This is incredible!
A Rare Irish Book, Circa 1830s

I've seen many a rare book over the years - many travel books with great fold-out maps; art books with tipped-in plates, even sculpted books and miniature classics the size of matchbooks.

This is genuinely something I have never seen. It's unique and fascinating, and it's a real treasure.

Rare needlework instruction book; includes cloth samples of sewing, darning, embroidery, knitting and miniature clothing. Kildare Place, Dublin, Ireland (circa 1830s).
