Go to your local library.  Ask which librarian does interlibrary loan.  Be
very, very nice to this source of wonderful things.

For 50 cents each, my local library has brought me blackwork books from all
over the country, to borrow for 2 weeks.  You can get a LOT of patterns
that way!

You could make a period sampler - which just means doing a little bit of
each pattern on a piece of cloth for future reference.
