This book from 1984 is long-since out of print. One of the cool things about a book like this is that it highlights notable samplers from one person's collection (this is the Theodore H. Kapnek Collection). So, but for this book, you'd not. So, but for this book, you'd not get an opportunity to see these samplers. This listing is for the paperback copy, which has a blue background around the edges, but the same sampler on the front as you see in the picture. The book is in good condition, but of course it's, what, over 30 years old. So, the pages do have some yellowing, as is to be expected

This is a lovely book which came into being in a most unusual way: Theodore H. Kapnek states in the Foreword of the book that he began collecting samplers with his purchase of 3 English samplers around 1966 (he says it was "about 12 years ago" prior to the publishing of the book, the first edition being in 1978). He was hooked. About 5 years after that, he sold his British samplers to focus on American. It sounds like it was his avocation to collect all these works because he was counseled and encouraged by the author and is indebted to Doris Ashley of the Philadelphia Museum of Art how to restore and preserve antique samplers. There are almost 100 samplers displayed in about 124 plates (there may be several showing full-size and details of the same sampler) and roughly about 2/3 of the plates are in color.

In recent years there has been an explosion of research on school girl embroideries, thus making them quite rare to find in antique stores or garage sales because people are sophisticated as to their value. Mr. Kapnek found the niche soon enough before this that he was able to enlarge his collection for far less than his samplers are worth. This is to our great gain because of the help of the experts named above who were able to do the legwork and research both the samplers and the their makers. Every sampler is described and discussed in detail, pictured, and its maker is identified as often as possible with an entire appendix on genealogy. There is also quite a good bibliography which includes the following. I own these and can recommend them:

The A B C's Of Canvas Embroidery
The Golden Hands Complete Book of Embroidery
American samplers
American Needlework: The History of Decorative Stitchery and Embroidery from the Late 16th to the 20th Century

You may also find more recent books which used books like this as a springboard to do much more detailed research and have many more detailed photos all in color of interest:

Historic Samplers: Selected from Museums and Historic Homes (With 30 Cross-Stitch Charts for Authentic Reproduction)
American Needlework Treasures: Samplers and Silk Embroideries from the Collection of Betty Ring
Girlhood Embroidery: American Samplers & Pictorial Needlework, 1650-1850

Far from being an assemblage that is merely visually stunning, the Kapnek Collection provides the reader with a broad chronological and geographical range of Americana as worked by schoolgirls over a span of two hundred years. Basically a method of teaching the essentials of both practical and ornamental needlework, samplers have become much sought after and prized in recent years as fascinating examples of early American embroidery. The author, an expert on all types of American needlework, provides in the comprehensive introduction a study of the development of the sampler in America, with special attention to the types of schools where this work was taught, the materials and stitches used, and the sources of the designs.
'A Gallery of American Samplers" serves as both a useful introduction to this beautiful craft and as an essential reference work for collectors and art lovers alike.
