The thistle design itself is worth the price of the book. Of course this is a book that was edited before diagrams became common place and also Dover is not the company with the highest production values, so don't expect a great deal of information on lace knitting. The book assumes you know what you're doing by now.
Still it's a classic and because it is so cheap and on the verge of being impossible to find, a self respecting lace knitter ought to snatch it up, even if only to sit on the shelf for later.

These lace patterns make great baby christening blankets for an important gift, or a wedding shawl.
If you make a tablecloth, you can take a simple cardboard decorators table, drape it with a plain round of colored or neutral polished cotton and then put a handknitted tablecloth on it and have an accent piece that is incredibly beautiful (a decorator table has a cross-base and round top made of particle board or cardboard. You can put a glass round on top, but it isn't necessary. They are very inexpensive.) This is especially nice if you have Victorian or country decor.
The book is a joy to look at and read and the instructions are clear and well presented.
