1941! I have always appreciated the art of fine tatting but didn’t realize there were different designs – with names – I just thought tatting was tatting. This book (23 pages) shows tatting designs of “Tradition”, “Wedding Bells”, “Butterfly”, “Fleurette”, “Debut”, and “Forsythia”...
