Fancy Work for Pleasure and Profit

This lovely book came home with me from St. Louis.

A very nice lady gave this treasure to me as a gift. 
It is amazing.

Circa 1894

Many pretty pages.

Click to enlarge and you can read about this Night Dress Sachet.

I absolutely love old books about subjects that I love! I will look forward to seeing posts about this book. Since it is well out of copyright, is there anyway to have someone publish it on the web so we can all have it? Or am I asking too much?

I plan to post pages of the book now and again. I hope you enjoy it!
