Stunning antique embroidery book - dating from the early part of the twentieth century- c.1910 (1920s at the latest)

D. M. C. Library
MOTIFS FOR EMBROIDERIES No. 5
Th. de Dillmont, Editor
Published in France - Mulhouse (Alsace) - with English text

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

Large format softback book - comprises 15 colour plates, plus an eight page 'Introduction' and several pages of pattern drawings/tracings

Undated but obviously an early edition, possibly a First Edition. Probably dates from c. 1910-20 (1920s at the latest). Although reprinted later in the century, it is rare to find an early edition

The designs in this book are absolutely gorgeous. It was difficult to decide which ones to feature here! It is brimming with colourful embroidery designs - most of them florals - some make a bold statement, others are very delicate

In reasonably good condition overall. The cover is scuffed and faded. Wear/rubbing to spine. Small splits to top and bottom of spine. But the binding is tight. Internal pages are clean (just a couple of unobtrusive pencil marks)

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

Any questions, please feel free to ask
