I got this in a box of laces. It looks like some talented young lady kept a sampler of sorts of lace she had made, stitching each one on to a page. There is no title or mark anywhere on this soft cover booklet, but there is a page on the inside back that has an illustration of a boy and a girl in a horse-drawn carriage (you can click on the photos to enlarge them), and two lines, which have been penciled in with a name: "Laura John". Or is it "Laura, John"? If anyone knows if keeping of a sampler was a common practice and from what era this might be from, I'd love to know!
