Don't know if anyone mentioned this book. I just picked it up at EGA
Seminar in October. Don't ask what I paid!

collection of John and Elizabeth Mason) by Richard Shorleyker

the same date and the 1624 version by the Bodlein Library. This book was
intended for the lacer and embroidery.There are 3 intro's, one by the
person publishing it, one by the Director England's EGA, and the last by
S Levy(formerlyof the V&A) who gives a short dialogue of books available
then, was we know now, (2 of the designs are on textiles at the V&A),
