Betty Ring is legendary among antiques collectors for her dedication to preserving and documenting American needlework, and this book marks the first of her major contributions to the field that she single-handedly transformed. A meticulous researcher, Ring worked for 3 years organizing a landmark exhibition of more than 100 samplers, silk embroideries, and related artifacts that opened at the Rhode Island Historical Society in 1983 and closed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art the following year. This catalog to the exhibition is filled with some of the most significant and beautiful examples of American needle arts ever stitched, illuminated with insightful commentary from Ring. Few copies were published, and the catalog is very rare. Must-have for dealers and collectors of American needlework.

Good condition overall. Cover: shelf and edge wear, corner bumps, wear and flaking along spine, foxing inside. Book: light foxing along page edges, toning on first few pages, dated and embossed on flyleaf. Inside excellent.
