Historic Articles about Lacemaking from 1900's

I was researching something else and stumbled across this interesting collecting magazine called The Connoisseur from about 1900. Along with other intriguing items, some of the issues had a section on Lace.

This issue has a particularly interesting and well illustrated article about English needlepoint lace.

Imagine seeing some of these pieces in person. I can't imagine the amount of work involved. Just beautiful!
