WOOL TECHNOLOGY AND THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION: AN EXHIBITION

Published by Merrimack Valley Textile Museum, 1965

 

Vintage copy of Wool Technology and the Industrial Revolution: An Exhibition published by the Merrimack Valley Textile Museum and designed by Malcolm Grear in 1965. This book covers the entire process of turning raw wool into fiber, from shearing to sorting, scouring, picking, carding and spinning. It then moves onto textile production including weaving, the flying shuttle, the power loom, factory life, child labor, fancy weaves, the Jacquard loom, fulling, dyeing, and napping & shearing cloth. The cover is embossed giving the printed weave structure a tactile touch.

This extremely rare book is in good used condition, with some light discoloration to the cover (more heavily stained on the back, looks similar to coffee) and slight page bubbling from improper storage. Binding is in tact, and there are no markings or notes on any of the pages. Images include photographs and delicate etchings.

Dimensions: 8"W x 8"L
