Needlework fanciers might be intrigued by a facsimile edition of the “bible” of the craft, originally published in 1882 as “The Dictionary of Needlework.” Illustrated with some 800 wood engravings, and explained in the language of its times, it deals with embroidery, lacework, crewel, crochet and the like, both plain and fancy stitches (Arno-Crown; $6.95, $3.95 paperbound). – San Francisco Examiner, San Francisco, CA, 13 Aug 1972
