'A Schole-House for the Needle' by Richard Shorleyker

I was just wondering if anyone has the reprint copy of this book? I have received some research material relating to the English embroidered shirt that I posted about a while back. The info says that the motifs on the shirt are from Shorleyker but I don't think they are. I have a copy of the V and A version of Shorleyker but not the 1632 edition that has been reprinted with additional patterns. What I need is information about the spot motifs (ie not the lace patterns). Can anyone help me?
