I purchased a 1941 (first published 1934) hardback copy ( I love old books) of this wonderfully detailed book. The stitches are arranged alphabetically, of course, including other nicknames for the stitches and cross references. The drawings and instructions are some of the clearest I've ever seen. I have many embroidery books, but I refer to this one the most often. You hardly need another reference book.
