Collection Scope and Content Note
Show all series level scope and content notes
The Jacob Rohland pattern book contains over 100 patterns for textile weaving. These reflect a range of popular folk designs, ranging from simple geometrical motifs to more complex representations of birds, houses, or flowers. Each pattern is accompanied by the tersest of notes in Rohland's hand, such as "diese gibt eine über aus schön arbeit."
The notes are written exclusively in old-script German, with the exception of an extremely brief note in a later hand written in Hebraic script.
