From the cover: “Isabella Beeton was the 19th century English lady who achieved world renown with her classic volume on cookery and housekeeping, Now modern readers can benefit from her expertise in knitting, crochet, embroidery, tatting, netting and lace work. This charming book is more than a nostalgic memento of bygone times — it is a practical guide which can still be used today. After all, the art of needlework has changed little in its essentials since Isabella Beeton’s lifetime. This attractive facsimile edition will give a taste of the elegant Victorian era — the heyday of creative needlework — in which Isabella Beeton wrote and will delight anyone with an interest in the crafts of the needle.”
