The 1840s were full of change, especially in the social class system. By 1849, a middle class who could both read and write and afford entertainment like books and magazines had developed. Though free public libraries were still things of the future, many private citizens set up subscription lending libraries. One such individual was Mr. George Curling Hope of East Sussex, an area on England’s south coast about 50 miles (80 km) from London.
 
His library was quite successful and his wife even had a wool shop next door, so it comes as no surprise that Mr. and Mrs. Hope started publishing books and at least one magazine on knitting, canvaswork, embroidery, netting, and crochet from about 1842 to 1867.
 
Ladies' Needlework, Knitting Tales and Poetry: A Melange of Instructions and Amusement
 
Reproduced for you here are the title page, the editor’s “Address,” and the knitting content from the 1849 Knitting and Crochet: Tales and Poetry: A Melange of Instruction and Amusement for the Work-Table being the Year’s Volume of the “Ladies Needlework Penny Magazine.” The 17 patterns range from edgings and insertions to doilies, from an opera cap to an antimacassar, and there’s more—an enigma, a poem, a “household hint,” and a charming chart for “Magic Slippers”! Each is exactly as it was printed in the original.

Just purchased this.
What a great way to see through the eyes of a lady in the mid 1800's!
Beautiful patterns and funny comments as well as riddles throughout!
Most certainly worth $ .09! :o)

Enjoy!
Blessings,
