Hooray for the Uninformed 

As many folks know, I'm an avid collector of early needlework books and design charts. Sometimes I rob Peter to pay Paul and spend more than I should (but I have very few other vices) and sometimes I luck upon an e-Bay seller who doesn't know what they have. Then they list these little jewels in sections that are sometimes quite odd.

If I'm clever and find them; and other ravenous buyers don't find them; I dance with delight.

In that regard -- I now have some five little 19th century pattern books coming my way for the grand total price of $14.50. Much, much, much less than I paid for the A. Rouyer I'm stitching from at the moment.
