Godey’s Lady’s Book was a popular book produced for women in19th century America. It contained articles, poetry, and fashion illustrations. These illustrations are charming and of interest to anyone interested in costuming but I like the instructions on how to make various needlework items.
There is also a second site devoted to Godey’s Lady’s Book which has broken the pages up into categories the crochet, knitting and needlework patterns have been classified under work.
Swell — more antiquarian needlework! I love it. Thanks for the post.
