Most of the 1840's knitting books on Google are very useful. This one could be, too, except that the file is incomplete: The Table of Contents listing for pages 15-66 is missing. The Table of Contents lists page numbers through page 250, but the file only goes up to page 80. Pages 13 and 14 (page numbers from the book, not Adobe page numbers) are missing. Pages 54 and 55 are missing. Pages 65 and 66 are missing. The file breaks off at page 80, although the table of contents lists pages through at least page 250.
