According to the title page, the full title of this book, published in 1872, is given as Take My Advice: A Book for Every Home: Giving Complete and Trustworthy Information on Everything Pertaining to Daily Life: Household Management; Domestic Cookery; Brewing, Distilling; Domestic Chemistry, Medicine; Clothing; Gardening; Law; Trade and Scientific Facts; In-door and Out-door Games; Domestic Pets and Pests; Etiquette and Manners; Ladies’ Work; and Something for Everybody, Etc. I've referred to it as Take My Advice.

To test my theory, I packed as many spools of thread into the bag with 100 knots (the bag on the left).
Then I took the same spools and packed them into the bag with 96 knots. I could not close the bag as tightly this time. You can see that there is an circular opening below and to the right of the cord-lock.
In a bag this small, four additional loops make a difference.
At least now I can tell the difference in the bags and in the photos.
