M & H Sporting Goods was a giant in its day, but until now they had for me been synonymous with fishing equipment. It seems, however, that they had a radio division and this is its catalog.

Price: $20.00

Publisher: Birmingham, Alabama, Birmingham Museum of Art: 1986

Edition: Reprint

Seller ID: 28188

Condition: Very Good


The story of handmade lace has always interested me. Those who wore it were rich - those who made it went blind. At one point it was so valuable that dogs were relieved of their fur which was replaced with a fur "coat" that was stuffed with lace so it could be smuggled. I doubt that story is in here, as the focus is on the exhibit which was held in 1984. This was a second printing in 1986. It covers needlepoint lace, bobbin lace, bobbin applique lace, machine lace and imitation lace, plus lace clothing. Booklet measures 8-1/2" x 11 with 42 pages. All photos are described at back. V...
