I just looked through my copy of Crewel Embroidery (originally copyrighted in 1962, but published, I *think* in 1973, given the inscription inside), and couldn't find anything resembling those embroidered miniatures in her Embroidery Book. There were a few color photos, but mostly of embroidered furniture and a couple of pieces of clothing. Lots of b/w.
Her book "Needlework to Wear" has a *lot* more color photos, but again, nothing of those little girls.
I like those miniatures in the E.B. Thought it was a very clever device to show off the different styles of needlework!
Dang, now I've got myself an embroidery jones.....la, la, la, I'm not listening...I've got yarn to spin.....

Subject: [HNW] question about Erica Wilson book(s)
In the Erica Wilson Embroidery Book, she opens each chapter with an
image of an Elizabethan child (based on the miniatures by Oliver).
Unfortunately in *that* book, they're all in black and white. The
Goldwork and Stumpwork book has the color pictures from those 2
chapters. I'guessing that the Blackwork/whitework book has those two
figures "in color" (ok, "in glossy").
Does the Crewel Embroidery book have color copies of the Crewel and
the Needlepoint pictures?
