I happened across an article about a lace artwork event, and it linked to this website with lots of Swedish lace that I wouldn't have found otherwise. There are some cute old lace roller pillows in there too.

Minnesota artist finds new ways to look at old lace in show at American Swedish Institute

Small snippet: 

When Swedish immigrant Carolyn Hjelmerus came to Minneapolis in 1889, she brought with her a bobbin lace sample book.
More than 130 years later, Minneapolis artist Amy Sands discovered excerpts from the book in the American Swedish Institute's online archives. Locked out of the museum by the pandemic, Sands continued investigating online and through Zoom sessions with ASI staff, who located the book and sent the artist a digital copy.

In 2012 the Minnesota Lace Society sponsored the IOLI convention, and there was a fairly big exhibition of Swedish lace at the Institute. They worked with People in Sweden borrowing their didactic material, hosted Swedish visitors, and even I sent a lot of equipment and some lace.

There was also a Swedish sample book there, and the MLS sponsored it's restoration.

I would love to see more pages from that book.

It sounds like they made a digital copy. I wonder if they could make that available.
