This is Pearsall's knitting pattern 417 which I think dates to the 1940s.

It contains instructions to knit the following:

Baby Socks - in two sizes to fit 1 to 2 years, and 2 to 3 years

Bootees - length from heel to toe 4"

Baby Slippers - length from toe to heel 3.5"

"Knitted Slippers and Bootees suggest a delightful and useful present for the Summer baby. The socks, too, are very attractive, the lacy ones for the wee girl, and ribbed ones giving a suitable severe look for the two-year-old boy. Made in Pearsall's Jewel Rayon, these will stand up to endless wear, and will wash without shrinking and losing their colour."

This is an original pattern. It has a far bit of wear. There are creases including a firm crease across the centre. The folded edge is thin and has split at the bottom, and there is a small hole at the centre of the folded edge where the crease is. Slightly grubby on the back page. All instructions are clear.
