Charles Peterson started publishing his Ladies' National Magazine in 1842 as a competitor to Godey's Lady's Book. It was merged into another magazine in 1898. There is more on the history of this magazine here and here.
I was pleasantly surprised to find most of the volumes of the magazine available online. The missing volumes were 1-2 (1842), 3-4 (1843), 9-10 (1846), 97-98 (1890), and 102-114 (1892-1898).
Not all of the magazines contained information on netting. Between 1842 and 1849 there were three years I could not find on-line; however, of the remaining five years, only two years contained netting instructions.
