Found another old embroidery book in the vaults of the Danish library. This one is from Eivor Fisher and was first published in 1952.
Not only gives it instructions on a number of stitches and examples. It also contains a number of drawings which one can copy.
Wouldn't mind to have this gem added to my bookcollection.
This book is written in Swedish but it is also translated in English in 1953.
Hope you will come across it one day and that you will take a peak inside.
