Paperback.  First edition.  Catalogue for an exhibition held in Glasgow in 1980.  ‘Writing in 1933, A.F. Kendrick described the embroidery produced at Glasgow School of Art under Jessie Newbery and Ann Macbeth as ‘the most significant development’ in the field of needlework of the end of the nineteenth century [….] From the large ecclesiastical hangings, through domestic embroidery to educational work, the exhibition illustrates the range of achievement of those who taught and studied at the school during its formative years and makes a significant contribution to this field of art history.’ Condition: A light scattering of foxing, otherwise very good.
