[n.p. 1888]. Dated October 1888 on front cover. With eight full-page paper-weaving samples, each in two colors of paper (green, brown, pink, blue, black, white, etc.). Slight dampstaining to edges of wrappers. Contemporary ink ownership signature of a Mary Webb and date to front cover. Internally quite clean and attractive. A very good example of a fragile Froebel gift album. Accordion bound in buff paper self-wrappers. 8 in. x 8 in.  ff. (some with paper-weaving on both sides). Item #17154
This is a colorful and well-executed example of Froebel gift fourteen. The techniques shown here include weaving in straight rows and columns, zigzags, and perpendicular designs, as well as attractive color-matching within the samples. The album also shows a difficulty progression from basic patterns to the more complicated designs.
