60. APPLIQUÉ--Satin upon velvet, outlined with two threads of gold couching.

61. APPLIQUÉ PANEL--Designed and executed by Miss Mabel Keighley, illustrating a poem by William Morris. (The property of the artist.)

62. A. COUNTER-CHANGE PATTERN, INLAY OR APPLIQUÉ.--Yellow satin and crimson velvet. The outline, which is in gold, falls chiefly upon the yellow, so as not to disturb the exact balance of light and dark, which it is essential to preserve in counter-change. Part of a stole. Spanish. 16th century (V. & A. M.)

B. APPLIQUÉ, of deep crimson velvet upon white satin, outlined with paler red cord. The outlines, meeting together, form a stem of double cord. Italian. 17th century. (V. & A. M.)

63. APPLIQU&Ea

I tried opening it both in pdf and html format, and then in .rtf. I found that all illustrations have been replaced with little bracketed notes:
[Illustration: 4. CROSS-STITCH.]
This makes it pretty much useless for learning how the various stitches are made or used. But if you already know what they look like, the text is mildly interesting.
