SOLD Thanks Be To My Friends - Samplers From Vassar College Catalogue * £8 €12 $18 Shipping Included

Thanks Be To My Friends is a catalogue of a 2004 exhibition from the collections of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Centre at Vassar College with a special introduction by Joanne Lukacher.
Joanne is famous now for her wonderful book on the Norfolk School Samplers : Imitation and Improvement.
This is an A4 softback catalogue of 16 pages documenting some 35 samplers.
The collection has some lovely pieces and it is hard to be certain of any favourites. I do like the samplers shown above, and it is always a delight to see Italian samplers.
This is the standard layout for the catalogue and on this page you can see 2 Norfolk School samplers in the lower right hand column.
There is also a Dutch sampler, possibly from Middleburg, which can be seen top left on the page shown above.
