This is The Lady's World Fancy Work Book No. 44, which dates to April 1917.  The book was published quarterly on the 1st of the month.

54 numbered pages

Illustrated throughout

This was obviously issued during World War I and mention is made of War Economy in Fancy Work Materials.  Some advertisements also mention the war.  There is an apology about the inability to reprint an earlier issue and subsequently the pattern for the Blackpool Triangle and Lace for Tea Cloth have been included in this issue.

Contains instructions for the following:

smart crochet-covered hat shapes - "For summer wear crochet hats made with mercerised cotton are a real economy, for they can be cleaned as opten as required, and it is an easy matter to alter the shape once one has mastered the making of them."

crocheted chair back cover - basket of flowers (as seen on front cover)

An absolutely wonderful edition!

The booklet is in good condition.  Slight wear to folded edge.  Address written on back page in pencil (delivery address I think, which has faded over time).  Edges are generally good with slight wear, staples are rusted and holding firm.  No rust on the pages!  Tiny tear at top of outside pages at fold.   Given that this is 94 years old it is in lovely condition!
