This book traces the history of samplers in Britain from the late sixteenth century onwards, and includes examples of long, darning, map, school, stitch and plain sewing samplers, as well as those associated with great griefs and joys. Written by Britain's leading experts on the subject, and illustrated with superb photographs of a great range of samplers, this title provides an ideal introduction for the collector, art historian and social historian of these amazing embroidered pictures.
