This little book by Exeter’s most well-known lace dealer includes ‘plain and explicit instructions for making, transferring, and cleaning laces of every description with about one hundred illustrations, outlines and prickings of the principle antique point stitches and Honiton sprigs’. The publisher also sold sections of the book in paperback form for those who could not afford the whole book.
