Old Embroidery Patterns

Continuing my search for old patterns in old books,this is what I found today in Google books.

The book is called The Boys' and girls' companion for leisure hours, ed. by J. and M. Bennett .There are just two editions (1857 and 1858)

Have a look at some of the patterns available in the 1857 edition. The first pic is a handerkerchief corner pattern

This is a border pattern

The third pic below is a pattern from the 1858 edition .It is supposed to be for a child's dress.

Those interested can download or read the 1857 edition here and 1858 edition here.
