Samplers by Rebecca Scott and Donald King's Samplers from the V&A are the 2 books. They are both softback. The first book is in virtually new condition, and the V&A book is in good clean condition with just a creasing to the top right hand corner.
Scott's book has over 120 pages and is profusely illustrated
and includes many Quaker and orphanage samplers.
You can see the crease mark to the cover here. King's 1960 work is a classic and again is densely illustrated in black and white with 89 plates.
There are excellent early samplers
with band samplers and spot motif samplers
and there are samplers from overseas also - we should see more Spanish samplers - they demand appreciation!
