This catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition "The first efforts of an infant hand" held by the City of Bristol Museum and Art Gallery from April 23 through June 25, 1983. The popular and charming embroidered samplers form a representative collection numbering two hundred and shared between Blaise Castle House Museum (with its accent on social history) and the City Art Gallery's textile collection, where the accent lies on the quality of embroidery. The core of the collection came as an anonymous gift in 1949. This is a catalogue of the complete sampler collection.
