Godey's Ladies Books on the Net

If you want to look for period needlework patterns and antique literature here are few links that are just recently scanned for download.  More and more of 19th century books are coming online.  They are public domain for the most part but did you know that clothing designers often get inspiration from antique patterns?  If you find public domain scans that are available for download, I would recommend you save them for reference on your own computer.  They may not be there tomorrow.

Publication History

Godey's Lady's Book began in 1830 as The Lady's Book. "Godey's" was added to the title around 1840. It was also known as "Godey's Magazine", using that name exclusively in its last few years. It ceased publication in 1898, and was absorbed by The Puritan.
