From Library Journal
The three volumes comprising Walker's knitting treasuries, published in 1968-72 by Scribner, have long been out of print. They have recently been reissued by Schoolhouse Press and should be seriously considered for purchase by large public libraries and textile collections.

The only negative is that the photos are in black and white. But, if you like knitting samples, you're bound to find lots of gems here. I've been surprised many times by knitting samples I've done where the photo hasn't done it justice.
This book is the first of four total. In my opinion, it's the best of the four.
Please note, there aren't any patterns for completed pieces. All the patterns are for the stitch patterns only, and you are expected to use them in your own creations. I wasn't looking for complete patterns, so I have been very satisfied with the book. I've used it to design a custom lace and cable cowl for my grandmother.
The photos are in black and white but are clear to see. Would be helpful if they were in color for the color-work section.
Solid, textured, lacy and slip stitch patterns are all in this. the color-work section mostly covers slip stitch designs.
