    I felt the need to post some more pictures! Enjoy! :^D
    I posted the old sewing machine in the first post, and started with the new sewing machine in this one! How would you like to sew something on the new one? Maybe easier by hand! LOL

      Is this an original Godey's Lady's Book? Yes, it must be. Very nice! As someone who sews, and my mother and grandmother....this is something I've always looked for, but only have reprints.

      It's such a great book, with so much fashion, and daily life information, from the day! Thanks so much for your comment, valentino, I wish I could copy every page, and show it! :^)
      You're all so nice to stop by to take a look, and give some love! It really means a lot! Thank you! :^D

      billretirecoll, I used a mixture of single page and two page links on this one, as some of them didn't quite match up, but some of them did:

      THE NEW SEWING MACHINE

      https://archive.org/details/godeysladysbook1863hale/page/234/mode/1up

      PAGES 186 & 197

      https://archive.org/details/godeysladysbook1863hale/page/186/mode/2up

      PAGES 568 & 569

      https://archive.org/details/godeysladysbook1863hale/page/568/mode/2up

      I was trying to figure out what make and model of sewing machine was in that "THE NEW SEWING MACHINE" image. Grover & Baker did make a model with that large platform, but those large gears seem out of place.

      It's possible that it's Singer's famous 1851 model, but that seems a bit dated for 1863:
