OLD WORLD LACE or A Guide for the Lace Lover. Originally published in 1920. many of the earliest books on weaving, textiles and needlework, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. This booklet is a concise guide for the student of old lace who does not care to go too deeply into the history of lace, or the technicalities of its making, but at the same time wants to familiarize himself with the various types of lace. It is hoped that a wider interest might be awakened, were it possible for one to gain the knowledge, in a simplified form, of the distiguishing characteristics of lace. The aim is to give the reader a general idea, in as few words as poossible, and with the aid of numerous illustrations, of the many and varied forms of lace, to what century they belong, and in what country they are made.
