When the book was published (1184) there had been no publication containing a complete collection of known works such as needlework or lady's work with embroidery and knitting.

The author of the book, Therese de Dillmont (1846 - 1890) was an Austrian needleworker and writer. Her Enclyclopedie has been translated into 17 languages. She owned a string of shops in European capitals and is considered one of the most important pioneers in the international and multicultural work of hobby needlework.

This is a wonderful 2-book collection that was made possible as a gift from a very good friend.
