Needlework Through the Ages, by Mary Symonds and Louisa Preece, Hodder & Stoughton Ltd. Publishers, London 1928, traces the history of needlework. It's large and heavy and I had to save my pennies for quite a few years in order to afford it.

    Is this book available? ... or can you recommend another that is?

    This particular one isn't for sale but there are usually some out there. They are expensive. I haven't found a modern book with the same scope. If you are interested in specific techniques, such as blackwork, books on that particular needlework style will give you more detail. A nice overview of embroidery is The Embroiderer's Story by Thomasina Beck. It starts with Elizabethan embroidery and continues through the modern day.
