by Jeff Hopewell
A very useful booklet which covers the history of lacemaking in England - both East Midlands and Honiton - as well an outline of the origins of Continental and other laces.
The sections on bobbins, prickings and other lacemaking tools and equipment and on 19th century bobbin makers are particularly useful for those who collect items from that period.
A popular booklet, now in its fourth edition, by an author who many will remember for his lace day talks, who is also a Church of England clergyman.
