The Craft of the Crochet Hook by Flora Klickman

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

A delightful vintage collection of crochet patterns with some tutorials, originally published by The Girl's Own and Woman's Magazine in 1915. This is a fifth impression. The majority of patterns, printed in clear text on clean pages, are illustrated by small monochrome photographs of either stitch patterns or finished items.
Apart from unsurprising wear to the cover (see image) it is in very good condition, particularly when considering its age.
At both ends of the book are fascinating adverts of the period, e. g. "The Mistress of the Little House", edited by Flora Klickman, subtitled "What she should Know and what she should Do when she has an Untrained servant"; "Fry's Pure Breakfast Cocoa" and a recommendation for The Girl's Own and Woman's Magazine as "...in the highest degree interesting and helpful to Girls and Women of the Middle and Upper Classes".
