1886 Embroidery patterns

  Today I came across  some nice embroidery designs while reading Ladie's fancy work
edited by Jenny June (aka Jane Cunningham Croly)  & copyrighted 1886 by A. L. Burt 
  a  public domain  Pdf  ebook found in google books'+fancy+work&ei=PC0kS_EVgqaQBI_Z8MAL&cd=3#v=onepage&q=&f=false

The first thing  I noticed that it contains almost all the needlework pages from a madam worth needlework manual that I have that was also copyrighted by A. L. Burt
but it also looks like it contains just the  needlework sections from other  Magazines that  Jenny June edited
if you are interested in antique  Victorian  needlework  - Crochet, Tatting, Knitting, Embroidery, Sewing etc.
this is a good resource book.  
today I extracted just the more interesting outline embroidery designs from the book.
