Item description

LABOR SAVING LOOMS Draper Company, Hopedale, Mass, 1907 Third Edition Condition: Good This unusual book is half catalogue and half (as described on the title page) "a brief treatise of plain weaving and the recent improvements in that line with special reference to the Northrop Looms manufactured by Draper Company". 224 pages, illustrated with photographs, lithographs and drawings. In back are statistics relating to cotton manufacturing, sales of Northrop looms, weavers' wages and much more, all figures up to mid-1907. Lacking a dust jacket (as issued?), both covers have long vertical creases (common due to the very thin board covers), bumping and some wear on the corners, and much of the front cover printing has faded. Something sticky on page 113 has caused a rather large pull from that page to the opposite page, which also has a small hole (pp. 111/112))that has been taped on both sides to prevent worsening. Some text has been obscured on these pages (see scan). There is a large chip on a later page (margin only, no text affected) and margin tear/creases on three other page edges, two of them small. There are finger smudges on a few pages, but no markings were found and, due to the paper's quality, there is little yellowing. A scarce and (to me anyway) a close to unique item.
