Corticelli Book

Cousin Edna passed this book on to me when she was moving last summer. It once belonged to her mother, my Aunt Hilda, who is still going strong as the family matriarch and oldest member of my extended family. Cousin Edna is a retired teacher, but I think she would make an excellent archivist since each of the textile items in the two bulging bags was carefully labelled with its provenance. Some items belonged to my late Oma, some were Aunt Hilda's, and others were from my late Aunt Erika. It's nice knowing where the textile books, notions, and fabric came from. The Corticelli book appears to be from the 1940s. What do you think?
