"Here the are my thoughts about this piece.
When Nancy mentioned Leni Matthaei, come to my mind the book I have in my shelves LENI MATTHAEI by Inge Mühlensiepen. The book is in German, so I cannot understand the text.

As lacemaker, I am interested in share knowledge.
As designer, I am interested in share experience on lace designing programs.
As a fan of lace history, in learning from other lacemakers abroad my country.
Give us titles of lace books or articles you have written, that you want us to know about.
I have selfpublsihed 3 booklets on "Witchstitch lace", also known as Hinojosa lace.
I have been for 3 years in the Exceutive Board of the ACP (Ass. Catalana de Puntaires, Catalonia-Spain.
Would it be easy for you to buy another copy of the magazine's issue on Binche and send it to me? I can pay you for the magazine and postage in euros through PayPal.
I expect it wouldn't be easy, however, so can you send me the contact info of the publishers so I can try to buy a copy of this issue? my email is email@example.com. I'm rather a Binche fanatic so I really want a copy of this issue. :-)
I to thank you and the other's for opening up a discussion on Hinojosa lace. I went to your site and saw the books, but am still undecided as to which one I should get first as a beginner. I didn't do a lot of searching yet, but I don't remember seeing prices listed either. I was in a hurry. I don't know where you are in comparison to Roseground, but I'm wondering about the S&H on books from you. I've ordered from Roseground before and didn't fine the S&H that bad. I'm hoping you can help me out here. By the way, a nice site you have...!
Your explanation about Hinojosa and your booklets was very interesting and very useful. I think your idea about opening a discussion is a good one. I am going to start a DISCUSSION in the BOBBIN TAPE LACE group. Perhaps it will help clarify things.
Today I received an email from Joy McKenzie who is asking about "kernel stitch" used in Hinojsa (I believe). I have one of your booklets on that style, but that particular stitch does not appear among the few named stitches in your book. (SPANISH BRAID LACE "WITCHSTITCH". I am hoping there is a larger repertory of stitches, including this one she is trying to find out about. Can you tell me how it is made, or do any of your laces posted here contain that stitch?
Thank you Carolina. I made a copy of your picture of the EB, so I can make my own from that. I will look forward to making it. It's been awhile since I made lace and this will be good to begin again. I love your lace photo's. You do wonderful work.
