19795 Manuel des Demoiselles by Mme Celnart.

Manuel des Demoiselles.

Metiers "tels qu la couture, la broderie, le Tricot (knitting), la Dentelle (lacemaking), la Tapisserie, les Bourses (purses) and just about everything else down to the removal of spots. It is followed by an index and a table of contents and three pull out pages of diagrams with some hand colour: one with patterns for clothing, one with illustrations of bobbin lace and needlepoint, and one charted for embroidery or other needlework.

This fascinating manual was frequently republished and revised by the author and is written in a non-intimidating style.
