Vintage / antique cross stitch emroidery book (published in France)

D. M. C. Library
Th. de Dillmont, Editor
Mulhouse (France)
Text in English

Dimensions: approx. 11.5" x 7.75" (approx. 29cm x 19.5cm)

Large format softback book (with a vibrant red cover) - comprises 24 colour plates, plus several pages of pattern drawings/tracings and a 20-page 'Introduction' (with instructions for each design)

Undated but obviously an early edition, possibly a First Edition. Probably dates from c.1920
This book is absolutely stunning. I can hardly bear to part with it! It is brimming with colourful embroidery designs - all of them traditional Turkish patterns. A variety of embroidery stitches are featured - including cross stitch and flat stitch

In good condition. Binding is tight though it is working loose from the contents at the top. Scuffing and creasing to cover. Small tears to back cover. Ink inscription to front cover. General age discolouration/tanning . No major flaws. Internal pages are clean with no stains, tears or annotations. They do not appear to have been handled a great deal

I offer a combined shipping discount - please refer to 'Shop Policies' for details
Shipping charges are usually estimated (particularly for combined shipping). If I find that I have grossly overestimated the shipping costs (after allowing a small amount for packaging) I will, of course, refund the difference
