SOLD Textile Society Journal Volume 39 - As New - £12 €30 $60 Shipping Included (Australia and New Zealand $65)

I have literally just found this journal at the bottom of a file of papers and taken off its cellophane wrapper to scan it. Its 104 pages are pristine.
This was a truly excellent edition of the journal with masses of historic needlework and textile interest.
I have just scanned the title pages of the articles - which don't have the best images - for you to see what is in there - it is colour image packed - but these are seriously researched articles
by very well regarded authors such as Mary Brooks writing on changing views of 17th century embroideries. Joan Kendall on the fabulous Hatfield House tapestries
Nicola Bowe on the embroidered sodality banners of Ireland
Jacqui Hyman on early Mamluk textiles
an article on the Rachel B Kay-Shuttleworth collection at Gawthorpe Hall
William Morris textiles
the vast collection of cloth samples held in the Board of Trade Archives
as well as book reviews - of the Feller Needlework Collection and Silk samples from Ireland. The entire journal is rich pudding indeed for textile lovers... pace yourself!
